Everything is disgusting. Dirty rooms and kitchen..yes, with food all over the floor which no one cleans. Also dirty dishes, most of the guests don't wash them, and not enough forks and spoons for everyone. Very little space inside, where the bar and noisy music is, so if you want to eat quietly you'll have to do it outside in the cold. Also terrible bathrooms, with a horrible smell and cold water! Staff is quite helpfull, but I think no one is in charge of cleaning in that place.

3/4 of the ground floor is taken up by the bar so kitchen is absolutely tiny & most of the equipment is dirty. There's very little room to eat too, again because of the room the bar takes up. The 'free' WiFi is slow and only accessible for 12hrs during the day when most people are out; and they annoyingly change the password daily. Most of the cleaners are also guests so the quality is poor - especially in bathrooms, which are very basic. No surfaces, so everything has to go on the dirty floor.

The bathroom had blood on it and was really dirty. The sheets smelt and the comforter had obviously never been washed. The bar and prices are decent. Location is good.

Bullet points of all the things that were wrong. -Extremely poor staff (like talking to a brick wall) -Suspected theft from housekeepers. -Moved rooms 3 times for no reason, do not understand why had to move us. - Messing us around as wanted to stay long term but because of poor staff and were not very helpful decided to take our finances elsewhere. -Really loud outside due to roadworks in the middle of the night. -Very small kitchen and not a lot of places to eat food. Absolute Joke!!

Free pancakes are actually every day from 8-10 am, but don't expect them to be ready or even set up at 8. Free wifi is supposed to be from 8am-8pm, but the person who has the code wasn't there by 8 and isn't there on weekends so you'll have to ask someone else. The room I was in was disgusting - there were dirty dishes with old food on them and open packages of snacks, in addition to everyone's stuff strewn everywhere. Carpet looked like it was never cleaned. The lockers are tiny.

Centrally located, stayed in a 4 bed and then 8 bed unisex. Both very clean and free breakfast. Free wifi in the main foyer. Staff are really helpful too. Would definitely recommend/ stay again

Nomads provides many service like trips booking, bar, job search, etc. But if you looking for a place to stay, definitly not nomads. Extremely noisy lounge, free wifi only in limited hours, small kitchen and the fridge will be locked BEFORE the closing hour the hostel state and the worst thing is people steal your drinks in the fridge.

Great place to stay, loved facilities apart from kitchen which was tiny! Didn't cook this time but the last time I was here it was a struggle to just cook pasta! Price was good and nightly entertainment was good.

Nomads was generally great. The staff was plenty nice and helpful. The location was fine - it just took me a bit of venturing out to realize that there were plenty of neat things to do nearby. But, the hostel had pretty great access to the central business district and the tram/transport system, which is vital in MEL. The wifi was only free part of the day, so I ended up needing to pay twice for wifi, which isn't so fun in a hostel. Otherwise, great stay. The bar area was nice and social too.
