I always prefer hostels over hotels and I'm really not picky when it comes to cleanness, space, location etc. But this hostel was so disappointing that we left the morning after we arrived - even though we couldn't get our money back for the rest of the days. If you want to try it out either way, I advice you...

We've been in China for five weeks now, and stayed in six different hostels. Most of the recommended by Lonely Planet and they were really good. But this place is by far the worst experience. They have got new owners, apparently, so it's not the Singaporean couple any longer. Room was very small with fungus on the walls. No soap...

The hostel looks great from the road and certainly has 'Curb Appeal '! The bar and staff are likewise great - our room however was not. Upon checking in we where offered an 'upgrade' to a private four bed room as there where 3 of us in our party. When we entered the room we found sheets strewn across the...

To start, I had a wonderful time here and made due. I was expecting a bit more based off reviews, however maybe that is because my group booked the 6 person dorm. We had other friends in private rooms, and they seemed much more comfortable. Take the free shuttle from the airport to the bus terminal/parking lot. Then take bus...

We stayed in the hostel for almost a week, and it has many good things about it. -The rooms are clean and bright! -The location is great. -The price is very reasonable. However, it seems like there were some basic things that were not quite right about the hostel. For example, when we asked if they had a map, they...

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...
