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

I stayed at Nomads for two weeks, having been in numerous hostels in Australia - i highly recommend this accom when in Melbourne. It is very central, clean and Suze the manager is a legend!!! Coming from a hostel guru -- you will not be disappointed. Thank you Nomads.

I stayed at the Nomads Melbourne for a total of one week and was immediately excited for my stay thanks to some wonderful staff at reception. Unfortunately this feeling was only destined to last about 8 steps towards the elevator which I found was not working. After hauling my self and 30kg worth of bags up to the fourth floor... More

I stayed at Nomads for a few nights in the beginning of this year. Some of the smaller dorms are ok(less than 8beds)&if u r lucky u end up in one where the matresses don't look like they have seen both world wars. The bathrooms were only sort of clean. But that is more a result of the kind of... More

For a school group, the location of this hostel is perfect! 2 minutes from the Queen Vic markets, and 5 minutes from Melbourne Central meant we were ideally placed for a trip to Melbourne's many locations. The desk staff were friendly and ready to please, and check in was a breeze. The main downside was the numerous party rooms on... More
