A great spot for surfing lessons just round the corner. Lockers in room. Fantastic ac common area with a free pool table. Ac room at night. Clean rooms and bathroom and kitchen. Wifi in the common area was frustrating as it kept disconnecting as people would watch movies.

Security was average. Not 24hr reception, so can just walk in and back to the rooms which had handles that seemed flimsy and didn't always lock fully it seemed. Location was fine for the small city and near the beach and the staff was welcoming and picked me up late even without request. Atmosphere was a bit quiet though perhaps that's the city. Mostly hostel workers really. Cleanliness was not great with the hostel worker leaving his suit in the shower, sand everywhere and mattresses stained.

Hi there, we don't have a 24hr reception just as any other hostel in this safe small and friendly town. Anyway to make our customers feel even safer we provide lookers in every room. It's unfortunate that you didn't enjoy our chilled atmosphere, we love the nature around us and we find it so relaxing! None of our staff sleep in the dorms as we have separate staff rooms, so whoever was in your room, was not a staff member. Cheers

Nice friendly homely hostel.. rooms were pretty basic but have lockers, quite hard sharing one toilet/shower with 10 people as well..

Beachside Backpackers is a good hostel with free simple breakfast, laundry, and standard facilities. The staff are also helpful. It's a bit run down and I had some issues getting into my room (which required me having to climb through a window), but aside from that it was fine. But if you want a nice hostel with a pool and good vibe, stay at Southern Cross.

Hey there! Thanks for commenting on our staff. They work hard to make our guests happy! We're working on changing our locks over at the moment and when it gets really hot the doors swell up, which sometimes make them hard to open. We also have a pool and we've got a pretty great vibe here as well. Happy travels, 1770 Beachside

I really enjoyed my short stay at beachside backpackers! Nice rooms with own bathroom, great kitchen area (good equipment like BBQ, sandwichtoaster, microwaves...) Free breakfast. This has been the best breakfast I have ever had in hostels in australia. (A great variety of bread (not just the cheapest white toast) also tea,coffee,jam, marmelades..) Close to the beach, own pool

Dear, We were happy to see that you thought so highly of our staff. We think they are pretty amazing too! However, it was unfortunate to hear that your time at Beachside 1770 was not up to par. If you're ever back in Agnes Waters again and give us another chance at Beachside 1770 again we would happily accept any direct reviews you can share with us so that we can work on making them better for you and our other guests. Cheers! Management

Staff were lovely, very friendly and willing to help. A nice relaxed hostel with free wifi and breakfast. Cleanliness could have been better.

Stayed here for four nights in a double room, which was spacious with a good ensuite and fairly clean. Only a 10/15min walk to the shops and supermarket and 5mins to the beach. On the other hand the kitchen was open sided and so quite dirty but you get what you pay for. The staff were a mixed bag, some didn't seemed interested in helping whereas two of the boys were really friendly and welcoming and more than made up for the other's lack of enthusiasm with their helpfulness and approachability.

Chilled hostel, good for a stop over. Beds a but dirty but clean sheets, lots of plug sockets too. Free toast and tea/coffee always a winner. Cheap surf lessons and close to beach. I would recommend for a short stay in 1770, if you don't mind a basic hostel!

Hey, We are happy to hear that you had a great time surfing. Being close to the beach has its advantages! Thanks for the recommendation. Cheers! Brittany

When you want to spent some relaxed days in Agnes Water, the Beachside Hostel offers you a quiet and lovely atmosphere. You reached the city in less than 10 minutes and the beautiful beach is just around the corner. The cheap price includes FREE breakfast till 10 am, FREE billiard, FREE working WIFI;) and a several selection of movies. They clean up the rooms each day and the kitching offers everything you need for cooking. All in all we have spent 3 very nice and relaxed days here.

We were very disappointed with the welcome we received . We were not offered any information about the facilities at the hostel and we had to ask a lot of questions to get any information about the area. There was no genuine interest from the female at reception in fact we were a nuisance it felt. So much so that we just left early in the morning to head to our next destination. The poorest service to date on our travels.

First of all there's not a lot to do in Agnes Water/1770 so the atmosphere was lacking to begin with but I found the place to be dead somewhat. Room smelt a bit funny, had safes but didn't work? No hot water in our room at all despite being "fixed". Freezing cold rooms at night. The place was relatively clean and close to the beach and a gold free shuttle from the greyhound but not a lot else!

Lovely helpful staff. Quiet hostel with clean comfortable beds. Near the beach and shuttle from the greyhound bus. Really enjoyed a relaxing stay here! Thanks
