“Typical cash cow hostel”
Reviewed 2 March 2012

Arrived to broken glass over the floor.
Some of the staf were really nice but at 830 they force everry one into the bar with a bunch of rude meat heads who give you 5secs to move
No byo alcohol on site always a downer...but when u cant even sit in the common area its a joke
Got refused entry into the bar after having a smoke at 9
it seems the only thing you can do on a night here is spend money in their bar or be abused by staff

Stayed here in September 2011 and stayed an extra night it was so fun. Great location near the shops, short walk to the main beach.
Staff all great.
Food in the bar really good- bar on site is the main party place for noosa- lots of fun and entertainment. So your on site for the night! Free shuttle bus from bus station and back,
And free shuttle provided to local club after the bar closed.
Really good hostel

I stayed one night at Nomads in Noosa so that I could attend the triathlon. The staff were friendly and helpful. I was able to leave my bag and motorbike at Nomads from 7:30am on the day I arrived without paying extra.

I recommend the food in the bar - it's cheap and tastes great. The "Big Burger" really is big! And tasty!

I stayed in mixed 16 bed dorm. The dorm was spacious and the bunks solid (not those horrible ones that creak all night long). The mattresses were thick and generous (no feeling the slats). The ensuite in the room had one toilet cubicle, two sinks and two showers. They were adequate and clean.

Nomads does seem to be a bit of a party backpackers but the bar is far enough away from the rooms that I didn't really hear it too much.

The location is convenient to Hastings Street and to Noosa Central.

Room Tip: Rooms closer to the bar will be noisier on Saturday nights.

hostel is not far from the beach and really close to shops
room - were in an 8 bed mixed dorm with ensuite, room size was fine and they had 2 shower cubicles and a seperate toilet cubicle and then a sink and a nice big mirror!
we didnt use the kitchen - so cannot comment on that!
they did a free BBQ while we were there which was great and went KBs bar which was quite good!
we got a free pick up from greyhound bus stop, and free drop back - not very organised, they seem to share their van/picks ups with the YHA down the road, which means there isnt always enough seats in the van!

Good location, easy to get to Hastings and the beach but walk home is tough as it’s a big up hill but they do offer free shuttle buses. Hostel is clean and staff very friendly. The kitchen is very small and not all that clean. No free internet. There is a bar at the hostel and they hold events every night which can be fun. We opted for a 16 bed dorm which could be very noisy at night.

Room Tip: Rooms are big and spacious
