    Private rooms are dreadful ”
    We moved out of here after the first day to Whitsunday Terraces Resort - much better value for money for an ocean view and kitchen facilities. The rooms come with a double bed, air con didn’t work, tv didn’t work, line to check in and check out was really long. It has a kitchen facility but only a sink? No cupboards, drawers, microwave or other facilities - very weird room. Do not recommend, if you’re a backpacker and want a private room stay - you’ll spoilt for choice in really decent non-hostel places. If you’re a couple or older, I would definitely not recommend.

    Great stay, have stayed previously in a dorm room here and expected the usual tiny private room.. I was pleasantly surprised, the room was massive! Air con worked well, staff were great. Massive walk in closet and kitchen area. Our room was very quiet and set back so were not disturbed. Facilities on site were great too. Perfect location in Airlie Beach. Couldnt ask for anything more!

    Book an Airbnb ....”
    The Nomads is definitely specialized in accommodating backpackers in dorms. I had booked a double bed room for a significant amount of money and had roaches on the floor and a rather outlived bathroom. If you want privacy and you are NOT on a budget book yourself an airbnb. The staff is very helpful and friendly.

    If you've come looking for a party, you've found it, You need some good shut down skills to sleep here at the weekend. Huge land owned backpackers - a great camping onsite option - book on site only x2 pools are a nice touch - nice to have a low number of guests in dorms for sharing purposes. id stay here again

    dirty, spider webs above bed.. in Australia that's making you sleep in horror..., loud bar til 4 am.. no sleep, electricity was turned off by them.., only hours after asking it was on again.. they said oh yes he switched it off to test something and didn't turn it back on... but it gets worse, "he" another of those rude staff or the same or the manager was very rude when the wifi didn't work and we needed to ask.. on too only the female staff has to wear extremely sexistic t-shirt print with slogan being: "Wanna hop in bed with me? Ask me how!" Disgusting, misogynistic, sexist management!!!

    Hey Kristina, We are sad to see that you didn't enjoy your stay. We have 2 bars on site, 1 only operates weekends and closes at 12am. The other is open til 1.30am latest but is usually closed before 12am on weekdays. The operating hours are set by licensing and we would not be open past these times. The other bars in town have licenses til 3am, so we are unsure which bar you are referring to. We only turn off electricity knowingly to a room if it is necessary and always do all we can to get the electricity back to the room as quickly as possible. Im sorry if this did not happen for you and this will be followed up. We have a wide range of uniforms/designs staff wear. The uniform in question is not limited to female staff - all of our staff wear this from time to time to promote our bedhopper pass package. We apologize if this caused you offence as that is not the intention of the design or management involved. We hope you are enjoying the rest of your travels Kind regards

    The kitchen was always messy and dirty and the bathrooms didn't look very tidy either, so that could definitely be better! The rooms were nice with air conditioner and good space for everybody. Perfect location!

    and loud music all the time too use the "free wifi" in your room you've to pay 4$ per day.. loud from their party bar all night wifi didn't work and one of the staff was rude, just grabbed my phone wo my permission and tapped around on it when I asked about it. still wifi didn't work then. just touching around on my phone instead of giving me proper information.. seems to me like a very uncaring place to sum it up understaffed or incapable or both. bad management in airlie beach. also they don't communicate that the base and nomads are same hostels there, when you book online. which is deceptive

    don't care to send forgot items over to other nomads hostel”
    I'm really disappointed that I stayed there for 3 days, the music always loud and they don't care about their guests belongings. It's a matter of few minutes to at least secure my items from the public space, but they don't even do that. They're too busy to do their job and help their guests!

    Hey Kristina, Thanks for taking the time to leave us a review. We do have music playing in the reception area during reception opening times and in the bars during licensing hours, however these are kept within appropriate decibel readings to our license and so our receptions can focus on work. We apologize that your trousers and top were not found. I myself went to the washing line after my colleague had also been to check and we couldn't see the items you had described. Photos of the washing line were also sent to you to see if you could spot your belongings as we wanted to help you find them. Unfortunately when things are left in public areas for an extended period of time, people can pick stuff up by mistake. Whenever we find guest belongings we will do all we can to reunite them with the owner. We hope you are enjoying the rest of your travels. Kind regards Hannah

    Great location close to the bars, restaurants and main attractions. The dorm where I was staying in was very clean and spacious. Unfortunately everything else was pretty bad. The kitchen was utterly disgusting and the facilities were poor. There wasn't enough cutlery, pottery and cleaning stuff provided. The kitchen also closed already at 9pm. What really annoyed me was that there was no dining/common area inside as it was quite chilly in the morning and evening. There are just a few picnic benches outside where you can eat. The reception closed already at 9pm, while they're supposed to be open until 10pm. Wouldn't stay here again, but it's ok if you just need a bed for the night.

    Everything pretty run down and dirty! Room: 8 bed ensuite: No reading light, NO LOCKERS. Bathroom: ceiling is a mixture between rust and mold, holes in the walls, stains. Pool: was closed for maintenance when I arrived, after that it was still very milky Kitchen: -ABSOLUTLEY DISGUSTING. Only had 2 cups. Yes 2! -Cutlery was constantly empty and you had to get it from the drying racks just to wash it again because it was wet and nasty. Would have loved to dry it but -no clean towels provided -NO INSECT SCREEN or door: bugs, flies, ants, 1 cockroack in food storage/kitchen area -again: holes in the walls, paint coming off, dirt on floor, in food shelves, gross fridges Wifi: free only in reception. I paid for the in room wifi but it (also the free one) was down one night. When I asked, they said it would be fixed whithin 1 hour. But didn‘t work for the whole evening and night. One of the worst hostel I‘ve been at

    No value for money!”
    Stayed 3 nights in 8bed-dorm. No control of guests sleeping in my room. Two drunkyards brought a third one - not checked in - with them at 0.30am. Stuff was obviously recruted mainly from travellers - poor Service & no greetings. Check-in after 2pm. Lugage-room unlocked and uncontrolled. Noisy musik all night until 2-4am. One monring noisy musik starting at 6am. Nobody cares and nobody feels responsible. I can not recommend staying in Nomadis Airlie Beach. Much better Airlie YHA!
