I stayed here for nearly 6 months and loved it. For people on a WHV doing their regional work in Kununurra it's probably the best place to stay. The pool and courtyard is clean and tidy, everyone hangs out together in the evening which gives the place a really friendly vibe. If your staying long term, some of the rooms... More

Considering of location and facilities, it's value price. Friendly staff, clean room. As its reasonable fee, young people are the major of guests and some of them put music player outside and got pissed, chatting loud sometimes, but everyone followed this hostel's rules (e.g. no noise after 9 pm). A bit disadvantage is you have to pay $10 for a... More

I stayed in this hostel last year and somehow lost my passport. I didn't realise, and carried on my road trip to Darwin. When I realised I had lost it I called everyone and found that I'd left it in the Kimberley croc backpackers. They actually sent it to me in Darwin for no money or anything. Absolutely amazing staff.... More

Advantages: Budget prices (for Kununurra), pleasant internal courtyard with palm trees, clean rooms except where other occupants in a shared room happen to be messy, helpful and knowledgeable staff. Disadvantages: on many nights the central courtyard becomes a lively socialising place for younger guests - travellers and seasonal workers - from late afternoon till after midnight. All the rooms face... More

Hi there, I am glad you enjoyed the facilities, i am sorry that it was noisy for you both, as it is our policy to limit noise. The issue with the noise has been rectified, due to a change in Night Caretakers and will not occur again. We hope you join us again in the future, or our budget motel... More

Staff were super friendly and helpful, and flexible with checking in around my busy tourist schedule! Dorm was basic, but clean and with good aircon. Close to a few lovely cafes, and good base for seeing all of the amazing stuff around Kununurra. Also offered a shuttle to the airport much cheaper than local taxis.

I spent 8 days there just on holidays and if you're a backpacker I definitely highly recommend the place, it's the best you could actually stay at, especially if you're on your own. The staff is not the frendliest I have come across (not really prepared to consider specific cases or making exceptions about the overall rules) but yet they're... More

When people think of backpackers accommodation their heart usually drops. However, Kimberley Croc was beautifully kept, rooms were serviced daily, staff were always available and helpful on many if not all topics and the friendly vibe, swimming pool and locality to town made my stay beyond easy. They have thought of everything (there is even a shuttle service provided for... More

I can't recommend this place enough. I spent all of March there and it has to be the cleanest, friendliest and most accommodating backpackers I've had the pleasure of staying in. The pool and bbq area are perfect for relaxing after a tough day of work; or socialising on a Friday night. 5 stars!
