I arrived late around mid-night in Sanya and the owner, Chris, was waiting for me and even helped me to carry the suitcase upstairs. The room I stayed was a bit noisy during the time but I guess there was some kind of construction going on. In addition, the location is very convenient and easy to reach everywhere in the... More

We absolutely loved this place! Host Chris is a great guy! He and his staff were very helpful and genuinely friendly. The room was nice and clean. Everyday fresh linen and towels were there every time we came back to take an afternoon nap. The location is great. The beach is a 5 min of a lazy walk away and... More

The host Chris is one of the nicest guys around, and offers honest advice about the best spots to visit in Sanya and Hainan, and how to avoid the rushes of tourists. The rooms were really clean, with sheets provided every day as well as fresh free towels. I would stay again without hesitation

The hostel was fantastic: clean, convenient and safe. The main front door is kept locked and there is always someone on reception so I felt very safe leaving my things there. After being robbed on the beach, twice, I can highlight from experience the importance of such safety in Sanya! It's a small hostel so if you're looking for a... More

Excellent does not begin to describe Sanya Backpackers. The establishment met and exceeded all of our expectations. From immaculate rooms and friendly staff to a breezy rooftop patio and convenient location, I can't imagine a better place to stay. We stayed for a week and found all we desired and more.

My friend and I stayed here for 1 week, a much deserved break after working in mainland China for 2 months before heading home to the UK. We found the hostel online and booked in based on the excellent reviews it had and were not disappointed! In fact we could not fault this hostel. Chris the owner was fantastic and... More
