“Average accommodation”
Reviewed 25 April 2012

I had anticipated that the accommodation in Nadi would be great value for money but this is not the case. The staff are outstanding and the food great but the actual hostel only has two showers and they are very dirty by the evenings, there is also only one toilet upstairs and downstairs. The rooms are very hot even with aircon and mosquitos are a massive problem (although this may not necessarily be the case due to the floods happen a week earlier.) This hostel is not near to anywhere and has no atmosphere, everyone went over the road to have drinks, eat and party. The internet is very slow and taxi charges are higher that advertised on all websites.

The staff were friendly, in fact so friendly they partied with some guests which kept us aake all night. The next morning there was no hot water in the shower (the hot water tap had no water coming from it). B'fast is 6:30-9:30am. After no shower we sat down for B'fast at 7:25am, asked the lady cleaning up the mess from last night if we could have b'fast. However she couldn't wake the staff. At 8:30 the manager came in & gave us b'fast, we thought he lived some where else but no he lived upstairs (why he didn't stop the party I don't know). The pool was only cleaned once that was so the owners nieces & nephew could swim in it, prior to this it was cloudy.
I wanted to leave after the first night but as we couldn't afford to leave we had no choise but to stay. Oh yes we couldn't read in our room as the main light doesn't work. he toilet paper holder kept falling off the wall & there was mould growing in one corner of the ceiling.

Lovely little homely hostel with really happy helpful staff. Super clean and just the right place to chill out after a trip to the islands. For a busy lively bar go round the corner to smugglers, for chilling out and good food stay here! Best place I've stayed in Nadi!

Along this one road there are about a dozen hostels/guesthouses and although I haven't stayed in any of the others, this was a pretty good one.

The biggest draw for me was the free, unlimited internet access and breakfast included. It was a comfortable stay with friendly and really helpful staff. A great time all around!

Stayed here for 5 nights, the staff were SO lovely and would do anything for you. I stayed in a double room which was huge and had a really nice en-suite. The aircon was a god send in the heat as well. Unfortunately it was raining horrifically while we were there so we didn't get to experience much of the pool or beach, but the beach is literally just a 2 minute walk from the hostel and the pool was good to swim in when the weather did brighten up a bit!

The food you can order was gorgeous and a good variety. Again, the staff were just awesome.

Had a complimentary pick up from the airport and if you needed a taxi you just had to ask in reception and they would get one for you.

Only little issue was that my room wasn't serviced at all while I was there, I had to ask for more toilet roll etc but I don't really class that as being an issue!

It was a great start to my Fiji experience.
