  • We really enjoyed are stay at gilligans. We stayed here on are first stop of the east coast and didnt want to leave we stayed in a 8bed female dorm which was so clean and lovely and really like the way the toilet and shower where seprate the kitchen on the 2nd floor was so clean all the time. We also loved the food in gilligans and great price also and the nightlife in gilligans was amazing we didnt get board or didnt stay in during are time here great hostel guys :)

  • This is more like a hotel/ hostel. Everything is incredibly clean and renovated. Big rooms, kitchens and bathrooms. You actually don't here the downstairs area too bad either at night. It's not free dinner, you have to pay for a drink so it's like 5-7 dollars and it's not that much food, they have an option of paying 10 dollars for a drink and steak which is good value! (Not as good as the jacks tho that provides totally free dinner and wifi). Wifi costs, and is apparently poor in the rooms.
