Nomads Noosa!! Hasting Street, Great Hostel Life and good place to be for a Christmas whilst travelling

Hands down the best Hostel in Noosa

After working and living in the hostel for two months and having to sadly leave a couple of weeks ago. I would still highly recommend Nomads in Noosa to stay if you are travelling through the East Coast.

As I have said before in my Blog posts, Noosa is an up market Australian holiday resort. It is full of lovely beach shops and nice restaurants located close to the beach. Unfortunately, it is a place that is often overlooked by backpackers due to the fact it is relatively expensive and known for not having very good nightlife. People often just stop through on there way to or on the way back from the famous Fraser Island.

Unfortunately, Nomads hostel in Noosa does not get the representation for various reasons and I am definitely not saying that if you would like a luxurious stay in Noosa that this would be the place to stay. If you would like a cheap stay, located in between the beach and large supermarkets, friendly staff and a pretty fun bar to go at night….. this would definitely be the place to stay.


There are five main hostels to stay at in Noosa which are as follows:

– Flashpackers (Inbetween Sunshine Beach and Main Beach)
– Dolphins (Located on Sunshine Beach)
– YHA, Halse Lodge (Main Beach)
– Noosa Backpackers (Located in Noosaville)
– And of course Nomads (Located in Noosa Junction, close to main beach)

I am not going to bias and honestly say that all of these are good hostels and are good for different reasons.

There are a list of amazing things to do in Noosa, which include the following:

– Great Shopping on the famous Hasting Street
– Amazing views
– Beautiful Beaches

It was sad to say goodbye to Noosa and everyone that I have met there, but moving onto Sydney to see what happens there.

Lots of Love xo
