    WOW. Honestly one of the most accommodating hostels I have ever stayed in. The staff went above beyond to help plan the rest of our trip, they were so so friendly and helped us through a pretty rocky patch in our travels. The rooms were nice and spacious and the whole hostel had such a fab vibe. 10/10 would recommend to a friend and will be returning super soon!

    The best nomads I’ve stayed in. Only downside is there is no pool and the jacuzzi wasn’t working. Apart from that, it is super social and the staff are so nice. Everyone is encouraged to get involved during night activities on the court yard

    Stayed at Nomads for 5 nights and had a great room! Stayed in a 6 bed dorm and it had an en-suite and balcony. You have to get down early for the free breakfast as they run out of bowls and food pretty quick. Not having a pool at the hostel wasn’t a problem as the beach is so nice and only a 5 minute walk! There’s always stuff on in the evening so easy to meet people and if you don’t want to go out, everyone is kicked out at 10pm so you can get a good nights sleep.

    Very Good

    We had a few issues with our check in which wasn’t our fault. There were two bookings under Sarah and they didn’t double check who was who( even though they had my licence). From this mistake we got sent to the wrong room which was a long walk away. We then had to come back down and get checked in again and went to our new room but they wrote the wrong pin down. So we had to go back downstairs to the reception for the 3rd time. The staff didn’t really apologise or seem to care.

    If you're looking for a party hostel, this is the one! Not great if you'd like to get your head down for a sleep, or a nice chill out area. If you aren't drinking and being sociable then there isn't really a place to chill. The age range was also quite young....

    Pros: beds were super comfy and lots of space in the rooms for bags etc. nice little private balcony and en-suite. lots of activities on offer. Cons: can be noisy, activities on offer are great but rarely executed well, atmosphere was poor and wouldn’t say it’s a very sociable hostel. rooms were clean but en-suite bathroom had no soap provided!
