I didnt stay at shennanigans but went and got very drunk there a few times, its a really good pub with a quality atmoshphere and beer garden. I sopose there could be a problem with it being noisy of a night if youre a light sleeper, as i think its above the pub or next to it.

I've been recommended to go to Gilligan's so booked my dorm 4 weeks ago there for when I go in Sept, you should check out their website!

Yeh Gilligans looks the best, buuuuuuuuut unfortunately its booked for Oct when we are gettin there soooooo...well at least for twin rooms which is what we are lookin for to start off with. Too bad, but whats a guy to do. So anyways thats why i am lookin for a cool fun clean place to stay when we arrive. Any more suggestions or help would be greatly appretiated.

Erm.....Calypso's is supposed to be nice too, their website looks good also, but they are a taxi ride from the town centre. Most of the hostels are so I understand, if you've got a budget to play with I'd recommend going here. Otherwise check out www.hostelz.com, or www.bugaustralia.com for some reviews nearer the action. Never been in a dorm of people before or travelled so I'm taking a massive step! Might even join you at calypso's if it doesn't go to plan! Speak soon. Manda x
