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,...

I checked in at 2pm and my private room was not cleaned. Dirty sheets and rubbish left in room. Bathrooms were filthy, one seemed as if it was under renovation with skum left in toilet, shower and bath. Reception staff were cold and never smiled or said please or thank you at any stage. Reception unattended for long periods of... More

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

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
