              It was orderly and peaceful, clean and friendly environment. Value for money and I loved it.

              The quality of bread available for breakfast was poor and there was no brown bread.

            • Family with children
              4.2

              I did not like it at all.The room was not clean and in poor state of repair.Simple facilities like cupboard was broken.There was no mirror in the room and no towels.The rates are comparable to Holiday Inn but facilities are not.It is good for a single person for short stay only and is comparable to hostel/dormitory for students.

            • Group of friends
              7.8

              The only thing I could complain about was noise , and the how horrendously heavy the door was and the loud bangs every 5 seconds when one closed .

            • Single
              8.8

              Staff friendliness, free internet, good facilities available, size of property, good recreational areas, clean place

            • Family with children
              5.4

              The ease of coming and going and the breakfast included was handy

              The communal bathroom not having any floor mats

            • Group of friends
              6.2

              Take it at face value, E.G. no airs or graces. It's a backpackers hostel, as an ex-student, I have had worse experiences in halls of residence!! Nomad was clean, safe and basic - all we needed was a bed and a place to shower, etc. Friendly staff and good location.

              5.0

              Nice staff, close to the center, good breakfast, good price

              room dirty, smelly carpeting, a mould on the wall, uncomfortable beds

              7.0

              Very close to the city centre.

              Beds were creaking, making noises every time someone turned over. Toilet papers were often running out.

            • Group of friends
              2.8

              Too crowded, broken toilet doors and shower doors, feel insecure, bad location which seems dangerous, hard to get to

            • Single
              2.8

              The beds were uncomfortable, there were people fighting, shouting and screaming and slamming doors untill 4 am. Service was slow at reception.

            • Group of friends
              3.8

              it was basic dirty and dark and dingy

              10.0

              Ideal for somewhere cheap & cheerful, staff were friendly and helpful. Rooms toilets and bathrooms clean. Within walking distance from the city centre (once we found the hostel)... Definatley stay there again and recommend to friends :-)

            • Single
              7.0

              quiet - order - internet - crow - various people - respect people

              the bed is not comfotable - locker is not find in WC - Mixer of water is not found

            • Group of friends
              8.2

              Ideal place to sleep after concert at milliniuem stadium !

            • Single
              9.2

              The staff is very friendly and helpful. It's clean and located on a quiet street, very central too, 5 mns walk from the main street city centre.

              The only little thing that I could say is that it lacks hooks in dorms and bathrooms to hang your cloths on.
