What a fantastic place to stop in Agnes Waters! Had an excellent time staying here over the weekend while surfing at nearby beaches. Cool Bananas provide parking, linen for beds and are most importantly are in close proximity to the best surf beaches in Agnes Waters. The owners are both really great people who go above and beyond to ensure...

As campervanners, we haven't spent much of our time travelling, in hostels, as we usually spend our time in campsites. However we'd been recommended this one and the reviews online matched the recommendation, that the owners and the atmosphere were the most welcoming you could find, so we parked our van in the car park ($12.50 per person with use...

I stayed at Cool Bananas for more than a week and I had a really good time in the Hostel. They have a free breakfast consisting of white toast and spreads like jam or peanut butter and free black tea, instant coffee and milk. The kitchen was always clean and provides almost everything you need. They even offer a great...

Best hostel in 1770! The staff are so friendly, they all gave up their bed to house more people during cyclone Debbie. Great facilities and the kitchen is clean. Good location and the vibe is very good! The owner is an absolute legend and I would only stay at this place in 1770.

I had an amazing time ! The owners are so lovely and they love their job. 1770 is a small place , but just to visit this hostel was worth it , they offer so many private little tours and you'll love them. Not more to say ! I liked it :)

This hostel is exactly what you are looking for when you want to get away from the noise and party hostels and just have a relaxing time with nice people! They pick you up from the bus station, which was a good surprise to me, since I arrived on the 6am bus, and to top that off, they immediately gave...

First intended to stay here for 3 night but ended up staying for 4 weeks, working for accomodation. Cool bananas is more than a hostel to me, it became a home. And that's because of Linda and Cary, the owners, who took great care of me, letting me feel more than welcome. The crew was really friendly and helpful. The...
