Very good moments in sunshine international youth hostel! I really recommend this place, the staff was really nice, the beach is very closed, everything is perfect!
Awesome place to stay, with incredible nice and helpful staff. I spent my first chinese new year there and really enjoyed the party they had arranged. The beach is really close, so are the small shops and a lot of restaurants. If ever returning to Sanya, I'd definitely stay there again.
Nice staff but hostel located next to nothing but the beach, I advise anyone to go stay in dadonghai which is a very lively neighborhood, or even ... Well anywhere else would be better actually (lover beach café in luhuitou village which I loved or sanya backpackers in Dadonghai). The hostel was not that clean, two good points though: good western mattresses and lockers big enough for a suitcase and more. I'm glad I only stayed there 3 nights.
When we arrived, we were told that they didn't have the beds we booked for the night, so we had to sleep in tents. The girls working at the reception failed to calculate the right amount we had to pay, I had to show them our confirmation e-mail. The room was very dirty, it was not cleaned once during our 12 night stay. Two of us got food poisoning after eating at their restaurant. The sewers in the street were broken and there was waste water on the road. The staff was not kind.
Thank you Ina for all your help when I needed a place to stay in Sanya. Ina made sure I had a bed when they were booked full durning pek season. This hostel is in the best location in Sanya, close to beach, and attractions.
Conveniently Located near sanya bay. Friendly staff and great cocktails. Downside there was no safe for valuables and door handle was broken. Relaxed atmosphere and vibe.
Good vibe and very near to the sea. Staffs are very friendly; Especially Allen, he was very attentive and helpful:)

Helpful personal, really clean rooms, but it was impossible to get breakfast at 9 in the morning, the Chef was always on the way (may be it was only our problem as we are vegetarians and breakfast only from eggs is impossible for us)... Location is ok, but a bit noisy during nighs.
