  • I only stayed one very short night, but found the facility to be excellent. Private showers and bathrooms for each room, heated swimming pool, and $5 drinks at the next-door Lava Bar. Clean, comfortable bed as well, though the bunks do shake noisily when climbing on or off. 5

  • When we arrived to check in for the double ensuite room booked via travel bug the guy on the desk could find no such booking. We where not able to have the room because of this and instead given a room with four singles and where told there would be a double up for us and there would be clean towels. When we came back later, we opened the door to the room to be hit by a strong smell of damp and mould. No double bed was made up and no towels provided. The desk downstairs was not occupied, so we decided to just push the beds together ourselves. When we moved the bed next to the balcony door the source of the mould became evident, as the floor was saturated with water and growing a forest. The next morning we raised the issues with the woman at the desk who didn't care less. She said 'oh thanks for letting us know, we never actually go up to the rooms, so unless someone tells us we would never know about it'...OMG ew. Do not book here, there are WAY better places to stay. Never again BASE. 1

  • Great booking service, but rang to confirm booking after payment few days later and said they had no such booking. When staying there, partner found underwear tucked in a 'premade' bed, and staff were rude and adamant that it was not their problem. 3
