Staff very friendly. Communal spaces and jacuzzis could do with a better clean 😊
Kitchen was disgusting on all the days we were there- sinks were flooded, washing pilled high and nothing to actually clean plates etc with. bins pilled high and kitchen waste all over the floor. Whilst staff were in the kitchen this didn't seem to bother them at all. Carpet in dorms were filthy and smelt. Met some good people here and courtyard was a good social area but overall really disappointing stay.
Well first of all it would be nice if asked to make a review they'd spell your name right! But anyhow, the hostel was I fact really nice we even extended it buy another night. And was upgraded to a lovely small dorm with ensuite. They had events/nights out nearly every nights- which was good for meeting people. Only downside were the man on reception who was rude, slow, and very unwelcoming. Was a complete a** tbh
Fully appreciate this is a budget backpackers hostel but at $49 a night better facilities and a higher standard of cleanliness would be expected. Rooms filthy and carpets so dirty they are sticky. Kitchen fridges were really smelly and clearly hadn't been cleaned out for some time - basic utensils unavailable - had to go to reception to pay a deposit just to get a mug. Co-ed toilets fine but again need to be cleaned more frequently.
Great hostel well located wth good equipment but to avoid if you are not party oriented
Great central hostel to stay in. The rooms were nice but only had four safety lockers in an eight bed room... you have to buy wifi after you've had your 30 minutes free. Otherwise nice hostel. Had our own balcony and it was only a short walk to the nearest beach.
My stay was dismal! I did my research well or so I thought & chose Nomads due to location & air conditioned rooms. From the first day I had to contend with a broken aircon and sweltering heat which totally destroyed my entire week long holiday. I was uncomfortable and barely slept in the stuffy sweltering room. It was not repaired during my stay, though when I made the 2nd complaint they received mid week about it they had a repair man there looking into it. I will never stay there again!
Overall a pretty standard nomads hostel the onlyaom downside being having to pay over the odds ($41 for one night!) Simply because Byron was so busy. If they charge that price I expect the room to be a little cleaner than it was although the bathrooms and kitchen were very clean
