One of the best if not THE best hostel I have been to here in Australia so far! From the outside it appears to be an average hostel, but then when you walk in it rather is like a 5 star resort. Being located right in the city it still appears like a proper holiday resort: Pool, nice parks, a... More

I slept in a 8-bed-house with 2 showers. That was awesome and you have to go in one of this little houses/bungalows, because a friend of mine slept in a normal room and said it wasn't very nice. They have about 5 washing machines and 3 dryers. The kitchen is ok and there is enough place to sit down. The... More

The hostel itself is great. Laid out in a really nice spacious way. The pool looked nice although I didn't get in and the beds were comfy. What I didn't like about the hostel was that you had to pay for wifi and the wifi was very poor unless you were in reception. Our room had a few cockroaches in... More

We booked a bareboat charter out of Airlie beach and stopped a night at Nomads before the Charter and a night after the charter. People were friendly, room was clean , beds comfortable and the shower had the best pressure.We took a king room which had its own bathroom,fridge and TV all for less than $100 in the middle of...

We stayed here 3 nights with our campervan. The location is great, right in the center of Arlie Beach and the lagoon. Also friendly staff and booking agency (mad travel). That was the main reason we stayed there. We put our campervan at the back, its quieter there, and the backpacker campervans are more in the front of the camping... More

Great hostel, one of the best we've stayed in. Super clean and the layout of the hostel helps mingling around the bar or the pool. Perfect location and would recommend the pub next door (beaches) for the $13 meal deal.

My husband and I were traveling in a campervan so I cannot honestly review the accomodation in the huts although they looked great from outside, roomy and well appointed. We loved the location as it is so close to all of Airlie Beach facilities, shops, attractions etc. Staff were excellent and informative. We were given a site at the rear... More

We had a great stay in nomads. It is well located with a lively bar and a good range of facilities (big kitchen). For travel advice you're better off going over the road to "Whitsunday on the beach" where the staff are much nicer. Major downer of nomads is the toilets which are a complete dive. Wet floors, shared with... More
