Had a great stay at Bamboo, the staff were super friendly, the food was great and it was so easy to meet other travellers. I stayed in the 14 dorm bed and there were no bunk beds which was great, there were lockers on either side of the room and separate mens and womens bathrooms/showers. Would definitely recommend

We had such a lovely stay at Bamboo beach and all the staff were so helpful and friendly. The rooms were clean and spacious and we had our own lockers, with hot showers which were heavenly after cold showers on the islands. The Wi-Fi was really good and we would stay again if we returned.

Best hostel ive every stayed in, the vibe is so good and everyone seems to get stuck here because its so chill, nobody seems to need to move on quickly. Good staff, good people, good food and cheap beer

Great place to stay with a great atmosphere, we extended our stay. The beach isn't as good as the islands but there is beach volleyball and pool to make up for it. The staff are lovely here.

A few issues with being put in a completely different hostel the first time round. But we were moved back to bamboo straight away after speaking to a helpful lady. Location is great on the beach, facilities are good (showers were great) and staff are quite friendly. Easy to book day trips- although the day trip we booked didn't go to plan but we were given a full refund. Food was also really good - the BBQ especially! Would stay again.

Very noisy, beds a little unsturdy and room too big. Excellent value for money in an ideal location for a brief stop between port and airportairport.

Great place to stay on a budget. Their cafe and bar are also really good. Facilities aren't the best, but they're certainly tolerable and on point for the price.

Bad start to Fiji as we waited for a transfer as promised by the hostel for 3 hours until we just decided to get a taxi as no one was showing up. The hostel paid for our taxi and were apologetic but then the next issue occurred where they gave us the wrong room, again they were apologetic and sorted it out but had already wasted much of our day. The staff were nice but far too many issues. This hostel needs to sort out it's booking and preparation systems. Rooms were average but beach was great

Bula bula, thanks for the feedback and apologies for the less than perfect stay. Our free airport pickup team are usually great! So sorry that they missed you. Our hostel is just 10 minutes from the airport and we will always pay for the taxi in cases like this. Vinaka vaka levu and happy travels. the bamboo team.

The place to stay in Nadi. Right on the beach, beds are comfy and clean. Staff are so friendly and you can catch the boat to the islands from here. Breakfast and lunch was great but dinner food was average but reasonably priced. Free wifi is good. Sun loungers and a pool to relax. Would really reccommend this place

Great place to chill out in Nadi, right on the beach and around all the other hostels. Staff are lovely and make you feel like you belong. Good food (cheapest in the area) and good travel advice. Would recommend.

It is close to the airport and they offer airport pick-up which is really handy. The hostel backs onto the beach and offers a nice view at sunset. We ended up staying at the sister resort (Tropic) a couple of doors down as this is where they could fit us in but both hostels are much the same.

Staff was incredible, they made the experience. They always remembered your name, and that says a lot.

This was the worst hostel I stayed at in Fiji. I stayed here after coming back from the Yasawa's and whilst there were a few people that were checking in, the wait was ridiculously long. Then I was sent to a dorm that was overbooked and had to wait again until they had checked which dorm actually had space. I ended up staying in the ground floor. There were cockroaches everywhere in the dorm and having stayed in another 2 hostels on the same strip, this was the only one that was infested.

Quite nice place, friendly staff that have plenty of advice to give you on where to go in Fiji. Nice place just by the beach, lots of backpacker. Recommend

I was only staying for one night and had to get up very early for airport the next morning but people here are so friendly, I still met people and had fun. On site restaurant serves good food, service maybe a little slow at peak dinner times but that's expected. Location decent, lots of other hotels and hostels with a minimart at the end of the road so good for getting snacks and sells souvenirs too. Kava circle was awesome, everybody really chill and staff playing guitar :) good taxi service

I only had one issue with bamboo, that they didn't honour their cancellation policy. I cancelled with them for one night, over 24 hours notice and was still charged full amount and told there nothing they could do. Apart from that everytjing else was perfect, great food staff and atmosphere.
