The room was clean. It had TV, air-con, and own shower which I thought was good considering I only paid 90 rmb. There was a garden at the back was was quiet and I enjoyed reading there. Staff were patient and managed to help despite my limited Chinese. Would go back. Lots of restaurants nearby.

Haikou Banana is a pretty basic hostel. The rooms are small and a bit shabby, but overall they're pretty decent. The wifi connection can be a bit hectic. The staff is helpful although most of them don't speak English. Food is simple and ok. Location is quite good, 10 mn walk from the Clock Tower where you can get buses... More

First time finding the Hostel was a little difficult, go down the small road next to the big black and red restaurant. The location was convenient for food and transport. We tried the street food at the University south gate and evening BBQ. Could walk to the old town and the Baishamen Beach. Pretty good value for money.

Could only stop over there for a day. There was a nice street food market but the hostel was extremely boring. Bathroom was shabby, bad vibe in the common area. Maybe it'd be nicer to go with your own friends because there were really not many people and not many socializing.

I stayed in Banana hostel twice. The first time was in 2011 the second this year (2013) Pros The rooms are clean, cheap and basic. The staff were friendly (although sometimes had difficulty understanding me) The (foreign) owner knows a lot about Hainan and gave me a lot of tips on the best places to cycle. The pizza is mouthwateringly... More

staff helped us exchange money at the local bank because we ran out of CNY. They also had a free map of Haikou on the front desk. Our room was clean enough and had ensuite shower. Hostel was down small road behind a big restaurant. There was a dcs lounge and outdoor terrace.

Stayed there for 4 nights after we got bored of sanya. It is locatd in a quiet alley a little off the main street and is thus very quiet. The room we stayed in (double, top floor) was very big, clean and had AC with good wifi signal. The only thing was the mattrace. It was very hard. If you... More

Trip Advisor Review of Haikou Hostel As always, satisfaction is based in expectations. Banana hostel meets or exceeds all expectations at its price. Really good value at 80RMB/night for a single with air-con and hot water. Everything is very clean. The singles without a/c are the same price as those with a fan, so there is an incentive to reserve... More

In January, we went there for dinner because were told the food was good. My wife tripped on their stair abd was injured. They refused responsibility, and we had to go to court (in CHINA). Their main claim why they were not responsible for her expenses was that they lost their license in 2006, and are operating illegally, so, we... More
