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


The staff were very friendly and the rooms were ensuite which was good. The cleanliness of the hostel was very poor and lacking atmosphere. There was nothing to do in the evenings and outdoor lights were off by 9/10pm. We were in bed by 11pm.

The staff really make this place! Got picked up by their bus when we got off the greyhound by Ray their bus driver who had great chat. Was then Greeted by the manager Julie and staff member Marco when we arrived and could not be made more welcome. Free toast and WiFi is really a bonus but it really is a home from home ... Really feels like you're saying goodbye to family when you leave :(


Really nice hostel for a short stay. Decent facilities in the common area. Rooms were fine, pretty standard, although beds not too comfy and very very squeeky!! One other down side was the tension between staff. Very inappropriate and unprofessional right in front of customers, all because they don't all seem to get on. That can really let down a business.


Mattresses were abysmal, could feel all the springs and really dirty. Nobody around and nothing to do. Laundry room largely unavailable due to staff cleaning duties.


Staff were excellent, very friendly and helpful. Free toast was nice too :) a nice place to stop over for a night or two


The staff was very very fiendly!! Lovely guys! But the kitchen is too small and so so dirty!! The free breakfast was okay! The rooms are big but the mattresses are terrible!! Good wifi in the near of the reception but no wifi in the rooms. It is very close to the beach!! But after two days you don't know what to do in this part of Agnes Water.

The staff really made this hostel! Could not have been more helpful. Everyone was really friendly, quiet, relaxed atmosphere. The hostel was well maintained & clean but would benefit from an update.


Helpful friendly staff, awesome atmosphere, great place to stay if you're going surfing. Kitchen was a bit untidy, beds need new mattresses and showers were a bit unreliable, but the good vibe and all the other good aspects made up for most of that. :)


Free WiFi works well but this was a very boring hostel in a very boring town when I visited on a Sunday night. Nothing to do in the evening, I went over to Cool Bananas to meet friends, it had way more people but still a dry atmosphere. I guess it's a fine place for a relaxing stopover. Couldn't use laundry facilities in the morning because the staff needed them.


Not a clean hostel, would not reccomend staying.


It was a perfect place to chill and do nothing. The staff was very friendly especially til and chris. They organized awesome tours to feed kangaroos and see the sunset in 1770 . Also there was free bread and free wifi. The atmosphere was great.
