Liked: big kitchen, great location

Disliked: Unlucky to be in a room with less clean people, but that can happen anywhere. Only issue i had was that there was only free wifi in the common areas and even that didnt work very well. Also i had to pay to store my luggage for a day after checkout

Liked: It was cheap and centrally located.

Disliked: I don't want to fault Nomads Westend for my experience, because that is dependent on the other guests of the hostel. I stayed one week in The Church, and sharing a room with 31 other people is rough (and I consider myself pretty tolerant). The kitchen and dining area gets pretty crowded every night, not enough cookware to go around. The lockers are not cheap, and I would not leave anything valuable in The Church. Nomads Westend isn't terrible, but it isn't comfortable either. You could do better with World Square.
