This is a very nice hostel located on a quiet side street 5 minutes from the beach in Sanya. Other beaches are very easily accessible from a nearby bus stop. Our double room was very clean, nicely decorated and with air con. No safe though.
The ensuite was a bit small (phone-box-sized with the shower, sink and toilet all in one) but the water was warm and nice towels were provided.
There is a bar area and pool table.
We felt that the hostel must have changed hands since the Lonely Planet visited, as the Singaporean couple mentioned were nowhere to be seen and there was no scuba diving at all. There is a separate excursion company who have a stand in the bar area but the activity list was all in Chinese and they just seemed to be a selection of water sports. Recommended due to good location and rooms, but expect to have to put the effort in yourself to find things to do.

Sanya Backpackers is a great place to stay. Ava and Leo, the owners, are friendly and hung out with us in the bar area one night just drinking beers. They gave us good advice: ignore all the tourist traps and just enjoy the beach. The hostel is squeaky clean because they don't allow shoes inside and have regular cleaning staff. My buddy and I stayed in the big dorm room - each bed came with a curtain, nice for privacy. A close enough walk to the beach or bus stop, which can take you to the airport or lovely Yalong Bay. There is a drinking/eating area right outside the hostel, a good place to meet and chat with fellow backpackers.

Stayed here twice a few years ago and have recommended friends stay here since. Chris and Linda were great - laid back but very helpful. Place is spotless and location is priceless. Looking to come back at the end of the summer (:

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.
