Hostels in Haikou, Hainan, Haikou Banana Hostel

Hostels in Haikou: Banana Hostel – Member of Hostelling International.

Banana Hostel is Haikou’s go-to for tourists and local expats (try the pizza and you’ll understand.) Tucked away off of the very busy asphalt that is Renmin Avenue, the first thing you’ll notice about the hostel, and the immediate surrounding area, is the quiet.

Stepping inside the hostel through the garden courtyard, you’ll find a staff that are friendly, attentive, and not only willing, but proud to share knowledge of their city and Tropical Hainanisland with you.

The hostel has a wide variety of room styles; from 8-bed dorms to single private rooms; to choose from. All rooms are clean, spacious, have free Wi-Fi, and contain ensuite toilet and showers, and, most importantly, every room has free air conditioning, which is a must in the tropical heat.

Head back downstairs to the restaurant if you are hungry, or chill out in the courtyard with an Anchor beer and have a chat with one of the many or tourists, or, of you feel up for it, challenge one of the locals to a game of ping-pong or pool in the common area of the hostel, also on the first floor.

Haikou Banana Youth Hostel has been an institution in Haikou for as long as I remember, and, as a result of their dedication to excellence, continue to be the go-to destination for locals, tourists, and expats, and is a great place to begin your journey on the Hainan Trail.
