I was asked by _______ _______ to give you an update on Giant's Hut.
About 4 weeks ago the roofing tiles were ripped off during excessively high winds.
Currently , and in the for seeable future Giant's Hut will not be habiitable.
To adjust for this I have just flipped my hike backward - going up Jarding Pass down Giants with Jarding Cave and Giants Cave as overnight spots. If it doesn't have a roof it won't be great if the forecast of rain is right...

The hut burnt down years ago. The roof was rebuilt by a combined effort of a few hiking clubs, but the roof was re-removed by a strong wind. I haven't heard of any new developments since.
Perhaps in winter the walls would make a useful wind shield, but with bits of loose roof I wouldn't camp within 200m of it.
I don't rate its a particularly useful hut - unless you are climbing the cliffs, its far from the nearest pass - and Giant's Pass has at least 5 usable caves half way up, and a small cave at the top.
