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...

Took me 47 hours to get here from Guangzhou (typhoon getting in the way; Glasgow to Pitcairn might have been quicker) but who cares now. Ena, Maggie, Seven & Fiona - lovely friendly staff - the comfy rooms, the chilled out 'surf-buddy' courtyard with bar&pool, palmfringely tucked into a nice quiet alleyway just steps from noodleshops, minimarts, bars (e.g. Dolphins...

I stayed here for a couple of nights in a single room - it was clean and not too cramped with a small sofa and coffee table which was a nice touch. The overall feel of the place is awesome and laid back with surfboard stall to greet you on entrance and a nice bar area with a pool table....

We spent 5 nights in this hostel, in a 8 bedrooms room. The first two nights there was a typhoon, so we run out of electricity (but i guess is normal). From the third day, only our room was without electricity and we have to ask many times to the staff to do something. Finally at the end they changed...

This is a very nice hostel located on a quiet side street 5 minutes from the beach in Sanya. Other beaches are very easily accessible from a nearby bus stop. Our double room was very clean, nicely decorated and with air con. No safe though. The ensuite was a bit small (phone-box-sized with the shower, sink and toilet all in...

Sanya Backpackers is a great place to stay. Ava and Leo, the owners, are friendly and hung out with us in the bar area one night just drinking beers. They gave us good advice: ignore all the tourist traps and just enjoy the beach. The hostel is squeaky clean because they don't allow shoes inside and have regular cleaning staff....

Stayed here twice a few years ago and have recommended friends stay here since. Chris and Linda were great - laid back but very helpful. Place is spotless and location is priceless. Looking to come back at the end of the summer (:

“Best to get a suite with a bathroom. The one with a balcony is best value for money.”
  • Housekeeping staff :D
  • I brought bottled water from convenience store to make tea. I don't trust the water pipes here.
