Hi guys,

Just booked into Base, Sydney from the 13th Dec - 3 Jan.

Is anyone else booked in?

Can't wait for Xmas and New Year in Sydney, especially as NYE is my birthday ;)

Nice one on booking! Was it expensive? I keep hearing the hostels are expensive in Sydney around that time, I will be about in Sydney that sort of time in my camper,

Big party NYE then, Sorted!

I would try and make sure you get a room thats not right above the club thats next door the scary canary or you wont get much sleep on you stay unless thats what your hoping. Rooms are good but cramped its one of the better ones though thats for sure!

Everything in Australia is expensive, all of the time!

I liked the Scary Canary though! And Base isn't too bad really, but as the previous poster says a bit cramped. Still great location.

PS - glad to see there is another big Everton fan on these boards Mollie!

Haha Steve, where you from? Once a blue always a blue, COYB!

For people that have stayed at Base, how big is it as a hostel? Is there only one of each dorm?

I'm from South-East England Mollie - you?

Base is quite a reasonable sized hostel, over about three of four floors as far as I remember and there are a whole number of dorms, can't remember how many exactly, but certainly far more than one each. The Scary Canary bar it is attached to is good fun too.
