  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities

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.

  • Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Horrible smell when first walking in the door, very hot everywhere including the rooms. Amenities are very old and dirty and so too is the elevator. Bed was clean and tidy however, the bunks are very unstable. Would not stay again.

Great location, and pleasant staff. Good value for the money. Complicated code system to open room, especially tricky to enter in the dark! But would stay here again.

Nomad's was a lot cozier than I expected! I love the old school elevator and the shared bathrooms were very clean. The location and surroundings are incredible as well!
