GPS-enabled map and directions
We are located down an alley on Renmin Avenue (Chinese: Renmin Dadao 人民大道).
We are near to where Renmin Ave and San Lu (海甸三路) cross. On one corner of this crossing there is a Kentucky Fried Chicken. On another corner is a purple China EverBright Bank.
Make sure you are on the same side of the road as the EverBright Bank. Stand outside the bank facing the entrance, then turn to your left. Walk a few metres and you will pass a 24 hour soyamilk restaurant on your right-hand side. Walk a further 20 metres and you will see a red restaurant with ‘Fule Restaurant’ written in English in white letters. Continue a few more metres and the next building is another restaurant. It is black and red and has white Chinese characters on it, it’s called YiJiaYi 壹加壹. (In front of this restaurant is a bus stop. On the opposite side of the road there is an internet bar and a green China Post.)
If facing the black and red YiJiaYi restaurant, you should see the Haikou Banana Hostel sign on your left, pointing behind the restaurant. Haikou Hostel is about 100 metres along the path, behind the restaurant. We are the second villa on the left hand side and have a yellow wall.
Important information if you get a taxi:
Not all taxi drivers know about us, so it is often easier to ask for the Kentucky Fried Chicken (Chinese: KenDaJi) on Renmin Dadao in Haidian Dao.
If you can speak some Chinese all you need to say is:
Haidian Dao, Renmin Dadao, Ken Da Ji.
Another useful tip for dealing with taxi drivers is to give them the Haikou Banana Hostel reception telephone number. The taxi driver can then call the hostel to find directions. So make a note of this number.
Do not expect taxi drivers to be able to speak English!
From Haikou airport:
Haikou airport is around 40 minutes drive from the city centre and Haikou Banana Hostel. There are always many taxis waiting at the airport. Expect to pay 40 - 60 RMB to get to the hostel. Make sure you bargain the price first, or you may end up paying too much. You can often get a better price by waiting at the upstairs departures area and flagging down a taxi that has just dropped someone off at the airport.
Alternatively, take the airport bus to the airport hotel (MinHang BinGuan). Then change to the 19 bus, get off at JingHai HuaYuan on Renmin Ave (near KFC).
From Sea Ports (for buses from mainland):
Xingang Port 15 RMB Taxi
Xiuying Port 30 RMB Taxi
From Haikou train station:
The train station is in the far west of the city, around 20km from the city centre.
You could take a taxi for around 40 RMB.
To get to the Hostel by bus first take the 37 from outside the train station to Haikou Bell Tower, then change to bus 20 to Renmin Dadao (Renmin road). Get off just after KFC and the hostel is on the opposite side of the road.
From South Bus Station (if coming from Sanya or other parts of Hainan):
Taxi costs 25 RMB
