We stayed at horizon before and after exploring the islands and is a good base to start your travels. Horizon is very basic and lacks any atmosphere. I would explore other hotels for social interaction. Breakfast was extremely basic. Coffee, toast and fruit. Both rooms we had where old and tired with rock hard pillows. Some staff at the horizon were very welcoming others where only interested when we were going and if you where going to write a good review. I would explore before staying.


All other staff was great. The receptionist kept calling us "you people" when there was a mix up with the booking, I really don't think it's ever appropriate to call another race other than your own you people and if I did that back home I would be considered a racist.

Great atmosphere indeed, breakfast is free and standard and i really loved it. The location just close to the beach is awsome and the public bus to town is available like every hour so you wont spend much on taxi.. :) hope spend a weekend here in the future :)


I stayed 7 nights in this hostel. I had a basic singel room and it was completely ok. Own bathroom, aircondition, bed, fridge. Nothing special, but good. As you can use Smugglers facilitys its quite fair. Some of the staff is very nice, some of them are quite rude. Also it depends very much how their day is. All in all its a cheap good hostel. Basic style.

Booked a double room hoping to be comfortable after long haul flight, and given strange room with bunk bed (single top, double under) and single bed. This meant we had to sleep on creaky bunk bed and not proper bed as hoped. Also the sheets were dirty: sand in bed and a used under sheet. Staff were accommodating when I asked for extra bed linen, albeit there were no friendly Fijian welcomes in sight. Good facilities at smugglers cove sister hostel.


The staff were very friendly and helpful - especially Aunty Lucy. The food promotions were excellent value and of a good quality. The only downside is that it's a short walk to the beach....about 2 minutes. Great,cheap place to stay-would recommend it.


Close to the beach, cheap foodfood. A good place to organise before or after the islands


Not in Nadi town itself but a regular and cheap bus service is available just outside the gates. Free pickup service from the airport was much appreciated, was a good base to arrange travel on to the beautiful Yasawa islands


Perfect as a base to plan onward travel around Fiji


Simple hostel to spend a night or two before island hopping! The staff were incredibly helpful and friendly. I arrived early in the morning hours before check in so they let me have breakfast, leave my bags at reception and informed me to take some time on the beach outside smugglers (sister hostel).


A fine hostel before and after heading to the islands. With the sister hotel next door all your needs are catered for


The continental breakfast is a joke. Not much left by 9:15am and chef complained for having to give me some fruit. Waited over 1 hour for food order off te menu in evening. Staff is kinda rude too. The entertainment in Smugglers Cove is just cringy. Not much positive to say about this place. Cheaper one around if you're stuck for a place to stay and they got motorcycle hire for way too much money.

The rooms


Stayed here for 2 days before we flew onto LA. Great place to start or finish your trip in Fiji. There are more beautiful beaches and settings around the islands. However, this hostel was clean, tidy and great value food so a great place to chill out and save money before you start your next adventure in Fiji.
