The hostel is very beautiful and has a strong nature feel to it with lots of plants and trees all around. Nick, the guy on reception when we arrived was hilarious and gave us a fantastically warm welcome. The hostel is chilled out and the rooms are a good size with great amounts of storage. This hostel would be ideal... More

I stayed at Croc's for 2 weeks. The hostel is nice, just the kitchen a bit messy. A big minus was the owner - she regularly came in the evening to kick out everybody who wasn't living there. You weren't allowed to have fun and hang around, because it "is annoying for other guests", which wasn't true, because nobody was... More

We stayed at the Croc backpackers back in august for 6 weeks. This hostel is clean, welcoming and offers a home from home experience. Any issue whether it be a big issue or a small one was dealt with professionally by the couple managing the hostel. Great amenities close within 150m so the Croc is the best place to be!... More

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
