Bianca was a delight to deal with and made me feel really comfortable as a out of town gal, who is uncomfortable in cities. She made my Sydney stay extra spesh. Great location and close to all of the sites I wanted to see.

Hostel is perfect, there is everything you need, it’s right in the city centre, next to a great club/ pub called scary canary and everyone is so nice. The receptionist Kileab was so helpful and lovely my whole stay

The hostel has friendly and qualified staff at the reception. The hole building is a bit old fashioned but still clean! Base Backpackers is quite central located, everything you will need is just a few minutes away.

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
