Base Backpacker Hostel

Base have modern and friendly hostels all around Australia and New Zealand, and this St Kilda outlet gets hit with party-happy travelers harder than a Hard Rock Café in Vegas. The bar here is open to the public, so if you've been bitching about wanting to get out of town to go and find yourself, this could be a cheap alternative. Why fly to a similarly packed hostel in insert-Euro-city-here when you can sink drinks with Sven, right here? Your journey to self discovery is aided with some of the cheapest drinks in the city, accompanied by games that somehow always involve someone getting naked. It could even be you. Win.
