I stayed at this backpackers a few months ago and was really disappointed. I was told before going out that the price included free kayak use as well as free snorkelling gear. When I got out to the island I found out they don't even have a kayak and when I went to use the snorkelling gear they charged me. I am used to staying in very basic accommodation and can sleep almost anywhere but the beds in this place were the most uncomfortable beds I have ever slept in. 2 of the 5 days I stayed on this island I was sick from food poisoning and 2 other people got sick as well. The only nice thing I can really say about the place is that they have a nice beach but there are plenty of better options as far as accommodation goes with just as nice of a beach in Fiji. I would not recommend this place to anyone.
