Great location!Great location. Easy walk to shops, markets, restaurants. Very clean, good facilities, friendly helpful staff. The lifts were a little slow, the street noise unavoidable due to location. We received 50% discount vouchers for breakfast which was very good. Overall an excellent stay.

Location good close to shops and CBDThe 2 rooms were expensive at $2,000.00 for 7 nights. Main bedroom had no air conditioning or ceiling fan and became quite warm day and night, this would be very unpleasant in warmer weather [ we stayed in July]. Rooms were not as clean as one would have expected for this price and star rating. Cleaned ...

Disappointing (from a well travelled back packer)Unprofessional establishment "managed" by back packers. Facilities basic and often unclean. Taxes for transport, room, key, locker, utensils, washer, dryer, internet... Location great but don't know if good value for money.

Excellent location.Excellent location within easy walking distance to Esplanade, lagoon, restaurants, markets, and marina. Unfortunately the bedding and pillows were so bad we ended up sleeping on the floor and if you wait until night to have a shower there is no hot water. As the weather was so hot when we were there ...

Good location but a little run downGood location right next to the pier and shops. I was in an 8 share and while the sheets and beds were clean the walls were crumbling around the edges. There were also stairs leading up to the bathroom. This was not the best as with wet thongs you can easily slip. There were also not enough tiles ...

Not what I would have chosen for myselfGranted I was staying there with a group and my accommodations were payed for by them, however if I had had the choice I would not have stayed at Gilligan's. Nothing personal but a place like this is for teenagers and college aged backpackers. Not my cup of tea.. I would have loved it if I were still ...
