Dirty bathrooms, very loud (party every night), dirty and small kitchen and not very helpful staff. As all the other Nomads, the wifi is only free in the lobby and only until 7 pm. Good aspects: Central, right next to Aldi

Traveling with my girlfriend and both enjoyed our 2 night stay. Rep meets you at bus stop and explains things to do. Walk o the light house about 40 mins walk but we'll worth it. Decent hostel, air con decent would recommend for couples and groups of friends!

Me and a friend booked the deluxe room which had an ensuite. The bathroom was fairly modern and the hostel is in a great location, walking distance to all the cafes, bars and beach and we had a bed bid enough to sleep three of us. Our room was smelly and could definitely use an air freshener as the window...

I stayed here with a friend for the first stop of our east coast travels and were greeted by very friendly and helpful reception staff! The rooms were really big and clean. Jack on the travel desk was very helpful and sorted two very unorganised people out for the rest of our trip! I would definitely recommend staying here!

Good location to clubs, beach and restaurants. Went with friends for birthday night out. Good security, makes you feel safe while being there. Have stayed multiple times before but found staff on this occasion not as friendly on previous times. I'm Not sure what has changed. Still overall good would stay again.

My bf and i booked the nomads as we stayed in one in Sydney. We didn't realise but we booked a deluxe private room by mistake. It was great! Just like a normal hotel room.

The hostel is noises with buskers outside and is generally lively, that's not always a bad thing it just depends if you want that. The rooms are clean with good showers and plenty of space with fairly thick mattresses. The kitchen was very modern and had a lot of space the jacuzzis aren't that warm but the weather is good...

Me and my husband booked one deluxe room from Hotels.com. When we booked the room it described to have a king bed, however when we arrived at the place we were told that it's a king room with 2 single bed which can be put together to turn into a queen bed. The hostel staff told us it's the Hotels.com...

Probably the best hostel for location in Byron bay, situated in the middle of the town and only a five minute walk to the beach. Stayed in a six bed dorm and was clean. Toilets and showered were cleanish, however kitchen area could have been better.

34 bucks for a ten bed dorm the cheapest they have, just way too expensive! Terrible wi-fi, plus when went to bed sheets and duvet cover hadn't been cleaned from person before. Room was very hot even with air con. Do not recommend.
