Great location in Sanya bay, right next to the beach. It was the cheapest hostel we could find during the Chinese new year period, but the room was wonderful and clean. Joe was an amazing host and we chatted about everything, he even gave us directions and ideas on what to see in Sanya, I would definitely recommend this hostel again.


Joe's Seaside Inn is a good hostel if you like to stay close to the beach and Joe whose English is very good is more than happy to help you plan trips and give travel advise. Unfortunately the windows of our room faced a 15 cm distant grey wall, it was not as clean as it could have been and from the bathroom we sometimes got some bad smell. But for that the price compared with other hostels in Sanya is low, the staff is very kind and the location is great.


We had a nice week in this hostel,prices (especially during Chinese New Year ) are good.it is just 2min from beach,30-40 min from airport.near are bus stops.but there are quite a lot of noises from street. hosts are always friendly and ready to help! Room by itself not very big for two,mostly it is just bed.but everything VERY clean.new towels,shampoo every day.the main problem for us - no windows in some rooms,so you all the time need electric light. I will advice to stay in this place !
