My friend and I stayed at Nomads Brisbane for two nights, and we shared a dorm with 4 other people. Sharing a dorm was a great way to meet new people from all around the world! The room was alright and the showers and bathroom better than expected. The "Down Under Bar" smelled really bad but the prices were pretty...

I've been backpacking for 5 weeks along the entire east coast, and I can honestly say my one night at Nomads Brisbane was the worst accommodation of the lot (and I stayed in tents and on boats during my trip). The staff couldn't answer my questions, they took 10 minutes to get to the main desk, there were no towels,...

It had a really bad kitchen, it was okay only to stay one night but that was it. They where good at helping you book your trips, but otherwise, the facilities was not good . I wouldn't recommend it, unless you're only looking for a place to sleep.

Location was pretty good, could walk to literally anyway on the cbd. Receptionist was pretty helpful. Showers were generally clean as well. 6 share Room was a bit stuffy though with only one fan. Only stayed there for 1 night but it looks like a lot of them have been there for a while. Would definitely consider this place if...

The building must be over 100yrs old and never restored. Painting falling off the walls. The lift reminds of a horror movie. Not only ancient, but scary. Bathrooms are yucky. Vents above showers stuffed with mould and dust. Rooms are super small. I stayed in a single room. It was lterally just enough for a single bed to fit. It...

We stayed here for two nights in a private room. A bit over priced the room is very basic and small. No fan or A/c in the rooms. The kitchen was really hot with not enough fridge space. The showers were good and toilets were very clean. Discounted drinks and food in the bar downstairs is a bonus and directly...

Made the mistake of not reading about this place before booking. Staff were kind - when you could get their attention. The lift is kinda quaint and interesting for about five seconds before you realise how old and crap it is. Often doesn't operate at all. I was initially in a room with a window that wouldn't close that faced...

Myself and 5 friends stayed here for two nights as a part of our package deal for travelling. At first glance the building is obviously dated and has some history to it. An old building unfortunately equalled no air con. Each room has a singular standing fan which is as powerful as a hand fan. When checking in I advised...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Nomads Brisbane has everything a backpacker could want, with our five floors offering a wide variety of rooms to appeal to everyone from the newly-arrived to the newly-wed, including dormitory and private rooms. All rooms are secured via electronic keycards, while you can keep your valuables doubly secured with our supplied lockers. Linen is also provided so there's no need to bring your sleeping bag! But that's not all. Our rooftop terrace is the place in the Brisbane CBD to catch some sun, chill out, have a BBQ or just watch the world go by while you wait for your laundry in one of our three laundry rooms. If the sun's not your thing then we also have common areas to kick back, relax, and get some quality tv time; that or cook up a feast in our guest kitchen! If you're looking for work, why not let our Job Club give you a nudge in the right direction? Likewise, our friendly travel desk staff don't just know everything about the beautiful South-East Queensland - they can give you advice about anywhere in Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific! Downstairs the Down Under Bar is where you can go full on, flat out! Come on down to Brisbane's most famous backpacker bar where you can win great prizes, dance the night away, or even meet Mr/Mrs Right (or Mr/Mrs Right Now!). If you're after something a little quieter then our Zi Bar does great food and coffee, with regular functions to keep you entertained. Dormitories are available to genuine backpackers only. Guests MUST be over 18 years old to stay at Nomads Brisbane Hostel. ... more   less
