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...

I stayed at bamboo hostel in Nadi in January with my husband and a couple of friends. Its a really fun hostel, the first couple of nights we stayed in an 8 person dorm in a building with only one toilet and two showers but that wasn't all that bad considering how many people were in the building. The beds...

I would only use this as a pit stop getting to and from the airport. The accommodation is quite nice and quiet but the beach is an eyesore and nothing like the pictures. The food is expensive for what it is though the staff are really lovely and I did get free airport transfer. I would stay here again en...

When I visited 5 years ago, it was a small Bamboo Hostel, but now, it had expanded into 4 or 5 more hostel buildings, managing or buying out the other hostels. The hostel is well run by the Fijian/Kiwi crew and they are very friendly. The food at the main hostel was pretty darn good and a good price after...

The dorm is great with swimming pools, pool table and table tennis. Also the food from the 24 hour restaurant is amazing!! You can...

I did not stay at the Bamboo, but very often went ther to go on tours with them, to have some food and/ or use the wifi. I experienced that the Bamboo people are really lovely ones and always up for a small talk. The food was really good there and not too expensive. As I went there a lot...

This is the hostel to be at. Such a good vibe, good people, good food. We stayed here for 3 nights, went island hopping and came back to this hostel for a further 2 nights. The staff behind the help desk were superb! They sorted out our Bula Pass tickets and even sorted out my Advanced Padi course on another...
