The location of the hostel was perfect, aldi was just behind it, clubs up the road and beach 2 minute walk. The people that worked there were really friendly. The kitchen was clean, but difficult to use the stoves as they took so long to heat up and was small for the amount of people staying. It was also a... More

Epic hostel - massive outdoor chill out area with a couple of spa pools. Room was spacious, clean and had a balcony. Hostel activities everyday and night. Staff were awesome and really looked after us! Thank you!

I just checked in and my room wreeks of weed not impressed. The lounge area is very dirty with ripped chairs. I would definitely avoid this hostel as their are much better ones in a 50m radius. No idea how they won an award clearly they have gone down hill

The value of this place is awesome as you would expect backpackers to be a lower standard than this venue. The room we had was very new, with LCD screen, small view, own toilet/shower and most importantly comfy bed! The staff downstairs are great and knowledgeable of the area and there is plenty to do. Location is great, right in... More

Didn't spend much time in the hostel itself (a large group of friends stayed at a different hostel), but was a decent stay. Location was perfect - 5-10 minute walk to the beach, right off the main strip of bars and restaurants. However, it is down a *slightly* sketchy looking alley. I never ran into any problems, but just a... More

Stayed in a spacious 6 bed, right in the middle of town - Alex and his legendary team did everything with a smile and made the place something really special - Will definitely be back, hopefully soon. Thanks ya legends.

I had such a good time at Nomads Byron Bay. The hostel is very well organized. Directly when you go in its a friendly atmosphere with music playing in the lobby. My room was an 8 bed dorm only a step away from the bathrooms. Very handy. The terrace up top is inviting and allows people to drink together. There's... More

This is a hostel and a travel agency in one place. Wanted to walk into their Office to Research some travel Options. While Walking in a guest emptied his ash tray from a balkony onto my Family and Baby stroller. Probaby by accident, though management's comment was: if you think this is illegal you can contact authorities. Between their usual... More

Good location. Helpful staff. Did find a HUGE cockroach in the room but am sure thats like lots of hostels in Australia other than that no problems! Free wifi in the lobby area. Would return to this accommodation.

We came out of season to Byron Bay so it was very quiet and a younger crowd at the hostel but still had a great time. Great place to met people, there are drinking games and activities organised by the hostel every night. The dorms, bathrooms and kitchen were all really clean, definitely the cleanest hostel I have stayed in.... More
