Man I loved this place straight away so much I keep coming back every year now! Found my paradise! The great thing that sets this place apart from similar places is that it is part of a local Fijian village, so you really get the best of both worlds, all the usual cool backpacker benefits, like day trips to other...

My friends stayed in this hostel and i vistited them the whole day because it was the best atmosphere you could have in a hostel! The staff is super nice and everybody is welcomed even if you stay in the other hotels/hostels. The activities are funny and make the day even better! The beach is better than in Ratu Kinis!...

One of the best experience of the hole Fijian trip. The hostel is on the beach and on village so it allow you to know better the Fijian life and culture. The people who works there I was just awsome. The organise every night some event like fire show or a crab race. The people from the other resorts and... More

Before I start on this place it's worth saying that I have travelled to far poorer countries than Fiji and I've never stayed in a place that's such poor value for money. Those travellers coming from south east Asia are especially in for a shock. What you end up with here is a badly maintained shack with broken toilets, dirty... More

We spent 4 nights in Mana Lagoon Backpackers and we found really well. The staff Who works in the hostel is lovely: they are always keen to involve you in different activities (snorkeling, coconut jewels making, fijian lessons, kayaking, fishing, visiting village and his school, fire dance, volleyball) and teach you about the proper fijian culture. We stayed in a... More

My boyfriend and I booked a 7 night stay on Mana Island and cant express how much we reccomend this area to other backpackers. It's pure paradise! If you make the arrangements in Nadi through one of the travel agents (we went to a lady who worked at Bamboo Hostel) you get your last nights stay free, so don't book... More

I can't agree with most reviews. Of course it is very basic but compared to other hostels it is so much better. I.e. it's better than the white sandy resort on yasawas which costs 110 FJD, so you can be happy to get this one for 55 FJD (4 night free). The food was excellent. The beach too. The staff... More

Staff is nice but hostel is very very basic. Every day same food mostly they gave you pancake, rice and noodles in the morning,lunch and dinner. When you asked different food they said no food. I thought this is not respectful. If you paid to food you should get good food at least different food. In the evening very quiet... More

Writing a review for this place is definitely challenging. There's no way around it, the hostel is very basic. The mattresses are super thin and the rooms aren't in the best shape. There is no hot water and there's no electricity during the day. Not what I pictured when thinking about vacationing in Fiji. The thing that saved the trip... More
