The backpackers is basic, however caters for all you're needs - saying this, it is very clean &... More

Nice hostel, friendly staff, chilled out atmosphere and good communal areas (kitchen, large lounge, ouside seating + hammocks). We also had the meal on offer the evening we stayed (chilli with nachos $7pp) and it was great value for money.

They have everything you need in a hostel. A lot of information for excursions and day trips. You can walk to the beach and the rooms are spotless. Definitely recommend Agnes Water was the best surprise of my trip.

Had a great stay here. The hostel is right near the shops and the beach. The rooms and spacious and the beds comfortable. There are no locks on the doors which feels a bit strange but it's an Australian thing...most never bother to lock their houses!! The kitchen is big enough and very clean! The owner is a bit military... More
