not the cheapest bargain but chris and his wife help you everywhere they can. may it be for finding a decent eat or getting somewhere. location is literally 5min away from the beach and rooms are very clean.
he knows the spots for watersports and all kind of infos you ask for relating to hainan and sanya!

We had such an amazing time during our stay at Sanya Backpackers hostel.
The hostel is a villa with private double bedroom, family room and dormitory. All the house is very clean and peaceful, even durig the night.
We were not interested in the scoba diving trip or other adventure trips that Cris (the owener) was advertising, but even if you are not into that kind of activities you can still enjoy the beach (just 5 minutes walking distance from the hostel). The hostel also organize a weekly buffet every Saturday to welcome the new guests. For us was a really nice evening and we thanks all the stuff for the food and the company. Can't wait to suggest this place to all my friend !!!!!!!

First of all: Chris and Linda are the best people ever! It sound crazy, but believe me, I am honest about that!
Sanya backpackers is a great place! Lots of good people and just a 2 minute walk to the beach.
The scuba diving of chris is also very good! Rely recommend that one!
So if you are going to sanya, you will be best stay in this hostel and you will have a good good time for sure!!!

We are a dutch family with 2 children of 10 and 11 years old. For the money of ONE family room is a 3-4 star hotel we got 2 separate, impeccably clean, airconditioned double rooms. The owners, Chris and Linda, succeeded very well in giving a personal touch to everybody's stay with sincere, warm attention. Chris gives good advice on what to expect on trips he organises, from diving to inland trips. Free wi-fi worked satisfactory, the children could use the computer room when they wanted. Other quests are mainly western travellers between 23-35 years, but the difference caused us no problems at all.

Very cosy atmosphere. The bathroom was a bit tiny, but that didn't make any sense at all. The price for the belonging quality was very good!

It's the rightest place to be if you want to experience all the best things you can find on Sanya island. Chris and Linda were very much concerned about the fun everyone was having. They were making sure everyone was comfortable and feeling at home.
Rooms are super clean and cozy.
Scuba diving!!!! It's amazing to see how beautiful the world under the water is. You know you're in great hands if you go there with Chris.
Enjoy!
