I checked in very late (around 1am) since my flight was late. I then tried to find my remaining bed in the dark of a very bad room. Everything was very small and narrow and the air inside that room was horrible. There was no possibility of opening a window and since I arrived late I had the top bed... More

Thanks a lot for your feedback, we know it’s really difficult to walk into a room in the middle of the night….trying not to wake everyone yet wanting to get the good night sleep you paid for. I’m not sure how we can adapt to ensure fans are not faced a certain way, it is really set by the people... More

The staff are SO RUDE!!! The rooms are REVOLTING!!! I'm demanding my money back! This place is an absolute joke!!!!!!! I'm Aussie and I've been around the world and this place is ABSOLUTELY DISGUSTING!!!! THE WORST accommodation I've ever seen!!!

It’s clear your stay with us came not even close to your expectations, being the manager it’s tough to see these comments but I’m also disappointed that we never met during your stay…I may have been able to change your experience. Cleaners do need to get into rooms and yes we vacuum ever room, every day. We do some times... More

Nomads is located in a pretty good part of the city, within walking distance of most attractions. The staff are friendly but the check in was very slow. I stayed in a private room with my boyfriend, and although the room was rather pleasant, I can't believe how expensive it was!!! The lift was pretty deathy, so I would recommend... More

we stayed at the Nomads for 1 night before our tour began and we were really positivly suprised - big room (6 bed dorm), clean and no smell. The staff was also very friendly and helpful. It is very easy to get from the hostel to the main sightseeing sights and the city circle tram is also very close by.

Very well situated but nothing more;poor reception dingy rooms bad service.The breakfast is tolerable if you ask for the set menu. telephone gave way in my room:reporting to the girls at the reception meant pure disinterest till a man came to the reception in the night.He responded well. Generally is Aussie style there do not care a hoot;yet friendly.

We only had one night there so it wasn't that bad but i would have recommend you to take another hostel tough. The kitchen is the tiniest i have seen in australia, toilets are unclean and there is only one elevator and it's very busy ( we were staying in the 5th floor). For the same price you can probebly...

I was in an 8 bed mixed room, lots of space, showers and bathrooms were always clean. Movie room and the bar downstairs were excellent pluses, had a great time! Only downside was the huge que to check in at 2pm, definitely could have made it quicker.

The room and staff were ok for a quick overnight. No significant problem with bathrooms, noisy rooms, and so on. Didn't use the kitchen. But there's no excuse in this day and age to have to pay for wifi, especially extortionate prices ($4 for 24 hours).

Well what can I say....don't get me wrong I am pretty open minded but someone went for a number two in the shower of this hostel! The staff weren't very helpful when we asked questions about the city! The kitchen is so tiny for the amount of people that are in the hostel! The only good thing about this hostel... More

I've stayed in plenty of hostels, but this might be the worst of them all. First of all, THE KITCHEN IS TINY. You literally could not swing a cat in there. Secondly, the beds are so squeaky even a small movement will make a large noise. Another annoyance was my key card to enter the room stopped working at least... More
