7.1 Good
Pros:The staff were amazingly helpful and the free dinner is huge. Location is superb.
Cons:It was quite unclean, but I suppose that is messy travelers. It's peak season.
9.1 Wonderful
Pros:Nomads Capital is excellent value for money, especially when traveling on a tight budget. And the staff are friendly and helpful - couldn't ask for better!
Cons:The couches in the common room are very tired and could do to be replaced.
9.1 Wonderful
Pros:There were good storage available in the dorms with lockable cupboards, bag/shoe shelves and space to hang clothes and towels.
Cons:The bunk beds were especially noisy and rattled with even the slightest movement. I had the bottom bunk and the girl on the top one was only slight, yet I kept waking up any time she moved as the whole bunk creaked and rattled.
