Finding The Best Budget Haikou Hotel
The Haikou Youth Hostel is our top pick. At $5.86USD a night for a Private Double room, there is a lot given for very little.
The Haikou Youth Hostel is located just opposite the ferry terminal in Binhai Garden (Bin Hai Hua Yuan) in Haikou city. Beside this Haikou hotel is the Shiji (Century) Bridge, which is next to the Haidian river and Haikou Harbour.
It'll cost you ¥50RMB ($7.32USD) to get from the Haikou Train Station to the Haikou Youth Hostel by taxi. The location is great, rooms are clean with internet access in each of them. A small place though so it's a good idea to book in advance.
It's $5.85USD per night for a shared room and $10.25USD a night for a private room.
The Haikou Banana hostel is located on the North side of Haikou City.
It's a ¥40RMB taxi ride from the Train Station which is an awesome area and therefore this is one of the best located Haikou hotels in the city.
It's close to the beaches as well as local transport connections you'll need for getting around the city. Not to mention the good restaurants in the area (I counted the Kentucky Fried Chicken across the road!).
If you believe that grace and kindness in the people around you is a big part of your ability to have a good time then The Haikou Banana hostel is a great Hotel for you.
Great staff, clean rooms and good amenities compared to another Hotel. A Private Double Ensuite will cost you only $5.86USD a night and .59 Cents to reserve a room online.
It'll cost you ¥40RMB to get to The Jaja Inn from the train station, so this hotel is located about 8min drive away from the center of Haikou city.
It's very near to Bar Street where a lot of pubs can be found. You could easily wander home drunk with no problems.
The Jaja Inn & Apartment Rental is not super close to the beaches. Don't bother trying to walk to the beaches because it is too far to walk comfortably.
The rooms are Big, bright and Clean. Each room is also equipped with its own cooker and small kitchen. If you are someone who needs to cook then The Jaja Inn & Apartment Rental is one of a few Haikou hotels that allows you to do that.
Every room has a private bathroom, big balcony & free internet. Quite a lot to offer for such a budget hotel.
Rooms are $5.71USD a night for a Private Single Ensuite and $9.66USD for the Luxury Ensuite in case you are on your honeymoon.
My Biggest complaints were that the outside areas of the building are not well lit and pretty damn dirty as well. Also lift #7 is Not the most beautiful thing you'll ever see.
The Best Mid to High Range Haikou Hotels in Haikou City
Here is some style in a Haikou hotel for you.
The Hainan Xinyuan Hot Spring Hotel is a 4-star hotel that provides natural hot spring water in each of its 351 rooms. It's also got Internet access in the rooms as well as Karaoke rooms downstairs in case you need to belt out a tune that nobody wants to listen to.
Hainan Xinyuan Hot Spring Hotel is located near the center of Haikou city, on the Almy East Haixiu Road. It's a little more than a 5min drive in a taxi from the central train station.
Did I forget to mention that this hotel also has a bar, restaurant, sauna room, spa, and a 300-capacity conference hall with translation systems.
Sounds expensive but a Private Double Ensuite starts at $21.80USD a night and runs up to $57.64USD a night if you need a Luxury Executive Room ( Double Bed).
