After staying in Nadi for some time there were lots backpackers going back and forth from Mana with great stories so I figured I'd check it out and was not disappointed. The beach is second to none. perfect tropical water with heaps of snorkelling right out front of the hostel. The snorkelling on the other side of the island that... More

Fiji is becoming a lot more expensive and when you consider how much you pay for the very very basic rooms without power and water for long periods and basic food it is a shame as you know that the owner on the mainland is making a lot of money!!! However the island is amazing and all the staff make... More

Recommended by one of my friend who where there last year, We booked 11 nights in Mana Lagoon 3 months ago for April.

Effectively the room is not a... More

I went to mana lagoon on a monday, only to stay for 2 days but I liked it so much that I stayed a whole week. As soon as I arrived, the other people that were already at the island joined us and quickly we became a big group. The place is absolutely incredible, and the people are even better.... More

We've never stayed anywhere so dirty. We have so many bites. The manager is on the mainland and once he has your money he is not interested about his guests. We lost out on £200 after leaving earlier because of how filthy it is. The meals are basic, we went hungry. Please do not stay here. I've been travelling around... More

The rooms basic which was to be expected but bed bug blood on the sheets not acceptable if you cant get the stain out the sheets might I suggest new sheets? The bathrooms were... More

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
