A gorgeous resort just outside Agnes Water. We had a great stay here for three nights. Easy trip into the town and beach but so peaceful in it's setting. Great friendly staff who will join guests for drinks every night. Would definitely recommend this as a base for surfing or for a chilled few days!

The hostel is set in gorgeous farm land with a pond, hammocks, trees, a slack line, a pool which makes for a very relaxing, peaceful stay. The staff are all super friendly and helpful (they even carried our back packs... More

Only stayed one night, wished it could have been longer. They have a great chilled out vibe, staff stuck around late for us to check in which was really nice. The property itself has lovely gardens which were well maintained. Room was very clean. Free breakfast was basic, just toast and spreads, but good for us and for the price... More

This place is true a amazingly chilled out hostel. Everyone is really friendly and laid back, the hostel and its grounds are a fantastic place. The only downside is the beds are the worst I've ever slept in! Other than that the owners are friendly and nice, free wifi is very handy to contact home, the bus from the priemer... More

Nice owners. The rooms were clean, bathroom shared with about 10 people. Great garden. Loved my stay here, stayed longer then planned. I guess that's a good sign. Cheap barbie's. Sitting by the campfire with a beer and someone playing the guitar, nothing more to wish for! I recommend to do Scootoroo and take a surflesson (if needed) for only... More

Stayed here recently just for one night. It had a cool laid back vibe. The staff were all travellers working their tourist visa. Rooms are 6 bed dorms with nice en suite with huge hot shower. There are no locks on the door which seemed weird at first and we nearly didn't stay here because of this reason but apparently... More

Only stayed here for 1 night. Lovely hostel. Pick up service from premier busstop is perfect. Can not expect less because I had to pay 30 dollars for return shuttle to the busstop. Free shuttle into town. The only problem is that you cannot do any laundry because of the fact that the only water used in the hostel is... More
