  • Location is the only good thing about this hostel. The booking confirmation email had a cost estimate for the airport to city, which ended up being incorrect and we found out later that there was a much cheaper way of getting to the city. The wifi was broken for 24 hours of our stay, and once it was fixed it was not free which it really should be considering the price of the rooms. The room card had to be reset once a day and I found the staff were not very helpful.

  • Don't go there! The fan was making a lot of noise, our food got stolen, the beds were very uncomfortable, not enough showers, the key cards had to be reset five times a day. And the staff were really unhelpful. Not service minded at all. We wouldn't look at Nomads for accommodation anymore.

  • The hostel was a very good facility with very happy and accomodating staff. I would most certainly recommend a stay at Wellington's Nomad hostel. The adjoining bar/restaurant is also a good place to spend time at with good food and well priced drinks.

  • A pretty good hostel. Quite a few long-term people in the dorms, though. Definitely a social atmosphere, so don't stay here if you can't put up with loud, annoying partiers...I woke up (well, never really slept at all) to see two people passed out on the floor in the dorm in the morning and vomit in the hallway. Other than that, the location is great and the staff are helpful.

  • Central location but quite anonymous and tiny kitchen. And for this price, wifi should be included. Really a shame that you have to pay for that.

  • Our dorm was great value compared to other hostels as it included a TV and ensuite and was very clean too. Staff are always cheery and super helpful, no matter what time of night! I would definately stay at Nomads again!

One early morning, accompanied with a semi-hot cappuccino and croissant eaten like a true Roman - standing up and in a hurry - I was off on the Metro to the Vatican.
