At the start of our travels me and my partner usually stay in private rooms but as money was getting tight we stayed in a dorm for the first time in Airlie Beach, Nomads. This set the bar for future dorms very high, we had an 8 bed dorm with an ensuit & was 5* compared to ones we've stayed... More

Generally enjoyed our stay here. The rooms feel quite luxurious for a hostel! We stayed in a room of 8 and we had a bathroom in the room. Really clean and spacious. However, checking-in was not easy! We went to the wrong reception at first (make sure you go to the Nomads one NOT the Base one!) Once we found... More

Most of the buildings and rooms are very run down and need some TLC. Noisy due to nightclubs being on either side of hostel. Good location as it is on the main strip. Pool is old and not appealing. Probably won't be coming back.

Checking in was easy and being able to park my rental car at the back of the grounds was good. A young kiwi lad that was just new on the day was very friendly and looks like he will be a quality employee. I was also able to book in a day tour for Whitehaven Beach with a very bubbly... More

They say they have free wifi, but it's only in the reception In spite of all these things, it´s a good place prepared for all different... More

Nomads is such a great place to park your van. It's in a great location near all of the bars and they have a great bar with live music/DJ on site too. We got a powered site for 10 dollars as we booked a Whitsundays tour through the Base reception - definitely worth doing!

I stayed here recently and found one particular member of reception staff to be very rude and unsumpathetic. Friends and I were enquiring as to some chance of early check in as we were soaking wet and not only could it not be accommodated which was disappointing but ok it was the attitude of the receptionist that was appauling. She... More

Excellent hostel in a great location. It is a really big site which has lots of different buildings with differing numbers of rooms. We were in a 4 bed dorm in a building that had 4 dorms. Room came complete with shower, toilet, kitchen area and 4 good quality bunkbeds. Very spacious. Free wifi was ok standard and staff were... More

The grounds the hostel is on are dream like. The rooms were big enough and there were two showers and a toilet, each on their individual stalls. Very clean. That said, the rooms have no windows you can open and they fot VERY stuffy and hot. I don't know who came up with the brilliant idea of NOT putting a... More

Stayed here before and after our Whitsunday's trip. The first dorm we stayed in was great, located right at the front, close to the reception and kitchen with clean toilet and two showers within the dorm. When we checked in again we were in the older dorms which were at the back of the hostel and a walk away from... More
