The staff here by which I mean Tom his mum and the nice chinese man are really what make the hostel. Generally in China I have found hostel staff to be very helpful and friendly and this is no exception. Tom and staff are willing to help you sort out whatever you want to do in Sanya and everyones is... More

As a solo traveler, it is my first time writing a review for a place I stayed in, but I had to. This hostel has by far the friendliest staff I have ever met in any hostel/hotel/resort you name it. The place is so lively, with all the plants on the roof (actually a really nice place to chill at... More

Having read so many good words, and the ridiculous prices in China for Spring Festival we took a punt with this hostel. The price, although cheaper than most rivals just did not justify the tag. First things first the owner, Tom, was helpful/friendly and a good guy to be around. He will always try to help when possible - topping... More

We booked a private room with en suite bathroom. This was probably the most helpful and friendly hostel we've ever stayed in. I only wish I can remember the girl who attended to us at check-in. She sorted us out with trips, laundry, took my backpack to somewhere to get cleaned (a woman on a train in Vietnam spilled a... More

This hostel is quite nice, good value for money! The location is convenient, but note that you will have to walk a lot to go downtown or to go to the beach. Captain's house is located at the entrance of the fishing village, in a quiet area (despite the noisy construction that wake you up at 8 in the morning...).... More

Have to agree with all the other reviewers. My mate and I just had a week there, low season, weather hot, but Tom moved us to a cooler room, but the aircons work well; he provided great breakfasts, helpful advice as needed. What a contrast to where we stayed downtown in the city. If you're fit, you can walk over... More

great location in lively area and close to restaurants shops and to the beach I checked in early and could avoid a bed that was broken and bent on a side. The late comers couldn't.. Natural temperature was perfect (just leave windows open for the night). No need to use aircon (it didn't work properly and the first night was... More

I agree with what everyone else has already said, and will add that this is the best hostel I have ever stayed at, anywhere. If I go back to Sanya I will definitely want to stay there again, and it's not only because of the house cat Jennifer :-) You cannot find more helpful and friendly staff anywhere, no matter... More

We stayed here for five days in october and had a great time. Our room was the cheapest room we stayed in in China but it was perfect- super clean, comfy. Robert, who manages the hotel, couldn't be more helpful- he was a wonderful host. He also bakes his own bread for breakfast- the best bread we had anywhere in... More
