At £4 a night on a sunny island you can't beat the price! The hostel was peaceful, it was what we needed to relax and the staff were very helpful and kind. Cleanliness could have been better as the cat was sleeping on a bed in the dorm the sheet didn't get changed but no one was staying in the bed so wasn't a problem. It was close to two beaches and has a lovely rooftop garden to relax in. The internet here is excellent, the best we have experienced in china so far. www.amateurbackpackers.com


Great stay. Highly recommend!


I was quite disappointed..Directions are unclear, wasn't that close to the beach and the staff didn't seem prepared for our booking - we had to change rooms for our second night and the sheets were dirty and beds hard. Be careful with the comments you read on line - the breakfast is not free and average, and there is no swimming pool to use. The area is very noisy as backs on to a 'fishing village'. Don't get the rooms on the road side. However for Hainan in peak season it is good value.


Thanks to Robert and his staff!

Very friendly staff, ask anything to Robert and he'll find a solution. Located close to the sea and to the main tourist area.

One recommendation: update the directions on the webpage, it's not correct and confusing.
