Real hot water showers with amazing water pressure(!!!), it's clean, $5 for laundry, there's a nice kitchen, the wifi is ok, towels, helpful staff and the location is good. Our first three nights were super quiet but on the fourth night, a group of Aussies had a party in the kitchen and kept everyone awake until 3am. Hopefully that's not normal though.

The hostel owner has some kind of scam set up with the taxi drivers. He (the owner) told us that we needed to leave one hr and 15 mins early for the ferry to Utila and that it was very far and we needed to pay the driver 200 L ($10). The driver repeated the same to us. It's a five minute drive. After dropping us at the ferry, the same driver had time to leave and come back FOUR TIMES bringing other people from our hostel. SCAM! Also, NO RUNNING WATER but this could have been the city's fault
There are only two toilets and since they also are also showers, it was IMPOSSIBLE to get in there in the morning. All the guys were peeing in water bottles because of the insanely long waits in the morning. Other than that, this place is really not very clean. I really wanted to like it here because the staff were extreamly friendly and helpful (and the showers were hot!) but we still had to switch hostels after a couple days because of how gross the place was and because of the bathroom sit
All the staff (especially Fernando) were amazing and super helpful! The cleanliness could be a bit better though, and unless you leave your A/C is on constantly, your room will become very damp and humid. In fact, our laptop BROKE because of the humidity in our room. Yeah. As for the location, it's very good if you don't mind being downtown. When we wanted to go to the beach and hotel zone, we just took the R1 or R2 bus for 9 pesos each. There's also a water jug for your to refill your bo
There was hot water (6am-9am, 6pm-9pm), super-fast wifi, perfect location, the breakfast was great (and didn’t make us sick!) and the owner gave us three bottles of water for free! The room and bathroom could have used a good scrub but it’s really wasn’t bad for India. Note: they only give you a tiny roll of toilet paper (but this is pretty standard)

Hated that they allowed smoking in the lobby and that the owner was the main offender; however rooms were far enough away that it didn't bother us there.
Wasn't as much of a gem as everyone makes it out to be, but the staff was great, the location was right in the heart of the city and the overall cleanliness was good. However, it was far more expensive than other options in the area, and there was a lack of hot water. Also, they didn't have water at all at one point and they "lost power" for about 8 hours, but everyone else had power in the area so...
It's pretty far from Maloboro street (main strip), but I think the street it is on is better! Everything you need is there. Hostel itself was alright, not fancy and we had issues with mosquitoes, but decent still.
It's a hotel, not a hostel. Good place to stay. Getting there from the Ferry can be a pain though. Take a taxi to the local bus station (should be less than 10 dollars) and then take a bus from there to the city for $1.
The staff make this place!! They are great and VERY welcoming. The place is a little dirty and there was no hot water, but internet is free! It's Fiji so you can't ask for much. Far from city but right on a great little beach. Good food close by. Free fire show, from airport picj up, free kava and a great chill out spot. Rooms are big but literally no keys or doors, just open to everyone (dorms). Lots of mosquitoes too. Better than most of the others in the are though! .
A mix of a motel and a hostel. Bath was in suite and things were clean. A little far from town but other hostels are too. Nice staff, but only 2 or 3 people on staff. Close to bars and resturants.
This place is like coming home for us. We've been here 4 times now. Clean, easy check in, great staff, no hassles. All the things you expect for a good hostel. Not a place to party through, good for sleeping and just relaxing!
Decent little spot, not a great location for town but neither is the competition. The staff is great and it is clean and most YHA's are.
Nice little place, MJ (the manager) was AWESOME and very helpful! We would stay again without question! Greymouth on the other hand... not the best place to spend time!
This place is not worth the money! And it's even more if you just walk in and book (thanks for saving us some $ hostelworld!) It's a typical Base (party place), but the bar is loud and if you want to sleep, this is not the place. We were also told by staff to make sure to lock your stuff up because 5 passports and a few computers are stolen every week! We also had someone drinking and smoking in our room, and when we said something to the staff, nothing was done.
A little ways out of the city, but easily walked (all the hostels are like this). Typical YHA, clean enough and above par for the other backpacker places! Easy access to things in the city!
Worst Hostel of our Trip! After a 12 hour train ride, we wanted nothing more than a hot shower and a clean room. We arrived to be told there was NO water, no hot or cold! We couldn't even wash our hands! The hotel was being run by a tourist from Sweeden because the owner had left the day before to a wedding! We arrived to no water at all, a dirty room (sheets were BAD), and no owner. We were VERY disappointed to say the least. We left the next day and stayed elsewhere. Don't waste your money!
AMAZING!!! The best place we have stayed in the past 6 months of traveling. Sony and his family are amazing and so nice. Truly a great experience.
