Came here for a cheeky weekend and absolutely loved it! Rooms were so clean and looked after. The shed bar was really cool and they had stuff going on every day of the week which was awesome. The staff were fantastic too! Will definitely stay here again the next time I'm in Airlie.

Stayed at nomads for one night and the rooms are nice, beds are ok. The kitchens however are a disaster. Almost nocooking knifes, pots or pans. When there is more then 2 people cooking at the same time you have to wait forever until its your turn. Does not recommend anyone to stay here...

Was very impressed with this hostel! A spacious room, clean and accommodating bathrooms. Andy at reception was really helpful, gave us free luggage storage (for 2 nights) and answered every question with his charismatic charm. As he passed me the spoon for my soup, chicken nuggets fell from the sky and unicorns danced across the desk. It was a great...

We parked our camper here to sleep which costs 25$ per night. There was no soap in any of the men's or women's toilets in either set of bathrooms, and often no toilet paper. After the first night I told them at reception there was no soap and they said this was very unlikely as the toilets (which are filthy)...

Big room with one double bed and 2 bunk beds. Own kitchenette in the room, also en-suite. Own seating outside. Very quite. Lovely surroundings, lots of palm trees, hammocks and pools. If you want action, it is only a short walk away from lively bars. Very clean.

Make sure you visit Nick on the travel desk. He is really helpful! The hostel has lots of few great spaces to chill with friends in the rooms or around the hostel and relax in the sun. A fantastic space to stay before your trips to the Whitsundays.
