“We love Fiji”
Reviewed April 13, 2012

The rooms here are lovely, beds are extremely comfy. Staff are so friendly and helpful, its a lovely place, we would definitely come here again. Dave was so kind and helpful to us when we had problems with the ATM, he booked us onto Mana Island and let us pay part of it when we got back, he is a very kind person and don't know what we would have done without him!!! Thank you!

Room Tip: we were in 216 and it was perfect for us, double bed with our own bathroom, fan and air con.

This backpackers is very very good value for its low low price. It is not fancy. We did NOT find the problems given by other reviewers. It is a basic backpakers. Our room did not have a fridge, but we are happy with "no frills" We found our room extremely clean - the ensuite bathroom was scrubbed to a shining white. The main advantage is the central location to Nadi - the market is a few minutes away, the bus stops also a few minutes walk. Its close to all Nadi town restaurants. The hotel owners are pleasant and helpful, and are keen to improve and have plans for extensions and upgrades. They provide airport transfers on request; there is internet. The breakfast is basic. Our room did have some noise from the disco, but it did not interfere with sleep. Security into the complex was excellent - by camera and security officer. So .. basic but just what we wanted at Nadi.

Overall place seemed quite dirty and extremely noisy. No place to eat or cook and no fridge in the room. Only way to eat seemed to go out all the time.
Bed was extremely hard and was bitten several times by bugs. Room did not appear to be cleaned before I checked in as there was rubbish left behind. Only on my second last day there did they ask if I wanted fresh towels.
Staff kept trying to sell me 'tours' at outrageous prices. When I asked about going to Suva (the capital, 4 hours away) they wanted to charge me $250. Yet there is a local bus that goes there every hour for $15!
Aslo this place is nowhere near the beach and did not particuairly feel safe at night

The first impression at Nadi Downtown Backpackers is not exactly the best, and the really should improve the look of that reception. I stayed at a single bedroom with a/c, and I can't say the rate was cheap, but it's in accordance with the local average. The best thing about this hostel is the location, right on the main street.
Important to say: internet is not free, you can sit at their shared computers but once you spend 20 mins, someone comes to say you have to pay if you want to stay longer. Buy a local sim card from Digicel, if you have mobile modem and use your own laptop in your bedroom.
Free airport transfer is subject to how many people they will be taking. If you're on your own, they won't send a car there with just one passenger.
I would come back here, as the options are much worse.

Room Tip: Check for roaches before paying.

This place is a -------- don't go here! There were bugs in the bathroom like cockroaches, spiders, flies... The bed was rock solid and the bathroom door didn't have a handle/lock. They gave us 1 towel for a 3 bed room. When we checked out at 5am to get the free airport shuttle we found the receptionist and the other lady who works there asleep in the office...strange.

Room Tip: Don't go here

The Nadi backpackers inn had a great commercial at the airport with free pickup service. We evaluated that a stay here on a simple double room was better than a cheap resort because of prices. On their "about us" section they seem ideal for a backpacker. They even had "free internet" and private rooms from 30$ or so, but we ended up paying 65$ because it was per person.
They say that they are an " ideal home base for travelers while exploring" and if you are looking to explore getting mugged or buy drugs on the dirty streets of Nadi, that is very true. One of the local drug-dealers came up to us right outside the hostel and offered us a taxi, drugs and he also gave us friendly advice how not to get robbed and he also told us that we had to pay at least 4x the value of prices on restaurants because we are white. Nadi is a one-street s***hole and the hostel is conveniently located right in the middle of it. The "free internet" was only valid for 10 minutes and with the slow speed they offered it would not be enough to write a bad review on tripadvisor without paying for at least one hour. They also charge a low but incredible detailed and annoying price of 5$ for one hour, 10$ for 6 hours and a few other complicated options depending if you wore using wireless or a plug and also it was something about where on the house you wanted to use it. The taped up Pool-table was a 2$ extra charge, breakfast was poor (two slices of white bread with some kind of horrible jam, a shot-glass of watery juice and a weak cup of tea or coffee....)

Our "luxury double room" needed a new layer of paint, a doorknob on the incredible small bathroom`s door, a fan that does not sound like an attack helicopter, soundproofing (it was like we wore partying with the neighbors when we wanted to sleep), some fire safe electrics work (not tape on wires) and a few towels, a TV AND WIRELESS SIGNALS! I hate to pay for internet and get confined to the reception area.

Once the boss figured out that I was going to write a review here he got all scared and tried to charm us in to writing something nice by giving us 40% off on the next stay and showed us plans on how the place will look like in a year or so. When he tried to show me hes great reviews here the first headline was "horrible place run away from it", haha! The boss himself is a nice guy, but and old Indian guy working there would constantly try to tell us how to spend our vacation and he tried to plan our days by booking things through him or he would lure in the corners behind us. It was kind of annoying that he was spying on us like a predator when we tried to find a decent place to stay.

But if you decide to go, make sure to read the tips about how to handle the con-men that is painted on the door who leads out to the streets.

Room Tip: To get the best room, try to book at another place ;)
