Amazing hostel! Booked for 2 nights but ended up staying for 2 weeks. Friendly and helpful staff around all the time. The bar, hangout area and pool is a great spot to meet new people. I’m coming back in a month!

Was stopping by on a road trip for only a few days but couldn't help but stay a few weeks. The facilities are as good as you need and the people staying here are incredible. Always a new friend to make whenever you sit down...More

Hello Didine, my name is Jocelyn Vuletic, I am the owner of Cable Beach Backpackers. If possible, I would very much appreciate the opportunity to speak with you in regards to your review of our property and your experience while staying here. I'm a little confused by your comment of the free light breakfast; we only offer free breakfast between December and March, so I'm bewildered as to how you managed to review our 'free' breakfast? Also, we actually have 14 showers available on a shared basis, not two? Ten showers and ten toilets are housed and immediately available in the ladies and mens main bathrooms attached to our dorm building? We do not have a configuration offering only two showers on our property? As for the cockroaches and cleanliness. I can't promise you or anyone else that you won't run into a cockroach during your stay (this is the Kimberley after all; here you will encounter flies, ants, snakes and killer jellyfish too), however, we do our utmost to maintain our property and take cleaning very seriously. I am present on-site all day everyday and readily available to anyone and sincerely wish that you made contact with me or our staff before leaving so we could have the opportunity to make your stay better. I would like to invite you to make contact and I will then phone you perhaps?
