Hostel was in an excellent location; about 4 minutes walk to the beach. There were places to eat around the hostel, and the bus stop was about a 2 minute walk. The hostel was very clean, and the staff was nice. The reception desk closes at midnight so if you are arriving late, you should call/email them and let them know. I arrived after midnight and had emailed them so someone stayed at the desk to let me in my room.

Just had an awesome time there with my boyfriend! The hosts are great! Trips with Insight Adventures are a must. Never seen such a clean hostel. And you'll meet so many nice fellow backpackers from all over the world! Absolutely recommended!

Had a great stay at Sanya Backpackers. Very convenient location, short walk to the beach. Really friendly staff, super helpful. Hostel was very clean, rooms cleaned daily. Food and drink in hostel if you don't feel like going out, but plenty of options nearby. The instant coffee at the hostel is no good, but not a big problem, Starbucks is 5 minutes walk.

This is an awesome hostel! I really enjoyed my stay here and it was a great location next to a gorgeous beach. My only recommendation for the hostel is that they get a First Aid kit for the place. I hurt my foot quite badly on a rock one night and was a bit surprised they didn't have antiseptic, cotton swabs, bandages. Luckily another boarder had a medical bag. Overall I recommend this place!

Great hostel! Cleanest I have been to. The staff are super chill and I had a wonderful time hanging out there. Also, this guy named jack who pretty much lives there gives awesome snorkeling tours.

Had a great stay! Private room was very clean and spacious. Food options were good and reasonably priced. Bar was awesome after a day in the sun to chill and meet other hostel guests. Most of all, the staff was insanely friendly and helpful, especially Ava who was always there to answer questions and provide info about anything an everything, thank so much for a wonderful stay!!

Sanya Backpackers was a great choice for me! The staff was cheerful, and friendly. They were always willing to help and to chat, so I felt at home and I felt like I had known them a long time. They keep the place immaculate, (very clean) and everything was comfortable. No loud parties all night long. I think they were all at the beach.

Very nice hostel in a great location - just a few minutes walk to Dadonghai beach! Very familiar atmosphere - they knew my name from the moment I arrived. Clean, good A/C, fresh towels every day. Couldn't have asked for more. Thanks!

Sanya Backpackers is a great place to stay. Ava and Leo, the owners, are friendly and hung out with us in the bar area one night just drinking beers. They gave us good advice: ignore all the tourist traps and just enjoy the beach. The hostel is squeaky clean because they don't allow shoes inside and have regular cleaning staff. A close enough walk to the beach or bus stop, which can take you to the airport or lovely Yalong Bay. Met some cool people also staying at the hostel, which is a plus.

V ery nice hostel. Close to the beach and with nice extras such as a beach towel you can rent for free. Staff/owners were great, they even took us to karaoke. Very personal, small hostel with a great courtyard and very clean rooms. Would definitely advise to stay here if you go to Sanya.

Me and my friends had a great time at SanyaBackpackers. The Hostel is located 5min from the Beach and you have the opportunity to rent a surfboard. We enjoyed the very friendly Atmosphere with the Staff and relaxed in the evenings having a CubaLibre at the Hostelbar with other foreign people. Having the Chance to visit Sanya again, I choose definetively this Place to stay!- Greets Daniel

Really cool hostel with very friendly staff. I would defiantly recommend the surfing lessons with Chris - try to go with just one other person as you get a lot of attempts to surf. Staff upgraded my room twice and were very helpful when we originally cancelled and then re booked our rooms!! Thanks for the stay. Hope to see you in the future. Alex and Wing x
