NileGuide Expert tip:
The bar has some of the best drink specials in town.
Set on a quiet street, yet in the heart of the CBD,close to the Queen Vic Market, Nomads Industry is an ideal choice for budget travelers that would like a more comfortable stay than an average backpacker hostel. One of the new wave of "Flashpacker" hostels (meaning it has a four star rating), you'd be forgiven that this was a boutique hotel, such is the quality of the surrounds. Facilities include a comfy state-of-the-art cinema, roof top sun deck and a section of the property reserved for women only. The real highlight is the ground floor bar which is popular with locals. Its beer garden, plasma screens and nightly drink specials often bring in the locals.
