    I'm not much of a partier, so I found Gilligan's a good place to visit while staying elsewhere. We got vouchers for free meals, but found out upon arrival that there were only two choices, and both tasted like elementary school cafeteria food. The ambience is good, though: much like a nightclub, with an outdoor area consisting of a large bar, community tables, and even a stage for live music. I had a good time hanging out here with some roommates from another hostel, but wouldn't want to stay here overnight.

    This place is more like a resort than a hostel. There are spacious balconies in the dorms, pristine kitchens, and an awesome nightclub that is unlike any hostel bar I've ever seen (think sexy theme parties and hot DJ's). The lagoons pool, man-made sand beach, and waterfall outside help to add to the ambiance.
