The room was horrible. It felt like it was about 50 degrees in there and it stunk of feet and dirty clothes. There was a fan but it didn't help the airflow at all. Everyone in there was suffering. The mattress was also pretty lumpy...More

I was saying at Nomads only one night, but really enjoyed it. The location is great, the rooms are clean, the stuff is friendly and it’s quite cheap. The WiFi is slow, but that’s the only thing I did not like. It’s a nice place...More
