Stayed in a 16 bed dorm surprisingly spacious! Glad we had a bathroom in our room as communal facilities didn't look good. We had 2 showers and a toilet which was more than enough for our room. Only 2 fans for the room which is a bit of a pain! Lack of convenient plug sockets but no big issue. Beds are pretty comfy and wide for a bunk bed.

Hostel in a great central location people who can't be bothered to walk to main beach can get a bus but it's so easy to walk to! Great activities and good adjoining bar. Cheap drinks and great large $5 meals every night.

Free pizza and BBQ night sounds more wonderful when it is. Make sure you eat an evening meal and treat this as a free snack as BBQ is 2 sausages or 2 chicken wings and free pizza is 2 slices of Pizza Hut pizza. Slight false advertisement.

Only major improvement to the hostel would be more stoves and kitchen equipment as cooking in there is very stressful when full due to lack of supplies!

Overall a great little hostel with a nice feel and the most important thing it is CLEAN.

I heard so many things about the nomad hostels so stayed here for a few days. When we arrived in noosa we had a shuttle ready waiting to pick us up and drop us at the hostel which was fantastic. Most the people in the hostel where a good laugh and very social. After a good start the hostel went down hill from then on.

When we arrived at the desk it took about 30 minutes to check in as the member of staff was being trained up but got left by themselves at the most busiest periods. After checking in we got to our room, it can only be described a shanty town style room. 16 people for a tiny room and the fans didnt work and there was no ac in the rooms either. for $26 a night you would expect better quality rooms and service from the staff.

We decided to book our australia zoo tour with nomads as they had the cheapest offer and you could get a shuttle to the bus station. When booking this we where told we needed to book another nights stay as the day we wanted was fully booked (not a problem). We got moved into a different room and had to pay $31 to stay in an 8 bed room. Our old room mates even told us that no one moved into our old rooms. To book this tour took just under 1hour to sort as the member off staff didnt have a clue what they where doing.

In the hostel bar at night the security staff seemed as if they had a chip on their shoulder as they where unpleasant to both male and female punters in the bar.

Would recommend if you go to noosa find a different hostel as for me, this was one of the worst hostels I have stayed in in my 6 months in australia!

Well where to begin.

I had heard if nomads being a fantastic hostel in airlie beach and after checking out its facilities there it seemed logical to book with the same company in noosa.

For the price you pay 26 dollars a night for a 16 dorm room is expensive in my eyes. However I still chose to stay here.

When we arrived the staff had no idea what they were doing. Took forever to check in and also wasn't easy when we booked for australia zoo. As we had to change room for the day that we went to australia zoo we had to check out in the morning and check back in, in the evening. Again met by incompetent staff.

The kitchen is 6 stoves and a microwave for about 500 backpackers give or take. So be prepared to fight for a place in the kitchen.

I also had my food bag stolen (which had $20 of food in it. I doubt it had been thrown out because it had enough labels to show the time we were staying at nomads.

Check out again was a disaster. They lost our information sheets and was waiting 20 mins to check out. As they took so long trying to find our information I couldn't inform them of the theft that occurred. The only positive is that the beds are perhaps the best I've probably been on so far.

If you want stress and goods to go missing then come to nomads noosa! You'll have an awesome time!

I really enjoyed my stay here. You have quick contact with other travellers in the room and the big place to hang around outside! Good accomodation. Nice that they have a shuttle bus and other free activities. Also there is every night a big meal for just 5 dollars and a bar!

Perfect place for solo travellers. I loved the rope swing and the free tour of the national park. big partys in the bar at night too. I will stay again on my way back up the coast. best meal for dinner is the fish and chips it was only $5. Rachel helped me book tours, she is great

Room Tip: 16 share is great way to meet people

I stayed for two nights, before and after the trip to Fraser Island (definitely a must). Clean rooms, toilet and shower inside, nice location. But most of all, great atmosphere, awesome people, very good fun and party.
