A great place for a few days. Well located, but in a local area. Useful shop over the road. The roof terrace is a great feature and the breakfasts are delicious. Most importantly, Tom is exceptionally helpful and friendly from the moment you touchdown in Sanya and can organise most things or activities that you might need. Thanks

The place is fine in every way (nothing spectacular, nothing bad either). Actually, two great things: the rooftop terrace (very chilled for post sightseeing chill), and it is well located and you really get what you pay for. The place is kind of tucked away in a small street >>> quite silent but not easy to find the first time.

This is defenitely one of the best hostels I've seen if not the best. Tom the owner is not just somebody who rent u a room, he is willing to help you with everything. I could call him whenever I wanted with questions. Even my last days in Sanya, which I stayed (unfortunately, booked in advance) in another hotel, he still helped us and we could storage the last day at his hostel. He just really wants you to gave a good time in Sanya and helps whenever he can, which is nowadays rare. Location: 👍!


I spent 5 nights there, the only one in the dorm, quite boring :/ anyway Tom is really great, his tips were extremely helpful to have some good time there even in the total emptiness.
