Bamboo is a good place if your traveling alone. The boys working there will make you feel right at home. Big Bon Fires there the whole week I was there. Singing around the fire. Dancing too. Very close to all the night life in Nadi. Fiji Pro was going on when we where there. We met a sailor without a... More

Stayed in a mixed dorm room and the bunks were pretty noisey, creaked a lot! BUT the bed itself was really comfy. But that's budget for you. The staff are really friendly. The restaurant has a really nice atmosphere and you can dine out with your feet in the sand. I ended up staying in Smugglers after, which in my... More

Great to meet other travellers. Clean. Nice cafe, good food and reasonably priced. Beach not really swimmable but a good place to spend a night or two when off to other places. Best spot to stay if in Nadi.

Overall a great place to use as your launchpad into Fiji (if you're travelling Fiji look up the bula pass which is helpful for the yasawas). It is a nice hostel with decent rooms, OK bathrooms, a free airport transfer service, and also a cool bar/restaurant that means you can eat and drink until late whilst sitting on the beach... More

We came across Bamboo when we were staying at Smugglers Cove down the road. We wanted to go somewhere different for dinner, as the food at Smugglers was overpriced, so we wandered down the beach and came across Bamboo - oh my goodness, I'm so glad we did! The food is excellent and for a great price. There are places... More

Bula Clarey, Thanks for the feedback and apologies for the cons you experienced. Our Reservations Team got a bit mixed up between your 2 bookings and it seems our Airport Team has gone to pick you up at 00:20 1 day early.. So sorry. Will not let that happen again! In any case, please note that our front desk team... More

What a great place in a great location on Nadi bay. Even though it is classed as a backpackers, as 50 + travellers we found it terrific. Good atmosphere, good food, reasonable drink prices, local bus stop right out the front - what more do you need!

The location is central, plus they have free airport transfer to the hostel. I stayed in the female dorm which was by the pool and bar so noisy until around midnight.
