This place has the worst customer service. We actually made up a slogan, Say no to Nomads. It really is that bad. It's like the staff want to fight you. Would highly recommend not staying with them. Kitchen totally sucks, if you need a fork they send you up the road to get it. Blankets, nah we are out of those. Oh yeah,give us a $50 cash deposit too. Go for a walk up the road to the ATM everyone and get the $50. For really, totally sucked.

Central location in the town. Separate reception from Base. Big clean bungalows. Beautiful pool area with palm trees and hammocks. Friendly staff. Best nomads in Australia!

This hostel combines great atmosphere, big and clean rooms, a great location and a helpful staff ready to support you on exploring the city and everything else the area has to offer. I had an amazing time there staying in a 4 bed dorm. Parties every night but nothing too loud that would disturb my sleep, and my room was the nearest to the bar. I've been there more than once in different times of the year and it seems to be always packed with backpackers from all over the world, what makes everything even better for meeting people, you can even manage to meet some people traveling in campervans and get a ride to your next destination, as the hostel has a big campervan parking area. The cons of the hostel are not providing free wi-fi, to use internet you will need to pay $4 a day or $12 a week.. but it's pretty much the same in every hostel I've been in Australia =/ And the rooms doesn't have lockers, which I also noticed in most of the hostel of Australia, but Nomads seem to be changing this in 2016. However, they do have a locker area, away from the rooms, where you can storage some of your stuff if needed.. $5 dollars to have access to it. The truth is that I'm sure you will have heaps of fun at this place and meet an incredibly amount of people! Hope this was helpful! Safe trips, guys!

Really good hostel, fresh rooms and aircondition. Kitchen not that good and you need to pay for the cutleries.

This hostel is only for people who want stay for a few days. Its a bit expensive, no free wifi. The beds are old but you have enough room inide. The kitchen is very small and there is not enough seats for every body, its better when you not go after 6pm for cooking. For dishes you must pay, but you get the money back. The statt was nah, not so friendly. Inside your room is a bath with toilett, its just so clean like the people who live there. I was 4 days in this hostel and never saw a cleaner.

I've had the best times here for the last 4 years! Perfect location, nice pool area, awesome bar and nice staff. There is however a but, only as of yesterday, I always go camping here with the car / tent, but now all of a sudden your car is not allowed at the general campground anymore :( They do however have other sites available but not just on the main central campground which I like and prefer most. Something about a merge with X-base and getting much stricter. So yeah, that was a bit sad, now I have to look for other places :( I'd like my car with clothes, fridge, personal stuff, lights, battery etc nearby. Just like camping anywhere else, but I'm not moving to a concreted block away from this central awesome grassy area I like... Also the dongers with the showers / toilets are really old and barely functional (in like, not working, no mirror, no hooks, they are clean though but just old). So yeah, really nice place but unfortunatly not for me anymore I guess :( Good luck on the merge and tightening up the rules!

Hi Ray, Thanks for leaving us the review. Im so happy that you did enjoy the property and can assure you that we are only putting procedures in to improve the security and safety of the guests. We do have camping areas which you can have your car with you I'm afraid you might have been given the wrong advice from our reception staff whom are still training, so for that i am very sorry. We are also putting a lot of work on the camper amenities so hopefully if you do come and visit again they will be looking brand new. I do hope you can give us another chance...thanks again for your feedback it is always valuable. Cheers Kellie | GM
