Hey there Anonymous, It seems you were happy with your stay in your words? However you rating says otherwise, could you elaborate more or maybe re consider your rating.

Room was small and noisy from the traffic. Check in system and room key was annoying - had to download an app and use that to access the room. Walked to the furthest away room & it didnt work. Had to wait for 5 mins before we were given a post it note with an 8 digit code to type in everytime you need to access the room

Hi Traveler, Thanks for your review. We understand that with so many young people the facilities can get messy at times. This is why we've decided to hire extra staff to clean the kitchen and communal bathrooms even more often so we can guarantee clean facilities for everyone. We hope to see you again in the future. Cheers, The Base Team

App needed th book in !!!

Pros: It was near where we needed to be, for our very quick over night visit to Sydney. The staff were very nice
Cons: The bed in room 106 The App process is annoying ...
Location: Close to Sydney CBD Darling Harbour The Rocks Circular Quay ... greatvfor walking everywhere
On arrival I had to download an App on my phone before I could confirm my booking even though I had all the booking details in an email and sms. Then the App process failed it took over an hour to confirm my room...lucky there is a bar in the Scary Canary. We had room 106 which came with ear plugs, thank goodness as the air conidtioning ducts in the room hummed all night. The double bed was uncomfortable and sunk to the centre, thank goodness there was the bunk up the top. The room was clean the sheets were fresh the price was good for the 7 hours we were there. The counter staff member Alexander was good.
