Backpackers at 1770 is the best place to stay in Agnes Water without question. I met Oscar (the manager) through a mutual friend before coming to the area.

Best hostel I have stayed in, cleanest and best maintained kitchen of any hostel I've been to; the rooms are also kept very clean, and the friendliest staff I've met so far. There is cheap surfboard and bike hire which is great and close to the beach. Couldn't fault it in 6 days. And the WiFi is good as well....
