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.

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

Our family of 4 stayed for 1 night at Cool Bananas. We loved the place, it was a very busy night with lots of people around, full occupancy. The friendly staff made us feel very welcome. The organized dinner was a plus as we did not have to cook that night and the food was delicious. Bathrooms were very clean.... More
