“Best Place to Stay in Sanya”
Reviewed September 30, 2011

If you are looking for a great place to stay in Sanya this is it! Chris and Linda are very knowledgeable about Sanya and the Hainan island (not to mention they are nice!). Go scuba diving and get the breakfast! Five star spot at reasonable rates!

Room Tip: Just call a head and talk to Chris. He will get you what you need.

This is one of those hostels where the people definitely make the place - not to say that the place is bad though. But, we chose this hostel based on previous reviews and comments regarding the friendly and helpful staff and we were not let down. The hostel is in an old villa and has a nice feel to it. Good, cheap food available and 2 minutes walk to the beach, which was good even when heaving it down with rain. Accommodated my wife who was 32 weeks pregnant and gave sound advice on appropriate activities to do / not to do. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will go back.

Sanya Backpackers was perfect for us and just what we were looking for. It is centrally located with good seafood/ western restaurants around, a stone throws from Dadonghai beach, quiet enough to relax and also a hub to meet other travelers. We rented a car and went to Nantian hot springs and also went to more remote beaches.Thanks so much for the hospitality and we wish you and Chris all the best.

Thanks to Chris and Linda we had a very good time in Sanya. The service is like in an hotel combined with the flair of a hostel. We can really recommend the adventure trips which they offer!!!! All in all there is nothing to complain and we will recommend to all backpackers. The Breakfast sandwich is delicious :-) Chris and Linda can also recommend very good REstaurants in Sanya . We will come back!!!!

We stayed for about 4 nights at Sanya Backpackers and it was an awesome stay. Chris & Linda are always helpful and gave us a lot of advices, e.g. where we would get the best lunch etc.
The hostel is very, very clean and comfortable and there is nothing negative to say about that hostel! We also have done the snorkeling trip, just an AMAZING trip and I can't imagine, that you will experience such a day for that price (380RMB). A whole day, included banana boat, jet ski, snorkeling, BBQ. Just unforgettable, if you want to stay in Sanya, this hostel should be your first choice!!! Thank you so much Linda & Chris. We will come back soon :)
