Liked: Best backpackers ever! Spent a couple of nights here initially and loved the chill vibe, then ended up coming back and living here for over 3 months. Stayed from the reasonably quiet wet season to the busier dry season, staff are friendly and get to know you quickly. Relaxed atmosphere but can be party too. Small enough you can get to know people reasonably easily. Great location right near cable beach, with pool and hammocks to chill too.

Disliked: Sometimes could be cleaner, mostly just bathrooms but staff made effort to get things sorted ASAP if you told them.

Liked: It had a swimming pool.

Disliked: Kitchen was putrid, unclean and would not pass Health inspection legislation.Kitchen closed 9pm to 6.30am so could not get our milk, tea,coffee,food, etc. at night.. Fridges were choked up with bags wihout names and there was no freezer. Only 2 Urinals. 1 was blocked and leaking on bathroom floor. The other was full of urine and stank. Dormitories had concrete floors with nowhere to put your belongings except leaving them on the floor. The bar stayed open late and the noise kept us awake until midnight.The reception was frequently closed because the receptionist had to drive dive the bus as well. The eating areas were outside and there were mice. birds and possums eating off the tables.

Hi Giorgio, Wow, we're not sure what went wrong here:-( Our kitchen is cleaned everyday and reception staff tend to general cleaning of the kitchen with each shift change. Cleanliness is extremely important to us. We can only apologise for your experience and sincerely wish you safe happy travels for the rest of your trip!

hi Susie,thank you for your review. You're right, February is definitely not our busy period! We are about a 7 minute drive from the airport, and we run shuttles to town regularly (during February, they don't run as often) and we have a town bus stop right out the front that runs hourly. Unfortunately, with one nights stay you may not have been able to take advantage of those. You must have loved and appreciated how close to beautiful Cable Beach we are though! We hope we see you again soon!

Liked: The tropical feel, the place is filled with palm trees! We had a double private room one night for $75 which was good for Broome prices. And it's a very short walk to the beach with a bus stop out front for trips into town.

Disliked: Every time we needed to speak to reception (to check in, check out, buy drinks) there was a long queue as there was only one person on duty at a time. The facilities were all a bit worn out and old.
