The hostel is quite new so the facilities are pretty nice. The kitchen is good equiped but mugs have to be hired for 5$ deposit and there's no oven. As Nomads is known as a party hostel I was a bit afraid of this because I didn't want that at all but there was no party - at least not in the room area. I didn't check the common areas.

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay at Nomads Byron Bay. We are quite a large hostel and I understand that some people may appreciate smaller properties. Being a large hostel, we do create a great environment for socialising and meeting other travelers which is many people do enjoy. I am pleased you liked our TV room and BBQ's in the evenings. Enjoy the rest of your travels in Australia.

Really enjoyed this place, was only meant to be here 3 nights and ended up staying a week! Some of the friendliest staff, and there was always a great atmosphere and an easy place to make friends! Really clean and modern bathrooms too

No oven, not enough airflow in the rooms. A little noisy and much partys. Great for meeting people

The place is pretty good: it had clean rooms with stable beds and enough bathrooms etc. Kitchen is nice and i liked that theres free wifi downstairs. This hostel is great for young kids who like to party a lot. Though it wasnt noisy at night, if youre not the cheeky Monkeys kind of person, this might not be the place for you.

Nice stay at Byron nomads. Was the end of the weekend when I stayed however it was still nice. I ended up having a 6 bed dorm to myself!

Byron bay was really pretty and relaxed! Our room was ok, it could do with a proper clean, because when we walked in the bathroom was wet everywhere and wet smelly towels on the floor and sink was disgusting, the room was covered in rubbish as the rooms stupidly DO NOT have any bins. We checked in at 2 so I thought the room should have been cleaned. My friends sheets had blood stains on them which wasn't nice. Need to make more effort on cleaning rooms rather than painting the outside!

It was the second time I stayed in this hostel.. I like the excellent location, close to everything.. and the staff is always helpful and friendly.. they make it very easy if you want to book some extra activities in Byron such as surfing lessons, kayaking or skydiving. The common area is nice, a good place to have fun. The toilets were a bit smelly.. but overall I enjoyed my stay.

Nomads is located right in the heart of Byron, which makes it a perfect place if you want to go out at night or be close to the beach. My room looked nice

Overall this hostel is pretty good...it's definitely a party hostel though! Most of the staff were friendly. I paid extra for an en suite room- worth the money as the shared bathrooms were quite far from my dorm. Not the cleanest of Hostels but I have stayed in worse. Only stay here if you're up for a party

Great people here, but it is so large that you don't really get to connect with other as you would in a smaller hostel.

Excellent stay, super nice people, very clean, a well oiled machine. No better location possible. Great for an older backpacker as well.

Great hostel, topped with amazing location - 5 min walk to the beach and 30 second walk to the main street with all shops/bars/pubs. Staff were very helpful and accommodating. I'd highly recommend staying here if you're travelling, looking to budget and want to see the best of what Byron has to offer.
