Haikou Banana Youth Hostel is located on Haidian Island, in the north of Haikou city, Hainan Island. The tropical climate means that Haikou is often at its most bustling in the evening. On an evening on Haidian Island the streets fill up with tropical fruit stalls, outdoor bars, and many small outdoor restaurants selling various local dishes from BBQ’ed seafood to Chao Bing (a favorite snack for a warm evening which consists of the fruit of your choice blended and frozen before your eyes with a special device). There are also many modern outdoor swimming pools and hot. The rest of Haikou City offers many interesting old Hutongs, small temples, fishing ports, beaches, and shopping streets to explore. Haikou is the capital of Hainan Island and is an ideal place to begin any trip within Hainan.

Street Map and Route Planning
Haikou Hostel is located in the North-East of Haikou City. We are on a large island called Haidian Dao (海甸岛).
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.
Do not expect taxi drivers to be able to speak English!
Warning: We have heard about a taxi driver who will tell you that the Haikou Banana Hostel has closed. This is a lie. The taxi driver says this so he can take you to a different hotel where he can earn a commission. If a taxi driver says this to you do not believe him and either insist he takes you to the Banana hostel or find another taxi.
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 West 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):
