It's a really good place, for me was the best backpackers hostel that I was in Australia till now. The bedrooms are big, well organized, and have a camping area. The crew also is really nice. For sure I will recommend.

This hostel is right on the main street. That meant that restaurants and shops were so close by. The space behind the street front entrance opens up to park like grounds with a swimming pool and flowering trees. We had our own room with private bathroom. It was simple and all we needed. We stayed here before and after a... More

My hubby and my two sons spent three days camping at the Nomad's in Airlie Beach including over new year's. It was the first backpackers we had stayed at on this holiday and even though we aren't really the 'typical' backpacker type anymore....married with two young kids, we all loved it. The staff were all friendly as was everyone else... More

I stayed at Nomads in Airlie before and after my Whitsunday trip in January 2015. It is by far the best hostel I have stayed at. Staff is friendly and accomodating - I asked to swap for an all-female only and they accepted on the spot. The rooms are clean, bright, the aircon is working and there were two showers.... More

Got an 8 sleeper dormitory which is four bunks. $30 each a night. Great location right in the middle of town. Has a swimming pool and its own bar which is very reasonably priced. Have stayed before and definitely will again. Best thing is everyone gets a key which makes it so much easier when everyone goes home at different... More

We were 3 girls in a 8 bed mixed dorm. We loved the room. Had a hoilday resort feel to this hostel. Air con wasnt great. En suite was very clean, lovely shower. Poor kitchen, luckily $5 pizza from dominos saved us.

We stayed here in a 7 bed dorm in December before our Whitsunday's sailing trip and it was pretty average. Beds were comfortable with a bedside light which was good, big shower and toilet facilities, kitchen was big but had to pay for utensils. Cockroaches roaming around the room wasn't very pleasant. Had to pay for luggage storage and wifi.... More

I was staying in Nomads Airlie Beach after my Whitsunday sailing tour. Just went there and asked do they have any available beds. They did have, as usually, and I was staying in 8 bed female dorm. There was only 4 girls, which was nice. You did have own power plug and light above your bed. That room was really... More

Hello. Thanks for your lovely review. Glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay. Unfortunately we do have to take deposit for kitchen equipment as other wise items go missing very quickly with our camper van guests. Hope this didn't inconvenience you too much. Enjoy the rest of your travels and we hope to see you again soon. More

I stayed here for a few nights while I did my Whitsundays trip & I absolutely adored it! The rooms were basic but all had bathrooms that were surprisingly clean for how many there must have been. It was quiet & I loved the whole set out, it was like a super cool little village. I loved it here when... More

It's a bit disappointing how much your stay depends on what kind of room you get. Stayed three nights in an apartment with a dirty bathroom and a loud air conditioner. When getting back from a boat trip we got to stay in one of the "bungalows" instead which was great. It almost seemed like two different hostels. Besides that,... More

Hello, Thanks so much for taking the time to right us a review. Any feedback like this helps us to improve. We try as much as possible to use our new bungalow rooms but during peak times of the year we do overflow into the back buildings. I am surprised to hear that you had issues with the cleanliness of... More
