    Best backpackers I've stayed at in a long time. Staff were helpful and friendly. Cheapest 4 dorm rooms in Broome. Owners have made a great atmosphere, never a dull moment. Monthly party put on with cheep drinks really kept the wallet full.

    Questions & Answers
    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?
