We booked rooms in Nomads in December to arrive there in February. 3 days before we got there, we called them to check all was ok, only to be told there was no record of our booking, and unless we paid up front, they wouldn't take us in. This was a school trip, and we were in a real spot. Nomnads were totally unapologetic, and adopted a 'deal with it' sort of attitude. Fortunately, Gibela Backpackers down the road were fantastic, and really helped us out. Avoid Nomads, go with Gibela!
