I agree with what everyone else has already said, and will add that this is the best hostel I have ever stayed at, anywhere. If I go back to Sanya I will definitely want to stay there again, and it's not only because of the house cat Jennifer :-) You cannot find more helpful and friendly staff anywhere, no matter...

We stayed here for five days in october and had a great time. Our room was the cheapest room we stayed in in China but it was perfect- super clean, comfy. Robert, who manages the hotel, couldn't be more helpful- he was a wonderful host. He also bakes his own bread for breakfast- the best bread we had anywhere in...

One of the best hostels I've been to in Asia! Very cozy and comfortable, perfect for relaxing and taking a break from the hustle of everyday life. Perfectly located near the beach and restaurants but away from the crowds and tourists with a local Chinese village hiding behind it so you can really feel like you are in the middle...

Tom and Robert are amazing. I spent Chinese New Year at Captain's House. The dorm rooms are coed and very comfortable. The staff is great and so kind. Tom hosted a tropical fruit tasting for guest at that hostel (free of charge). The staff at Captain's House made my Holiday truly fantastic. Tom's personal service and dedication to the guests...

Awesome hotel! Very convenient location, just outside dadongbay beach. Beds are clean, toilets are clean, rooms are clean! Staff are very friendly and approachable. Most decent hostel I've ever stayed in. I would definitely choose captain's house again if I were to visit sanya again. the owner should open more hostels in other cities of china!
