7.1Good
Tyler, Nov 2019

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.

9.1Wonderful
Robert, Apr 2019

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.

9.1Wonderful
Robert, Mar 2019

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.

Opt for a Private Room

Several guests recommended booking a private room with a private bathroom for more comfort and privacy, as shared facilities were sometimes reported as unclean and crowded.

Bring Your Own Toiletries

Be Prepared for Limited Parking

Bring a Fan

Inquire About Bathroom Facilities

Due to reports of limited and sometimes unclean bathroom facilities, it's advisable to inquire about the current status and cleanliness of the shared bathrooms before booking.
