Not more you can ask for from a hostel! Staff are really helpful and friendly. Moved here from artsfactory, SO much better quality accom and just as fun. Stayed in a 4 bed dorm with ensuite. Really great facilities, bathroom was the best I've seen on the east coast! Comfy beds, clean rooms.

As soon as we walked through the door we had a warm welcome by staff at the reception which was a great start. We stayed in a 6 bed ensuite room, was absolutely spotless!! We were right at the end of the corridor so was quiet at night time too... the communal areas were good, we used the kitchen for...

The Nomads in the centre of Byron Bay is a great location for any backpacker looking to enjoy the city life in Byron Bay as well as the nightlife. With the shore at a 1 minute walk and the mainstreet at the end of the street you will definitely enjoy spending your time there. The hostel itself has isn't to...

Nomads was a great place to meet people and close to the beach, and bar street. Sadly, we paid for Wifi, but it did not work, also we did have a cockroach in our room. We were not very happy about the place

This place was by far the worst hostel I've ever stayed in. I stayed for one night with some friends in a private room for $165- absolute waste of money. I may as well of stayed in a 10 bed dorm with the amount of noise in the corridors ALL night long. The room was filthy, I don't think it...

Before bookin look at the price and imagine what you can get for that and that's what your getting. However you could also get internet. You do get a travel shop to help with the rest of your journey. Very nicely decorated. Modern. Lots of charge points. We had issues with our room and as soon as we pointed them...

Rough and run down hostel. The hot tubs were out of service, which was one of the main reasons I chose this place. The rooms are crammed and the AC isn't efficient. Communal areas are reasonable but there is very little atmosphere. The best thing about this place was the comfortable beds and central location.

Stayed in this hostel last weekend and we loved it! It really ticks all the boxes! Rooms were clean, staff were very helpful and the hostel is perfect location in the heart of town. We would highly recommend this hostel to anyone.
