Calling all fun-loving travellers: discover your new base at Nomads Brisbane. Our heritage-listed building may be pretty, but inside we’re all about the party. Head up to our rooftop terrace to sip on a cold beer with views of the city, fire up the barbecue or just relax and watch a film with other travellers. When night rolls around, our famous Down Under Bar and nightclub is the only place to be. Cheap drinks + amazing tunes = the best night of your life (probably). If you're feeling more chilled out, pop next door to our Zi Bar and Restaurant for a cheap and tasty meal, or take it easy in one of our common rooms.


You’ll find us in the heart of Brisbane, directly opposite Brisbane Central Station. Stroll for around 15 minutes to find yourself in the middle of the botanic gardens, or jump in a taxi for 20 minutes to get your adrenaline fix zip-lining at Mount Coot-tha. When it’s time to leave us (sob!), getting to Brisbane Airport is easy: it’s only 20 minutes away, and we offer a shuttle bus.

    Pros: Very friendly & helpful staff, great central location and good showers with a good variety of cold/hot temperature. Cons: Rooms were very hot and stuffy, only 2 fans and if you're on a top bunk there is basically no air flow so it is very difficult to sleep (I slept on the couch in my room). Wifi only worked for my phone, couldn't connect to the internet on my laptop. Overall Opinion: Good for a short stay, not a long one. Overall Review: 8/10

    Everything was exactly as I booked on the internet. The only annoying thing is the bar at the basement was playing music really loud until 3AM. I would say this place is value for money and the convenient location.

    Best location for a hostel in Brisbane hands down!! Super central and close to everything. Would have been cool if the staff did more to help everyone meet one another and get involved in activities, but otherwise was a great time

    Room was way too hot. Only had one plug and it was for the air con so had to ask for an extension lead. However, staff were great and friendly and we liked the activities offered.

    Loved the location, could walk everywhere around the main city. It was also near all the shops, bars and restaurants. The hostel was clean, the bathrooms can be quite far from the rooms, however wasn't a problem and they were always clean. There is a bar under the hostel and couldn't hear the music of a night from the second floor. Wasn't much on socially to meet other travellers, I was only here for a night so that was OK. Would recommend staying here :)

    Not too bad and in good location, but the facilities are quite decrepit, no aircon so you just have to sweat in your room, and fire alarm went off at night for no reason

    I will not be coming back to this place, aside from its location which is great i must say, everything else is below average. Staff can't help you as they don't know the city. Facilities are deplorable, 1 out of 5 toilets on the floor worked fine, the second one didn't flush properly, the third didn't have water and the other 2 where out of order, this is for at least 100 people p/floor. If you're driving, there is no carpark or a deal with any of the ones around, is up to you to find something.

    bedbugs in the common area, and cockroaches, they didnt close off or clean the area until about 7 people complained and a post was made on facebook. No atmosphere never met anyone outside the rooms. Down under bar was blaring music until 5am. Yes they do not close the bar until 5am. I was on the first floor and had zero wifi in my room. No aircon, cockroaches in the rooms and constantly being bitten in bed. Kitchen hot as h***, stove tops didnt work. And half the time microwaves didnt work.
