I am tried writing a review here now three times but it still hasn't been posted. I will try again. I went to this hostel at the beginning of Feb and it was the worst experience of my life. When I booked with Mana Rose I asked them for a female dorm, vegetarian food options and expressed a need for... More

some of the time prices and facilities are set up to make you pay, i.e. no water supply have to buy from shop. wifi but for $20 a day (rip off) and a few other things, not much in the way of fans can get very hot. etc. I suggest only paying for accommodation not pre paying food at the... More

Lovely stay- friendly welcoming staff. Everything is much more expensive on the island so get snacks and water before hand! A bottle of water (1.5litres) will cost you $5 Fijian dollars. Food around $20-30 average. Rooms were spacious and clean, bathroom ad toilets were ok. There is a fridge to store our cold stuff. Lots of entertainment in the day... More

We stayed for 10 nights. Paid for a room with air conditioning, took 3 nights to be moved to a room with air conditioning. The room we were in had a dead cockroach on the wall... Lovely. Finally moved to the new room which had air conditioning, decent enough room for the price we paid. Food was great, we were... More

We (family of four with two children being 12 and 13) stayed at the nearby Mana Island resort. We enjoyed most of our dinners at the backpackers. This was a great choice. The food was fresh, the view was excellent, the food arrived promptly and the staff were friendly - especially given the heat. They easily catered for our gluten... More

We ate here for a few meals as another option from the resort. Service was very inconsistent but the food was reasonable and better priced than Mana. Nice beachfront location and an easy walk from the resort. We noticed many people were choosing to eat here. Nothing fancy.

Did not have any place to stay for my first night in Fiji when I arrived. They were very helpful in storing luggage and getting me to and from the airport for a short period of time. The staff were also very kind and trustworthy.

I have been a regular visitor and have watched it evolve from a basic back packer operation to what it is now ..... a pleasant mixture of 4 star beachfront bures and clean dorms. If ever there is the perfect spot to eat seafood this must be it with a surprisingly good kitchen and menu. The activities make for entertaining... More
