Liked: Great travel advice. Hard to find. Take bus 30 from west bus station. Then get off at Clock tower or at the University and get a taxi. Good travel agent across the street. Front counter staff is a life saver.

Disliked: Could have been cleaner but good for a night or two backpacking. No kitchen.

Liked: The service was very western which is quite a treat in China. The chef made really good food which was nice after a day in the heat and they had hundreds of movies that we could watch while we relaxed.

Backpacking / gap year

Liked: The best thing about this place is the website and the photos on the walls. I also had a native wall hanging in my room which was cool. It is kept clean and tidy.

Disliked: The matresses are hard. The wi-fi dropped out. The noise from the drinking area downstairs carries throughout the hostel. I had high hopes for this place due to the website but felt a little dissappointed. Perhaps it was because it was Chinese New Year it was a little hectic.

Trip Type:
Backpacking / gap year, City break

Liked: Very friendly and helpfull staff. If you are on a tight budget this is a good place to stay since it's cheap and you're also provided with a lot of stuff (for example shampoo) for free.

Disliked: It's is not very clean and looks a little bit runned down. Also it can get very noisy during the night. Notice that there are no western-style bathrooms.

Liked: It is cheap, the staff is friendly and they do have some food which isn't bad. My room was quiet at night. It's also near a bus stop and within walking distance of a park and a beach (although you should take a bus to Holiday Beach), and also a market which is a good place to shop and find tasty food and snacks. They also have some helpful maps of Haikou.

Disliked: My room wasn't ready when I arrived and it was cleaned hastily and perhaps not as well as it would have been done normally. But if you've been traveling cheaply in Asia for awhile, it's probably nothing that would alarm you.
