Nothing lacking, prime area, close to transport, shopping, galleries, restaurants and entertainment.

Central location, friendly and helpful staff. Ideally suited for someone on a limited budget.

The best thing about this hotel is the location. The bar next door also does free dinner meals from 6-7pm every night which is good. Not too impressed with the "housekeeping" staff, who opened our door on more than one occasion on the same day BEFORE 10 AM. Initiallhy they asked if we wanted our rubbish cleared - there was no rubbish to clear as we had arrived very late the night before. Houskeeping kept entering our room asking additional questions like "are you sure you dont want your rubbish emptied?" or, "how about your bathroom?" or "how about your towels?". For the two mornings following they did not appear, by which time our rubbish was in need of emptying. The room itself is fine if you're planning to be out and about all day long. The price only reflects the fact that you're getting a small bathroom. We had a double bed and single bed in the room, at an awkward angle so the only space for the television was right next to the large bed (50cm away from your face)

We had the choice of other places to stay but decided on Nomads and pleasantly surprised by Nomads - we will stay there again.

I used this hotel because of close proximity to Te Papa Museum. I found personnel very helpful. Each day presented with a card for free dinner! I ordered a steak with extras which was not an unreasonable cost. It was excellent and cooked to perfection by a young chef. Plenty of places around if a full breakfast is required. So happy with my stay.

If you are wanting to party, this is an ideal place. The bar has great deals on drinks & meals. If you are a family, or just wanting somewere to chill out & relax, this would not be the place for you. The music is extreamly loud & sleeping would be next to impossible. Overall I would rate this place about a 6/10.

Good location for Te Papa conference. My biggest concern about this hotel was the state of the bed linen which was obviously not washed between clients. Bathroom was clean and my 3rd floor room was quiet.

I am really "impressed" the service provided by the hotel. I paid for late check out but service staff came into my room without checking this while my partner and me were still sleeping.

We found Nomads to be a very convenient place to stay in Wellington. It was within walking distance of most of the places we wished to visit. Would recomment it to anyone looking for well priced central location in Wellington.

We had a great stay. Friendly staff and guests and the bar next door was great. Lots of fun, just rowdy enough and awesome value for money with the food!

This hotel was in an excellent location in Wellington. A short walk to the railway station, information centre and national museum. It was a brilliant base from which to explore the city. The only downfall was late night traffic noise and unfortunaetly there was roadwork's at night when I stayed.

Ideal location for Rugby Sevens-but didn't get told how to access electric and TV in room- also ,found other peoples' rubbish under bed when packing to go. Great experience for non backpacking 'Oldies'

The room had 2 sets of bunks, 1 a double and single, the other 2 x singles. there was no other furniture. The ensuite was fine. The security was good. There was no towel or phone in the room

The location is central, but there's busy traffic and a disco-bar owned and heavily promoted by the hotel right next to it. This meant shouting people on the street and late-night music thumping through the building. This is clearly a place for young, single party-people that like this sort of stuff close by. The bedroom for 2 people with a small double bed was filled up with 3 extra beds which left little room to move around.
