We had come to Fiji from Samoa and so were maybe not aware that the price for Mana Lagoon Backpackers was in the too cheap to be true catagory. Fortunately we had a great stay at Nananu I Ra before our disaster at Mana but we were still very angry with the tour sales lady for talking us into such... More

Booked a tour to this place from one main Island backpackers. Paid for two days but could not manage it, Moved out after the first night. Dirty dark stuffy hot room with only one window overlooking the main hall where people hang out, sing and watch TV all night long, so it's bloody loud, couldn't sleep at all. There is... More

I wouldn't say I am someone that likes to complain. I have stayed in dirty, infested beds, accept rodents are part of life, have eaten many a bland can of tuna for dinner, slept on plywood beds, lived in darkened rooms, eaten at set times, done nothing all day, paid far more than I should for meals in deserted places...

Bula! I stayed for three nights and ha a amazing time. Very simple accommodation but the people were all amazing. I made great friends and did not meet a unfriendly person. It is very cheap and a beautiful island. They have good options for excursions and the staff were fun and helpful. I would highly recommend anyone going there!

Me and my friend went to Mana Island and stayed at the Mana Lagoon Backpackers. The Hostel is very very basic and simple. You cannot expect any luxurious things! But we had the best time on Mana because the stuff is super nice. They take care of everything! the hostel is located directly in the village so you are meeting... More

The days I spent at Mana Lagoon were some of the best days of my life. Sure it may not be your 5 star resort that some of the other islands have to offer, but there is just something about this place that instantly made me feel at home. The staff go above and beyond to make sure their guest... More

Very simply the people there were incredibly understanding, welcoming, giving, and ready to improve anything at anytime. If you appreciate living in the life of a Fijian this place is for you. Spear fishing, snorkeling, rugby, and island visits only cover some of what we did. Also if your willing to create a fun evening culture everything is at your... More
