“Not worth it!”
Reviewed 26 September 2010

Stayed one night and wouldn't go back. Unfriendly manager as people said here before, poor bathrooms, dark dorms with uncomfortable old bunks and a lot of working-holiday people who seemed really unhappy with their lives didn't make it a very nice place to stay. Broome is a nice town and bet there are better hostels around!

Despite the snooty staff, the loud music and sleazy bar feel when I arrived at the Lasty, it wasn't as bad as I thought it could be. The music stopped at 10 or 11 and all was quiet. I stayed for 5 days and was quite happy with it. It has a friendly, safe and secure feel.

My dorm was clean and recently painted, a little cluttered but not that small. Beds were comfy. There are too few bathrooms for the number of beds and what there are are shabby and could do with a thorough regular clean. The kitchen was impressively clean in the mornings but deteriorted as people used it....There was only one hob which could do with a couple of friends. Again this thing of hiring out crockery and cultery. The communal area is huge with tv, pool, bar- with happy hour but crap beers! The pool area was neat- sunny, planted and loads of chairs, though the bbq looked a little grotty. The free breakfast was ok- weetbix and cheapo tea/coffee.

I only encountered the owner the morning I left- and like the comments below found him to be aggressive and obnoxiusly rude- but hey he's the big man working nights in a hostel and making life difficult for others increases his sense of importance ;-)

Location was good for Broome town itself and the hostal puts on a couple of free buses to Cable Beach. Handy for the gryhound buses leaving the visitors centre too.

There is a party focus but a decent hostel.

I have travelled to a lot of countries in the past few years and have always had a tight budget so try to stay in backpackers or cheap hotels but this place is by far the worst accommodation that I have ever stayed in. We booked a double room for 3 nights which was over priced at $75 a night. The room was small, dark and dingy and the bed was beyond a joke. The matress was moth eaten and had stains all over it and was only about half an inch thick in the middle it was so old and worn, you could feel every wooden slat under you when you lay down. To make matters worse we complained after the first night and asked if we could have a different mattress and swap rooms or get a refund. We were told no refunds were given and they didnt have another mattress and we must be exaggerating. After protesting further that the manager inspect the bed we were told we could swap rooms but the new one wasn't much of an improvement. And that's not all. The bathrooms at this hostel are foul. The showers look as though they have never been cleaned and are full of scum and hair and old razors were left in them for the entire duration of our stay despite the bathrooms supposedly being cleaned daily. The worst thing is the attitude of the owner / manager. He is an agressive man who charges a deposit for absolutely everything (sheets, cutlery, bowls) and there are angry and abusive signs all around the hotel threatening to kick you out without a refund or set the police on you for the slightest error. I understand the concept of running a tight ship but this is extreme. It made the atmosphere really bad and did nothing to improve the state of the hostel which was disgusting.

Do not stay here even if it is your last resort!

I was there watching the a World Cup game and was asked to leave as visitors are prohibited. The manager verbally abused me in the crudest possible manner. I have legal action pending.

This was without a doubt my favorite place in Broome. I stayed in two other backpackers in Broome and this was by far the best. The people were great and so friendly it had a real homely feel, even though it was a party place. There staff were fantastic so helpful and friendly and sometimes a little crazy but very funny.

I got along with everyone that stayed there and made friends for life.

Compared to other backpackers in Broome it was not badly priced either.

What more can I say I know I will be back one day for some more Broome time at the Lasty!

We have travelled for 10 months and this was by far the most terrible place we have stayed. Especially the badroom was disgusting (see pictures). We even went to the nearby McDonalds to go to the bathroom. Don't go there and save your 80 AUD for something else!!

Worst hostel in all Australia (and we've seen alot!)
Staff are unbelievably rude, Rooms are hot and dark.
Have to pay for air-con.
Bathrooms were aweful, dirty, locks on most doors of toilets showers etc were broken and the doors opened outwards.
Small common area.
Make this Hostel your very last resort!!!
