Really nice hostel but the owners are killing it there so rude. Me and my two friends arrived after a 6 hours bus journey, we were greeted by the man who I think is the owner. He was so rude to me and my friends all because he messed up our booking. The way he spoke to us I was... More

The place is clean they clean like 4 times a day which is uneccessary specially when you want to use the kitchen or communal area. Rooms had... More

The hostel is very clean but any chance of atmosphere or fun is ruined by the grumpy aggresive unattentive rude (to both patrons and staff) hostel owners. The woman cares more about her 2 dogs than paying guests. Scandalous. DON'T STAY HERE IF YOU WANT ANY FUN

I just want to tell you how rude the boss is! Dont go there... Actually the hostel is not too bad, but I would never stay there again. We left this place and went to normads southern cross and it was way better (friendly stuff!! Nice pool, good rooms, big area and its not so expensive!!). Cheers Ben

We only came to Agnes Water because everyone recommended this hostel and it really was a great one! Extremely clean and the owner was very nice and helpful. Seating area outside is nice & cosy and you get picked up & dropped of at the greyhound station.

This is ranked as one of the best hostels of my world trip and thats despite being in an 8 person dorm. A few things set this hostel apart from the others cleanliness, free wifi that works, set up of kitchen and eating area and a great atmosphere. I wish I could have stayed here longer!

Really well kept hostel, very mellow place to stay and catch up on some rest, was a decent goon detox. Serious about cleanliness woke up at 2am to take a leak and there was a staff member in the toilets cleaning. The owner is pretty helpful as well as long as your not a complete dullard!

The hostel itself is great, rooms very spacious, bathroom has everything you need and all the facilities are kept clean and tidy. Kept clean because the owner has some kind of OCD. People can stay there for free if they do certain duties, but it seemed to me like the people that were worked there were like the boss's (Greg)... More

My friend and I truly loved our 3 night stay at cool bananas. It's the cleanest hostel you will ever stay in, literally spotless and the staff work so hard to keep it that way. It has a very homely welcoming feeling, free tea and coffee and wifi. A big sitting room with lovely comfy sofas, lovely outdoor sitting areas... More

We arrived early in the morning, a guy picked us up from the bus station which was a great service! But as soon as we arrived at cool bananas the owner of the hostel was the most unfriendly host I have ever met during my travels! He was very short answering questions if he already took the time to answer... More
