Traveling across the world for a long time I have learnt that the level of cleanliness in a hostel/hotel is a reflection of its management. Unfortunately Bamboo was a disappointment. The private rooms were worn and dirty. Hostels dont have to shine but they can always be clean, or cleanish. There was no love in the food, it looked and...

This hostel is pretty cool, the first thing that helps out is the FREE airport p/u that does make it easier if only all hostels and hotels would have this service. I didn't know what to expect most reviews were good but you never know, the first thing is that most of the staff is very nice and try to...

I spent 6 nights at Bamboo after originally only booking for one night. I decided it was my cheapest option (private room with air con and bathroom approx £32 per night) and close enough to Port Denereau that I could visit the more exotic shoreline on day-trips. There was a small pool, decking and beach area with about 15 sunbeds...

Bula Kozy, Thank you for the nice comments and big apologies for the unusual incident. As a result of your feedback we have set a challenge to our bar team to drop our coconut price to F$4 and sell 10 fresh coconuts everyday. The challenge is going really well and everyone is happy. Our barmen have also had a good...

The tropic part of Bamboo includes upgraded hostel rooms and a Budget hotel...we stayed in a beachfront ocean view hotel room ($125 per night Fijian) and we would class it as a 3 star but definitely clean and secure. The food was good and affordable, plus there is easy access to Nadi with bus or cabs. The best part about...

We stayed here on and off for three months. The staff are accommodating, friendly and great fun. The accommodation is basic but clean, the showers are warm, the food is incredible (always cooked fresh) and there is a wonderful variety. Best breakfast, lunch and dinner around. The hostel offers reasonable day trips to various places such as Cloud 9, mud...
