I recently book 3 Double Rooms for my family to stay here over the long weekend. It appeared to have everything they needed for a short stay. We did not consider that the Rooms would be So Dirty, and Smell so Bad. 3 rooms were Terrible. That's 3 out of 3. Not only did we Not get a Ocean Front... More

Horizon backpackers is a great place to orient yourself if you've just arrived in Fiji. It's clean, cheap and you get what you pay for.... Midweek meal deals are a good option but beware as it gets busy on deal nights. When you book a night, you also get a free breakfast voucher but don't get too excited as this... More

There is no view. It is not on the beach. There is a pool. The beer prices are great and the pizza is very good. There is a pasta night on Thursdays also which is a good bargain. Expect to park on the street.

We stayed here for 3 nights in a private double room. Our flight got into Fiji around 7am and after breakfast the receptionist let us go for a nap in the dorm while we waited for our room which was really nice! Rachel, the travel lady, was really nice and helped us book our island hopping tour. She even made... More

We stayed only one night after a late flight. The staff were friendly and helpful upon arrival which was a nice welcome after a long flight and transfer. The room was pretty basic and seemed quite old but was clean enough. The fan above the bed worked which helped us sleep well. There was a bit of noise at night,... More
