Sanya Backpackers
Ranked #1 of 262 Speciality Lodging in Sanya
Reviewed 25 March 2015

We stayed here for 4 nights in a private room. We were lucky enough to have a small private balcony which was a nice addition we didn't know about.

The staff are very friendly and knowledgeable. The hostel provides a 'pour your own' bar and has a nice rule of taking your shoes off at the front door before you go in, making the hostel one of the cleanest I've ever been to.

Location is great with many shops, restaurants and bars near by and of course the beach 5 minutes down the road.

There's even the chance to book surfing lessons, SUP lessons, diving lessons, and day trips from the hostel.

Overall, If i were ever to go back to Sanya, I would definitely stay here again, it has everything!

Room Tip: 3 bed private en-suite comes with a super cool private balcony

Easy to get to, nice beach, reasonably priced, clean, friendly and knowledgable staff.

Plenty of restaurants and bars around, they offer snorkeling and PADI courses.

Next time i go to Sanya i'd stay at this place, rather than a hotel.

Room Tip: single room is a good deal - own bathroom, AC, desk to do work.

After some unfortunate business with the hostel we'd originally booked, we discovered Sanya Backpackers. We were so, so lucky that Sanya Backpackers had rooms available and were willing to help us out. The location is amazing- it's about a three minute walk to the beach and there's several great restaurants nearby. The staff are all super friendly and willing to offer advice/recommendations on anything. Also they have the sweetest, most adorable dog called Mimi. She likes to hang out in the bar area and is very friendly. The bar always has interesting people and is a great place to chill out after a day in the sun.

The rooms are also really nice, we had both a private queen with a bathroom and a private double without a bathroom. Both rooms were very clean and cozy. It can get hot in Sanya, so it's a huge plus that each room has it's own adjustable air conditioner. The owners are very organized and internet savvy. They also have several boards of all the people who have stayed there, they're really fun to look through. I would absolutely stay there again in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: The ones farther away from the bar tend to be quieter.

It was nice to stay at sanya backpackers. It is a quiet place in the middle of the crowded sanya. It is very close from the beach and lot of restaurants. It's practicle to take the bus to go anywhere around. The team of the place is so nice, with always good tips to give you. It was the best place i stayed in hainan.
