Came out to mana island to get a little piece och Fiji paradise before the cyclone pam was about to hit. Booked the cheapest hostel because I was told that there was a huge difference in price compared to the other backpacker place. Came out and realised that the other backpacker place was just 10 dollars (Fiji) more a night... More

The spot of the hostel is absolutely great: right at the clear blue sea and lovely beach. I slept in a dorm with six beds. I ended up having at least hundred bites because of bedbugs. I had steins in my sheets. The matrasses were so thin that you could feel the wooden bottom of the bed. The staff was... More

I had a pretty terrible experience at this hostel which was shared with my fellow guests. It was very dirty, badly run, absolutely no atmoshpere and the food was bad. I woke one morning with bed bug bites and bed bug blood on my clothes and on my sheet. We then realised the bed bug blood stains were on pretty... More

A truly awful experience, do not be tempted by the relatively low price, this is a dirty, poorly run and hugely unpleasant place to visit. Our room was dark and stank of urine. Toilet seat broken, ceiling caving in, bed filthy and also with the stench of urine. The food is terrible, plated up all at once and left going... More

The hostel is situated right next to the beautiful beach. Staff is friendly and food is all right. This could be a very attractive and enjoyable place to stay, if there were not those big troubles we noticed during our stay. A man who works in the hostel stole money from the credit cards of young travellers, and got lost... More

I am writing a review as honestly as I can, based on what I was told and what I witnessed at this backpackers. The backpackers does not deserve 5/10. There are some things you need to be aware of before you visit. There were a number of thefts reported at this resort in the few days I was there. The... More

I had a great time there. The staff is always helpful, funny and chatty. James is the best man of the staff there, he is a so nice person and helps where ever he can. I did a trip to Modriki, where the Castaway movie was made, I really can recommend it. Also the fishing trip was so much fun... More

The island itself is beautiful the locals pick u fresh papaya off the trees and climb the coconut trees to get you fresh coconuts to drink and eat! There is a school and a community running behind it so there is noises in... More
