The whole hostel was really filthy - we had a cockroach in the room, as well as bllod stain on the quilt. Vacuum cleaner is never used in the rooms. Bathroom, especially toilet seat in the Private double room was like in a public toilet - not cleaned , neither desinfected. In these days when we should really careful about hygiene, this is unacceptable. Also mattresses should be thrown out in the garbage - they are not fit for sleeping! Super noisy - either from other guests, or from bars, or from construction site nearby, or from drunk people on the street.
The beds were lumpy and squeeky
If I could give a minus rating I would, I would have rather slept on the street. First of all I have slept in many a hostel and I am well aware you get exactly what you pay for but in the case of nomads Hostel I feel I should have been paid to stay there almost like a reward for some sort of weird social experiment on a reality TV show. Both 8 bedroom dorms I stayed in were barely big enough for 2 people, smelly, unclean sheets, lack of pillows, over crowded, hadnt been hoovered in what looked like months the list goes on. Also while I stayed there the place was over run with a large group of French people who did as the please and had free roam over the hostel. Drinking in the rooms started from roughly mid day and continued to all hours of the evening until they eventually turned to drug use which appeared to be in the form of MDMA caps. Music blaring through the halls and from the rooms but blantantly over looked by management. Small bit of respite between the hours of maybe 12am - 3am where they went to a club but even then the noise pollution from outside was enough to wake the dead. 3am comes around and your thrown back into hell once again. The large group running in and out of rooms at their will, partying and shouting freely. You ask politely to keep the noise down but to know avail, this eventually turns to a somewhat sterner request but only antagonizes them and they become more hostile. You lie there wide awake, praying, hoping they pass out soon. Morning comes around. And you are abused for getting up at responsible hour as the have the audacity to give out for you for mildly disturbing them. 12pm rolls around repeat. Awful, awful experience.
Booked a king with ensuite, arrived and the bed hadn't been made, no sheets, nothing anywhere in the room. Dont expect much when staying in a Backpackers but this was horrible, would have a rather staying in the dorm. Also there were hairs all over the bathroom
Nice view from our room.
Our room was on the 6th floor, right below the kitchen and veranda on the 7th so it was extremely noisy with the guests cooking and playing around.
