Awesome Place to Stay”

Firstly the hostel was really clean. There was loads of space with a big outside area as well as an outside undercover area with large tables, couches and a TV. There are hammocks all over the hostel for you to chill out and relax in as well as a pool and pool chairs. Great kitchen with all your basic cooking essentials - pots, pans, cutlery etc. I met some great people, even though they had just re-opened for the season and it was pretty quiet but there was still a great vibe and atmosphere in the place. Really friendly staff on-site that were willing to help. No more than a 5 minute walk from the hostel to cable beach - there is also a great cafe and restaurant less than 3 minutes down the road! This is the second time I’ve been to Cable Beach Backpackers and will be back for sure!!

Good atmosphere”

bar kitchen location

we had a private double room which was basic but what we needed, when we arrived there was nobody to check us in for 2 hours so we left and went for a walk down the beach. The bar area was good had a great atmosphere and cheap drinks, the kitchen area was really big and well maintained. The showers could of been kept cleaner and the general area was a bit messy as people had left personal belongings everywhere.

the most horrendous place in all of Wa to stay... ”

My stay was awful. I arrived at broome having booked a pick up in advance. Guy did not turn up for a good hour, marched straight past me twice only to get back into his vehicle. When I ran and waved he finally took notice and rebuked me saying that people normally called and he had just driven past on the off chance. I arrived at the hostel with a double infection and in fact spent the following six nights in hospital on a drip 24/7. It was plain for everyone to see that I was extremely I'll. No one asked whether I was ok or whether they could help.quite on the contrary, all of the guys there are casual staff not one of whom have any decision making authority and none of them take ownership for any of their actions. The owners are off site and their one and only rule is grab the money and never let go of it again. Whilst one of their many, many signposts says No bad reviews on websites, you can talk to us there is in fact no one to talk to. In line with their no refund policy I did not get any of my money back despite very serious and unforseen illness. The reason given was they had lost money on my booking despite it being the busiest week in Broome,s calendar and there is no doubt in my mind they rented the bed within seconds.. Office hours of their reception are well publicised but not adhered to... Ah, they have just popped out... I was never able to buy even just one drink from them. Despite being quite some distance from the shops... Without a car you are snookered... They do not even have the most basic items for sale such as toothpastes or shampoo. Travelers, there are infinitely better places in broome that offer much more value for the same money. Places such as these should be closed down...

Close to the beach, and they offer a free shuttle

The hostel is average, you get what you pay for. Very annoying that AC was turned off at 6.50 am! and not back till 6 pm, made it impossible to rest.

離Cable Beach十幾分鐘路程,下午去沙灘睇日落係一個唔錯嘅選擇,好靚。 離Chinatown有啲距離,搭巴士十幾分鐘車程,僅接受現金,四蚊一程。 房間有分短期同長期,入住嘅係短期,房間乾淨,不過無空調,得兩風扇,其實已經足夠,因為呢個季節夜晚訓訓下會直接凍醒。 沖涼房、洗手間每日早上都會有人做清潔,廁紙、洗手液會及時補充,整體keep得ok,只係我好希望水龍頭出水力度可以大啲。至於晾衫嘅地方可以講係無嘅。 廚房用具需向前台工作人員借,冰箱都會有工作人員定期清走無貼標籤嘅物品,工作人員都會定時搞廚房衛生。 員工大部分都好nice,其中一個女生臭口臭面咁,借嘢還嘢嘅時候玩手機都唔理人,呃。
