Hands down, this is the best hostel I've stayed in so far! If you are looking for a space to chill out & feel at home (while still being in paradise) then you've found it.

For sure the best hostel in Agnes Water! Chill vibe, nice staff, clean facilities and a cute dog! The hostel is located really close to the beach and the shops. Loved the chill campfires in the evenings and inexpensive dinners that even had veggie options as well! Already been there twice and would love to stay a third time!

I came here and booked 4 nights. The hostel is very clean and the staff was friendly and helpful. You can play drinking games or just chill out. I like how they have different common areas to chill and hang out. The fire pit is the best! Duke is the most precious one and the secret boss of the hostel....
