I arrived at Bamboo on the recommendation of a companion who testified that the friends/staff were the nicest people in Fiji. After arriving without a reservation we met Samu and he easily put us into the dorms for the surprising price of 12$ Fijian for each of us. Immediately we connected to the other backpackers who put out a friendly and unaggressive vibe. Although there is a lockbox at the reception we felt very secure leaving our belongings in our room unattended as we spent the night drinking kava and counting stars. The staff joined in educating new arrivals on Fijian customs and generally made it a great experience for the newbies and even myself who had expeirenced a few village stays before. All was quiet at night and I had a great sleep on a clean and comfortable bed, incredible bang for a 12$ buck. If you're still reading this lengthy narrative, this is where it became an amazing experience. After waking up early and getting a great 5$ French toast breakfast I caught the bus to Nadi for a few hours, when I returned to Bamboo I sought out Samu because I had a feeling he'd know how to help me out for organizing a trip the following day. Not only did he get to know me a bit first and spent the time asking me what Id want to do he then Organized an entire days shark diving and encouraged me to do more things for my last few days in Fiji. All in all Bamboo is a top notch hostel that attracts a specific type of backpacker that woshes to get to know Fiji and not waste money in a pretenious resort. in my opinion makes this the number one hostel near Nadi and even in Fiji. Vinaka vaka levu Bamboo!
