Social Backpackers”

Pros: Place is conveniently located to tram stop, shops, and the beach. Staff are very friendly and approachable. Toilet in within the room of shared bunk beds so that was nice. A very social place, with regular events by hostel, good place to meet people. Cons: Will have to put on linen given, and to remove them upon check out which is fine for a hostel. Not many charging points within room, and bunk bed moves when other person turns

A Great Hostel”

very clean, nice staff, excellent location, pleasant place to be
bed is very small

I greatly enjoyed my time at Base St Kilda. It was pleasant in almost every respect - very professional staff, cleaned daily, nice travelers, and a good value. The location is outstanding and really where you want to be, and easy access to the central area of Melbourne also. In short, it is one of the better hostels I've found.

Perfect location good fun party hostel”

A bit on the pricey side for an 8 bed shared room but welcome to Australia. I got lucky and met great people from all parts of the world. Also, not all beds were occupied during my entire week stay. Nomaads is another good alternative close by for money saving but kitchen facilities at Base are much better and the bar downstairs here is the place to be on a Monday night! If staying in St Kilda this is your spot because beach and Acland street are a stones throw away... #stay@base

Great location and friendly staff”

Good location, clean, friendly staff

This was the first time I stayed in a backpacker's and I was quite apprehensive; however, my stay at Base was nothing but enjoyable. The counter staff are friendly and helpful. They showed me around and explained some perks available to guests staying at the female sanctuary (free champagne at the hostel's bar at a certain time, lady's night, free towel and toiletries, etc). The room, including the bed and bathroom, was clean. Bathroom was spacious and there was hot water. Room also has an air-conditioner. Although there are 6 beds, the room did not feel cramped or stuffy at all, and received ample sunlight through the windows. The bar on the ground floor of Base has parties pretty much every night. Not my kind of thing, but it is always packed so I guess the parties must be good. It can get noisy at night. The female dorm is on the top floor (3rd) so it isn't too bad. Also, on my first night there was a free BBQ downstairs. Base is about 15 minutes by tram 96 from Southern Cross station. The hostel is adjacent to Acland St, which is lined with bars, restaurants and shops. Prices are incredibly attractive (look around! I got a pint of Coopers for $4 before 6pm, and a 300gm porterhouse steak with sides at $15). The beach is a 5-10 min walk from Base. I saw a penguin!
