Stayed here only 1 night but wouldn't stay here again. Check in took forever about a 45min wait with unfriendly, rude staff. There was something wrong with our booking and they made us feel like it was our fault but an agent booked everything for us. Rooms were disgusting - Mouldly with ants crawling everywhere. Beds were comfortable but can't... More

I only stayed here for 1 night before my 2 day Whitsundays sailing trip.. But it was great for the time I was there. The staff were helpful & accommodating as I had to check-in late and had to check-out early. They were also nice :) I stayed in an 8-bed female dorm ensuite which was spacious, however, I think...

I think the best hostel I've been in my roadtrip along the east coast. The girls at the reception weren't really kind but everything else was beautiful. The rooms were clean and big, the area was huge, the kitchen new. We just had the bad luck to share the room with some English guys who were partying and drinking goon... More

Do not recommend this hostel! We got a private room and we almost froze on the first night because they didnt have more blankets. Seriously? not enough blankets? thats not acceptable. Also, they have no sense of urgency, Im on vacation, I cant spend the whole day at the reception waiting for someone to talk to me. The receptionists in... More

This hostel is perfect for solo and group travelers. Apparently its the party hostel in Airlie beach and I most certainly got the feel of it. The camp style openness was unique for me in comparison to other hostels/back packers lodges I have stayed in. Definitely worth the value per night. Perfect for all day travel if you're gonna be...

The group was super young when I was there. Wifi only in the reception. Not a ton of outlets in the rooms. Only get the basics. Have bar and games for people. Right on the mainstrip in town. Pretty average hostel.

Nomads has an ideal location and it is a really sociable, fun, party environment which is great. This said, it is surrounded by hostels in equally good locations so if I ever return to Airlie, I wouldn't rush back purely for this. Firstly, Nomads advertises that they offer free airport transfers on Tripadvisor, hostelworld and their website. We also received... More

I loved this hostel! Therooms were clean, we had two showers ensuite aswell as a toilet, and the rooms were like bungalows! So a nice holiday atmosphere! The only thing I didn't like was that you didn't get cutlery and plates right away, you had to ask at reception and pay a deposit...

This hostel was ok and offered what was expected of a hostel. However, the cleanliness was not great. There was public bathroom near the reception that should not be allowed to be used due to health and safety as well as hygiene regulations. Other than this - the security of the luggage storage was incredibly poor as it was open... More

Super awesome hostel and bar. Super friendly. I booked a trip through Chelsea on the Mad Travel desk who did me awesome! Since then she's super easy to contact and can book things cheap! Right now I've treated myself for the night in a private room in Queenstown Nomads and feeling good about life. :) thanks for sorting me out... More
