Location was superb! In mainstreet, where all the clubs are, walking distance to shops and the lagoon! Rooms where nice and big. Had our own showers and toilet in the room (8 persons). Beds were comfortable and were cleaned everyday. you had to rent the kitchen equipment but that wasn't really a big hassle. Service was good! You could storage... More

Stayed there for 3 nights, comfy spacious rooms and v. clean. Great location in Airlie, minutes walk to all the major bars/beach/lagoon/supermarket. Ideal for solo travellers or groups and for those going on a Whitsundays sailing trip. Had no issues with checking in early on both occasions! Would definitely recommend.

Nomads in arlie beach is clearly an hostel for short term staying: the room was very clean and spacious, with a private bathroom, but there weren't any lockers neither wardrobes. The kitchen was very clean as well, but I had to rent everything at the reception (and I strongly recommend to arrive with your own knife cause theirs don't work).... More

We parked our van around the back of the hostel at one of the powered sites. It was really nice and shaded, backing on to an area with loads of trees. Was able to use all of the hostel facilities which suited our needs well. Could be loud if going to bed before midnight but earplugs sorted that out, no... More

Great location on the strip. Right next to all the bars (Everything is close by as it is so small). Hostel was only $30, the beds were comfortable and the showers were warm. The whole complex was huge and had a swimming pool and a bar. The bar was pretty cheap and is worth checking out in the evenings. Staff... More

Stayed there for a couple of night, and since I was travelling with 5 other people, we got our own room with ensuited toilet and 2 showers. Staff was really friendly, they checked us in earlier than anticipated- 7.30AM which was very nice of them. The room was big and clean, very nice stay. However they are strict about no... More

We pitched our tent here (not in tent city - right at the end of the campervan section) and it was a really good experience! We stayed a night in a six bed dorm after a long days drive and the dorm was clean, spacious, large ensuite bathroom which had two showers which was hot! We stayed in a room... More

We stayed at Nomads for a Stags/Bucks do for 4 days a few weekends back. Upon checking in the staff were super unfriendly but mainly the english female manager. We got taken back to our room which we found spacious but not cleanest and the bathrooms were in a state of its own. The beds were uncomfortable and bugs all... More

Hello - I am very aware of the party that you were travelling with. You guys were advised very clearly on check in about all the rules during your stay on the hostel. Including the no BYO policy of alcohol. These rules were broken numerous times throughout the stay. The cleanliness of the rooms was not brought to attention at... More

- People in the reception are rude and it's a achievement if they are friendly to you and are willing to help you. - Wi-Fi costs 4 AUD/ day or 12 AUD/ week. - There's also a really noisy bar inside the complex, so if you choose to stay in here, take the room as far from the bar as... More

Hello - Thanks for taking the time to provide us with feedback on your stay. Sorry to hear that you did not enjoy. I will try to address some of the issues that you have raised. Unfortunately with us having a campsite on site we quite often find kitchen equipment goes missing with our camper friends hence the reason we... More

stayed here two nights on either side of a Whitsunday sailing experience. As a senior traveller I was a bit apprehensive about early morning noise but the staff considerately laced me at the extreme end of this large property. As far from the bar as possible. While there was some noise in the early hours of one of the days,... More
