    Superb

    18 Jun 2018
    I booked 4 nights here and ended up staying a week and a half in total. Best hostel I’ve stayed in yet. The staff are incredibly helpful, the facilities are brilliant. It’s right in the centre so only a short walk to the harbour. They have something going every night which makes it easy to meet people and keep entertained. Depending on the day, they also have stuff going on at the pool. There can be a bit of shouting in the halls due to the party, but earplugs do the trick.

    Very good and clean hostel, just sometimes the noise levels from the club are pretty high but you know there’s a club downstairs before you even stay there so it cannot he helped.

    Fabulous

    Gilligans doesn’t hide what it is: a party hostel. And for that it serves itself well. That being said, I’m disappointed I paid the $31 instead of $21 as I’m positive my room was equally as loud as nearly any of the $21 rooms. The entire “1” level should be $21 as it’s so close to the club anyway, and it’s a shared balcony with drunk 18 year old Brits frolicking about until 4am (2am is enough for this old man)

    Very Good

    I paid $15 for a 12 bed dorm and you get what you pay for. Overall I liked the hostel (be aware of that it's a party hostel. Could hear the music up to my room and the bed was shaking haha). The kitchen could have been better though. Only one stovetop and very few pots and pans and cutleries.
