Is a perfect place to chill out and rest when you come back of the adventures that Agnes has to offer you. Backpackers @ 1770 have a great structure, and they work every day to...

I stayed the last 16 days there and enjoyed every single day. It is a really nice place to relax and chill. Just takes you 5 min to walk to the beach. They have a really good kitchen with everything you need + freezer and a little oven. The Staff is awesome as well !! Best hostel I've been so...

I came here and booked 4 nights. The hostel is very clean and the staff was friendly and helpful. You can play drinking games or just chill out. I like how they have different common areas to chill and hang out. The fire pit is the best! Duke is the most precious one and the secret boss of the hostel....

Its a lovely hostel, and the owner really tries to do his best on giving the hostel the best experience. He is very friendly, which to me makes a huge difference on how much i like a place. Also, something that many hostels have yet to figure out, which im surprised, is that they have a pet!

I have mixed feelings about our stay here at Backpackers @ 1770. We arrived via Greyhound bus at 6:15am, and were picked up by a shuttle (even though the hostel really is only a 3 min walk away) so I thought that was a lovely extra touch. My friend and I had reserved a private double room, so I waited...

My stay at Backpackers @ 1770 in Agnes Water was a very good one. They have a very hippie/surfer vibe, super relaxed. On the plus side, the personnel was very helpful with organizing my activities and giving me info on this small city. They offer a sunset tour for 5$ which was very nice. The 10-12 places female dorm was...
