Best location

Base Embassy has pretty big 8 dorms. Bathrooms are okay and cleaned daily. The kotchen is very big, but might not offer a seperate table for everyone during peak time. Staff was very helpful. Met very cool people there. It is basically at the city centre, so it's ideal for tourists of all kind.

Bad facilities

by ashadevi on 24 Nov 2016

The hostel is right in the heart of the city centre which is great for getting around. Biggest downside was the facilities, the kitchen was always dirty, even when the staff worked hard to clean the kitchen it was always dirty 10 mins later. The dorm rooms were dark but relatively clean. Generally everything felt like it had a layer of grime on it.... I ended up moving to another hostel.

Good choice when in Brisbane

by ABIvsWORLD on 22 Oct 2016 (Solo Traveller)

I heard that Base and Nomads Hostels were in the same family. IF this is the case, I suggest picking Base over Nomads any day.

I had a pleasant experience here. My room was a mixed dorm of 6. PROS: - location: it was central to everything a tourist would want and need - the staff were knowledgeab...

Very filthy!

by Spekpony on 06 Oct 2016 (Couple Traveller)

We stayed 3 nights in this hostel. We had a double room with private bathroom. The room was very grey and basic although this could be expected considering it being a hostel. However the room was very filthy! The towels had all sorts of stains on them, the bathroom and the bedroom were full of mould and other filth (you could not walk with bare feet) and the light did not working properly. However cheap a room is; it should always be clean!!!!!!
