I stayed here with a friend a week ago and it was great. Louis, the hostel owner, and the receptionist were both helpful in getting information about how to get around Sanya and make our way to the bus station etc. I couldn't find a Chinese address for the place online, but I'm sure if you emailed the hostel they would email it to you. We took a train in from Haikou and took bus number 4, which stops nearby (we just weren't sure where.) I wrote the phone number down and asked someone to borrow a phone to call the hostel for directions since we weren't sure how to get there. The man who helped us on the bus was very nice, and the hostel was helpful in making sure we got there.
We stayed in a 4-bed dorm and everything functioned properly, but the lighting in the room is not the best.
The hostel is in a great location with lots of places to eat and explore nearby. Dadonghai beach is a short walk away and Yalong bay is about an hour bus ride. Taking a taxi to the big bus coach station is also about ten yuan, so it's not far. Bus number 2 also makes it over there. Although we weren't in Sanya for very long because we had to get back to university, it was a great stay.
