    Really enjoyed our stay in Nomads Airlie Beach. The dorm was great and the bathroom was clean. We didn’t spend any time at the pool area, but it looked really nice! Space to park a camper van fairly securely also.

    Nice, spacious rooms and Tony on reception will go above and beyond for you, he made our stay! However rooms could have been more thoroughly cleaned as rubbish and old clothes were left for a while.

    Too big to make friends if you don’t already know people staying there. Cheap drinks at the bar though if you’re into that.

    Not such a bad place. Just had a very nasty kitchen, and the key code often didn’t work so you had to go to reception to fix it. There were no lockers which was annoying as well. One girl was in her room just a little late and had to pay a fee so watch out they’re serious about that. Perks was it was close to town everything is walkable, and there’s a pool to chill by. Go on a bush walk with the Hostel if you stay here and check out the lagoon across the street as well.

    Spent three nights here. The dorms are ok. Comfy beds and good showering facilities! The kitchen however is disgusting, it’s very unclean and most of the oven hobs don’t work. When it’s busy it’s impossible to cook!

    I was absolutely appalled by the way that ALL of the reception staff spoke to me. I had a problem with the washing machine, and both staff on duty said, quote ‘it isn’t out problem’ and refused to help me, while truly looking down at me. It was then that the maintenance man helped me out, he was fantastic. The rooms are fine but the staff are so unbelievably rude and unprofessional that I cannot believe I paid what I did to stay here. Will not be back!

    Miserable and sarcastic slightly older guy on reception got our stay off to a below average start. The room was actually quite clean as were the facilities in the room, although the cleaners had missed some sh**stained underwear on the back of the shower door. The kitchen was probably the worst kitchen I’ve seen so far up the east coast. The facilities were either dirty or practically broken with some pans not even having handles, and the cooking area was generally horrible. Would not stay again

    I don’t even know where to start. Staff were rude. I wouldn’t have noticed my room had been cleaned if I hadn’t been told. Couldn’t find the kitchen. $5 for laundry! Another $5 for dryer. The actual location and resort like feel to the place is lovely and everyone staying were pleasant. It’s okay for what it is and there is one staff member that was so happy and helpful when I checked back in after my Whitsundays trip but I wouldn’t recommend people to stay here

    Bathroom door and facilities were covered in mould. Checkin staff couldn’t be bothered to help with anything other than pointing at a tablet with a very rude attitude. Found bugs in the bed. Will not stay here again.
