Great location can easy walk to beach. Hostel has lots of space for everyone. If you wanted to read or have some quiet time, you can find a quiet spot in a hammok under a tree. Hammoks everywhere was really nice and added to the relaxed feel to the place (hard to describe). Really friendly staff too and cleaning was very good. I would definately come back or recommend you stay there.

Ok if you need a cheap bed for the night.

I opted for a room, but it was really just a dorm with four beds. No chair or table in the room. Free Wi-Fi was very intermittent, did not work from the room. That said, staff were great, and their friendliness permeated throughout the facility. Other guests were friendly as well. I doubt I would stay at another backpackers again, because there was nothing inviting about the room. Great atmosphere though, with a bar on premises.

Close to beach and bus stop into town.

Pros: Only really good thing was is closeness to beach and bus stop.
Cons: Would certainly suggest some new mattress as we felt every spring in the one we had.
Location: Can walk to cable beach, have a drink or meal on the beach, camell walk etc etc.
as the office is not maned all day they requested you phone in advance with your arrival time. This I did but when we arrived we found that no one would be in the office for about another two hours. We left and went elsewhere until we could go back and book in, not all that satisfactory. Why didn't they just say, "office open times are...." Then we wouldn't have had all the running around.

Great for young travelers

Pros: Central location, quiet room, friendly staff, nice tho small pool
Cons: Bathroom shower update needed, bed lights in double room would be great, kitchen needs more basic equipment
Location: Cable beach a short walk away, bus to Broome outside door
Highlights is definitely a friendly vibe, even for us golden oldies! Staff were great, a bit noisy around pool late arvo and evening.
