Stay at Nomads Brisbane Hostel

Nomads Brisbane Hostel is a heritage listed building found in the very centre of Brisbane city opposite Central Station.

The rooftop terrace is the place in the Brisbane CBD to catch some sunshine, relax, have a BBQ or just watch the world go by while you wait for your laundry to finish in one of our two laundry rooms. If the sun’s not your thing then we also have common areas where you can chill out and get some quality tv time or cook up a feast for your new backpacker mates in our guest kitchen.

We have plenty of options for you to choose the accommodation in Brisbane that suits you best. Want a bit of privacy? Choose a single room, or if you’re travelling in a couple choose one of our private double or twin rooms. If you’re looking for something a bit more sociable choose one of our dorm rooms and make some new friends! We have dorms rooms from 4 to 10 beds and also our Sanctuary rooms which are for females only.

Your local guide to Brisbane

Brisbane offers so much to see and discover. Each suburb has a different vibe and personality with plenty to do. The CBD is home to the Queen Street Mall, often referred to as the heart of the city. After exploring over 1000 shops in the city centre chill out in one of the parks dotted around the city or enjoy a free ferry ride along the river.

A short walk from Nomads Brisbane Backpackers you’ll find South Bank. Located on the southern banks of the Brisbane River, there are 17 hectares of parklands, the world famous Streets Beach and loads of places to eat. South Bank is also home to numerous events throughout the year.

Fortitude Valley is always worth a visit, because it’s elegant but also offbeat. You’ll find heritage listed buildings next to contemporary buildings. The Valley is where to go for live music and for the amazing Chinatown.
