    It was ok. I didn’t feel like it was very social but that might have been because of the people. I didn’t think it was that clean but it wasn’t that bad either. I wouldn’t stay more than a night.

    Bathroom was gross. Not very well cleaned - sink got a quick wipe. Drain in bath clearly never cleaned as the hair stuck in it was making the place smell.

    One of the better nomads I’ve stayed in. Dorm rooms are clean and beds relatively comfy.

    The first night was awkward as cleaners had cleaned beds. A couple of us moved into the clean beds, which happened to actually have been ones that individuals did not move out of. Otherwise it was a convenient spot to stay before and after sailing the whitsundays

    staff were lovely & great nights out at the bar but very noisy every night until 3am with music vibrating the rooms so if you want to sleep maybe go elsewhere. cleanliness not great in rooms & no soap in bathrooms again (seems to be a recurring thing with nomads). kitchen doesn’t have many facilities but was clean. great central location.

    Bed bugs. Been to a fair bit of hostels from Asia to South America and never ever had an issue with bed bugs. Nomads was my first encounter with these mother f***. Not quite sure how they can still operate off their reputation with the risk of all their guests getting bed bugs.

    Worst hostel service ever. We arrived at 20.00 and were super hungry so reception pointed us to the nearest supermarket, when we came back with our groceries the kitchen was already closed (at 20.30!) so we couldn't prepare anything. The music is super loud and they even play music at 5 in the morning!! When we checked out, we agreed that we could leave 2 of our bags in the room with our friend. When we came back 3 hours later, reception took stuff out of the bag and we had to pay 15£ to get it.
