    Stayed here during lockdown long term because it was cheap - really comfy beds with curtains and Charing ports. Regular cleaning in the morning and night. Movie room is a nice touch.

    Don’t usually leave a review but my time at nomads was so bliss and chill I felt like I had to. Staff made me feel at home as did the people and I quickly got to know my surroundings and meet new people

    This hostel was great mainly because of the people who work there but also because of the rooms/ beds. My bed seemed very clean, didn’t squeak too much when you roll over, there was good privacy with the curtains and they had solid lockers for your valuables. The workers were all super friendly and genuinely wanted you to have fun and help you any way they can. I didn’t have much planned for my trip before arriving and they helped me plan out the next month & a half between NZ and Australia👍🏼

    My 6 bed girls room was nice, the curtains make such a good difference to help you get a good night sleep. There’s lots going on but it’s not too crazy which is good and there’s plenty of food at the free breakfast. Jade and Simon are SOOOO nice and helpful!!! They spent ages helping me plan my trip and will find you amazing deals for any activities you want to do!! :)

    Dirty, no lift and lots of stairs, when you have heavy luggages it's really unpractical. Very loud at night. No management to stop people from screaming in the corridors all night long. Avoid !

    This hostel is shocking. Honestly, resembles a frat/party house in the states in all the worst ways. Oddly enough, the dorm rooms aren’t bad at all but the common areas are atrocious. Smallest kitchen I’ve ever seen in a hostel in 8 years of traveling. The front desk staff must all be new because they are the least helpful bunch I’ve come across. They literally just don’t give a s***. I question that this venue has even passed health and safety requirements. However, location is great!

    Blood and other stains on the blind by my bed. People living there so had stuff everywhere and nowhere to lock my belongings. I know I am not the target demograpgic for a hostel like this but it was awful and I left a day early and received no refund or no one asked why I was checking out early
