Firstly me and my partner are not picky people we understand you get what you pay for and we hardly expect luxury in a hostel but this place was horrendous. Anyone thinking of stopping in Agnes Water just don't bother, there's nothing there and everything shuts at 8pm except the Tavern which was quite nice. We paid for a private... More

Kitchen shut and then not open until 8 annoying as we had to leave... More

Nice, cheap place to stay in Agnes water. Close to the beach and the supermarket. Very friendly staff, free pickup from the bus station and free WiFi. Only thing was that there was only one power source in the room. Nevertheless a great hostel!

This hostel is a good hostel! The second service is so good! They pick you from the bus stop, while its just 5 minutes walking. Free wifi everyday! Free laundry! And sometimes free bbq and more things like that. You can party as long as you want. The eating/drinking place is far away enough from the rooms, so the noise... More

We had a nice chilled out stay here for 2 nights. Staff were friendly and helpful. Rooms were comfortable but could get hot at night if door of room wasn't left open. Free wifi, free washing, communal areas and kitchen were all great additions and made this a really nice chilled out stay. Would definitely stay here again. Air con... More

we stayed here for a couple of nights whilst breaking up the journey from Hervey Bay to Airlie Beach and it was a nice little stop off. The greyhounds dropped us off and the next road down was our hostel, it was really close to some small shops and a local supermarket and very close to the main beach. The... More

Just stayed here for one night but did really like the hostel. It was clean overall and had a chill out atmosphere. The staff was kind and helpful. You also get free wifi and the washing machine is also free to use.

Being here gets you in the right mood, Aussie mood. Service is very good, the staff is there for you in any ways. Lounge is great compared to many other hostels on the east coast. Price is right and they do whatever to make your stay good. Kitchen is big enough, and works good. Not the very best, but I... More
