The Cranky Croc provided exceptional facilities and services at an affordable price. Always clean bathrooms, good number of showers to guests, hot water and towels provided. Modern kitchen with decent set of supplies. Breakfast was not included but the cook made delicious options at a reasonable price. Laundry, shuttle and tours all available. Staff were wonderful: they provided a towel for us to use for a shower after we had checked out (we had a late flight). Excellent central location.

Great hostel in central location. The beds are nice and sturdy and the rooms and bathrooms very clean. The social area is nice and very spacious and the atmosphere is great for getting to know people. The hostel offers daily tours which makes things nice and easy (walking, biking, graffiti, party nights etc). Had an amazing BBQ for just 17000. Would recommend!

Good hostel and location...during the daytime. Well located in the historic district, close to Monserrate, and most tours can be booked through the hostel. At night, there are tons of bars and clubs around (its right next to the university) but there are also some shady folk lingering around. An in house chef also prepares daily breakfast and dinner menu. Staff is helpful, only downside is wifi can be slow and hot water can run out at busy hours.

Excellent hostel, the common room was very nice and made it very easy to meet people. The beds were comfy and the restrooms were well maintained. The staff was generally nice except for one guy running the desk who seemed annoyed if I asked anything. Overall, very good hostel if you are looking to meet people and have a good time.

My only issues here are the wifi, but I feel that slows down as a result of the music being played via YouTube videos throughout the day. One of the staff members at the desk seemed to be a bit distant and less friendly than the others. The breakfast costing a fair bit of money compared to local options nearby, otherwise the place is great. Would absolutely recommend this hostel to anyone else. The free tour operated by Freddy is great too, and highly recommend anyone staying goes on it.

Lovely clean dorms (I was in the four bed) with large lockers with plugs inside them. Toilets and showers were well maintained and clean. A great hostel, somewhat let down by the limited hangout space - there are two common areas, but the first is filled with tables for the café, and isn't ideal for chilling out, and the TV room is very small and not suited for anything other than watching the TV. I wonder if it might be possible to put some hammocks or couches in the second courtyard?

Loved my stay at Cranky Croc! Pros: - cool common area where people were social; great atmosphere; great people; pretty awesome music for chilling - comfy bed - good location Cons: - toilets, sinks, and showers could do with being cleaned more!! Seriously. - Internet was so slow at times, although apparently this is more to do with the area. - While reception staff were helpful, they could have been more attentive maybe.
