The staff is great and great location. But the wi-fi is so slow and this hostel isn't safe.

All in all the stay was amazing for a hostel, right on the beach with beautiful views and a lovely ambience. Breakfast was included as well which was brill. Unfortunately, I did suffer from a terrible reaction to either bed bugs or the sheets (not sure which) but seemed like I had bites all over my body. I was staying with three others, all who were totally fine. so who knows!

Great location on the beach in the centro. The hostel will not let you bring in drinks that are not purchased from their bar, which is not open every night. Some of the guests are much older and are apparently not aware of some of the hostel culture (i.e. getting back late at night). Some of the rooms are dark, cramped, and damp.

Nice hostel, location fanstastic - right on the main street in Buzios. Slight concern about security as the rooms were not locked, but the breakfast was good and staff friendly.

I would highly reccomend Nomad. It comes with free complementary breakfast, the bunk rooms are cleaned daily, it's right on an awesome beach and you can hear the waves fro myour room while you fall asleep. On top of it, the staff were very helpful and friendly. To top it all off, it's right next to an awesome pizza place (quadrada)!

Excellent place. I would like to come back. The staff is great and the location too.

This is the best housing deal you will find in Buzios and the location is excellent, right along the main drag, so your view when you step out of your room will be the ocean. The breakfast is good and the facilities are clean. My only hiccup was that you can't control the air conditioning in your room. You have to ask the front desk to adjust it for you. But besides that, this is an excellent choice for couples, individuals, or big groups traveling to Buzios on a budget.

Can't beat the location. It's directly in front of the beach. The beach doesn't receive any surf, but its very pleasant to observe the horizon and the fishing boats. The sunsets here are beautiful and there is a large area to chill out and enjoy them. The hostel is also right in the middle of the town centre, so amenities, entertainment and food are very close. I had a very enjoyable stay here. Great breakfast, cool staff, decent dorms.

We didn't have a remote to the Air Condition. They only had one in the reception. It got too cold during the night and its a bit of a hassle to get to the reception each time we wanted to change the temperature. Good breakfast, great location. All in all a very good hostel.

Absolutely brilliant location, very welcoming and friendly staff. You feel at home from the first moment you walk in.. My second time at Nomad and never fails to beat expectations!!

I stayed for 2 days and shared the room with 8 people, they only "cleaned up" the bathroom once and didn't put the carpet back. the floor was all wet after people took shower. Also they didn't empty the trash can as it was full of toilet paper. To turn on the air conditioner, you have to ask them at the reception and they keep the remote control. if it gets cold at night, you have to go downstairs. Besides this, it is a good hostel with nice people working there!

Some bathrooms had problems with water filtrations. Few floor under beds were little dirty and had some dead bug under. Breakfast was always the same but the juices were great. WIFI wasn't available at all areas. Great musical taste inviting Guillermo Mercau live set

Great hostel! Breakfast was good, the rooms were kept clean everyday, the staff were super nice and helpful, and the ocean view was just breathtaking. Only thing I would change would be the kitchen, a bit small for the amount of people staying and quite lacking in cooking supplies. Location is also excellent, will definitely recommend!

The hostel was fine. Its located right next to the sand of a beach full of boats and the view is great, but it isnt a popular beach during the day. It has a bar thats open most of the time, with restuarant-like prices. Kitchen is slow and super small for the size of the hostel. The atmosphere may be better, its usually too shy and common areas arent as crowded as expected if you are travelling solo. Wifi is bad: it was usually down and you have no signal in the dorms. Tv didnt work.

WOW! Nomad Buzios is amazing. The location is fantastic, directly in the heart of shops, restaurants and nightlife. We were fortunate enough to lock down a private room that overlooked the water. The view was amazing, the room very large and the bed was extremely comfortable. The room also included air conditioning. I highly recommend staying at this hostel.
