Sanya Raintree Backpacker Hostel is amazing! Great view overlooking the river and easy access to everything. Bus routes fully accessible within a few minutes walk in any direction. Very close to Da Dong Hai bay and Sanya Bay. Very clean and amazing hospitality. Their chef will even cook you fish if you bring it to him early in the morning....

The rooms are nice sized, clean, and private, and the staff is extremely helpful. Justin, the manager, will hook you up with some really great day trips, and anything else you need in town. Just ask, and he'll help you....

It's a sensible choice if you won't spend all your money on those 5 star hotels! We choose the double room because it's really cheap, but what we get has far more exceed our expectation!

However the experience that you can get from the super friendly staff is unmatched. Justin and Pablo know all of the best local places to get things like massagers, night clubs, and watersport activities. In addition,...
