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

Don't go there if you are looking for a 5 star resort. But if you're looking for a place to chill and have a nice time at night then i can't think of a better place. Nice pool, nice area to hang out, friendly staff, good bar, pooltable, tv... What more do you want?!

The staff are friendly and welcoming. The rooms are adequate, but not particularly clean. The whole hostel has a slight used and worn appearance. The location is good, with the beach being a short walk away.

Room is very basic: only beds, nothing else. Cleaning is not so good and bathrooms were definitely not cleaned at all. The pool is nice and much appreciated! Place and staff are nice too. Breakfast is included but it's very poor. Good for short stay, not more

I stayed in a private room with air con. The room was a fair size anlthough, I really only spent time in my room to sleep. The bar on site was fun as were the people hangng out. Sure the amenities were basic but really, what do you expect. I look forward to coming back again in June!

I arrived from a late flight in the dark, the staff were helpful and I got me checked in within a few minutes. The single room was basic by all means, however the floors had not been vacuumed for a long time and were full of sand and dirt, so I could not take my shoes off. The bed had... More
