Prior to arriving in Fiji, I only booked my first night at Bamboo as I was not sure what my plans would be and where they would take me. By the end of my trip I had spent my entire 9 days in Fiji at Bamboo and have no regrets. Not only did I make traveling friends from all over the world that I've made plans to meet up with elsewhere, but I made connections and established relations with the staff and they became my second family.
The hostel is located on the beach next to another hotel, yet it feels isolated and quiet. The rooms are clean and bright, and kept tidy daily by the staff. The hostel has a very "homey" feel in that sense that the dorm doors are not locked and people come and go, yet never did I have a fear for my luggage or valuables. The food is delicious and convenient as the supermarket is a 20 minute walk away, or you could catch the bus the picks up right outside Bamboo. The pool is big and surrounded by lounge chairs for those that enjoy soaking up the Fiji sun. The friendly and helpful staff can help you book any tour, from mud pools to a PADI diving course. Make sure to join in on the Kava circles/jam sessions, it's the easiest way to bond with the guys and meet new hostel guests.
One girl that I met on my last day said that I had missed out on the best parts of Fiji by not making it out to the other islands. However, to me establishing such great relations with the people I met completely made my trip. It's the reason that I will be returning to Fiji and will have another opportunity to visit the islands. All I can say is thank you to everyone at Bamboo that made my solo Fiji trip better than I could ever have imagined! I'll be seeing you soon!
