    See Pros and Cons”

    Pros: Really nice vibe (playing games, bonfire), clean, hammocks, amazing staff Cons: no reception, Wifi only limited to lounge area and no wifi btw 6-8 pm for family time (good idea but its the time you wanna call home etc), 15 min walk to beach, 10 min to supermarket, no free bike hire, only one outlet in 8 bed dorm

    Hi Sofia, thanks so much for your review, we are so pleased you enjoyed our atmosphere, activities and all the wonderful things Cool Bananas and Agnes Water has to offer. In regards to our service, do you mean telephone service? There is great service for all Optus and Telstra customers unfortunately we cannot change what the phone companies provide. Free WiFi works best in common areas but also in our bottom courtyard and a bit in our top courtyard. It is only a 5 minute walk to the beach and even less to the supermarket. Our dorms all have 2 wall outlets in them all of which have an ADDITIONAL 4 outlets which seems to suffice even during busy times. We are sorry you were unable to find them. May we recommend you speaking with reception about any of these issues as usually they can be rectified on the spot. Thank you so much for staying with us and we really wish you the best for future travels and wonderful experiences. Linda and Cary

    Best hostel I've stayed”

    Love everything about the hostel. There's pickup from the bus drop-off point and also someone will accompany to the bus stop even if it's 6am in the morning. Love their $7 dinner, cheapest meal I have had in aussie. The staff were also friendly. There's a huge and cosy lounge that most will chill there to use the public wifi. It's a lot cosier and larger than otherS. You just got to stay there and experience it yourself.

    Really nice hostel but the manager was rude.”

    Really good cook every night selling cheap meals, really nice guy.

    We really liked the hostel and the facilities. The lounge area was really comfy and you could relax and watch a selection of DVDs. The bathrooms were really good and cleaned everyday. The hostel was really clean and well maintained the only downside was the manager, he was really rude and shouted all the time. We constantly heard and saw him shouting and arguing with his staff and while we were there we saw 2 girls quit and walk out crying. Two other female staff were screaming and hitting each other and he done nothing to stop it, just shouted at both of them in front of all the guests.

We pride ourselves on making our guests and staff feel welcome and a part of our family from the moment they arrive. If you ever get a chance to come back to Agnes Water, we invite you to visit us again under new management. All the best for you wherever you are in the world right now. Linda and Cary
