just spent an awesome couple of days at Base with great weather and great people. Really cool bar, especially the theme nights and drink promos. Close to the beach and all the cool things St Kilda has to offer. We will be back!

The hostel is a great party hostel which has fantastic events on every night. The rooms are not great but they are cleaned every day, only problem being is people not throwing out their stuff when they check out making it feel messy but there is nothing the cleaners can do about that.
