Judi McDonald thinks…

"Liked that we could check out at midday for an extra $10. Enjoyed the atmosphere of mostly young people & the bar next door."

Liked: The location is spot on, the bar next door has something going on every night, the hostel workers are really sociable and drink with the travellers most nights, the movie room/common room areas are excellent places to hang out and meet others...all in all, awesome!

Disliked: Some people got free breakfast, others didn't. The variation between prices of dorms...some were paying $17.50, others $27 for the same bed. Book online as it's much more expensive to just turn up!

Liked: Excellent location, large kitchen and lounge areas. Good value if you are only looking for somewhere to sleep and store your stuff.

Disliked: Our dorm was tiny, there were few plugs and it smelled like feet! The bathrooms were also tiny and there was a timer on the shower of 15 seconds, you have to keep on pressing the button, little annoying, the timer should be for a lot longer. Most definitely a party hostel, there were people running around all night shouting.

Liked: good location

Disliked: rooms were pretty cramped and very loud due to the bar downstairs which is no good if you are there to snowboard and need some sleep. the bar is very impersonal and the crowd it draws is very young, annoying and stupid. if you are 18 and want to scream and be annoying then stay at this hostel, you will love it. the staff were pretty flat for the most part but there one or two guys there that were legends.

Liked: Right in the centre of town, near to veryone and the staff were really friendly and helpful. If you want to party, come here.

Disliked: It needs a good lick of paint, the beds were battered and broken, and its not the cleanest place in the world. Dorm doors being left open people, people shouting in the corridors all night. Very young crowd. Dont bother coming here if you want to sleep.

Liked: It's in a pretty good location.

Disliked: The staff are backpackers too and are ignorant. They know nothing of the area, hikes, etc so that leaves the travel desk as one of the worst I have been to. The reception are pretty bad too. I was ashamed to find that the receptionist I was dealing with was also Irish. Embarrassing!! The rooms smell, the kitchen is dirty, the showers are dire. All in all, go to Nomads, you're saving nothing by staying here.
