I've been staying here for a month now and I absolutely love it, I've been having such a good time, everyone is so friendly. When I arrived I didn't know anyone but within a couple of hours I was down the beach with a big group of people playing soccer and having a few drinks and it's only gotten better... More

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 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
