Free Pancake in the morning, Good location; But Bad smell, Bad lightning, No Wifi after 7pm
The only 2 good things I can think of this place are the location and free pancake in the morning. Really that's it. Other than that, when you walk into the place, there's a strong awful smell. Maybe because it's a bar at the ground floor, a lot of people smoke there and there's not enough open space for air circulation. Place is not that clean either. Besides, there's no WIFI after 7pm, you have to pay for it if you want wifi at night. Booked for 2 nights stay and almost couldn't stand and wanted to move out on the first night. Won't really recommend staying at this place again..

Overnight Stay Melbourne.
1/ Friendliest place I have been in! 2/ Great bar & Facilities! 3/ Very comfortable and clean accomodation!
Great! Friendliest staff, got to meet some interesting travellers, great bar and the venue was very clean and comfortable! Wish I had more time to chill out, but will definitely be back and hopefully somewhat more regularly. I live locally, but love the city. Hope to live in the city one day, but till then, Nomad's, I think, will be the place to stay. Thankyou to all, including travellers Heether & Dais!
