    Had a room for myself, because there weren't many people staying there. However my room smelled quite strange and mouldy. The staff is really really friendly though.

    I didn't know this was a YHA from the website. I thought I had booked into self contained appartments, of a higher standard, as this seemed to be indicated on the Agnes palms website.

    The hostel is the closest to the beach and really well organized! Rooms have their own (huge) bathroom and are very cute with paintings on the walls that make them very cozy and colorful. There is a huge lounge room with tv, Netflix and large sofas. The kitchen is well equipped, maybe a bit small. We went in winter so there were not that many people but I can imagine that in summertime it gets really crowded and festive, with lots of surfers (1770 is really a perl on the east cost, I would suggest everybody to stop there for a couple of days!).

    More in Agnes water than 1770, but the hostel provides a shuttle if you want to go for sunset. Stay here for surfing, a small town, quiet hostel, good break from busy travel

    We stayed in a family unit and it had everything we needed. Very comfortable and loved the view of the bush. So close to the beach through a short bush walk. I really liked the lady I the office, she was extremely helpful and pleasant. Thanks

    The room was lovely , it overlooked the bush and you could walk directly to the beach through a boardwalk access. Very peaceful. The shared kitchen facilities and common room were well appointed, great for backpackers.

    Customer Reviews on yha.com.au

    YHA believes that you should be given a true picture of what other guests have to say about our hostels. That's why when you make a booking on yha.com.au, you will be invited by email to rate your hostel stay upon checkout. These ratings are then published, unedited, whether you give the hostel a good or bad review. Average ratings are calculated based on the last 50 customer submissions.

    We review these ratings daily, and publish any comments, images and tips provided. We don't edit your comments and will publish them whether they are good or bad. However, there are a few instances where we will not publish the comments online:

    Inappropriate or offensive comments

    Any inappropriate and/or offensive comments won't be published.

    Inappropriate or offensive comments include, but are not limited to, personal harassment or discrediting of YHA staff, hate speech, sexually explicit language or swearing.

    Unsubstantiated or incorrect claims

    Hostels will have the right to have negative comments removed if they can prove that claims are unsubstantiated or incorrect. YHA Australia will investigate the claim prior to publishing online. Examples where we have not published a comment for this reason are mostly due to guests mixing up different hostels they had booked.

    Comments including staff names

    Reviews that feature full staff names will not be published, whether in relation to a positive or negative comment. First names of staff will be published in positive comments only.

    If a negative comment is made, all reference to a particular staff member will be removed.

    Changed circumstances in hostels

    If there have been any major changes such as hostel renovations, new management/owners, and we believe the previous ratings are no longer relevant, YHA will remove all submissions and the rating calculations will commence from zero.

    Please note: YHA Australia will not enter into correspondence with the reviewer whether a comment is suitable or not.
