    A great hostel with lots of large open spaces to spread out in. Hammocks, were great. Nice pool and very large kitchen, also large free carpark for off-road parking. Staff are really friendly and helpful. A really chill vibe and people.

    It's a really nice hostel with good value for money. Very nice people and fun activities. Super close to Cable Beach but quite far from the next supermarkets so recommend hiring a car or scooter.

    Good hostel, nice location, great vibes, nice staff, clean facilities. Swimming pool and hammocks are lovely. Could use some more power sources (only 2 in a 4-bed dorm) and security is not ideal (roommates didn't lock the rooms and the premises are not locked).

    Good social hostel but a few little details let this place down . No filtered water so have to use tap water which is normally warm and having to basically lend every pot and pan you use but atleast this keeps the kitchen clean .

    Pros- Great atmosphere, clean pool, nice staff, airconned room was a great escape from the heat, clean facilities Cons- The only hostel I've ever been to that you have to make your own beds up, barely any working powerpoints, WIFI doesn't work as too many people logged in constantly, wasn't any cold water in the taps for a shower

    Lovely helpful staff but many of the residents are long term and this creates a cliquey atmosphere rather than an open inclusive one. I am obviously older than the usual backpacker which I guess also contributes. Double room so so basic with just a bed, a chair and two bedside tables with no lamps. Bathrooms and kitchen OK and the whole place pretty clean. Could do with more lights on the way in as NONE of them are working.

    Staff just takes money from credit cards!!!! Worst staff ever!!! I got charged for more nights than I actually stayed at Cable Beach Backpackers. After multiple discussions with the Manager (woman with brown hair), she agreed to pay back the money. Of course Ive never received the refund. After calling multiple times Ive only been told the same thing over and over again "I will do your refund tomorrow".No response to any of my Emails. Stop putting peoples money in your pockets.You have enough!
