Gilligans is more like a club with beds so it's great if you like partying till early hours of the morning but if you don't it's quite noisy at night in the rooms. There's a nice pool and bar open all day and the food at night was nice, there's a great backpackers meal deal for $4 where you get a drink and meal and it's nice food. Some of the staff are a bit rude and not very helpful but the others help as much as they can. The tour desk people are very nice but don't always offer the best deals for trips so shop around! It's in a great location near the shopping centre, market and the lagoon which we really loved. We stayed in a 8 bed dorm and it was really clean and it had a shared bathroom between us which worked fine! Would recommend gilligans as we did have a good time!
