"Stayed in a King Hotel room and it definitely did not disappoint. The room is extremely spacious and clean. The bathroom is huge as well and there is just so much space all around. However, do take note that there are no bathroom amenities (since it is still a backpackers after all) so do bring your own soap and shampoo. There is a misconception that it would be noisy since it is a party hostel but it is super peaceful and quiet on the 4th floor and I had a great night sleep every night! The location is fantastic and there are travel desks all prepared to help you with affordable tours right at the ground floor which is very convenient. Thumbs up for all the staff! We had a problem with the safe-box, called reception and help arrived in less than 2 minutes. Loved the huge kitchen and lounge area (Gilligans generous with space!).
You could also leave your bags in the storage before check-in and after check-out. However, the downside is that staff do not check your luggage tag slip to ensure that you are collecting the right bags. Gilligans is a wonderful place to spend your nights at to complete your Cairns adventure!"
