    Very pretty hostel, feels like a hotel resort. Got a free upgrade in a 4 bed dorm and the room was amazing with a great bathroom. The kitchen is awful, the stoves hardly work and it’s very poorly equipped. The bar was alright, loved the live music event on Sunday though just be prepared for some noise.

    Rude and patronising staff who couldn't handle really normal questions at check in, otherwise a good stop over hostel before your boat trips :)

    The beds are fine and there is enough outlets for everyone to have one which is nice. The idea of the room being like a little cabin is cute and cozy however the en-suite bathrooms are clearly never cleaned as I stayed for 6 days and when I checked in the bathroom floor was sticky from someone throwing up the previous night and was still the same by the time I checked out. The kitchen is one of the worst I’ve seen in Australia, it’s covered in flies and stocked very poorly. Great location though

    My stay here was good. The people were lovely, rooms spacious and clean and the outdoor space and pool is beautiful. However the kitchen facilities are awful. It’s very dirty and there’s almost never any cutlery to use. I’m quite tolerable to hostel kitchens but I would rather eat out than cook here again. Also one day, a staff member threw out everyone’s food bags for no reason and placed the food in boxes. (They were all labelled). And when confronted was very rude. No help from reception.

    Difficult to tell when booking online but Nomads and Base are located on the same plot in Airlie Beach. 2 bars on site - one of which plays loud music until 2am if you are looking for that sort of thing. Staff were pleasant and can’t fault location. However, not great if you are looking a good night’s sleep. Room could have been cleaner and the kitchen wasn’t well equipped with basic cutlery - not enough forks, sharp knives and pots.

    RUDE STAFF. Blonde lady on reception seemed to go out of her way to not help. Everything was too much hard work. Kitchen facilities poor, dirty and over crowded. Visited in Nov 2017 and June 2019 and NOTHINGS CHANGED. Given the price of the hostel you’d think they would improve facilities.
