After staying for a week in Base I have mixed reviews. Its in a great location to get into the city centre, with a tram stop just outside the hostel. There's also the bar where they put on events most nights, we liked the pub quiz!
However, it was such a shame that some of the staff were very rude and unhelpful, as other members of staff went over and above to be helpful and kind. I also found, as a solo traveller, it wasn't the most sociable hostel if you didn't want to drink all the time, and there wasn't really a nice communal area which wasn't the bar.
Everything was kept pretty clean, but Base could help themselves out by doing simple things like having bath mats in the bathrooms, so the whole place isn't covered in water after just one person has a shower. Or having one less bunk in each room so you're not ridiculously crammed in.
Basically, I think this hostel is a basic place to stay, which could be improved a lot with some simple changes!More
