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

Stayed here twice a few years ago and have recommended friends stay here since. Chris and Linda were great - laid back but very helpful. Place is spotless and location is priceless. Looking to come back at the end of the summer (:

We stayed here for 4 nights in a private room. We were lucky enough to have a small private balcony which was a nice addition we didn't know about. The staff are very friendly and knowledgeable. The hostel provides a 'pour your own' bar and has a nice rule of taking your shoes off at the front door before you... More

Easy to get to, nice beach, reasonably priced, clean, friendly and knowledgable staff. Plenty of restaurants and bars around, they offer snorkeling and PADI courses. Next time i go to Sanya i'd stay at this place, rather than a hotel.

After some unfortunate business with the hostel we'd originally booked, we discovered Sanya Backpackers. We were so, so lucky that Sanya Backpackers had rooms available and were willing to help us out. The location is amazing- it's about a three minute walk to the beach and there's several great restaurants nearby. The staff are all super friendly and willing to... More

We've been staying here for two solid weeks and I must note that we're loving this place. The hosts, Chris and Linda, are genuinely full of hospitality, unequivocal friendliness, support and honesty that all tenants definitely need upon their aarrival Not only you get the sense of feeling like home but also that you're a family member.
