I feel that having to have deposits to have a pan ect to cook your food with is unecessary, also it is not made aware prior to coming to nomads as some people like us didn't have the cash on us. Also there is away guy who works behind reception which I can only describe as rude. With this I would not stay again


Stayed in a 6 bed before going to the Whitsunday's. Large clean room, bathroom a bit grubby. Not enough plug's- 1 bed had 3 but there was only 2 for the rest in the room! 8 bed much cleaner but smaller and still not enough plug's for charging! Kitchen was much cleaner than expected from the other reviews. Annoying having to hire all crockery from reception and pay to store luggage whilst at the Whitsunday's but other than that it's a decent hostel.


In the 6 bed share you can see below and above the toilet and shower which isnt great


Great hostel, although having to put a deposit on for every single item of kitchen wear, knives, pots etc, seems abit much... But recommend!


I think the hostel could improve its atmosphere a lot if somehow they incentivized the guests to get along at the backyard or pub. They do have a happy hour, but it is not enough, since I have met more guests at the pub next to the hostel then at the hostel's pub itself. Great hostel though,I highly recommend it!


Good rooms and bathroom , rubbish free wifi the cooking facility's were poor could not bring my self to cook with so many flys in the kitchen


I stayed in an 8 bed female dorm and really liked it. Spacious and really clean! Great location. Only slightly annoying thing is if you buy the wifi - it doesn't work over in the back rooms where I was, so was a bit pointless as there is free slower wifi in reception.


The kitchen id disgusting! Who thought it would be a good idea to put a kitchen in the middle of a forest..? There are red ants everywhere so you can't leave your food in the kitchen without it getting swamped by ants.


Very clean, fun and functional hostel!

Free wifi and secure storage would make the hostel even better!


Good rooms and location, I liked also the atmosphere. I didn't like the male bartender (very rude) and the kitchen (it was big but full of flies)

Great location. 10-15 min walk to Whitsundays tour meeting point. Nice lagoon 2 min walk away. Plenty room in our 8 bed dorm. Shower room was good. Nice pool area to chill.


Kitchen was disgusting, bins over flowing


Location was good and rooms seemed new, but check-in process took forever, Wi-Fi wasn't working, computers were all out of order, and the rooms didn't have any shelves, lockers or hooks to place your things, which is difficult in an 8-share. Fine for one night considering the price, but I definitely wouldn't stay any longer than necessary.


Lovely hostel. I stayed in a female deluxe dorm and it was the best dorm I've stayed in. Very clean with cleaners in every day and sturdy bunk beds which made a change! Air con too which was definitely needed! Loved the fact that the sinks, showers and toilet were all separate so saved an hassle with others! The kitchen was okay but had loads of ants and flies. The vibe in the bar wasn't too good either but it did the job. The movie night was an enjoyable bonus. Great location and staff!!


The rooms are clean, there is much needed AC in them


Nice hostel in centre of town. Decent rooms and bathrooms. Good little pool and bar area is pretty good. All staff were helpful, particularly their travel booking guy.


One member of staff was particularly helpful.


Nicest room in Oz so far!
