“Would recommend it!”
Reviewed 24 September 2013

I stayed about 1 week in Nomad and love it.

The rooms are clean and nice (even though some do not have a window), painted in warm colours and decorated with nice Iban paintings.

The staff, especially Chris, is incredibly friendly and helpful and will give you information and help you organizing your trips.

The breakfast (all day!) is great and there are always other travellers hanging around in the kitchen and the 'public area'. You can even cook your own food and rumour has it there is a brand new DVD player ... ;)

My husband and I stayed here for three nights and while we enjoyed the social aspect, i.e. meeting other travelers, we didn't care for the room. We had a double with aircon and no window. It was clean and well maintained but really tiny, with only enough room for the bed up against the wall and a small night stand. The bed was terribly uncomfortable, like lying on a lumpy board. It was painful. The bathroom was tiny, just a toilet and a shower head, but it was workable. The aircon worked great, although it doesn't take much to cool such a small space. Breakfast was white bread toast and jam with coffee, tea or milo, at a table in the common area, available all day and as much as we wanted. We saw Chris (mentioned in other reviews) around a few times but he only spoke with us once, briefly, so while we assume there was a lot of helpful info available, we didn't avail ourselves of it. I'll admit that we don't normally stay in hostels so we were surprised at the size of the room and quality of the bed after reading all the reviews. However, we liked the vibe and with a better bed and a window and we would probably have stuck around longer. As it was, we ended up moving next door to the Furama where we paid $10 more for a large upgraded ensuite room with a comfy bed and wifi in the room.

I visit Nomad since many years always when I am back in Kuching.The atmosphere is warmhearted and friendly, the place feels like a traveller's home and you usually meet great people. As there is a cozy public area there is enough space to meet and chat. Chris has always an open ear and lots of great travel tips what to do and what's on in Kuching. Enjoy a drink at Red Corner's bar just around the corner or help yourself for a relaxing cup of coffee on Nomad's own small terrace.

I have now been here twice. The first time for 10 days and the second for 5. The staff(Chris and team) are very friendly and helpful with any advice you need. The dorms are clean, have lockers and air con. Hot showers. Book exchange. Free 24 hour breakfast and tea/coffee. Free wifi. Lounge with tv and dvds. Kitchen facilities if you want to cook. Great place to meet other travelers. Easy walking distance to river, shops, museums, busses and a host of different restaurants and bars. Laundry service. Everything you need but the people who work here make it special. Thanks guys.

A great backpackers hostel with friendly staff. Great location. We stayed in a clean double room with bathroom and air conditioning. 24h self service breakfast included (toast, butter, jam, coffee, tea, milo). Nice hangout area where you can meet other travellers or watch a movie.

Nomads is a backpackers hostel above some ships in the Green Hill area. We stayed in a double room with A/C on the second floor. The rooms are plenty big enough and really clean but with only a tiny shower/WC room as opposed to a full ensuite, but not a problem.
One of the best things about Nomads is the co-owner Chris, he even looks the real deal with his Iban tribal tattoos, you couldn't meet a more friendly or helpful guy. He is full of into and will help with info on any trips etc your looking at taking without being like some hostels that are just after booking to get a commission! He even offered to come out and fetch us when we got stuck out at a nature park with no taxi. You'll often find him and his guitar next door but one at the bar having a beer with guests at night.
The hostel has free WiFi and toast and drinks available 24 hours per day. Overall the place is not a 5* place but it is clean, in the right place, definitely at the right price and has super friendly/helpful staff. I would have no problem recommending it to others if your in the area.
PS Hope your feeling better now Chris!

Room Tip: Dorms or doubles available, but double are cheap enough if you don't want to share.

This is more than just an inviting place to stay. There are dorms and rooms available.

Breakfast bread (toast), jams, coffee, tea, milo (for a chocolate drink) but what makes this place worth selecting for your stay in Kuching (Sarawak, Borneo) is the co-owner Chris and his side-kick Mr-T.

Enjoy cooking a meal from back home - they have a stove that will make that happen.

They will readily help you in planning you in planning your visit to the various National Parks, local and in the greater Kuching area attractions (the Sarawak museum complex, caves, local villages etc.)

I meet backpackers from various countries during my stay and student groups from Australia & New Zealnd who are in Sarawak to assist villagers in various tasks.

Rating: A+

Room Tip: Book ahead of time as this place, even in the off-season, can be full.
