If you are looking to get out of the city and explore the Haikou countryside then this is a great spot to put your head down for the night. Even better, it's situated amongst some of Haikou's oldest villages and major tourist attractions.
The hotel was once an old abandoned primary school, which has now been renovated. It's a cyclist/family hostel more than anything, but also suitable for the single traveller. If you are a cyclist then this is perfect for you.
All around the Shi shan area there are smooth well-signposted roads with lots to see and do including The Volcano park, 72 Caves, Rongtang village, Mei she village, Chunteng village, Xia village and more.
