We stayed in Sanya for a little over a week. The staff was helpful and friendly. The room was always clean and neat. Trustworthy and reliable owners and management. We had an absolute blast staying here. Food was limited in the restaurant. Great location and day trips can be arranged at the hostel.

We spent a few days at the Backpackers place which we enjoyed very much. The weather is always nice, staff very friendly and room fine. Bathroom was kinda small and could use a renovation though. The location is very convenient since it is a 5 minute walk to the closest beach (Dadongai Bay) Maybe I was expecting to much but... More

Took me 47 hours to get here from Guangzhou (typhoon getting in the way; Glasgow to Pitcairn might have been quicker) but who cares now. Ena, Maggie, Seven & Fiona - lovely friendly staff - the comfy rooms, the chilled out 'surf-buddy' courtyard with bar&pool, palmfringely tucked into a nice quiet alleyway just steps from noodleshops, minimarts, bars (e.g. Dolphins...

This was one of the best places I have ever stayed for how friendly everyone was and this means a great deal to me as a traveller. The rooms are so clean you could eat your dinner off the floor!!!! I cannot thank them enough

I stayed here for a couple of nights in a single room - it was clean and not too cramped with a small sofa and coffee table which was a nice touch. The overall feel of the place is awesome and laid back with surfboard stall to greet you on entrance and a nice bar area with a pool table.... More

We spent 5 nights in this hostel, in a 8 bedrooms room. The first two nights there was a typhoon, so we run out of electricity (but i guess is normal). From the third day, only our room was without electricity and we have to ask many times to the staff to do something. Finally at the end they changed... More

This is a very nice hostel located on a quiet side street 5 minutes from the beach in Sanya. Other beaches are very easily accessible from a nearby bus stop. Our double room was very clean, nicely decorated and with air con. No safe though. The ensuite was a bit small (phone-box-sized with the shower, sink and toilet all in... More

Sanya Backpackers is a great place to stay. Ava and Leo, the owners, are friendly and hung out with us in the bar area one night just drinking beers. They gave us good advice: ignore all the tourist traps and just enjoy the beach. The hostel is squeaky clean because they don't allow shoes inside and have regular cleaning staff.... More
