To be fair, I'll list the pros first ~ good location ~ clean shower room, good pressure ~ large kitchen … and it ends there. As for the cons ~ a total party hostel, full of young drunks yelling and stumbling about. Even after common area party ends around ten pm, people continue to talk and sing loudly, if not...

After a rather unpleasant stay at Nomads Brisbane, this hostel restored my faith in Nomads. I was very anxious about check in due to previous issues but checked in with no problems to find a lovely clean hostel. My dorm felt really modern and the bedding was extremely clean. I was also pleasantly surprised to find the unisex bathrooms kept...

Nomads Byron Bay was my second backpacker stay in Australia, this time I decided to spend two nights in the lovely little Byron Bay. Great location, which is a perk. Price was fair. There was nothing wrong with the backpackers at all, the staff was really friendly, the dorm rooms and facilities were relatively clean. If you're looking for a...

Had a 4 nights stay in Nomads Byron Bay. The hostel is in a perfect location right in the middle of lovely Byron Bay. ALDI and two bottle shops not even a minute walk away. It's a 5 minutes walk to the beach. The hostel has a big common area which allows you to sit together with others to have...

We were about to head out for a meal on the Friday night we arrived (4th November) when at 7pm two men from activities opened our closed door and let themselves in to tell us about burgers for $3! Not appropriate at all.... place needs a refurb too.

Just stayed at Nomads this past weekend, and I have to say it was absolutely perfect! So close to downtown and the beach, but given the great vibe of the hostel itself you'll never want to leave. My activity leaders Marv and Neil were both incredibly welcoming and showed us such a great time; I will certainly be returning soon!...

Very clean hostel, bedrooms and kitchen. Communal showers and toilets were also always kept immaculate, so no faults on cleanness. A free bbq was also provided on one of the days we were there which was handy for us budget backpackers. Right next to aldi and 2 bottle shops which made it even more perfect. Only fault was the lady...

This place is ok, staff are friendly and helpful, social areas and kitchen were good, however it was quite noisy at night! Our room was clean, however the toilets were all shared and they were pretty grim!! There were female only showers though so that was a relief!
