    I had the best time at Nomads. I chose a female dorm room, the girls were so lovely and welcoming. The room and en-suite were clean. The hostel is so close to town which is great. All the staff were super helpful and kind! And the bar was great in the evenings!!

    Stayed here for 4 nights - super friendly staff, clean rooms and great location. Only downside was that the hostel was pretty quiet, making it harder to socialise - this was most likely due to it being mid week and COVID reasons. Would recommend staying here for sure!!!

    Booked a private room. Great price and huge room with a kitchenette and en-suite. Location can’t get any better. Activities and facility Maintenance appear to have been abandoned. But I’d say covid struggles are to blame.

    We loved our stay in the 8 bed dorms, although they were a bit dirty especially the shower. (Not the dirtiest we’ve seen in Australia though). So nice to lay around the pool, grab a cheap meal at the bar on site and close enough to walk anywhere you need in Airlie. Will definitely stay here again next time we’re in Airlie!

    Should be made clear that nomads and base are now joined together. The swimming pools are filthy. The rooms are spacious with comfortable beds but there isn't many plugs and there is no hand soap in the bathroom. The kitchen is decent sized and we had no issues cooking in it. The staff are really friendly and helpful, but overall if we were to come to Airlie again, we'd probably stay somewhere else.

    Location is perfect. Outdoors areas are really enjoyable, rooms are ok but the kitchen really needs adjustments. They don’t have many utensils or cutlery (they have LITERALLY one mug), just one kettle working, pots and pans in very bad condition. If you’re travelling with your camp kit this place would be ok for you. If you are not, don’t expect to have an actual kitchen to cook.

    Incredibly unwelcoming staff makes this an entirely unpleasant place to stay.

    Rating of 8 is misleading. The photos look about 10 years old. The room we had, had some long term issues that management would be aware of. A bathroom door that didn’t work because the hinge was bent and rusty A constant dripping shower head and basin tap. Rust all in the shower. No sheer privacy blinds just regular blinds that had to be kept shut because all the backpackers are parked/camped right across from the rooms. No table and chair inside to eat breakfast.
