Base is hands down the most popular hostel in Auckland, and if you are looking for a cheap, no frills place to stay and an opportunity to meet tons of fellow backpackers, then it is the place for you. Located centrally in downtown Auckland, Base is walking distance from a variety shops, bars, and restaurants that Auckland has to offer. Shared dorms are available for as low as $25, while private rooms (some with bathrooms included) run about $90. And with a bar, restaurant, internet station, and movie-watching area, there is never a dull moment at Base, or a lack of opportunity to meet other travelers.

Stayed at Base just for one night, I booked a private room which was basically a stuffy, windowless, dark box. They boast having 500 beds at this location in the center of downtown Auckland and it is quite obvious they are trying to pack as many people in as possible. The bathrooms were not all that nice. There were lines at check in and check out and the overwhelmed staff were not all that pleasant. It was very centrally located but I preferred my stay at one of the other hostels a few blocks further from the center of the city; to me it was worth the walk.

All in all, it wasn't a great experience but I wouldn't write the place off entirely. If you were in Auckland looking for work (as many young people there on working holiday are) there did seem to be a buzz of an active networking scene. The hostel had postings about jobs and recommendations for job searches. It is right in the center of everything Auckland has to offer!
