Almost perfect.
Was almost perfect aside from a manager named Sasha, who was very condescending and shrewd on multiple occasions. I understand people have bad days, but this should not be reflected upon customers especially when you are in a management position.

I had a private room. It was great for the price! Location was awesome... right downtown! Not too far from the train/bus station either. The front desk was open 24/7 and the people there were very friendly and helpful. It was a very nice atmosphere. The room was nice and clean. My shower wouldn't drain. I notified the front desk when I left in the morning and it was fixed by the time I got back. They provide a dinner voucher for the place next door. The food was great! Overall, great stay. Would definitely stay there again.

Average facilities, but can't beat $2 dinners
The hostel facilities themselves were fairly average, but I've been traveling around Asia, so my standards are probably a little high. The neighborhood was great, close to the harbor and all the sights. Loved Cuba street. Especially liked the free pancake mix and the free snack or $2 dinner every night at the hostel. Can't beat that. Wish the showers were in better condition. Tried two different showers over two different nights, and they both wouldn't drain, so had to shower in ankle-height dirty water, which ended.up overflowing into the rest of the bathroom.

Great location, affordable
I spent time at the YHA in Wellington in January and now spent a week at the Nomad in March. The Nomad was a good place to stay overall. In comparison to the YHA, I found the Nomad to be noisier, the kitchen facilities were half of the YHAs, and the fact that it was a dry hostel would make me think twice before staying there again. However, it's right off Cuba street, with great access to restaurants, shopping, transit, etc. The free "snack" each night was great - meant that I didn't need to cook as much. My room faced the street so it was often noisy overnight (due to the bar next door). The staff was really nice and very helpful - I got strep throat on the trip and they were great about directing me towards medical advice. It didn't appear that they'd tend to the room daily - which was fine for me, but might not be for others. Again, depending on my reasons for travel and who was with me, I would consider staying here again.
