If one looks at the absolute energy levels of the HOMO and LUMO, the conclusion would be somewhat different; in fact, the smallest basis set, 6-31g*, significantly underestimates the positions of both the HOMO and the LUMO relative to the vacuum level, both with B3LYP and PBE0.
The energy gap between the HOMO and HOMO-1, which are both occupied states and, consequently, well estimated within DFT, is somewhat overestimated by all small basis sets.
From these plots, we can note that the HOMO is localized on the guanine, the LUMO on cytosine, and the HOMO-1 on adenine.
