Started off bad as my name was not on airport pickup list, yet I confirmed three days in advance. Booked a week's holiday here with a twin room for myself, but got overbooked the first two days, so had to change rooms which is quite annoying. I did get an upgrade for those two nights with my own bathroom, however... More

The best thing about this hostel is the staff who are super friendly, they remember everybody's names, they make you participate in a number of activities if you want to (kava nights almost every night, ring carving in coconuts, cooking, music everyday all day etc.). Their positive attitude is commendable, and they make you feel right at home. At the... More

My friend and I spent quite a lot of time at this hostel, as we were spending a month in total in Fiji, and we used Bamboo as a place to stay before and after our trips to the islands. After a year travelling around, this has definitely been my favourite hostel to date. The staff were extremely welcoming and... More

Bamboo is a very special place. The staff are fantastic and make you feel part of their family - they are all hilarious and up for a good time. At first I was unsure as the location isn't great and there is a building site next door ... but..as soon as evening came and the kava circle started the atmosphere... More

Had read all the reviews and was so excited about staying here. I was at the end of my trip and therefore decided to stay in a double room on my own. When I arrived I was absolutely devastated with my room, it was cold, vacuous and not what I'd learnt to expect from Fiji. The staff were great but... More

Bula vinaka, Thanks for this review and apologies that Bamboo was not ideal for your stay. We appreciate your lovely staff comments and will strive to improve our room 18 experience. We will be popping down to the bed factory on Monday morning to replace the mattress in question! We do highly recommend Smugglers Cove and Aquarius for those with... More

We were meant to stay here for a total of 3 nights but had a delay in getting to Fiji and so had to cancel 2 of the nights. The owner was very helpful in trying to assist us as we kept having changes to our date of arrival. This is a very buzzy hostel with a good atmosphere right... More

One of the big thing at Bamboo is the staff friendliness. They are all very welcoming and would invite anyone passing by to join for a Kava or simply come along and listen to acoustic music or watch fire dancers on the beach at night. The first we experienced Bamboo was simply by walking around the neighbourhood as we were... More

We stayed for four nights in a double room. The room was basic but clean, located just behind the kitchen so there was some noise but it didn't bother us. We had lots of space for our bags, the WiFi was great and we had tea/coffee facilities and a fridge in our room. All of the staff were fab, especially... More

My husband and I stayed 1 night here but would have enjoyed more time there. We were traveling down the coast to Suva. We stayed in a private room with a bathroom. It was pretty worn from the pictures on the website but still clean and comfortable. The free wi-fi around the reception area was great to get caught up... More
