Covid-19 in Brisbane ‘20

Submission of this review lands on the 36th day of the WHO declaring Covid-19 a global pandemic. And 22 days into Queensland’s boarder closure. My experience of/at Nomads Brisbane Hostel began a month ago and two days ago today. Upon booking in, I intended to stay for a week. Due to two circumstances, both extreme yet both largely unrelated (the later, however, being the boarder closure), it has become my home and for (?)… Thankfully, as my form of exercise, so far the unexpected beauty of the city has revealed itself to me thru my camera lens. Boasting 'We Beat Any Price’, Nomads is self assuredly safe within its competition. Therefore, condition wise, expect what you pay for. But in this time of global uncertainty, more importantly humanity wise, expect more. Over the month, I’ve observed it become the beaming example of a place of necessity. Considering this time last week it housed 17 guests to its 500+ beds, if management has demonstrated the odd level of anxiety, it's a relief knowing that they are human. As the staff have adjusted to changes in law that are rewriting the book of hospitality from how, only weeks ago, we knew it. But by doing so with kind yet firm measure over didactic discipline, the guests accordingly oblige - dropping the odd question where necessary. This has created a house of unity in a time of dispersion which is a credit to all concerned. I highly recommend Nomads Brisbane Hostel by the best example of the present into a readjusting future

Great place! Clean and very comfortable environment. Staff are very helpful. Just opposite the central train station and less than 5 mins walk to Queen's street mall. Best rates. Cheap and affordable. Definitely stay there on my next leisure trip.
