A bed before 3 sleepless nights on a campercar Dec 09, 2015
I booked this hostel because it was cheaper than the one Jacob and Arminas were staying at. We were only staying a night. The hostel is in the centre of the city, so everything was walking distance. The only downside was that the wi-fi wasn't free (although there was a tour company next door who the hostel worked in partnership with who allowed us to use the wifi). Apart from that, everything else was pretty good...the bathroom stunk of bleach, and there was always a cleaner lingering whenever I I can safely assume that it's pretty clean.

Average Accomadation in Exceptional Location Sep 20, 2011
The Nomads is relatively new and clean, in comparison to some of the nearby backpackers. The bar and internet room are sufficient, but the travel desk and job search services are nothing in comparison to the nearby Base ACB. The best part about Nomads is the location - it is only 30 seconds off of Queen St (main street in Auckland CBD), but that is enough to give you a little respite from the hustle and bustle of the big city. It is located centrally within walking distance of Queen's Wharf, the Viaduct, Britomart, Queen Street, K Road, and Auckland University/Albert Park. Definitely a good value for the money and the location can't be beat. If you want advice getting a job probably best to give Nomads a pass.

A Hostel To Meet People In Apr 05, 2010
If you are short on friends to travel with or would just like to supplement your own with new people for further laughs, then you could do worse than Nomads Fusion.

It is a party hostel to an extent but far quieter than the likes of the Base hostels. Quite a few people staying would be long term stays so the floor they are on would generally be quieter.

The kitchen went through various changes while I stayed there. Firstly there were no cups at all. Then there were no bowls. Bowls kept sporadically disappearing. The kitchen on a whole was quite well equipped its just most people who stay there must be used to mammy cleaning up after them. Nobody washed their dishes and pots. This always made things very very frustrating when it came to cooking.

To make matters worse your food would often be subject to theft. Much of the theft was generally found to be either a cheapskate long termer or a member of staff.

The roof top area is great on sunny day and the jacuzzi on the roof certainly spruced things up a little bit.

The tv room was quite nice if a little small. Plenty of machines for internet and they offer wifi access but it's not the cheapest. (I mostly used the library up the road).

The bar was ok. Some of the staff were fun but most of them seemed to hate their lives. The hostel offer a free meal to guest as do all Nomads hostels.....note this free meal was often not even enough to fill the belly of a tiny bird yet alone satisfy a peckish man.
