I have stayed at Base a few times over the last couple years and have always had a great experience. The rooms are clean, quiet, safe, and warm. Also the bar downstairs Loco has great drinks and food. Worth visiting even if you're not staying...More
This is a great backpackers. I stayed in the woman's only dorm and had a brilliant time. I would never usually have stayed in a dorm but am so thankful I did, I've made lasting friendships because of it! The bar is excellent, it's centrally...More
The good: very good location, clean and tidy
The bad: No parking, which is a hassle because to find a park in Queenstown can take hours
The ugly: free internet is only till 7pm. Its a dry hostel, which means you are forced to drink...More
This was not worth the cheap fair. 1. You can hear and feel the base from the club from 8-11.30pm if you want to sleep early you can't. 2. There's only one temp for the shower they only have boiling hot water there is not...More
We booked the cheapest room, which was on the first floor. The front desk staff were lovely and helpful. As I have read in the reviews the noise is loud during the night as there is club right below. However, if you're a heavy sleeper...More

Hi Richard, in the 4 bed dorm there is no under bed storage as these are no longer bunk rooms. We have a luggage storage at reception or there in ample space in the room for your ski bag, just no locker. The lockers in our dorm rooms wouldnt be long enough to fit them either. We also have a dry room, which is perfect for your boots and jackets/gloves etc :)
Thanks, Darelle Jenkins.

Thanks for your recent feedback regarding your stay at Base Queenstown.
You did comment on your room as cramped. With regards to the size of the room - the 8 bed dorms are actually not too bad in size, however when other guests don’t keep their areas tidy and use the under bed storage this can make others feel cramped. I am sorry that this was the case in your situation.
You mentioned that the noise of other guests kept you awake during the night. We have a night manager that does regular floor checks during the night to reduce this noise; however he cannot be in two places at once. We apologise for the noise you encountered during your stay.
I do hope that you do enjoy the remainder of your travels.
