I stayed here for over a week in a four-bed dorm. The hostel is based in a nice, smallish building with a really lovely garden/pool area. It’s the peaceful option but is in the same stretch as all the other hostels and has recently become connected with Bamboo – a slightly more ‘happening’, beachfront hostel - so you can walk... More

Booked this hostel (it's not of Bed & Breakfast standard) 6 months in advance. Yes its cheap and there is a reason, my husband got attacked by some type of bugs and my friends had their ipod stolen (even though they deny this, photos of the culprits came up when my friends logged in back in the UK). When we... More

Bula bula, Bluewater Lodge has been recently re-imagined to become a humble home for thrifty travellers from all walks of life. We offer a comfy and cosy environment with clean and spacious AC rooms, a large garden patio, a great pool and fast free wifi.

My partner and I stayed in the dorms here for 4 nights total. It was a good location - near other restaurants and bars, but still very economical in comparison. We left our bags here for the whole time in Fiji - 3 weeks, and the ladies were very helpful to plan our trip. The pool is amazing and the... More

Stayed here for a couple of nights in the 6 bed dorm room. The rooms, beds and bathrooms are extremely clean. The quiet surrounding area away from the larger backpacker scene hotels is a welcome retreat. Additionally, the pool area and lobby have very relaxed vibes. All staff are very friendly and welcoming and can help you with any information... More

I stayed here with a good friend for a week - it was clean and comfortable. Such a pleasant place in an otherwise rowdy backpackers area, with a lovely pool and deck space. I must say that the food was not only the best food we had during our trip to Fiji, but some of the best food I've ever... More

They helped us with the booking for some Island visits and made great recommendations. The lodge itself is very clean and the swimming pool is nice and cool. Usualy cool is not something you...

Excellent. Nearby Hostels do not come close too the feel and peace of this Hostel. Owners are awesome. Again the best in Wailoaloa. No gossip if you are local. Safe from overzealous security guards at other nearby Hostels.

First time was amazing, great people, great food and wonderful service. However the second time we had to stay with 'appleman' who was very annoying and ended up being kicked out. I would go here again despite this, the food here is the best on Wailoaloa.

We stayed here for 10 days and had an amazing time. The staff got to know us and made us a traditional Fijian dinner which was cooked in a hole in the garden. We drank kava and sang songs with the staff till all hours at night. Would stay here again and the food, well I miss that food! Just... More
