Gilligans is a partying backpacker hostel. The room we were in was near the bar, could here music until around 5am but with earplugs i managed to get a sleep. Some of the dorms have people having big parties, luckily that didn't happen in ours. You get 1 free hour of internet and a free small meal at dinner which is good. The bar also has decent promos on offer. The swimming pool was always busy. This is a great hostel if you want to meet new people and party, you dont get much sleep if you need it! The staff are either helpful or flirty which can be slightly annoying however little interaction with them and you'll have an ok stay. The washing facilities need to be updated for the size of this hostel, machines kept breaking down. Great location for Cairns.
