I imagine it's because the lone pair on the N forms a co-ordinate bond with a H atom and has therefore accepted a proton - so is a base?

Correct me if I'm wrong someone - was just a suggestion

Yes I have a similar thought.. The lone pair on the amino group forms a dative covalent bond with the Proton from hcl
