got more in touch what NOT allowed to do than else

Partyhotel, sehr gute Inklusivleistungen (Abendessen), Lage

obviously Gilligans is one of the most famous places to stay in Cairns. In fact it is quite modern facility and almost everything is clean. Kitchen are one of the most perfect ones have ever seen in hostels worldwide. what is much more annoying is security in place about 20 or 30 People even in the Disco. They have really great drinking (and eating) offers but than they complain about People getting drunk at all. like everywhere in Australia you got more in touch with regulations what you are not allowed to do (and have to pay as well of course) than about Information what you can enjoy while on Holidays. quite hard stuff - also they have no control about People coming into the hostel during the stay even they do not stay there. The travel Agent in the Lobby has not fulfilled my expectations - just to earn the Money.

I stayed in a 6 dorm deluxe room and it's the best backpackers I've stayed at. Rooms were extremely comfortable size, had a tv, fridge, balcony, seperate toilet and shower. Was very impressed by the room. Centrally located to all nightlife, wharf, restaurants and shops. Great facilities within the hostel and great for those chasing the nightlife. My room faced the street and didn't have trouble sleeping the night I didn't have a late one. Would definitely come back and stay again!
