    Great hostel to stay at with a really good location. Beds are a bit uncomfortable, but the staff is great and very helpful. Had to leave before breakfast hours to catch a train and they provided us with breakfast anyway. Atmosphere was ok but kind of dead. Could be just because of the time of stay. Definitely recommend.

    Located a short walk from city centre on a nice street (however works are currently taking place just outside so it was a bit noisy at times). Good clean rooms and bathrooms. Free breakfast and good communal areas with TV, books, dvds etc.

    Great location, quite a few older men there but they’re all quite lovely! The showers on the lower and middle level were awful (I could only find one shower per floor as well) with the light turning off half way through my shower and the pressure in the lower shower terrible. The upper level shower was great however, spacious and great water pressure. Staff were friendly. Great value for what you pay for.

    Doors don’t shut properly, shower was a little dirty and lights / temperature nozzle didn’t really work properly. Good atmosphere and nice people & staff.

    It’s alright for a short stay. Bit out of town, staff weren’t the friendliest. Not much atmosphere. Some weird older people hanging around. Showers were terribly. Bathrooms not the best.

    Wi-Fi was incredibly weak-virtually non-existent. There were only two sets of sockets in my six bed room, and these could only be accessed if you happened to have a bottom bunk. Beds were very creaky and wobbly, with huge gaps either side, not flush to the wall. There wasn't enough 'free breakfast' to go around and the coffee pot looked like it hadn't been cleaned in months. Toilets were very messy and some were dirty. Staff were friendly enough but I've stayed in far better hostels

    Wifi didn't work. No plug point for me to charge up my phone battery unless I sat in the communal area all night. The plug point provided actually didn't work. Worst part is I remember last time I went to Nomad it was exactly the same. So, exactly like last time, I arrive to a staff member in reception with no charm whatsoever. The breakfast did not include any juices which they used to have. Just coffee, cereals and bread. No hot water in the morning. Cold shower. Not even surprised.

    This is by far the worst hostel I have ever stayed at. The staff at the desk was alright, but that was the only good thing we experienced. The bathrooms looked like they hadn't been cleaned in weeks, there was black mold everywhere, rooms were dirty. Noise from people on the patio kept us awake until 3am. The morning we left the bathrooms were covered in vomit, blood, and trashed and nothing had been done. No lockers in rooms. Breakfast was cereal and toast. Never again. Would not recommend.
