There are four base levels, from 'small' to 'very large' - these are the same four levels that aircraft also have (the aircraft size class). The base level corresponds to the largest allowed aircraft size level at this base. So if you choose a 'medium' base level you can only base aircraft that are in the small or medium size class to this base airport.

757 => "Size class    Large aircraft "

In simple and approximate number
level 1 really only does less than 20.
aircraft carrying 50+ pax need a level 3 base.
Level 4, I haven't done one yet but assume the 150 seat Jets may need a 4 base, and if you do try to send (change base or purchase) an aircraft to a too small base Sami has built in a rejection which mentions the base as being 'too small'.
It does of course vary with different aircraft of the same capacity I expect, runway length and service facilities also being a factor.
Do note that level 1 and 2 have no customs facilities, so the base country only can be served.
