Room was ok and had a private bathroom. There was lots of travel info plastered over reception walls. Common area was quite large. I enjoyed the DVD room (I like to watch a DVD after traveling for a while). Wi-fi connection was quite fast. They have bikes for rent which we used to explore the old town and to get...

The bedding was dirty and looked like they had not been washed. The towels they gave us had dried stuff on it. The walls are very thin. For the same price, you can get a very clean room at a local hotel. There are many hotels nearby.

The rooms, the services and the location are far bellow the standard of Youth Hostels. You may certainly find a much better local hotel for 10 dollars, only if you have the smallest courage to speak some words in Chinese. This is why most of guests/reviewers are non-Asians.

We only stayed there for one night, so I can't comment about the location. Yet it was pretty hard to find the hostel. We stayed in a room with king size bedroom. The room is quite spacious, but quite empty. There is an air-con in the room, yet it is placed at the far most corner of the room and...

Reading the reviews about this place from hostelworld, i was worried and hesitated and wish there would be a better place to stay, but Banana seemed to be the only feasible choice. It turned out to be acceptable, due to my lower expectations. The location is actually fairly good, despite being far away from the bus station, which is actually...

Nice hostel in a good location in Haikou. Staff is super friendly and helps a lot, especially those people that dont speak chinese (like me). The staff speaks perfect english which really is an exception in Haikou (outside the hostel I had a really hard time communicating). The rooms are big and clean. The price is really fair and there...

Stayed here for a night and had to leave the next day because of typhoon Megi. My random roommates consist of local Chinese who don't know what proper hygiene is. Overall its a good place to socialize at the communal area with other travelers and receptionist Selena was really engaging and friendly!

Me and my friend stayed about 3 days at this hostel. The staff is very nice and the facilities are good. There is a dvd room, which was occupied every evening by the same people, who seem to live there. The room we stayed in was old and smelly (mould), with squat toilet. The bed is very hard. Also there...

Really lovely place to stay. It is in a delightful part of town, the staff are friendly, and the managers speak perfect English. Better yet, they always have a moment to do a little translating or help you make arrangements to visit the rest of the island. Thoughtfulness is the rule always, and it makes being a guest a very...
