To be honest, it is one of the best backpacker hostels I have been to. The rooms are clean, the staff is friendly and the atmosphere downstairs at the bar is excellent.
Correctly it won a lot of prices and I think it will win some more.
I stayed at the Gilligans Backpackers for a few weeks and I can give everyone a guarantee, that you will enjoy your time there. You have everything you need, the pool, the lagoon close to the hostel, a good nightlife around you and a good sleep. The king size single beds are really good :)
You can come alone or with other friends and you will meet a lot of new people and new friends as well.
I came here and I found really good friends.
especially Bobby, the friendly receptionist is one of my best friends here. He always is honest and a really good guy.
His job means a lot to him and he always tries his best. Actually he likes his work and you can see that. A smile to everyone and being friendly are his trademarks.
But everyone who is working there is friendly and helps if you need some help.
So enjoy your stay there, have a good time and you will see it is definetly worth it.
