even though the staff , sharon , was amazing, others were not, waitress in kitchen awesome,, we ate there and at bamboo, food from horizon, especially the bony chicken, would avoid chicken meals with bone, bad,,, came as leftovers from smugglers, as horizon is smugglers, not sister, i horizon is the best hotel on this corner for hot showers, and in room 201, quiet, rooms on left are subject to barking dogs all night long, bamboo had the best deals

this is a smugglers hostel, and the food is mostly leftover from smugglers, pizza is made at smuugglers, use smugglers facilities stay here, use bamboo wifi, use bamboo to book tours, but stay here and get room 201, uppper right, quiet, nice, argue for it , as dogs will keep you awake, they will upgrade you,,,,,,taxi is 1 fiji dollar return, not 14, take bus to airport, taxi 1 fiji to corner, take bus rest,,,

this is best for pro backpackers, not for those wishing comfort, no hot showers, bad kitchen facilities, free wifi, and great tours advice, go to tunverni, take shuttle to suva and then ferry,,,,

Bula Vinaka, thank you for the review. We offer a simple backpacker hostel for travellers seeking a fun, friendly, and atmospheric base in Fiji. For those seeking something more upmarket, we warmly recommend Aquarius and Nadi Bay Resort. Our spot offers a basic kitchenette (not a full kitchen) and we have loads if Fiji travel info to experience the real side of Fiji. We definitely agree with you about going to Taveuni on the local ferry- the most beautiful island in Fiji :) Thanks again and happy travels. The Bamboo Crew.

the noise was unbelieveable, no one in bar yet the blaring, the banging went on all night, til 4 am,, why???? but sunday was quieter, why? cause backpackers who work need there sleep, but traVELLERS DO NOT?? THE ROOM WAS MISSED, NOT CLEAN, sheet on bed had a wet spot, and the trash not taken out, front counter was sooo angry that i did not wish to sleep in others filth, glad to be checked out, nasty kitchen due to backpackers, nasty,,

I believe there was an obvious mismatch between yourselves and the usual clientele that use a backpackers. This is, after all, a backpacker's hostel; therfore a certain level of youthful exuberemce from other guests is to be expected. In saying this, we do endeavour to keep the noise of others to a reasonable level, and on the particular weekend in question, I don't believe it was excessive. Also at no time did you approach us to remedy any of the problems with your room. If you had I'm sure we would have been glad to attend to this. Like a lot of backpackers, we have shared facilities, and although cleaning is carried out on a daily basis, it is inevitable sometimes to have to deal with the messy habits of others. I'm sorry that this was what your experience during your time at our hostel.
