    For the price this place was awesome. Perfect for the start or end of a trip, because it’s close to the airport. Do a day trip to the mud pools, and explore downtown Nadi! Free pick up from the airport. Cute fire dance night.

    Overall a good stay for a night or two right next to the airport. The dorm rooms are a very good price. Although they are for 30+ people. I imagine when it’s full it can feel a little cramped but when we went it was only ever half full or less and so was a very comfortable stay. Dorms are separated into 4’s with a locker. Bathrooms are ok. The food is quite expensive. I’d recommend going along the beach to the Bamboo Travellers as food is a little cheaper. Shop right next door.

    Good for just a stop over: it's next to the beach and there is a restaurant/cafe so you don't have to worry about food. I wouldn't stay here longer than 1 night, there is nothing else but for a few hotels and hostels. The airport shuttle only picks you up from the airport, so you'll have to take a taxi back (who in our case pretended not to have change so we had to pay almost double the price).

    Overall good stay. Room good size, doesn’t really feel like a hostel. Food isn’t great, waited over an hour for one meal and chicken wasn’t even cooked and it is quite isolated in terms of location. Taxis are SO expensive

    The hotel itself is nice. It’s close to the ocean, which is a big advantage. We really enjoyed the evening program made by fijian. But I was not happy with service! We booked a private room with double bed, paid more in order to get a higher comfort and istead of that, I got a room with bunk bed, which looked like the one in hospital and a single bed. When I was complaining, they couldnt do anything at that time. No compansation, anything, they just gave me a room I didnt book Wifi is paid!!

    We are very disappointed with their service, We booked two nights and we were told by the hotel that they couldn’t accommodate us on the second night because it was fulled already and they had to transfer us to their neighborhood which we didn’t like it. It’s the first time for us to book thru hostel world

    Overall our stay was fine, we stayed in a double room ensuite in the 2nd building. We enjoyed the lounge chair on the beach, hot water in the shower and the free pick up from the airport (you have to pay to go back to the airport $14). However a few things could have been better: - most of the staff was friendly except one at the tour desk who was just trying to sale without listening to what we were looking for. - we saw a few cockroaches in our room - location, nothing much around

    The hostel is okay, but nothing amazing. Food is very pricey and there is not much of a hostel "vibe". I would much rather recommend you to stay at the "Bamboo Backpackers" just a few buildings further down the beach.

    Reception staff are extremely rude & unprofessional. Really should try to make the guests you have comfortable instead of reserving bottom bunks for customers who don’t even show up. really should be given a lesson on customer service. Food & drink is more than double the price from the restaurant next door so defo check that out. No atmosphere at the bar, for a better backpacker experience check into Bamboo instead.

    I realize that this is primarily a hostel but I decided to splurge and booked a private room to get some peace and quiet after backpacking around for a week. I was surprised when the room I got had a window facing the outside busy street intersection where taxis picked up and dropped off ... with no way to close the window. My room essentially had three walls. I couldn’t sleep the entire night and would have been better off probably staying in one of their hostel bunk beds for way less cost.
