We came to byron bay and the rain was torrential, so i really wasn't expecting much but Nomads really rescued it. Such a great hostel if you're looking for a party atmosphere, every night was fun and there were tonnes of people in the common area drinking and having fun. If you're looking for a nice relaxed hostel then you... More

This place is bang in the centre of Byron Bay with the beach just minutes away !! The hostel has good facilities although the kitchen was never very clean (also don't store alcohol in the fridge, it very quickly 'disappears'). Free wifi is great. Mad travel booking desk great (recommend scuba diving !!). Atmosphere at night was lively but very... More

Really nice dorm rooms with good airconditioning. Friendly staff and acceptable bathrooms. However, the kitchen was disgusting!!! It smelled horribly, and we only made sandwiches and noodles because we didn't want to cook there. The cleaning was generally not acceptable. Also, there was loud party music everywhere day and night, so it was hard to have a normal conversation over... More

We stayed here as part of our East Coast tour and had doubts before staying here as all the other accommodations were hotels. We had difficulty finding the car parking as it isn't signposted at all so eventually abandoned the car on the foot path outside the hostel to find out where it was. The check in was easily done...

I stayed in this hotel while travelling with my other half and I can say it's a great location , in the middle of everything and the beach is right around the corner.

I didn't enjoy my night here at all. The bed was really uncomfortable, i could hear everything in the room next door but the bathroom was surprisingly nice. This might just have been the wrong accommodation for me. Location was great.

This hostel was great. It was pretty clean with decent sized kitchens. It was a really fun, social hostel with a really nice social area/common room.(WITH PING PONG TABLE!) Rooms were of a good size and fairly comfy beds.

We had a modern room with carpet and a stone tiled bathroom with large glass-doored shower. The hostel is located close to the main street and beach so it is very convenient. They had surfboards and boogie boards which were great at the surfing beach. They also had bicycles which we used to get to Tallow Beach. This was a... More

I stayed in a 6-bed dorm with ensuite bathroom. The bathrooms (both main and ensuite) are not cleaned properly. There is gunk in the sink, the toilets are not clean, and the showers have built-up scum in them. They are only wiped down once daily, but not cleaned. Each person is given a clean sheet and pillowcase, however, the duvet... More
