Good sized sinlge room with AC, and wifi around the building, although there was difficulty connecting from my room - the wifi in the lobby/ bar was fine though, and it was nice to hang out there anyway. The staff helped organised scooter-hire, too. Within a couple of minutes' walk to the beach, and in the middle of a nice community of convenience stores, souvenier shops and eateries - the alley it branches off of is particularly active for cheap Chinese food - restaurants and street vendors.
I arrived and was greeted by a staff member. He explained to me that the hostel only had male guests at that moment. He asked if I would like to still stay in the hostel, I responded yes. Then after being shown to my room, I entered a room that was very dirty and all beds were being used. The boy who showed me the room said I could just grab a bed. I then returned to lobby to cancel my reservation. I was a little disappointed. They staff member was friendly but things were disorganized.
Atmosphere is incredible, at least with the people who were there when I was. It's run by young travellers who work for board so everything is really relaxed. Rooms are clean and plenty of bathrooms. Also there's a travel agent right next door who can get much lower prices than if you buy direct. Would recommend!
Even though it was low season and typhoon season we had a fantastic time in Sanya (Dadonghai). Some of the staff in the hostel knows english and they're all very helpful. Nice little bar/restaurant offering drinks and food at good value for money. Enjoy amazing beaches and go to Dolphins bar at night to meet locals and expats. Many thanks from Sweden!
