Location wasn't the best but very helpful staff. Stuff going on every night to get you invovled, free wine and cheese night, free beer after the free city tours, trivia nights, beer pong tournaments etc. Very fun staff who really get to know you and want to hang out with you. One night we had one of the staff take... More

Good points - Pretty good bar, fairly nice staff, if you want to party Bad points - Utterly minute kitchen, so so small. Incredibly rowdy, beds are so so squeaky you can barely sleep for the squeaks. I wouldn't stay here again, and I wouldn't recommend anyone to stay here in all honesty. Not great at all. Plenty of other... More

We arrived and went up to the room to find my bed hadn't been made and I didn't have any linen to make it myself. There was a helpful girl on reception who got me some, but I did have to make the bed myself. The kitchen here is the most tiny thing in the world !!!! Unbelievably small, especially... More

Great atmosphere and brilliant place to meet fellow backpackers and the like. Bar area is very modern and staff are friendly and helpful- they'll happily set up beer pong for you and the receptionist ordered me a taxi when I was running late for my flight! A bit grungy and noisy plus the lift broke down when someone was in... More

The heater didn't work well and room was cold.The location is very good, close to shops and pubs, Federation Sq, China town...The receptionists were good and caring. There is a... More

The hostel is located in the city center, so is possible to walk to every place you would want to go. Also is near to the free tram station if you are lazy to walk. Also is close to Victoria's market so you can buy cheap food, souvenirs or cloth. The service was ok, and all were very friendly and... More

They were really great.... helpful, friendly and very patient, despite us having a mixed up in our bookings and we arrived late, it was rectified very proffesionally and quickly. The noise at the bar didnt really... More

Reasonably priced, clean, great atmosphere. Convenient location near both the Queen Victorian Markets and local clubs, pubs and bars. Only a 15-20 minute walk to the Crown Casino complex too. Staff were absolutely amazing and hilarious! Had a mixture of fun and safety for all guests as their number one priority! Bar was great, especially the themed nights, prices were... More

Arriving at Nomads, I was happily greeted by the reception staff and then the bar staff when I went down for a drink. The room was alright, no real space for storing anything and it looked as though the housekeeping staff didn't try to encourage guests to stay tidy if they were staying for an extended period of time. The... More

I stayed here for a week and was not impressed. The Room i was assigned was facing the back of the building and i could hear nothing but music all night long. The majority of the staff seem to be backpackers themselves and seem to be more worried about having a party than entertaining the guests. I am aware the... More

Dear Brizle87, I am sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy your stay with us. Just a few things, regarding the music, we only have a licence until 1am and therefore all music finishes at 12.30am. We have sound barriers to protect upstairs guests and hope that no guests is affected by this. Our Travel desk is open 7 days... More
