Pros: great location Cons: the carpet is disgusting everywhere, dirty and moulded


Great party hostel! Bathrooms/ toilet are clean. In the middle of town, close to everything. Would stay here again.


Overall had a great stay here, my friend and I had a private twin room. Pros - excellent location, very secure, staff were really friendly and we loved the courtyard/pool area to hang out. Cons - very loud at night (more so than other hostels I've experienced) with people coming home late at all hours past midnight, our bathroom was not very clean when we arrived (hairs around toilet and floor a bit mucky). Doona's could do with a clean, but all in all had a great stay and would return.

Thanks for your feedback you absolute legend, We are stoked you would come back and stay with us again :) We do our best to ensure its quiet after 10:00pm by not allowing any drinking or visitors in the hostel and by closing all communal areas by this time. We also have security on from 10pm -7am every night to keep the noise at a minimum. Thanks again for your feedback and see you next time your in beautiful Byron Bay!


Sooooo much fun! Best hostel on our east coast trip.

Had to say in 3 different rooms over our stay as the air conditioning was broken and the rooms were roasting at night

Hi there, Thanks so much for your feedback and for staying with us at Nomads Byron Bay. We apologise immensely for making you move multiple times during your stay. Know one likes roasting up at night. is there anything worst? We are so sorry you had to deal with this and hope that this doesn't deter you from staying with us again. We currently have all of our rooms with working air con units as expected and will ensure that any future guests wont have to go through the same experience as you ..


Staff very friendly. Communal spaces and jacuzzis could do with a better clean 😊

Thanks for your feedback you absolute legend, We will definitely have a look into the cleanliness issues you brought up as we have cleaners on 24 hours a day 7 days a week and the communal spaces should be immaculate always! See you next time your in beautiful Byron Bay! Much love from your mates at Nomads Byron Bay


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.

It was gut wrenching to here about your stay with us, We have kitchen cleaners on 3 times a day and this communal space should never of been left in this state. In regards to the carpet issues in your room we are currently in the process of replacing the carpet in every room are are nearly finished :)We apologise for the inconvenience caused during your stay with us and we hope this doesn't to deter you from staying with us again and hope to see you next time your in beautiful Byron Bay :)
