Lots of steps up to the place and a little walk into town. Close to Fiji Museum. The dorm room was okay and reasonably priced. The staff were friendly and looked after my valuables as there are no lockers in the rooms. They have a kitchen if you want to self cater. Suva is not a place you really want... More

Stayed one night for transit. They had had a very busy week, so when we arrived, apparently they had not been able to keep pace with laundering towels or linen. While we were out at dinner, they DID get everything installed int he rooms. DOWNSIDE was getting new towels that hadn't ever been washed, so they still had the residue... More

We stayed a night at the South Seas Private Hotel in Suva, paying for a private bathroom, their most expensive room at $64. Late at night we found we had no hot water. There was a school group staying at the hotel and we thought because of heavy use, the hot water might just have run out. However, we checked... More

We stayed here when in Suva for one night after checking out of the uncharacteristic Best western down the road. This was by far nicer, it had a lot more of a rustic theme, yes the rooms were far more basic, but the smiley staff made up for it as well as the rooms being half the price. The location... More

I have stayed here several times when in Suva. Its very basic but has some class to it. The rooms have not changed since the place was built. It could do with some more powerful fans, a lick of paint and a power supply. The facilites are clean and the kichen and bathroom system works. Friendly staff nice garden The... More

Had some expectations after reading the Lonely Planet guide for Fiji from 2009. I really felt let down when I arrived. The staff was busy with a visitor (I think it was her boyfriend) and barely looked up when we came. She was very unhelpful-- when we asked if she had a map of central Suva, she just said no... More

I have stayed there in 2010 and 2011. One of the staff is great, the other are ok. The biggest complain I have about it is there is NO internet. In Fiji, they should offer free or low cost internet. It is a pain in the butt to go down to Connect Fiji to check emails!

We stayed in Suva for 3 nights (I don't know why!) and this was one of the nicest things about the city. It is an older-style colonial building. The hotel is safe and friendly and has a good kitchen for self-catering. There is also a TV lounge with plenty of seating. We found this place also to be very secure... More

This is not a five-star hotel, obviously. This is an old-style, honest backpacker hostel. Herein you will find a comfortable bed in a secure private room; with clean, shared bathroom facilities; in a safe neighbourhood, conveniently located a pleasant 10 minute stroll from downtown Suva… for a modest $35FJD/night. It is for these reasons that it deserves full-marks. This is... More

The hotel (which should perhaps more accurately be called a hostel) is a mere 15 minute walk into the city centre, so close but not too close to all of the action! The rooms are spotlessly clean, cool (even with just fans) and simple. I stayed in a 4 bed dorm, which I had to myself, which I would say... More
