The crew of Backpackers @ 1770

Meet the weirdos behind our hostel

The (hard-)core team


- The Chief -

Oscar owns and runs the place. He has never been seen wearing a tux.


- The Turtle -

Fredie actually runs the place. She loves PiƱa coladas and getting caught in the rain.


- The Duke -

Duke is our loyal companion, mascot and an occasional yet experienced surfer.

The extended team & Workaway

We are always looking for like-minded people who are interested in the environment, have a sense of adventure and take pride in their work and want to be part of our family!

Come join us working 2 hours per day for accommodation, free use of laundry facilities, surfboard and bike hire, free surf lessons, sunset tours plus discounts on tours in Agnes!
