Stayed for a few days! The rooms are clean but if you don't stay in a room facing the beach, your view will be of another building. The ceilings need to be fixed, it's a shame that the air-conditioning can't be left on as its takes a while for the room to cool down, the corridors are much hotter than...

The images are photo-shopped. We had to keep moving rooms because the air-con wouldn't work. TV reception was terrible but luckily we didn't go there to watch TV. free WiFi, what a joke. I bought it from the place next door and it was fabulous! The washers and dryers (only 3 of each) were always out of order. The continental...

The place is not as fancy as the resort we dream about going in Fiji, but it´s so convenient to stay here: the atmosphere is awesome, with a young and adventure crowd, and they offer great options to explore main island and other day tour to the archipelago.

For a hostel I was happy with the services and location. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Tours and transfers were very easy to arrange. My only criticism is that the food was expensive (and I'd only give it a 'pass' mark compared to food elsewhere) which was a shame as the bar/pool area is great!

The entree of garlic prawns is fabulous! The boys who jam on the blue kava mat are also fabulous........ but that is where fabulous ends. Except for the sea front rooms in the main building - rooms are awful, including the sea front rooms in the building next door. The beautiful rooms at the beautiful Gateway Hotel are even cheaper!...

They know all our names and always attentive to every guest's needs. I was apprehensive to leave my things inside my room but I was wrong. These people are very trustworthy.

We stayed here for one night before and after visiting the islands. The food and entertainment was good and the staff were very helpful. The guest rooms and bathrooms were tidy although didn't appear the cleanest. There isn't much around the hotel expect for a couple hotels and a small supermarket, which is good for stocking up before leaving for...
