Attractions near Nomads Auckland
This hostel is just off the central strip of Queen Street which means you’re a convenient and easy stroll from the city’s best attractions. After some shopping on Queen Street, check out the impressive views from the staggeringly tall Sky Tower. Dare to do a SkyJump – an exhilarating plunge 192 metres from the top of the tower.
Your accommodation is also close to Viaduct Harbour, which is the main ferry hub for boats sailing all around the Hauraki Gulf. Hop on a ferry to historic Devonport, just a 10-minute ride away. Or take a longer trip to Waiheke Island where sandy beaches, breweries and a laid-back atmosphere make a 40-minute ferry trip well worth it.
Unite at Fort Street Union
An important part of any hostel is the on-site bar. With the hip offering of Fort Street Union in your building, you won’t have to wander far to have a drink with your newfound friends.
The greenhouse-cum-warehouse vibe of this chic inner-city bar is far from your usual hostel watering hole. Delicious pub grub is served at lunch and dinner, including a tempting dessert menu. The best part is realising you’ve only got to navigate a few flights of stairs to be in your own bed after a few hours of living it up.
