nice place to stay”

price, location and staff

My boyfriend and I went to Melbourne mainly for shopping so we wanted to save as much money in place to stay. We have chosen Nomads as it has a reasonably low price and it is located in the CBD. The room was nice and clean, bigger than we expected and convenient. The staff was nice and helpful. The only thing that made it not so perfect is that the person who clean the rooms came too early that he woke us up for a few times. Overall it is a nice place to stay if you just need a comfortable place to sleep and wanna save money. I will definitely come back to this hostel if I visit melbourne next time. :)

Good location”

Stayed on a 6-bed all female dormitory with our own toilet and shower inside which are cleaned daily. Location is also very good, a good walk from Southern Cross station for the airport bus and pretty much everywhere, just one block away from the Queen Victoria Winter Night Market. Didn't purchase any transportation card as we went around Melbourne CBD. Hostel is also the pickup location of the tours we booked.

Lovely Hotel”

Good location

nomads melbourne hotel located next to queen victoria market. within walking distance can easily access to city circle tram which connecting major public transport at melbourne and it is very convenience. from the airport we can easily access to the city with city-airport express, nomads hotel is an ideal from the first time and budgeted traveler to melbourne. value added point on the security and cleanliness at the nomads hotel as access card is needed for second floor and above. self-services bed sheet change is required during check out able to sustain the hygiene level at the room. a pub, kitchen and internet café are available at the ground floor of the hotel. anyway i’m not able to comment more on this as i spent most of my time at city.

Centrally Located yet Poor Staffs service attitude”

Location, Value of Money, Free 1 day lugage storage

Arrived 12.00 noon, the staffs busy chatting within themselves eventhough they saw me waiting there. And rudely being told Check In only start 2pm. 4.30pm I came back and took me 1/2 hour to check in as they did not found my reservation via Agoda. Great Location directly infront of Victoria market, walking distance to tram and Melbourne Central station. I was the only 1 in the 10 bed room with attached toilet and shower. Clean room compare with the other Nomad near Southern Cross station. The wall is so thin that eventhough the room located at the corner building far away from lift you still can hear the lift door opening sound. Free lugage storage for 1 day after check out.

Affordable accommodation in the heart of Melbourne”

Friendly staff, centrally located, good value

A brief 2 night stay in a shared room while visiting Melbourne. Very helpful and friendly staff and friendly room mates made this a pleasant visit. Great location in central Melbourne, close to transport, Vic Markets and restaurants / food outlets. Easy access to long distance trains and airport busses. Good value for money, especially noting the location in Melbourne's city "grid". Clean. Only thing was noise from the bar downstairs and noise from "socially confused" neighbours returning in the early morning - but hey, this is a backpackers and thats part of the fun. A good stay.

Much better, than I thought.”

I stayed just for 1 night. It is a really big hostal. If you see it that way, it is really clean. Unfortunately the kitchen is much to small, if you like to cook. But for me it was completely ok. The atmosphere was really good and the staff is nice. There was just one situation at the reception, I didn't like: I arrived in Melbourne really late by plain and I checked in, in the middle of the night in the hostel. So I was really tired. The reception told me I have to download "tipi" to check in and have to do it via these App. I had to give them ("tipi") a lot of private informations (scann the passport, download a private picture etc.). After that I wrote to "tipi" and they told me, that this kind of check-in is just optional. I also could show my passport at the reception. It took me much more time to check-in this way and I don't like to give all my private data everywhere. After that I deleted the "tipi" app.

Reviewed January 09, 2018

G'day there! Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review - I'm glad to hear you enjoyed your stay. I apologise that the staff member on duty didn't give you an option not to download Tipi. It's company policy to give guests an option - you don't need to unless you wish to enjoy the benefits. I'm sorry that had an negative affect on your stay and I hope you come back to join us again so we can exceed your expectations. Best wishes & safe travels, Georgia.

+ D, in the reception is awesome! She helped me a lot. +they clean rooms everyday and check the rooms, count the beds which is for security and i appreciate. +clean toilets and bathrooms +some bunka are double at the buttom, if you can catch it your stay becomes a heaven.. +next to victoria market, 6 mins away from melbourne central station. IGA market is on the corner. Coles in the center 5 mins away! +not the cheapest but still cheap alcohol. Everyday they have deal and games,awesome! -too noisy and people are young between 18-23 which they party everyday. They close the beer garden around 11 but it doesn't stop people to go out for smoking and talk out loud! If you go to school 5 days a week like me or work, you might have some problems about sleeping.. -kitchen is small than the other hostels.sometimes u need to wait a couple of people to get out so you can find a space to cook. But i never had such problems like that, u become friends with people which makes cooking enjoyable.

Good service but very average rooms for price”

Great staff, free airport shuttle

Despite the very average rooms, toilet and bathroom were clean. We booked a room with a king bed but it was really two single beds put together, and you would not want to sleep on where the two beds meet. The room was very spacious and unfortunately the little heater didn’t do much help for a cold Melbourne day. On the plus side, Nomads is located right beside the Victorian markets, and they sell some pretty funky food there.

No way to make a tea at night or be able to chill outside the room at this late arrival. Kitchen is quite small for a Backpackers place and needs a renewal.

Acceptable Accommodation That is Good Value for Money”

Pretty good accommodation in the CBD. Areas were fairly clean. Nice amount of common space. Can get noisey at night. Definitely a party hostel, but doesn't get super rambunctious. Bathrooms can be a bit of a struggle because there is no where to put your stuff. If you're lucky you can find a shower with multiple hooks. Tiny sinks make washing your face very messy and no way to dry your hands. Kitchen is quite small. All of the cubbies you see in the photos are for staff members only. Can be difficult to find space in the fridge and it always smells. Overall its a decent place to stay for the cost. Very good location if you're interested in all the major sights.
