Staff are friendly and helpful, rooms are simple and beds are clean, bathrooms are alright, and WiFi worked everywhere, but was sometimes on and off. The only downside to this place is the terribly tiny kitchen and how loud and rowdy it gets at night while you're trying to sleep

Rooms are cramped and stuffy, no aircon. Showers REEKED of cleaning product and it seemed as though the ventilation for the ensuite showers stopped working years ago. Staff Were ok, don't expect too much? Dont bother coming here unless you're planning to get maggot drunk.. We had a bloke walk into our room 3 or 4 in the morning to... More

Central Melbourne, about a 20 minute walk to Federation Square and the Harbour and we had a blast! The bar here is amazing, decent drinks for a decent price. We stayed in a ten bed dorm and the beds were super comfy, everyone really really helpful and the shared bathrooms were continuously cleaned and always in good condition. The travel... More

Brilliant! Situated in a pretty good location, close to both clubs, pubs and bars as well as the Queen Victorian Markets. Within walking distance (15-20 mins) to the Crown Casino too! Staff are friendly and hilarious - have a mixture of safety and fun as their number one priority! The themed bar nights are fantastic with relatively cheap prices and... More

A decent hostel! Very good bar and nightlife and very basic dorms/accommodation. Good travel shop, mad travel. Booked some tours with them which worked out cheaper that other tour companies. The location is ok, near to Victoria market but a bit further out than most

When me and my friend got to nomads we thought the staff were nice, location was ideal but the cleanliness was not the best! The kitchen is a pain to cook in and food gets stolen all the time. We stayed for a week and enjoyed it, there is a nice enough cinema room and and always stuff to do... More

We stayed 2 nights and we have stayed in many hotels in the past This place for me ranked as the worst hotel/motel we have stayed. Steer away if you can. The service is just terrible. The elevator does not work with the card they give you and neither does the entrance to the motel room. We will not stay... More

Nomads seem to have a good reputation which made me stay at Nomads Melbourne. I wish I had chosen differently. The staff is just too busy enjoining themselves, flirting with each other, fighting with one another, even making out behind reception while I was waiting (maybe kiss and make up...?), instead of helping guests. Of course I want staff to... More

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood Profile
Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
