I came over to Airlie on my own from the Uk and I'm glad I found this Hostel! Everyone was really friendly and the facilities were great! I'd like to thank the member of staff named Moli for going out of his way to make sure I was happy in my new home. Thanks for an amazing experience, See you...

Nice and big property with pool. Helpful staff and a good bar nextdoor :) #beerpong and just a few minutes away from the city center. We had a big room but not the cleanest, with a loud air conditioner but everything else was just fine!

This place was okay- nothing super special. The location is PERFECT though. It's a great place if you want to go out drinking. We had an unpowered campsite and that was pretty good. You aren't allowed to byo alcohol into this place though.

I stayed at nomads, airlie, for two nights. The staff were very friendly and went out of their way to help us. It's a large hostel with cabins and the option for caravans to park as well. The rooms are clean, air conditioned and he kitchen area in clean. One of the best hostels I stayed in up the east...

We camped, so I can't speak for the hostel dorms themselves, but the camping amenities were foul. The toilet/shower block closest to the campsites had no electricity or water connected, but we were still encouraged to use these facilities. The other toilet block boasted toilets missing the flush buttons so you couldn't flush. Showers mouldy and had no hangers and...

Firstly, my partner and I never intended to stay at this hostel, our coach to Hervey Bay was cancelled due to flooding so we quickly booked two beds in a 8 bed mixed dorm at the Nomads hostel for two nights. (We did this online about 30 minutes before we went to check in) When we arrived I had to...

Perfect location, friendly staff. But soooo dirty, kitchen was revolting and the bathroom in the dorm was nasty. The bar wasn't open, and you can't have your own alcohol, so meeting people Was hard! Won't stay here again. Instead I'd stay at magnums just down the road from nomads, people have been happier with there.
