Sanya Backpackers
Ranked #2 of 260 Speciality Lodging in Sanya
Reviewed 21 August 2013

The hostel is really well-located, 3 mins on foot to the beach. The owners Chris and Linda are super-friendly, very helpful, they manage to create a very family-like atmosphere. And it's the cleanest hostel I've ever been to, their shared bathrooms are sooo clean ) they change bath towels every day, and beach towels are there for free, just behind the reception desk. Another perk is the proximity of the bus stop where you can take a bus to the airport for only 5 yuan, and banks with ATMs that accept foreign cards, and lots of small Chinese cafes where you can have a tasty meal under 30 rmb.

A very comfy cozy hostel at a great price range. The hosts Linda and Chris are fluent in English as well as Chinese and are very friendly and helpful. The hostel's bar has good deals and big drinks, situated in a little leafy courtyard that's great to sit at and chill with other backpackers at night. Also, the hostel mascot Mimi, an adorable puppy, is always at your feet chilling out and looking for scraps. Club rules however require that you don't get Mimi drunk.

Had a great time, will def stay there again next time I'm through Sanya.

When you are looking for a place to stay in Sanya, then i just can truly recommend chris's, linda's and for sure mimi's hostel :). The time there was more than awesome! It all begun at the arriving, because chris was sitting outside with other guests and welcomed us so friendly, introduced us immediately to the other guys and gave us a party recommendation for the evening. Through that we got easily in contact with the other guests at our stay, which sweetened the whole experience. I also took surf lessons from chris, which were very practical oriented, which was my kind of taste. As a German i like regulation and I think that is the big advantage of Chris leadership style, he has some rules and you should obey them because it guarantees a good living together.

So to put it all in a nutshell, i really recommend you to stay here! You will certainly not regret it!

Second time back - 1st time was in 2012, and the place was excellent. I came back a year later and the place was even better. Chris and Linda, the owners of the hostel are excellent hosts and will help you with anything you need. They both speak English which makes checking into the hostel and also asking for local advice a breeze. Rooms are clean and made up every morning when you leave. It's a quick walk down to the beach, there is a newly opened bar (new since my last time here in 2012) which had great prices for drinks and a good selection. I will be back many more times in the future.

Chris and his staff are so lovely, they made the stay in Sanya so enjoyable. Clean rooms, clean towels, air conditioning, good food. All the staff were really helpful and getting clean beach towels and beach mats every day was a lovely touch. I'd definitely recommend this place to anyone wanting a great value place to stay in Hainan. £30 for 3 nights! Awesome.

This is a wonderful hostel! The owner Chris is very willing to help guests navigate Sanya. He even led my friends and I to a restaurant and helped us order. Ask about anything that you want to do in Sanya and your questions will be answered. The hostel is extremely clean and the rooms and beds are swept and cleaned daily. Sanya Backpackers has a very warm and friendly atmosphere that will surely make you feel welcome ;D
