Perfect spot in Yangon!”

We loved our stay here in a private room. It’s more than what I would think you’d get for the price point. It’s a bit older, but kept very clean. They even gave us fresh towels each day. It’s centrally located by the Sule Pagoda and makes getting around easy. We took the bus in very late from the airport and were able to make the quick walk over and get checked in. We found the breakfast to be great. They offer a western option, or a rotating Burmese option. The Burmese option was very good each day and the rooftop patio is a beautiful spot to start the day. The WiFi was outstanding and worked well consistently. Very cold AC. The staff are the shining stars of this hostel. They are so accommodating and helpful. They made it so easy to book our onward travel to Hpa An and even arranged our taxi to the bus station. They are all so friendly and helpful. The main team in the office also speak perfect English, so they are great at giving recommendations and sorting things out. We would definitely stay again!

Very good place”

- nice location, easy to walk around and to get to the public buses is few mins walk - very friendly staff will give you good explanation of the city with map and which buses to take - nice breakfast, choose between noodles or toast - bathroom was clean - comfy beds with own plug and light and curtains around - locker in room, don’t need own lock just the key you get - not really a place to meet others, you will see other guests at the reception but it doesnt really have a place to hang out. There is a terrace at the roof but not many people go there I think.
