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.

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.

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.

Nice place to chill out and rest before going or after arriving from the airport. Long black sand beach. kava welcoming session. Bar and catering on the beach. Facilities need maintenance. Take a padlock to use a locker in the dorms. Good for short stays.

A good hostel and fully booked whilst I was staying there so the atmosphere was nice. More backpackers than many of the other hostels nearby which helped. Cleanliness was slightly lacking; a lot of cat mess in and around the hostel which wasn't pleasant. Other than that I enjoyed my stay here.

Bula bula, thanks for the nice feedback and apologies for the pussycat situation. Some of our dorm guests spontaneously adopted a cute kitty, but when our housekeep team noticed the 'cat mess' we swiftly found kitty another home :) Vinaka and happy travels. the bamboo team.

Written on the hostelworld description that a free shuttle to the city exists which is not the case. Free pickup at the airport is nice - however dropping is charged. Breakfast not included.

Bula and thanks for the feedback. Yes we offer a free airport meet and pickup for our guests (please send us flight # in advance), but please note we have never offered a free shuttle to the city (we cannot see this written in our hostelworld description). For those seeking budget transport to the city, we recommend a local bus @ F$1.15pp :) Vinaka vaka levu. the bamboo team

Bamboo was a great place to stay! Staff were friendly and very helpful and always happy. I stayed 4 nights between heading to the Islands and the experience tour around main island feejee experience tour.

This hostel was one of the best hostels we stayed in during the first four months if our RTW trip. Time was flying there, we stayed 6 nights but it felt like 3. The staff is very friendly and helpfull and even picked us up from the airport. There's something different going on every night. We witnessed kava parties, different live musicians, a bonfire on the beach with an acrobatic fire show by the local talent. The food was delicious (try The Burger) and reasonably priced. Would stay again!

i would definitely stay here again and would happily recommend this hostel to anyone looking for accommodation that is simple and clean at a very decent price. They have great staff who have created a very easy going relaxed atmosphere, the perfect place to sit back, relax and enjoy the Fiji pace of life. The food is great, the activities and tours are great and the festivities every night are a great way to end these lovely days in paradise. Thank you :)

For full review: https://howdareshetravel.wordpress.com/2015/05/06/hostel-review-bamboo-beach-nadi-fiji/ Friendliest staff ever! Location is good, directly on the beach, nestled in with several other hostels, so great community vibe. Right next to bus stop. Arrange your airport pickup in advance. Food is good. WiFi is ok. No guest-use kitchen or fridges. Would go back again and again just for the people. Enjoy cava time!! Not only the cava, but sitting, singing and enjoying company.

I didn't realize this, but you can't cook your own food. However, their kitchen makes amazing dishes! The staff is very friendly, but honestly I noticed a trend of people really trying to get you to buy their things or use their services so just keep that in mind and be firm in your answer. For a few days just to chill out though it was perfect. You can also schedule tours out to the other islands that will give you that more refined/resort feel. We were def. more rustic lol.
