Sadly I was here for only two nights. But that was enough to fall in love with Byron Bay. Part of the reason why I love Byron so much in this hostel. It was a clean hostel, with a slow, but friendly staff (makes up for the slowness). My room was clean and had everything I needed (tv, fridge, kettle,...)....

We stayed 4 nights and we absolutely loved it ! The staff was very friendly, rooms were clean, AC, kitchen and bathroom clean. Great location close to the beach and activities organised every night. We did not want to leave.

Very small kitchen, all the rooms seem very messy. Hostel don't seem to care about it. Lovely air conditioned room! Very close to the beach and anything you need during the day! Would recommend to everyone but I suggest eating out at night

Having previously had not so great experiences with Nomads this place completely changed our opinion. Rooms are clean, spacious and bathrooms are very modern! Would recommend this hostel to anyone staying in Byron! Great location too!

I was also pleasantly surprised to find the unisex bathrooms kept...

Nomads Byron Bay was my second backpacker stay in Australia, this time I decided to spend two nights in the lovely little Byron Bay. Great location, which is a perk. Price was fair. There was nothing wrong with the backpackers at all, the staff was really friendly, the dorm rooms and facilities were relatively clean. If you're looking for a...

Had a 4 nights stay in Nomads Byron Bay. The hostel is in a perfect location right in the middle of lovely Byron Bay. ALDI and two bottle shops not even a minute walk away. It's a 5 minutes walk to the beach. The hostel has a big common area which allows you to sit together with others to have...
