Awesome hostel! The staff are very kind and helpful, especially Tom who speaks great english! 5 minutes walk to Dadong bay and maybe 10 minutes to the Downtown area. Rooms are clean and good, the dorm beds could be more comfortable but they are okey! Ended up staying 6 nights


Excellent place, highly recommended. The owner runs this place with an extraordinary, genuine and caring hospitality.

Tom is very helpful and an overall nice guy. Rooms are big and clean, they have a nice roof terrace and good breakfast. Location could be better, but it's still more than worth the money. So if you're looking for an inexpensive place as base for trips in and around Sanya I would recommend it.


Great hostel run by a very friendly owner, Tom, who speaks great English and is very helpful. Right next to the fisherman's village which is a great place to get delicious cheap food and but groceries. Little bit of a walk to the beaches but not bad at all. Amazing price for what you get. We ended up staying for 8 days because we enjoyed it so much.


We started with 2 nights to get a feel for Sanya but extended to 4 nights as it was a good base. Tom is absolutely lovely and very helpful with a lot of knowledge about the area. The room was very spacious and clean with good sized, firm beds. The bathroom was clean and performed its purpose. Cheap water, beer and food very much in the backpacker style. Overall it was a lovely stay.

This is a great hostel, right near the da dong hai beach and close to the downtown. The beds are comfortable, the staff very kind and friendly, and it's easy to meet other travelers. They have tours to all the sites, and although I didn't go on them myself, other travelers I met did and they had good things to say about them. My only suggestion to the hostel is to do something about the showers in the bathrooms. The whole rooms gets soaked when you use it. Otherwise, this a great place to stay.
