Sanya Backpackers is definitely THE HOSTEL to stay in Sanya, China. The room is clean and the service staff is warm and friendly. They had made my vacation in Sanya, a memorable and stressless one.

It really was safe, clean, and comfortable. great service and hospitality, I am sure that you couldn't find a better hostel around, the price was reasonable, and you would be receiving so much more than what you pay! It will be my first choice if I am going to Sanya again!

My wife and I took our 3 year old and 1 year old daughter to Sanya. We were met at the curb and helped with our bags by the owner Chris. The whole staff was prompt, clean and courteous. I wish we could have stayed longer than 5 days. We'll be back. Thanks Chris!

We stayed there for three days and it was raining nonstop. Still we did not regret our stay there and this is mainly due to Chris, the owner of the place. He really takes care of the guests without being pushy. The location of the hotel is great - as long you dont want to be at a lonely place...
