This is hostel accommodation so you will be staying in a dorm room that has an en-suite bathroom, and we have communal areas for everyone to enjoy! There is a living room area with a TV, big kitchen with seating areas, picnic bench area and a fire pit. It is a fun hostel where all staff take part in a wide range of activities, whether its going for a group surf, four-wheel driving, hiking, fire spinning on the beach or just hanging out having drinks; there will always be something for everyone. Its a sociable hostel so we encourage all staff and guests to interact!

Run by Oscar and Jazz with their side-kick pet dog Duke, Backpackers is a family owned business, which was bought in August 2015. There are three owners, Oscar and his parents Paul and Sharon. Oscar and his family have each had an extensive experience in travelling and still hold this passion. Since owning the hostel they have recreated the space and are still developing areas to complete their vision. Their vision is to have a hostel that has a chilled vibe, with artwork, eco-projects and the look of a bohemian travelling hostel. With their experience in travelling and passion for the environment, they have applied this in how they've created the hostel; they want to make it to feel like home for backpackers and give them a memorable travelling experience.

1770 Backpackers surely did become my home away from home. It’s an amazing place, where I met new friends from all over the world.
The housekeeping was very manageable and exactly as agreed. Plenty of time to explore the area or just chill after work hours.
I really can’t recommend this experience enough!!☀️

Backpackers 1770 is an amazing place!! This was my first experience doing work for accommodation and im so glad it was here, the managers/owner are great and the work itself is done as a team and super manageable. The best atmosphere and place, can’t recommend it enough!

Had the best time at 1770 backpackers- it really is a very special place where I met the most amazing people and made the best memories. Definitely a new home away from home that I will come back to in the future! The work is fair and exactly what’s agreed and the bike and surfboard use for free was also great! Could not recommend more- miss it already🫶🏻💓

All I have to say is it’s absolutely amazing. I planned on coming for two weeks and keep extending my stay because of how great the vibes are here. The people are absolutely amazing. I just feel like I could settle down here for a long time.
