Prior to arriving in Fiji, I only booked my first night at Bamboo as I was not sure what my plans would be and where they would take me. By the end of my trip I had spent my entire 9 days in Fiji at Bamboo and have no regrets. Not only did I make traveling friends from all over... More

We stayed here as our first stop of our 3 weeks in Fiji. Everyone was so friendly and welcoming with recommendations of places to see. The room was clean but very basic (only cold showers etc.) We didn't find this a problem as were out most of the time and it was a cool place to come back to. They... More

I arrived in fiji in May and have based myself at bamboo for the last 5 months. The atmosphere is like living with a fijian family and the staff are so friendly and helpful. I'll definitely stay here again next time i'm in fiji. This place is more than just a gateway to the islands, it's a destination to visit... More

a friend of mine and I stayed 7 days in October 2013 at Bamboo. When we hit the road we always stay in Hostels, therefore we know a lot of them and what to expect. But Bamboo really surprised us. We booked a private double room with our own bathroom. The room was quite big and the bathroom was clean.... More

I never stayed at Bamboo Backpackers. This review is entirely based on my view that when it came down to it, they did not do the right thing. I was meant to stay here on my last night in Fiji after spending time diving in Kadavu. I had made a reservation on booking.com but was meant to pay when I... More

If you want to experience real Fiji atmosphere, go to this backpacker. All the staff is so friendly and helpful, we felt like part of the family there. I almost cried when we had to leave and in case I will come back, I´ll definately go there again. I agree with everyone here, it´s the best place we´ve ever visited... More

I travel many places in the world, I slept in hundreds of hostels but it's difficult to find something like the Bamboo Backpackers in Nadi. First of all the incredible hospitality of the Fijian people is priceless: they are genuine, caring, always helpful and they really want you to enjoy your stay without trying to rip you off or to...

We stayed in bamboo for three nights upon arriving in Fiji. Everyone was rather friendly, accommodation was basic but adequate for the price paid. We had a lovely stay and the people made the stay for us. Good stop before going to the islands. However, we were rather angered and upset to find out that we had been left out... More
