4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The Nomads yet again did not disappoint. After staying with them throughout my trip to New Zealand two years ago I decided to continue with what I know In Australia. Again very reasonably priced at around $28 a night, which isn't bad for a large tourist spot like Byron Bay. As always they have a really good travel desk with... More

Great rooms and a big up to staffmember James who really helped us out and were super-friendly and made our stay perfect!! The air condition was great and there are a lot of activities to do for Young adults, great tv-room and other places to chillax!

First impressions of Nomads was good but that's about it. From the wifi that is supposedly free in reception. Free because it never works. And when you do pay for it - it still doesn't work. The kitchen and bathroom facilities at good but rarely clean. Staff are unhelpful and rude when you go with a complaint. My food was... More

This is quite a large hostel, and the rooms are big too. We spent 3 nights in a 10 bed mixed dorm and there was plenty of room. The air con was excellent so the room was never hot and stuffy. There's free wifi in the reception area. The kitchen is quite large and there's plenty of space to store... More

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...

The hotel was great save not to expensive. The rooms are nice and big loads of space to dump your bags the beds are comfy and the... More

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.
