Liked: I liked that it was fresh and friendly. Meeting new people and for the first stay in fiji to the last few days of my travels it was relaxing.

Disliked: Would appreciate to have a shuttle take us to and from the airport, more awareness of the activities, otherwise its pretty good.

Liked: Located next a few other hostels, but this one is more like a small hotel. Rooms are generous and lockers in the room are big enough for a day backpack and all your valuables. Very clean and soap/shampoo/hair dryer provided. Washing facilities ($14 for wash, dry, powder). Pool looks clean. Good (expensive) shop, diving centre, travel desk. You can leave bags in the luggage room while you go to the islands.

Disliked: Staff could be a bit unfriendly at times. Food is double the price (and not as good) as Bamboo Beach two down. Wifi is soooo expensive - $25 for 24 hours (free at Bamboo Beach, $8 for a day at Bamboo lodge).

Liked: the facility and good price.

Disliked: most of the staff didn't smiile or say thank you. we are the one saying thank you to them and even without 'your welcome' as courtesy. They are helpful but need to smile and have a bit of grace and courtesy.

Liked: Room was well fitted out with tea-making/fridge facilities, quiet aircon, great shower. There's a good range of food, helpful tour desk and handy shop. The massage at the spa was professional and therapeutic. It was lively with lots of other travellers but not too noisy or frantic. Beach was clean and good for walking and fresh air.

Disliked: My Garden View room (317) was more like Carpark View hence a bit noisy with people coming and going late night and early morning.There's lots of other rooms though.

Liked: Right on the beach, large room, really really helpful and friendly staff who will do whatever they can to help you-all with a huge smile on their face.

Disliked: Overall good value for money. It's a hostel not a hotel, so its pretty average on the inside. Only complaint was that the rubbish was overflowing on the day I checked in, but it was cleaned the next day.

Liked: Free transfers from the plane and the ferry which made it a convenient to place to stay.

Disliked: Western style food was horrible - stick to the rice dishes or local dishes which were ok.Dont stay here for the beach which is not very nice but this place does serve its purpose as a place to stay on the mainland before and after going to the islands.

Liked: On the Beach, Free Kayaks, Free (very basic) Breakfast

Disliked: It felt like you were pretty much isolated from town. Restaurant staff was friendly but food and drinks way overpriced. Everything is designed to drain more cash out of your pockets like 8 FJDollars for 1 hour Internet, 14 FJDollars for a transfer back to the Airport (crossing the whole Island in a descent Aircon Bus costs 15 FJDollars, just for a reference) Booked the big dorm and had serious health concerns: Very distinct moldy smell, dirty showers, spots on the linen, lockers not working etc etc.Requested to upgrade or get any other kind of room but nothing (only a private room for 145 a night was offered)Reception staff not friendly, especially after complaint about the room...Not recommended!Go to Nadi direct (the beach is nothing special at all at Smugglers) and book your tours (if any) elsewhere, every guesthouse offers them... There is is heaps of other options.
