8.0.Very good.
  • 4.0.Fair

    Only a couple of people from the staff are avtually friendly and willing to help. All the rest just want your money and push you to buy their tours, which are super overpriced. Also, our room had bed bugs, they had to move us to different rooms twice. Waiting time everytime you order breakfast/lunch/dinner is of 1 hour. Other than that, some of them are friendly and helpful like mentioned above.

    Cheap is no excuse for dirty

    Staff were amazing so friendly. 4 share hostel room was comfortable and clean with power points and a small light for each bunk which was convenient. BUT..........the bathroom was horrendous! Filth and mould everywhere just so unhygienic. Never again.

    I tried to postpone my trip due to a medical emergency. I contacted Expedia who tried to contact the hotel to arrange a postponement, but nobody answered the phone for 24 hours! So I didn't check in at all!

  • 8.0.Very good

    I enjoyed my stay. My only complaints would be : plenty of staff but I still noticed litter about and no one bothering to clean it. Staff yelling to each other for no reason what so ever. The food needs more condiments ..butter, cream, sauce , otherwise good food. They need to clean up the water/creek/drain area at the beach on the south side, seriously it is not healthy or picturesque. But for the money this hotel is very good.

    Room for Improvement

    Too many obstacles where injuries could occur, yes cheap however it has too many dangerous uneven surfaces and is dirty both which could easily be fixed and remain an economical place to stay.

    Feeling like home, authentic backpacker

    The free airport-shuttle was very comfortable, the pre-booking was easy. We had a warm welcome from the whole stuff. everybodey was lovely all the time and did their best to provide us with everything we needed. We always got helpful information. the kitchen-staff does a great job, yummi food, afordable prices, godd portions. The free activities and kawa-cercle are amazing. Tax does by far more than you could expect to entertain and inform you about so many local subjects. She knows how to bring peolple together and gives you a great feeling with her never ending happyness. She`s a talented singer and handicrafter as well. We felt like being with friends. The restaurant and bar are open with seaview, beach-volleyball and kayaking possible. The whole place bostes with traditional backpacker atmosphere. Our room in the attached "Blue Water Lodge" about 100 meters away from the main building was basic but clean and mostely quiet. Some additional hooks or a bord to put your things would be helpful. The shared facilities are very basic but rather clean. Over all: the best place to stay at an afordable price in Fiji.
