We basically stayed here based on recommendations. The lodge is only a 5 minute walk to the centre and the cinema which is great. However, the rooms are downstairs and very old and grimey. Only some of the bunks have mosquito nets, although they were so dirty I didn't use it anyway. We burned coils all night instead. The wifi is only available between 8 & 8.30 pm which we missed as we were at the cinema! The breakfast is 7am - 9.15, but when we arrived at breakfast at about 8.30 am everything was already made and gone cold. A cold boiled egg, cold pancakes, bread with jam or peanut butter and cold porridge. I wish we had just been told what time breakfast was going to be made and we would have gotten up earlier to eat it while it was warm!! Also, don't expect to sleep here. Noise starts about 7 am with people talking, shouting, stomping around the main house above the rooms. All in all, stay here for 1-2 nights just to see Suva if you're on a budget and then go!
