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...

Great little hostel. Beautiful location, 10 mins walk from the beach, palm trees, pool, hammocks, bar, its a little paradise. Nice clean kitchen, bathrooms & laundry. Rooms where basic, & without A/C. Great deals on drinks at the bar, pool tables, outdoor seating, free airport transfers. Would definitely stay again.

This is a fairly typical hostel. I stayed twice in the same month (before and after a tour) and in both cases I found my room, and the hostel in general, to be clean and in good condition. The staff are helpful. Free transport is available to the airport and at certain times to the town centre, also there is... More

Stayed in this hostel for 2 months. Nice vibe, friendly staff (Rachel was the best!!), affordable, heaps of hammocks everywhere and short walk to cable beach. I've stayed in 2 other hostels in Broome and they can't match the atmosphere. Nice social scene but lots of chill out areas if you want a quiet night. Hostel runs shuttles into town.... More

Myself and my partner stayed for a week. The rooms are basic with just beds but are clean and comfortable. They were cleaned daily along with the communal areas and kitchen and showers etc. The staff are polite, friendly and helpful. You're a 5 minute walk to cable beach and close to local shops and places to eat. There's a... More

Had such a great time in Broome, and the Cable Beach Backpackers! Great crowd, friendly staff and close to everything at the beach. Cheapest drinks in town! Everywhere else, beers were at least $3 more! I had a private double room, which was basic but fine for the amount of time I spent there (not much!). Air con, fan, bed...Don't... More

This Backpackers has a great location near Cable Beach Resort and the Beach. It is one of the cheapest rooms in Broome and has a good bar with cheap beer (especially during happy hour). The private double room was basic but clean and we were able to obtain an extra blanket and towels for a $10 deposit. There is also... More
