The Base X Backpacker Hostel, sometimes just called “Base Sydney” is one of the best-located hostels in Sydney. I would say that it is quite a reasonable option for backpackers who are looking for a place which is not like some other hostels which are very dirty, messy or noisy.
It is a good choice for a curious traveller on a tighter budget or someone who just looking for a place to stay for one night while having a stopover in Sydney.
What type of room to choose?
When choosing a backpacker hostel, always think about how big dormitory you want. Do you prefer to share a room with other 5 or 7 people or would you rather stay with just a few people? Are you travelling alone or with bunch of friends? It is always a roulette game what people will you be sharing your room with.
Even the best backpacker hostel can be messy, noisy or the room will just smell with the wrong people. That is the risk of Backpacker hostels.:-) Also consider if you want a bathroom in the room or shared bathroom.
How much does it cost?
If you are on tight budget and you really want to spend a few days in Sydney, the only way is to stay in Backpacker hostel which cost around $40 AUD for equivalent quality.
Every standard hotel price starts from at least $100 per nigh. Even for this price you might end up in an awful hotel with a dirty room which will smell. In addition, you might not even feel safe there. It can happen if you make a wrong choice (my personal experience) but we all learn from mistakes. Then you will be happy for choosing a hostel.
The advantage of the Base Backpacker hostel is that the reception is open 24 hours. The price for a shared 10 dormitory room starts from $19 dollars per night. If you want to have a smaller room for 4 people, it will cost you $25 per night.
