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!

For me when I'm staying at a backpackers, there are really only 3 criteria that have to be met. Cleanliness, safety, comfort. The Croc has all 3 of these in the bag. Bedrooms, kitchen, pool area and grounds were constantly kept clean and tidy by both staff and fellow backpackers. For added protection the facility's front gate is locked in... More

Entering the Kimberley Croc Backpackers is like coming home, even when your real home is all the way back in Europe. It's one of those cozy places where the friendly staff and the clean and comfortable facilities make you feel welcome.
