If you’re looking for accommodation in Town of 1770 Agnes Water, Cool Bananas Backpacker’s Lodge is definitely the best hostel to stay in.
Town of 1770- Agnes Water is located in Queensland, Australia, just north of Bundaberg. The town is quite small but rather spread out, with a sandy beach, a few shops and one pub. It’s the last place on the East Coast that you can surf too.
The hostel is located a short walk across the road from the beach and has a hippy beach-shack sort of vibe. There are outdoor seating areas with canopies and lanterns, plus there are hammocks outside the dorm rooms.
The reception area has a large common room where people chill-out and watch a movie, plus there are computers at the back, although you do have to pay for the Internet.
The dorms are located in a separate bright blue building and you walk through the outdoor communal area to get to them.
There is a shared block of toilets and showers which can get a little crowded at times but generally not a problem. I stayed in an 8-bedroom dorm which was clean and large but did get rather hot and sticky at night because there was a ceiling fan but no air conditioning. On one night the hammocks really did come in handy because I slept outside.
The communal kitchen was spotless and sometimes there was a hostel meal in the evening for $6 AUD. One of the nights I was staying there they had a guy come to entertain us with circus equipment like a diabolo, pogo stick, coloured scarves and juggling balls. The hostel has a very laid-back style and it was really easy to meet other people, have a few beers and make friends. I loved this hostel, it was definitely cool bananas.
