Despite the fact that I did not match the average age or major target group, I enjoyed my stay at Cable Beach Backpackers very much: Relaxed atmosphere, fun party hot spot with excellent music mix, good facilities, close to awesome Cable Beach. The hostel is a far cry from town centre, but free shuttle services are provided twice a day.... More

Double room was basic but nice enough. Staff were friendly. Pool and trees nice. Close to Cable Beach. Bed was so squeaky I couldn't move without waking the place (fixed by some oil in my car). No room cleaning during a 6 day stay. WiFi not working for the stay ("it's provided by another company so nothing we can do",... More

Mrs Davis has nothing but the most fond memories of this place. Following an awful car crash I had, this hostel was a haven for the month I stayed here. I found it clean and friendly. The rooms were all basic but completely fine. The pool was a huge bonus, surrounded by comfortable seats and hammocks! Mrs Davis is partial... More

I stayed in a private double room at this backpackers and loved it. The staff was friendly and the other guests were super chill. I went during the hot season, so the pool was a huge positive as well! It is also walking distance to the famous cable beach and a nice yoga studio. The backpackers will also put on... More

It's a backpackers so what are you going to expect. The staff were lovely, I was picked up quickly from the airport and checked in to my room with no issues. I had a double room with air-conditioning, although the aircon switches off at 9am it not a problem, who wants to stay in their room all day while on... More

Cable beach backpackers is one of the only backpackers in cable beach (as far as I know). It's got a very good location since it is close to cable beach, which is one of the most beautiful and warm beaches I've even been to. It is not really close to the town center, there is a bus stop right outside... More

If you want to have a good time, relax and meet the friendliest staff of your backpacking life, come to Cable Beach Backpackers (big shout out to Wardy & Rachel)! I moved here from a nearby hostel in Broome & was sceptical at first but ended up wishing I stayed here longer! Rooms are basic but you need nothing more... More

Had a nice relaxing stay here. Good pool and bar and a friendly and social place. Something to stress, if you want five star luxury then you are at the wrong place, however luxury hotels cost $300 a night or more in Broome, this nice basic little backpackers did exactly what it said on the tin, basic dorms or rooms...
