Nomads Noosa Backpackers Hostel

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Noosa was an absolute perfect place, yet nomads was not. Came to an entirely empty kitchen, equipped with only (I counted, yes) 4 forks, 3 knives, 3 spoons and the worst pans ever. The kitchen was too small for the amount of people, and hardly kept clean. The staff was super friendly though, the rooms quite comfortable, and the WiFi worked fine (only at the reception). The main bar is located in the hostel, meaning you have to accept loud music untill 12. You cannot bring your own alcohol.

Very crowded rooms, people stole things from our room, but staff were quiet accommodating.Food wasn't the best, ate there twice and both times the food was cold and late and also food came out at different times.

Had a very terrible experience staying here. Bad hostel, even worse customer service. You're better off staying somewhere else during your time in Noosa. My stay here nearly ruined my entire trip down the coast.

As a young solo traveler (25), Nomads is a great hostel where they make it easy to socialize with other travelers. They have an onsite bar with different meal-deals every night, a pool table, foosball and own DJ - perfect for hanging out and meeting new friends. Frank at the travel desk is the most friendly and helpful! Additionally, Noosa is great!! And the hostel is walking distance from the beach and town.

Stayed 4 nights and had such a good time! They have a lovely backyard with a pool area, a volleyball court and a cool bar next door. The ensuite rooms are clean and comfy. Friendly staff at reception and travel desk, got all the answers to my questions! Would come back anytime!!

I stayed at nomads for a week and absolutely loved it. The staff are amazing and do whatever they can to make you comfortable. They are truly great people!! The hostel itself is very comparable to others I have stayed in while travelling. The rooms are very clean and there is plenty of space in the kitchen. The location is perfect because the shopping centre is a 5min walk and the beach, national park and Hastings street are only 10min away! There is always something going on at KBs (the bar in the hostel) which makes it very easy to be social and meet new people. If you are travelling to Noosa, you are missing out if you don't stay at Nomads.

Had an awesome time at friendly and sociable hostel ideal if you are travelling alone and want to meet people...nice atmosphere in the bar, good drinks prices and always something going on and close to lots of beaches and some amazing coastal walks...I didn't want to check out but had other plans further up the coast...would definitely visit again!

A very warm welcoming by super friendly staff. Room was all what I'd expected and was totally happy with my surroundings!! The beach is just down the road and there's shops a stones throw away. Really good vibes & happy people about with a bar that's full of energy, music style not my preference however I had much fun all the time so no complaints there!!! Recommended and wouldn't hesitate going back there!! Thanks for making my stay what it was!!

I booked bed from girls room. The room was really nice and big! Clean and comfy beds. Good showers but sometimes the water was cold. Nice and clean place! Wifi was little bit slow. Beach 15min walk away!

The hostel is alright and other guests are nice, most staff are great, but paying customers are treated like criminals, with daily alcohol checks by 2 security guards inside the rooms. Never saw something like that before.
