I really loved my stay at Sanya Backpackers! Nice and clean dorms and private rooms close to the beach. Good place to meet people. Had an excellent bbq with staff, friends of the owners and clients! If I'm ever going back to China, I'll be certain to go back to this place!

With scorching heat in June Sanya, sanyabackpackers is the cozy corner where we feel so relief whenever we enter our room. Staffs are friendly and english spoken.

This is the best ever value you can get for this price for sure - rooms though basic are cleaned every day (fresh bedding, towels etc.) and equipped with TV and aircon, not saying about free wi-fi connection and available for use desktops.

If you're looking to spend time in Sanya, and have not yet booked a hostel, you can stop your search now. Having traveled China for several months, Sanya Backpackers Hostel has set a new high standard not common anywhere, let alone China. At the risk of sounding over-enthusiastic, I can honestly say that I have nothing but praise for the...
