Generally this hostel was fine. The guy behind the counter is lovely, not great English but a really nice guy. The room was a bit messy and there is no door to the shower/bathroom. On occasion I could actually see the person using the toilet when I was in bed, probably the most awkward eye contact experience I've ever had ha ha ha ha. The reception is not 24 open 24 hours. Would stay again though.

No English spoken, wrong travel information given with severe consequences......the clueless staff know nothing,dont ask. Room dirty and grotty, cliquey Chinese clientele/staff (i use the term loosely). Great Italian food served with a smile - the only one in the place. Avoid this place, its depressing.......

Nice place. Big room, lots of communal space ( garden area too), restaurant quality food, a bar, and friendly helpful reception staff. Had a nice atmosphere.

My wife and I stayed for a few days in a private double room with ensuite bathroom. The place has a nice common area with TVs, couches and tables to eat or work. Wifi works well. The staff were nice but didn't have answers or a map for our questions. Our room was decent and mostly clean except for a used cotton swab on the floor. A/C was nice, and having an ensuite bathroom was good. The washroom is a combined toilet (squatter) and shower so be careful where you step. Wear ear plugs to sleep.

I'd say it's tough to find Chinese hostels at the same standard as hostels in south east Asia. This place was alright for a night or two. Not many people around but easy enough to navigate from here to some goods sights in Haikou. The breakfast was subpar. We had massive cockroaches in the room & a Chinese style toilet that worked very poorly. Bathrooms were not great so we preferred to use the public one downstairs. Kept our bags for us during the day after we checked out which was nice!

I only stayed for a single night, so there could be much more that I didn't see. The check in took a long time, due to the large group I was traveling with. They were able to upgrade the girls to private rooms with very little hassle. There was a very good breakfast offered, with several options.

The hostel is hiding in a residential areas , but the direction are very clear , updated and pleasant to follow. They have very big spaces downstairs. There are also a big garden with bamboos , tropical banana trees and a water pond with turtles and a cat fish. They have really nice pizzas there. Tuna pizza. Like that old saying - " Being there is everything !"
