Staff keep trying to sell you things. Ridiculously noisy. No air con. Bad quality.
They had an elevator and the location was good.
Honestly, this place holds the record for the worst hostel I have stayed at yet. The staff were inflexible and slow at reception. The duvets were old and destroyed, and the pillows were so flat it may as well not have been there. They had an elevator though which was nice. The kitchen was constantly dirty and there was never any towels or soap. The bathrooms were a whole other beast. Firstly, they are unisex, which I don't mind but I know some people wouldn't like. Secondly, they were disgustingly dirty. The floors were always covered in puddles and hair, the sinks were clogged with hair and covered in toothpaste, the counters have never been wiped, the showers just have curtains on some but some had hard doors which was nice. I would have never stepped foot in there without flip flops on. A solid example of how poorly cared for this hostel was: there was a person who had diarrhea and didn't make it to the bathroom, leaving a trail of sh*t to the bathroom. They didn't clean it up - which shame on them for not doing so- but then, 2 days later, after the hostel cleaning staff had come through TWICE, it was still there, half of it being sloppily whipped up with a towel and the towel left in the overflowing trash can. I will never stay at this hostel again. In fact, I will be avoiding nomads as best I can because I find them to be generally poorly cared for. I would have rather slept in a downtown McDonald's bathroom.
Cheap, very good location and easy to find. Helpful staff but...
The property was too loud at weekends and we had a room with a sky light but couldn’t be blocked up so we were awake when the sun rose at 5am every morning. Water kept going hot and cold in the shower. But you get what you pay for!
The staff were nice. Location is great. Lots going on. Great communication as well.
I stayed here 6 years ago for a week and sadly the standard has dropped a lot. No improvements had been made. The bed were so nosy. But everything you needed was available. The showers were also dirty and needed updating. It's in an amazing location. The staff are nice. The facilities itself just need some TLC.
Staff seemed helpful.
2 showers were broken. Wifi barely worked. My lockable drawer under the bed was broken so I couldn't lock away my valuables. Bathrooms need more ventilation.
