Reception is shut from 1pm-4pm daily, which I must have overlooked when booking. The double room is basic; bed, chair, side table, fan and timered A/C (comes on in the evening). The bar/living area, pool and kitchen are reasonably well maintained. The toilets and showers weren't the best and a little dirty but not bad by backpacker standards. PROS: Bus... More

Where to start about this place! It is by far the best hostel i've stayed in during my 2 years of travelling. I stayed here 5 months and never felt once like leaving during my time in Broome/Cable Beach, even as a worker who had the most horrendous hours. It was like staying in one big family home. Short termers... More

Here is a list of reasons to stay here instead of the other options in town: - It's good value - Great chilled vibe - The staff genuinely give a s**t about you while remaining diligent and professional with the bits that need attention. Long story short... I went out in the bush with some locals for about 11 days... More

It was an amazing place. We were there for about a week and everyone was so nice and helpful! Cable beach backpackers provide a free shuttle to and from town a couple of times a day, which is nice but if you happen to not catch the shuttle the bus stops right outside of the backpackers and it is only,...

The atmosphere was very good, and the staff very friendly and helpful ! The wifi was functioning very well, also. But the shared showers/toilets were not so clean, and the location is good if you want to go to Cable Beach, otherwise it is quite far from the center. I still had great time there.

The hostel has a great vibe, the staff is the best and of course the location isn't bad either! The rooms are large and clean. The rooms are... More

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
