The dorms here are quite good and have recently been renovated, that's only if you stay in one of the 8 bed cabins/villas that surround the pool. I was in one of the renovated dorms (Number 6) and couldn't complain, it was new, comfortable bunks, good aircon, clean showers etc. The cleaners don't do a great job, like some days they didn't empty the tiny bin in our room or sweep/mop the floors but they seemed to clean the showers as they were always spotless.
The kitchen has heaps of crockery, utensils, massive fridge etc. by the end of the day it's messy (what backpackers kitchen isn't?) but the cleaners clean it every morning.
The rooms are set back a bit off the street so it's a bit quieter. I met quite a few people who had moved to Nomad's after staying in other Airlie backpackers who had quite a few horror stories (noise, filfthy rooms, bed bugs) and they said Nomad's was the best in Airlie. I'd stay there again if ever in Airlie, as it seems to be the place to stay.
P.S. Only negative, internet is expensive, $1 per 15mins, minimum $5 purchase. Just head up 2 doors up the street to Travel Bugs where the internet is 1st 30mins free then $2p/hr after.
