The bar and people are nice, that's about it. This is the worst nomads I've stayed at. The room is so small, I'd say the smallest hostel room I've been in, so much so that the door hits my bed every time someone opens it. There's not even a lot of storage so if four people have bags in it... More

I stayed at Nomads for three nights and had a great experience. The staff are on hand 24/7 and are always willing to help you. Even the cleaners were friendly and chatty. Nomads is in a good location. It is very central and only a ten minute walk from the main shops, bars and waterfront. The rooms are clean and... More

I stayed on and off for over a year in this hostel. It started off as great place to party, socialise and meet new people. Then they stopped people drinking in the hostel and the age group staying there added another 20-30 years. It became a very serious place lacking in any fun. they are doing major renovations to the... More

Beautiful hostel, really clean and new. Showers and rooms clean and spacious, friendly staff, great bar. Awesome, well worth the stay! Helen on the front desk was a superstar and helped us with everything we needed!

Having just written Nomads Queenstown a glowing review I'm sorry to report that the same cannot be said for Nomads Melbourne. This hostel is in serious need of a face lift, it's very run down and generally dirty. The staff aren't the most helpful or efficient and the bar area isn't particularly inviting. Use your money to stay elsewhere in... More

I ve traveled a lot around Europe and Australia and Nomads Hostel Melbourne is absolutely the cleanest hostel I ve ever seen. We stayed there for two nights, the hostel is located in the city centre, near Queen Victoria Market and near all turistic attractions such as the Free Tram Zone. Staff was very pleasant and nice, we asked a... More

We stayed for a long weekend at Nomads Melbourne and I have nothing to complain about. The reception was 24/7 that we could check in after midnight without any problems. Our room was clean and was very big. The location of the hostel is great, central but quiet - great to relax after a busy day of sightseeing in Melbourne.... More

For our first few nights in Melbourne Nomads was ideal. Perfect walking distance from the market to tourist attractions and china town. Rooms were a decent size with lockers. Toilet and shower areas cleaned regularly. Staff were very friendly, the bar and social areas were open to the public but couldn't hear the noise from upstairs. Wifi available in lounge... More

Plus sides : Reception is open 24/7 so we could check in at any time. Parking was $10 a day and right outside of the hostel so not far to walk to get our stuff out the car. Really bubbly and full of people, never see the same face twice as there's so many people going in and out. Had... More
