Nomads Brisbane Hostel has everything a backpacker could want!

Nomads Brisbane Hostel (formerly Palace Backpackers Brisbane) is a heritage listed building found in the very centre of Brisbane city opposite Central Station, so everything is close by!

Nomads Brisbane has five floors offering a wide variety of rooms to appeal to everyone from the newly-arrived to the newly-wed, including shared dorm accommodation and private rooms. All rooms are secure using electronic keycards, and you can keep your valuables more secure with the supplied lockers (Bring your own padlocks). All the linen is also provided so there's no need to bring your sleeping bag!

Our 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!

If you're looking for work, go and have a chat to the onsite Job Club who can provide advice and help you to find work. Likewise, our friendly travel desk staff don't just know all the best places to visit in Queensland - they can give you advice about anywhere in Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific!

Underneath our Brisbane backpackers is the Down Under Bar is where you can go full on, flat out! Come on down to Brisbane's most famous backpacker bar where you can win great prizes, dance the night away: or even meet Mr/Mrs Right. If you're after something a little quieter then our Zi Bar does great food and coffee, with regular events to keep you entertained.
