Everything was great. Maybe the toilet was little bit too small and inconvenient sometimes. But it was clean, really everything! The staff members are just awesome! Thanks a lot!

I've stayed in many hostels in China / Asia and this is one of the better ones. First the personal and attentive service is great. Eva and the other staff emailed us before the visit to ensure we had the address etc, was very helpful throughout the stay, and emailed us when we got home. The hostel its self is nice and clean, room was cleaned every day, fresh towels provided for free (which is very rare for a hostel) and free beach towels and blow up rings etc were provided for the beach.

Best hostel I've stayed in. By far. Fun, welcoming, clean and by the beach. Chris, Linda, Ava and Leon couldn't have been better hosts. Stay here if you're going to Sanya.

It is a very nice hostel, people working there are friendly and very helpful, giving you advice about places to visit and how to get there. It's clean and comfortable, they provide clean towels for the beach and inside slippers. The position is perfect: just a few steps from the beach and the main bars of the town, very close to the bus stop. It has an outside nice bar, where you can meet people, enjoy the relaxed atmosphere and chill out.

Stayed over the new year. staff was extremely nice and accomodating. Three of us stayed in a private three bed with a private bath. It was like staying in a hotel with a better crowd. Bar was fun and the beach only five minutes walk. Couldn't ask for a better hostel visit

Best hostel I've ever been to. And I've been to many. It's very close to the Dadonghai beach, bus stop, loads of restaurants, cheap food stalls. If you are poor you can buy cheap beer in supermarket and bring to the hostels bbq area and drink. They have a very nice bar with bartenders who can make all sorts of drinks. The owners are simply great, so helpful in anything that you need, and they have strict rules that keeps the hostel clean (no shoes inside). If you're going to Sanya, stay here. 万马

Sanya Backpackers is a great Hostel. Every important thing is near by, like restaurants, beach, hospital. The hosts speak fluently english, what is pretty convenient. Also they are very friendly and helpful. I hurt myself at the foot and the host took care of me from bringing to the hospital, over talking with the doctor, to going back to the hostel. They offer also certain trips, depending on what the customers want. I had a lot of fun and I recommend this hostel.

Staying in Sanya Backpackers hostel was a whole new experience for me. Why? Because it is a family business, run with passion and responsibility by it's owners, Linda and Chris. They really take care of their guests, they really host them and create a friendly atmosphere. Our room as well as all the facilities were super-clean. The location is good, close to the beach and relatively quiet. The food is a hostel average and could be improved. The drinks are great taste and good value.
