Liked the location which suited me , close to central station. I used nomads for 3-4 months in between going back to Melbourne and Sunshine Coast to visit my terminally ill brother on Sunshine Coast . I regularly purchased single room or 4 bed dorm night by night so I must have spent thousands there . After first few weeks I asked staff if I could leave my big bag there as I will be back next day which was fine . I regularly extended in the morning if I knew I was staying in Brisbane that day or I checked out if there was a chance of me being called up to Sunshine Coast . Often I would hang out in common rooms like many others who had checked out and awaiting transport etc etc . I would often rebook late in evening , either coming back from coast or if in brissy . The regular night shift guy was very pleasant to deal with and knew my booking would always come through if he seen me there . The last time I stayed there I checked out ad usual and was in and out of common room through out day . I didn’t end up making a booking that night as I was told about a 24 hour Internet cafe so I decided to work there for the night . I had to come back to my bag after midnight to get a SIM card , which took 2 mins then I left . Seems a couple of the ani Australian staff members didn’t like this and felt need to get me banned by the manager . I was not told , back on sunny coast a couple days and rebooked and found out trying to check in . Spent 4 k at that place - lovely
