Sanya Backpackers
Ranked #1 of 242 Speciality Lodging in Sanya
Reviewed 3 January 2014

Stayed at Sanya backpackers for the second time and was very satisfied once again. Professional and nice staff, very clean, and great Christmas party! Good place to meet foreigners of all nationalities in Sanya as well. The Dadonghai location is also very strategic, two steps from the beach, and very close to the bar street. Thanks again! Xavier

Chris and Linda are excellent English speaking hosts. This hotel is not just for backpackers, but caters to all ages. Our room is excellent, prices for food and drinks are very reasonable. Mimi is adorable. Location is near to the sea and many restaurants.The internet is free and fast. Will stay here again next time in Sanya.

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.
The location, the atmosphere, the owners, the cleanness - all so good. You can borrow beach equipment, e.g. towels and sunshades. Chris prepares trips for the quests and tries to give them the best experience - you won't regret the trip fees! The is the best hostel I have been to. Linda, Chris and Mimi, thank you very much for a wonderful time in Sanya.

Only stayed here one night, but would definitely go back if I ever travel to Sanya again. English-speaking, very nice and helpful staff! Stayed in a double room with shared bathroom, which was clean and nice. Great location too, as well as decently priced.

Chris, Linda and Mimi were excellent hosts. The beach is walking distance and so is Times Square Bar Street and The Dolphin Bar. Rooms were always cleaned and Chris provides you with Rental Bikes and rafts for the beach. They have cool little bar to prepare at.

Room Tip: Spring for the private, value is worth it.

The team is very nice, we felt like home. They give great tip and take care of us. The food is very good, and the mojito amazing! ;)
The room is very clean, but I wish we had a real blanket instead of a kind of towel to sleep.

I will definitely recommand this hostel to friends, it was a very good place to go on vacation!
