From our guests

“Best hostel in Australia”

Stayed July 2014

"Stayed in is many places up the coast, most of them more expensive than Gilligan's, I.e. Nomads etc and none of them come close to this place. Yeah you pay a little more than other places in Cairns but you get what you pay for, massive clean rooms, free meals, cheap drinks and the friendliest staff I have encountered anywhere in Australia (customer service does not seem to be high on the agenda most places in Oz). All in all recommend anyone to stay here and don't understand any bad reviews about the place."

GILLIGAN’S BACKPACKER HOSTEL

Gilligan’s is Australia’s ultimate experience in budget backpacker hostel accommodation. Centrally located in the heart of Cairns, Gilligan’s is right next door to Rustys Market surrounded by various boutique shops, cafés and clubs.

Aside from offering traditional dorm style, air-conditioned, en-suite accommodation Gilligan’s also has deluxe dorms plus stylish twins & doubles located on levels three and four to ensure a quieter nights sleep. All room types at Gilligan’s have private en-suite bathroom facilities, pure luxury in a backpackers resort!

Gilligan’s offers awesome facilities & services for everyone’s enjoyment. These include free airport pickup, 24 check-in, cheap Wi- Fi, Workers Wanted Job Club, 4 quality kitchens and a massive pristine lagoon swimming pool, where you can take a dip or simply relax and enjoy a refreshing beverage from the Deck Bar.

Stay Gilligan’s and save money as we provide a free evening meal with any drink purchase every night plus all guests receive VIP pricing throughout our entertainment venues which are located right next door so there is no taxi fare to get home. Gilligan’s entertainment has crazy themed nights, fun & games and there are plenty of trips and giveaways to be won.

Gilligan’s is the perfect base for any traveller wanting to explore the many natural wonders of Cairns and the surrounding regions including The Great Barrier Reef.
