Stayed for 9 days recently in 3 different rooms. 4 bed, 6 bed en-suite & 6 bed mix. All the rooms were clean and spacious, there was lockers in every room except they were the usual nomads black ones that are just the right height for hitting your head off especially in the dark. The beds were very squeaky and... More

I stayed for one week in the Nomads Industries because it was recommended to me. The first impression was pretty good, the ground floor looks new with a nice bar and pool table. Internet is via Global Gossip, so you have to pay for it. The rooms (I hat ha 6bed dorm) are quite big with lockers for valuables. The... More

Me and my girlfriend stayed at Nomads for three nights. We lived in a 4-bedroom dorm with our window just above a party/BBQ-area. There was loud music every night until 3-4am, even on a Sunday (arranged by the hostel) and alot of yelling and stupidly drunk backpackers just a couple of meters from where people tried to sleep. I guess... More

The hostel is right in the middle of the city and you can easily walk everywhere. The kitchen is clean, but too small for such a big hostel. The fridge is too small, while we were there it was absolutely overfilled and we couldn't get our things in. The bar is modern and we enjoyed relaxing there in the evening... More

Dear Micmac, Thanks so much for your feedback. We have recently replaced the low sinks in the bathrooms and all showers now have hooks to hang clothes. We are also looking into the beds that seem to creak. I'm glad you enjoyed the rest of your stay and wish you well Kind Regards, Nick More

We had booked an overnight Great Ocean Road tour and although we booked 3 nights before and 2 nights upon our return from the trip with Discovery Hotel, they didn't allow us to leave 2 rucksacks in their (very big and very empty) storage room -...

me and my friend stayed at this hostel for around 4 weeks between Jan- Feb 2012. The hostel it's self is above average. The rooms were cleaned every day and so were the bathrooms. The kitchen is tiny, and therefore we tried to cook when others were not using it. As there is no common room area except the bar... More
