    We like the way the staff attended to the guests. They were helpful, and to the point! I would also say - they were friendly. capable young people. keep up the good work!

    Ah! Maybe the administrators could provide a little more extra funds for the breakfast?! when we came down at 8.30am - there were very little cereals; no milk; no sugar left. Tea bags - yes!

    Convenient to all sites i wished to see.

    Room 307 was stuffy, not ideal to be given to a family with a 3 year old.

    It was a descent room for a very good price. Placed in the centre of the city, the room was just what i was looking for. The locker room was very helpful when i had to checkout at 10 am.... Overall it was good and definitely recommendable....

    the location and service at the hotel was excellent. close and convienient walking distance to everything. However we had trouble with the dook keys, and the bathroom could have been cleaner.

    The people who work in the hostel, the rate and the warm bed.

    The old, very dirty Sofas, Chair, kitchen-stuff (pans, pots) und Tables in the kitchen-livingroom and the drunken, noisy people.

  • Single

    location good .staff friendly and helpful.

    The rooms allocated for females only; should be highlighted. females using these rooms should understand and abide by the female only policy.Having strange men staying in yr room is unacceptable and unsafe.

    Cheap and best backpacker hostel in Australia. Staff also very good. I recommend every backpacker to stay there.

    Nomads Westend Backpackers had a real sense of community. There were always things being organised by the accomodation and great deals to take advantage of. I loved the location, everything I wanted to explore and experience was within a 30min walk so it was a fantastic place to base our sydney stay. The floors were quiet and while it was evident there was alot of people interacting and having a good time, I was able to be undisturbed if I wanted to be. It was a great experience and I would certainly reccommend this place to anyone looking to stay central to sydney on a budget, even those not of the backpacking persuasion.

    The site is very convenient to chinatown.

    Closeness to the city

    The fact that there were no towels in the room and we had to wait to the next morning as they did not have any clean ones available

  • Single
    7.0

    I paid only $ 15 per night by reserving the same morning. There is possibility of mixed chamber or not, which is not always proposed in backpacks. Rice and pasta are free all day, very basic but very useful for people who still long time. The bathroom and toilet is in the bedroom. Elevator + cleanliness in the lobby and corridors + very welcome.

    the bathroom was very old and not clean. Paint and tiles peeling off, so not long time maintained... It's difficulte the moorning when there is just one shower in bedroom for 6gilrs!! The bed was very disk, I felt only the springs.

  • Single
    4.6

    Very run down!! I have stayed at Nomad hostels before and their standard was excellent but this was like a hostel from the 1960's that has never once been renovated. I was afraid to sleep on the sheets provided.... There was dried in vomit on the curtain which was broken. Only one lift was working which resulted in having to wait for ages for a lift to your room.

    Loud music at reception. Micro sound voice in each room.

    24Hour receiption service and the price

    The beds were very uncomfortable and i'm still having back pain.
