    Fine if you don't mind some scruffiness, tattyness, and grunginess especially in some showers, where there was no shelf or receptacle to hold soap etc. One shower room had flooded floor. No recycling was evident. Lower bunks didn't allow even a short person to sit up. Would be nice if the dried mold above some windows was painted over. Rather hard to find the way around, many convoluted corridors and stairways as 3 terraced houses had been knocked together to form the hostel.

    Basic and unclean. There were no lockers etc in the dorms to lock up valuables when not in the room, and there was only one plug socket in the 6 bed room. Upon stripping our beds, we discovered the mattress was covered in stains and so was the duvet. Toilet didn’t flush. Wasn’t awful - but was advertised as being much better than it was. Would have paid £10 for a night, not the £20 that I did.

    This hostel is decently priced in the event you book a private room like I did (£20 a night). I think that the cleaning routine needs to be more frequent as one of the toilets clearly hadn't been cleaned in a while and on both occasions that I used the shower the same mound of hair I came across the first time was there. The general vibe of the hostel wasn't exactly all that friendly and welcoming. Would book again as a means of getting a decently priced private room. Good but needs improvement.

    I don't recommend to stay at the Nomad. The price was terribly expensive for a night sharing a room and a couple of bathrooms and a shower per floor (many bedrooms in a same floor). Then, facilities were not specially clean. Not dirty, but not clean. And when I asked for a locker where I could place my laptop safely, I was told that I had to buy my own lock to keep my things safe in a locker. I was quite upset...
