After seeing some of the other hostels in Sanya, this is definitely the best location and overall hostel - people from other hostels came over at night to drink at the bar here. The beach is a short walk away and there are plenty of restaurants nearby ranging from noodle shops to Pizza Hut. The girls working here were also especially nice and fun to talk with.

With such a high rating and reading LP we expected an extraordinary hostel. Sad to say, but it wasnt. We stayed in a tiny twin private room, which was two bunkbeds. The tours they offer are for mandarain speakers only. The restaurant was only open when the chef decided to show up. The staff couldnt advice us on where to eat or what to do. The guy running the surf and dive shed was not there any of the days and nor was it possible to get hold of him. Great place to meet fellow backpackers.

I've been to Sanya backpackers two times and will totally stay again. I had surfing lessons with Nick one day and he was awesome, patient, and flexible. Plus, the main receptionist makes a killer latte.

We stayed at Sunshine Hostel as the room we booked at Sanya Backpackers was under renovation. The staff was nice and they guided us to our room in Sunshine Hostel. Sunshine Hostel turned out to be quite nice, beyond expectations actually. The room was very large, with a terrace. Staff didn't speak English, but was still very friendly.

We booked at this hostel because of the rating. And they deserve it! Service is excellent. They were renovating the whole hostel, bit noisy but they warned us and gave adequate service for the trouble: they gave us to a double bed room for the same price of a 6 beds room (initially booked that room)! Clean and calm environment, near Dadonghai beach which is very convenient. The pretty lady helped us a lot. She drew us a beautiful map to a more private beach, xiaodonghai.
