Checked into Nomads Byron bay and loved the cleanliness of the hostel and rooms. Staff were amazing and made us feel welcome. They told us what to do and where to go and even gave us some local knowledge and got to experience some real special places around Byron bay. Will definitely be back again. Great location. The northern hotel... More

Stayed here for four nights. We're greeted by a lovely clean modern reception area. However, once in the lift and on the first floor our good impression slowly faded. The hallways stunk of sweat and our room stank of a mixture of damp and sour milk. The carpets had so many stains I didn't want to let my bare feet... More

Stayed here for 2 nights in January 2016. The rooms are modern but could do with a good clean, particularly the bathroom & balcony areas. Nice kitchen & tv area, great location & very central. Had a bit of a situation where my roommates were hardcore druggies but the staff were more than helpful & understanding in changing me to... More

Only down side was the spas were broken my whole stay. This place is mainly backpackers yet they dont accommodate the fact that buses arrive early morning.... More

Fantastic location with the friendliest staff, large comfortable foyer, huge clean kitchen. I was there in peak season and guests were considerate and cooperative. Best location. Bunk beds are the steel wiggly kind but I had a decent bed-fellow who didn't move every half a second and make sleep impossible. I was only able to stay one night as they... More

Friendly staff and good location. The room was alright although it didn't have a bin and bed wasn't particularly comfortable. Common area was nice especially the hammocks outside. The worst part was the toilets. They were mixed male and female and were dirty and smelly the entire time I was there.

We spent a weekend in BB and so stayed one night at Nomads. Ambiance was very good (on a Sunday night) in the huge "playing" area with tables outside. You're allowed to drink alcohol which I found forbidden in most of the backpackers I stayed in... Room & bed sheets were very clean, same for bathroom & toilets. That's what... More

Enjoyed my visit here to Byron bay. Hostel was very clean and had fitted air conditioning which was also very nice. Wifi only works downstairs however this wasn't a problem for me. I'm a fantastic location near the beach and in the middle of the town centre.

I stayed here for 3 nights. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Room was clean and bed was comfortable. Lots of sockets and a balcony. Kitchen was big and well stocked but the hobs were so bad it took me 30mins to fry a veggie burger. These really need to be fixed! You can drink in the hostel until 10... More

Nice modern hostel. Good location, 5 mins to the beach, right on the Main Street for bars restaurants and shops and there's an Aldi underneath for food shopping. The kitchen facilities are good. I stayed in an 8 bed dorm with en suite and balcony. They also have communal toilets and showers. They do some activities within the hostel like... More
