Reviewed 29 January 2014 via mobile

Is a nice place with good facilities, The backyard garden is really chill, clean in general but the atmosphere is really impersonal, the staff is nice but they don't get involve with the clients. We get a private room who had 2 huge windows covered with a small sticks screen so u can hear all the morning noise.

Great place, great staff, great facilities.
And a pool. Yoga classes, live music, salsa classes, tours...
Nomadas is all a backpacker can dream of, in a nice location in the center of Merida.
I would definitely recommend it.

Nomadas was my first hostel experience on the trip and I still remember it fondly. The helpful and kind staff assisted this day-one traveler with everything she needed and more. It is *the* place for backpackers to stay in Merida, but I would also recommend it to people who don't usually stay in hostels also.

I stayed in a double bed in the large, airy female dorm just off the main courtyard. Private rooms are also available. Everything is brightly colored, clean, and well-kept. Nomadas is full to the brim with freebies: free breakfast (bread, cereal, fruit, coffee), water, computers and wifi, salsa dancing classes, morning yoga, Mexican folk singer in the evening, and cooking classes (love!!) multiple times a week.

A stand-out feature of this hostel is its pool, with hammocks draped leisurely over the shallow end. It is the perfect way to spend a hot Yucatan afternoon after a day out in the city sight seeing. It makes you forget you are in the middle of a city. Nomadas was welcoming and friendly; I'd recommend it as a beautiful refuge in Merida.

Very nice hostel. They have everything clearly marked. The dorms are spacious. They have an awesome swimming pool. Many bathrooms. A very good and healthy if limited breakfast. Free salsa dance classes. A very helpful and nice staff. Good maps.
Great all around stay!! Best hostel I've ever stayed in!

I visited Nomades to check it out and was told that there was a rule that no one over 30 could stay in the dorms. I had not read this in any review so was surprised. And I am a backpacker and longterm traveler.

Very nice hostel. Good atmosphere, nice public space to socialize and meet new people, and well equipped kitchen. One the down side showers are not the nicest (although very clean) and dorms are kinda crowded. Staff is super friendly and helpful. internet is free, and so is the complimentary breakfast. Bottom line - great value for money.

I think this is an excellent hostel, and I can recommand it to everyone. The thing that I liked most was the pool with the hammockes - it is great when the wether is too rainy to walk around ;-) The dorms are OK, especially if you don't have a upper bed... there are no real stairs and you have to use chairs or your climbing ability to climb to the upper bed... but this is the only complaint I can find, because everything else is great in this hostel!

Room Tip: Ask for the "downstairs" beds - there is no ladder for the upstairs beds!
