The shuttle picked us up at the airport. When we arrived at the hotel, we learned that our rooms wouldn't be ready until almost 1pm. Other than that the experience was xcellent!

All in all good atmosphere, many activities and really welcoming staff but I got some bedbugs as a souvenir. The accommodation is directly at the beach and only a 15min bus ride from Nadi city.

Practical Backpackers.

Positives: Excellent social atmosphere. The 'music men' were fantastic. Good layout. Has everything a backpacker needs. Except for 2, staff very friendly. Negatives: Hard to get back into backpackers once left. Even tho I had been a backpacker there & was known, reception still wanted half payment for room that night on spot. Didn't have purse with me. One sales staff also didn't care at all whether I booked a popular tour or not citing that there were not enough ppl going for tour to ho ahead. Fine just be respectful. Only 2 staff were rude. Low wages I guess. Rest were awesome !!

Pretty good backpackers

Excellent reception staff. Cheap food with fairly good variety. Very friendly enthusiastic nightly kava ceremonies. Pretty good for the price. Local (small) convenience store a short walk away. Stayed in a private room with private bathroom/shower. Very basic but clean and everything worked. Not the nicest beaches nearby but buses are frequent (and very cheap!!) on Queens Rd to take you anywhere. We stayed over Xmas/new year and had no issues at all with buses.

Amazing hostel right on the beach

I stayed at Bamboo Backpackers in Nadi, Fiji and I couldn't have had a better experience. From the second I emailed them about picking me up from the airport they responded promptly and courteously. The driver was there right on time and was very helpful with my luggage and showing me around. The hostel is a short drive from the airport, about 10-15 minutes. Reception is open 24/7 which was great since I arrived at midnight. I stayed in a 8 bed dorm room which was spacious and clean. Great for the price of only $15 AUD. The staff was super friendly and had no problem answering any questions I had. Holly, especially, was courteous and delightful to me. She helped me find where to get buses, book tours, and gave me advice on the best places to go. On top of all of this, the hostel is right on the beach and has two pools as well. They offer free volleyball, pool, sunset walks, rugby, jewlrey making, and so much more. They also have a great bar with modest prices and some really good food. I would highly recommend this hostel to anyone coming to Nadi.

Cute hotel right next to the beach!

The staff was extremely helpful and friendly. The room was clean and if you're travelling on a budget you can't go wrong with this hotel. Drinks by the pool and food were really good. I would go back to this place if I'm ever Nadi again.

Good hostel with a great atmosphere

Stayed in both 16 an 8 be dorms. The 16 were actually better even though it looked like a war medical room it was fine in there! In the 8 bed the bunk beds are very wobbly. The atmosphere is great and staff are very friendly, good food too!
