Nomad

A place to chill out with friends

What we say: 4 stars

Although Nomads is part of the Three House and Tracks group of hostels, it has a very different feel. Where Three House is homely, Nomads feels like a place you would come to chill out with friends. This is probably due to the fact that it's run by two very approachable Iban guys who have some really amazing body art. Definitely ask them about the Iban tattoo tradition and they will regale you with stories about theirs.

Pretty much the same thing is offered here as at Tracks and Three House, although there is a mixture of fan and air-con rooms here, and some private rooms come with private bathrooms. A light breakfast is included with the room rate, but greedy eaters will be pleased to know that some good hawker cafes are just around the corner. The communal areas all have TVs and a DVD player, with some guitars hanging up, which we presume are allowed to be played.

Although we didn't stay on a weekend, we did see some karaoke bars round the back of the building and suspect that this could get a little bit noisy around this time, so it may be worth asking to stay in one of the rooms higher up if you are a light sleeper, or bring ear plugs to be really safe.

Do note that Nomad, Three House and Tracks are all owned by the same people and as such, prices among the three are the same and if one place happens to be full, they will often put you in another.
