It's the rightest place to be if you want to experience all the best things you can find on Sanya island. Chris and Linda were very much concerned about the fun everyone was having. They were making sure everyone was comfortable and feeling at home.
Rooms are super clean and cozy.
Scuba diving!!!! It's amazing to see how beautiful the world under the water is. You know you're in great hands if you go there with Chris.
Enjoy!

Run by Singaporean owner, the place is great because the host is very service oriented. Always helpful, he is quick to offer tips on where to go and places one can visit. The place is kept clean, and fresh towels are provided every day without us asking. The place is also great to hang out and the owner Chris organizes activities through out the week to provide a platform for interaction between the different people lodging there.

If you are in it for a place to stay, Sanya backpackers offers a comfortable and clean accommodation, if you are in it for fun and activities, this is a good place to start off as it is near to the beach (5min walk away) with live bands and cafes. If you are in for a place to chill, this is also a place to go too, as the owner Chris will often relax in the front yard with a beer and chat with the people.

A friendly place with good service. Worth checking this out!

We took a couple of tours with one of the owners, Chris, to a waterfall and a less crowded beach an hour from the hotel. Both tours were great. Got to swim in a waterfall, ride a jetscooter, drive a quad, do some paddle boarding, snorke, and lots more. On top of this Chris is the only english speaking diving instructor in sanya. Great and cheap fun,compared to the other prices in Sanya.

Nice clean place, really close to the beach. The owners are really sweet and helpful. We went on some great tours arranged by the owner, but they where also helpful if you need tips or advise exploring the island on your own...

Got free internet, possibility to buy breakfast and small meals, fried rice, dumplings ect. for a fair amount.

We had a really good time at sanya backpackers

One of the best things about Sanya Backpackers is Chris and his wife Linda. They are super knowledgeable about the area and definitely help to make your stay a great one. The hostel has a very good vibe; it's easy to meet people there.
The hostel is new. It's kept very clean. The dorm rooms are huge. Love the fresh towel every day. Individual lockers. Shower pressure is very good. Western toilets. Only thing that could improve the room is individual bed lamps, but those aren't really necessary. After all, I didn't spend too much time inside and used the bathroom light quite effectively when I didn't want to wake up anyone with the room light.
Great location caps it all off.
