Travelled here alone. Atmosphere was nice at points but I couldn't have stayed there much more than a few nights. Staff were awesome and very helpful. Obviously it's a stop gap for the Whitsundays. Maybe not the greatest place if you're travelling solo (I met more people on the More

Staff were very helpful and friendly, making us feel welcome and included in hostel life. The provision of a shuttle bus to the marina and greyhound bus stop was a big plus also. Unfortunately the hostel, whilst ok, is dated and showing signs of wear, particularly in the bedrooms and in More

Nomads is great, a real resort feel with clean kitchens and lots of outside space. Rooms were so clean, and having a bathroom and two showers attached to the room made such a difference. Despite the reputation of a party hostel, our room was quiet at night and the noise didn't travel from More

Really nice cabins: facilities were great and very clean. Stayed before and after a boat trip and was able to leave my luggage with them. Close to Coles but quite a walk from Abell Point Marina. More

Awesome place, super friendly staff, good location, also got to see kookaburras and parrots that had adopted the place. Got a cabin for ourselves, with kitchen and shower, clean and cosy, couldn't have asked for more. Would stay again! :) More

Basic but clean. The kitchen facilities were good, lots of utensils to use. They charge for towels which are usually provided free at other hostels. We found the staff to be quite rude and unhelpful. Three staff at reception were middle aged women who would not look up and acknowledge us More

Could do with some appliance updates in the kitchen. I also feel that the kitchen needs to be deep cleaned in general. Otherwise excellent stay in every way. More

It was completely fine, only hostel so far to have a deposit for using cutlery. But there was always cutlery available in the kitchen anyway so... In general its not worth spending more than a night in Airlie anyway. More

At our arrival, the staff hasn't been nice. The room was very dirty and we had to change room because it wasn't clean and the shower wasn't working. It is too big and they don't care about people, you will pay the same orice and you will have a better service in other hostel! More

Location: perfect in one way (central), the worst in another - too much noise from the bar downstairs, couldn't sleep till midnight. Room was located right above the bar. More
