Jump in our outdoor pool – where we'll also give you a free scuba-diving or paddle-board lesson. When evening comes, our free nightly entertainment features the guitar-and-ukelele sounds of Tai and the Kavaholics, and Fijian and Polynesian hulas with fire-dance shows. To really relax, pop along to our on-site spa for a massage.


We'll pick you up from the airport and take you straight to our hostel in around 15 minutes. You can arrive any time, as our free transfer service runs 24 hours (there's a charge for airport drop-off).

There, you can hang out in the shopping centre and bars, or take cruises – Fiji has 330 islands to explore. We're also a 10-minute drive from multicultural Nadi Town with its Chinese and Indian restaurants, and jewellery and clothes stores.

    Everyone is very friendly especially Sia, who was so kind to me on my first night in Fiji. Dorm room feels like there is less people because of dividers which is good. Nice restaurant, but food can be a bit pricey. Helpful tour desk.

    Very friendly staff who were welcoming and helpful. Great airport pickup service. Don was the man! Amazingly comfortable bed, and nice room. Kitchen was a little more expensive than surrounding areas but the food was worth it.

    pretty decent spot, personally recommended by folks on tour around the islands. bit of a mixed bag though. we paid for a deluxe ocean view but we're substituted a bit shabby "family" room instead. oh well just for a night. decent bar and pool area. food was nice, but would love to see more native Fiji dishes on the menu. denerau and just resort food generally can be bland. Kava ceremony was great, but i feel that the overall spirit of the ceremony is lost on the mostly quite drunk tourists.

    For a hostel, I really enjoyed my stay. It wasn’t load in the evenings with partying backpackers. The room was comfortable as clean. The bathroom was a bit dirty and old with low water pressure, but for the price I was overall happy. Can’t expect a 5 star stay for a cheap price. However, Food was on the pricey side. I ended up eating down the road at the local restaurant or buying my own food at the market.

    smugglers was a good place to chill out and enjoy a drink and the views . close by other places and a short taxi into town . I wouldn't rave about there food , it wasn't great and would recommend trying others places close by instead . staff were friendly but when you choose to do a tour or wanna see a certain island be very specific with what you want to see and go , some staff I found to not be very helpful and would just agree with you without knowing them selfs .

    The staff at reception were so incredibly unhelpful and quite frankly rude (the women). They make you feel extremely unwelcome. However, Epi was really nice but apart from that this hostel is definitely one to avoid.

    The facilities of this hostel are ok, but the staff tried so much to cheat me (say that only the 4 bed dorm is available while the 24 bed is also, do not give back the correct change...) The ambience of the hostel is not very good.
