I would have loved to stay here for longer. Relaxed atmosphere, enough space for everyone and awesome staff, that's the recipe for a good hostel. The combination of hammocks and free wifi... perfect after being on the road for days! I usually don't like hostels with a bar because they're just too noisy and I don't want to party 7...

This was a pretty good backpackers. The highlight for me was the friendly staff, particularly the manager Jesse who went out of his way to ensure I enjoyed my short stay in Broome.
