A few doors down from smugglers cove (I previously reviewed) this hostel is close in proximity but a world away on service. The staff are fantastic and make the stay so welcoming. Even to owner Richard can be found in the bar often chatting to guests. The bar is right on the beach and sees lovely sunsets where Simon can... More

The bar & resturant were really good - reasonably priced & good quality food. The staff were friendly and the wifi was decent most of the time (in the communal areas not the bedrooms). The beach and facilities were good & the lady at the travel shop helped me book my island hopping & told me what to do/ expect.... More

We stayed here twice. Before our island hopping and after. Our first stay was after landing from New Zealand and we stayed in a dorm room. It was a bit dirty and cramped but okay for the money. Unfortunately however when we woke up we were covered in bed bug bites. Upon counting I had 80 bites. My friend was... More

Bula bula, Thanks for the nice feedback about our Private Rooms and good food. And apologies for the unfortunate experience. Yes you are right that the travellers occasionally bring them in. Our dorms especially have a high turnover of alternative travellers so we have a regular cleaning schedule and we must always stay on high alert for bugs. Our awesome... More

I spent about one week at bamboo's and it's indeed the best place to stay in Nadi. It's near always full so you better book before your arrival in Fiji. The restaurant is good, although the prices are a little bit expensive in comparison to a normal restaurant. The stuff is always willing to help you and they really take... More

I stayed at bamboo for 2 nights before traveling onwards in Fiji. The staff are friendly and the food is really good. It's a pretty chill atmosphere and there is a beach right behind the hostel and buses and taxis around. The location isn't the best but if you just want to chill then this is perfect. I visited the... More

I really liked this hostel. The atmosphere is relaxed and ia a pretty mixed crowd here. The prices are good, food is really nice and service is very friendly. Rooms are quite simple but clean. The staff is really helpful in booking trips and transport. I would go again!
