The common areas are social with a great vibe, plus a fire pit. Free WiFi, cheap surf board and bike hire. They are very helpful...

Backpackers at 1770 is the best place to stay in Agnes Water without question. I met Oscar (the manager) through a mutual friend before coming to the area. He immediately made me feel welcome and the environment at the hostel is laid back and fun all of the time. Agnes is a relaxing, beautiful little beach town great for anyone...

Best hostel I have stayed in, cleanest and best maintained kitchen of any hostel I've been to; the rooms are also kept very clean, and the friendliest staff I've met so far. There is cheap surfboard and bike hire which is great and close to the beach. Couldn't fault it in 6 days. And the WiFi is good as well....

Best Hostel I've been so far in Oz. Good vibes, friendly and awsome people. Everything is clean and well organised! Walk to the beach is about 5 min. Shops and everything you need around the corner. We had a lovely time there.
