Friendly people and perfect location in city. Just 10 mins from Flinder station, 5 mins from South Cross Station. Good Stuff, The toilettes are really celar, the rooms are a bit cold in a winter time! I spent a nice time!

The place was pretty good, I wanted to do stuff around the CBD and I found it perfect as there was FREE trams everywhere and it was next to southern Cross. The hostel is pretty basic but meet what I needed. Happy for what I paid.

The hostel is in a great location in the heart of the city. Right by Southern Cross Station, easy access to the trams that will lead you all over the city, short stroll to the Yarra River which has such a lovely view of the city at night. The building itself is not fancy or modern, it's an old Victorian-style... More

So I checked into Nomads All Nations for a week while staying in Melbourne. The hostel is in a great location which is bang smack in the middle of the CBD. Friendly and helpful staff, nice rooms and good facilities. I was given a welcome pack which showed me all the good places to see in the city and there... More

Myself and a friend stayed here for 3 nights in July of this year. We have been travelling for months and this is the worst hostel we have stayed in. A girl in our room urinated next to our bags stole covers off our beds and was sick in a bin and everything was left, we had to clean it... More

Would recommend you stay clear! Its the kind of place you need to wipe your feet on the way out! Price is cheap and I guess you get what you pay for, however I would expect that the rubbish on the window which was there on my arrival would have been moved during my stay. This hostel was the worst... More

I can't understand why such place exists. it is very dirty, it smells bad, it is cold, noisy, from another age, nothing is clean. 25$ for that is stealing your money. Sleeping outside in the street is nicer. Staff is nice except managers Free wifi (slow) in the living room. Just don't go there if you can avoid it.

One of the worst hostels I've stayed in in Australia. Unfortunately I've stayed in this hostel for a fair while, literally only because of it's location in the CBD which was close to my place of work. Cleanliness was atrocious, the kitchen and bathrooms were in an appalling state 3/4's of the time. This is probably attributable to the guests... More

This hostel was very disappointing. The girl who greeted us on the front desk was friendly enough and gave us plenty of information on the hostel. A second member of staff was also very friendly and willing to help. However this is where the pleasantness ends. My bed sheets were covered in hair and I had to go down to... More

If you are in Australia to drink and party, than this is the place to be. There seems to be a large group of people there that knows each other and hangs out all the time. This is the only upside of the place. All the other ones that are advertised are to be honest nothing more than marketing. Free... More
