    A bad experience stay”

    Helpful night receptionist and good location.

    Our reservation was for 2 rooms. Upon reservation, we had requested for the 2 rooms to be near to each other as we are travelling with out teenage daughter. Upon checking in, the day receptionist told us the 2 rooms near to each other is not possible. Nevertheless, my husband & I had a room on the 2nd level and our daughter took the single room on the 3rd level. The 1st room we had was smell damp. The attached toilet was right outside the balcony and to my horror, when I flipped over the pillow, more than a dozen of mosquitos flew out. I quickly went down to ask for a room change. The day receptionist gave me another room next to the previous room. This room is slightly better with toilet inside the room. Still has mosquitos but slightly improved after we burned some coil. Did not sleep well in the night as due to smelly pillow. Improved after we bring the pillow to sun the next day. Drainage choke after bath daily. Day receptionist was not friendly and not helpful. Not suitable to work in a youth hostel. The night receptionist is way better making us feel more at home. Overall this hostel really need a major renovation especially with peeling paint in the room, choke drainage and toilet bowl. Need a good housekeeper too as lots need to be done. Internet connection is good.

    Value

    good value, not far from the university. rooms were clean however the taxi driver struggled to find it. and the biggest gripe i had with the place is that they never processed my passport when i arrived. they did not inform the police. this gave me problems later and i was given a warning by the police. so make sure they process you.

    Immaculate and Peaceful”

    A very new facility, the Twinstar is absolutely immaculate, everywhere. It is also situated in a very quiet neighborhood, embedded in a modern residential area, on a secluded lane, just off a high-rise boulevard. There are other quiet back-streets nearby, featuring inexpensive, full-menu local cafe-style restaurants.

    The Twinstar is a short bicycle ride away from Bo Ai Li, the raw and quaint older district teeming with markets, food stalls and life. For me, the bike was an absolute "must" for navigating Haikou and an enjoyable experience. However, despite having a couple of decent bikes, the Twinstar needs to fine-tune them better, e.g., wobbly pedal on one bike, loose seat on another (but easily addressed with a good wrench). Because of limited staff English capabilities of several of the staff, some Chinese language ability will be very important, especially since almost no information is printed in English and a lot of hand waving may be necessary to make your point and requests clear. Still, all the staff seemed pretty good-natured, even if not exactly doting on one's every need. Physical security is not an issue: my suite's spacious balcony is completely and tastefully caged, and the neighborhood seems quite safe and friendly. Other considerations: 1. Bring your own towels, toiletries: except for toilet paper, nothing is provided. 2. Bring your own snacks: Only chilled beverages are provided. Absolutely nothing else 3. Wear sunglasses in your room, since the lighting is typically Asian garish, bluish overhead. 4. Don't worry about burning yourself with hot water: It's only tepidly warm. 5. The suite WIFI is quite reliable. 6. Don't expect much excitement at the hostel or in the neighborhood: The hallmark of both is peace, quiet and cleanliness--in contrast to the livelier, crowded and "raw" tourist-attracting venues. 5. Good luck trying to find the contact info, directions, etc. The confirmation info I received was very limited (in what appeared to be a mostly blank PDF...perhaps a glitch of some sort) and I got nothing from Twinstar as email confirmation, although another tourist said he did. To express the main point in Chinese terms, the Twinstar is "ganjing" and "anjing"---clean and peaceful, two of its main attractions.
