Two-Night Stay Before We Flew Back To Manila”

I booked this hostel for our two-nights city tour in Yangon after we came from a Bagan. The place is within downtown Yangon and near Sule Pagoda, Chinatown and within walking distance to Bogyoke Aung San Market and Yangon Central Train Station (for the Circular Train experience!) The rooms are clean and private and as well as the shared bathrooms. They have a common room and small breakfast area with unlimited coffee, juice and water refill. They serve lighy breakfast for free - egg and toast or pancakes. We arrived at 8am and the staff were accommodating they let us stay in the common area so we can rest, have access to the internet, shared bathrooms and coffee! There is a mini grocery beside the hostel where I bought my pasalubong - wafers, chocolates, rice cookies, and noodles! You can take a short taxi ride to shwedagon pagoda and kandawgyi lake if you dont want to walk. Will stay here again if I have the chance. 💕

Lot of Hostel for small money”

Located in downtown Yangon the Backpacker Hostel is a small but nice hostel. The space is used pretty intelligent, so you have a dorm with a lots of beds. Sounds at first annoying but each one is a little cabin surrounded by curtain, so that you feel more like on a cruise then in a budget place to stay. The sheets and the room are extremely clean and in good condition. The included breakfast has 2 options, both are tasteful. Only the common area is a bit dark, but you're there to discover the city, so this doesn't really matter.

Perfect new hostel”

This is a brand new hostel located in downtown Yangon. We really loved our two nights here, we could left our backpack here for all day while we went to Golden Rock. Everything in the hostel is brand new, there are many toilets, showers and sinks. Wi-fi works very well and the staff is always keen to help. Very nice and enjoyable stay, well recommended.

A Bargain but Could Still Improve”

I stayed for 6 nights and it was a good experience but it could be better. My room is quite small and nice but it is damp due to lack of airflow and can get smelly sometimes (the smell came from the water control room next to my room). The hostel can do a small adjustment to the room like adding a small ventilation for airflow and redone the wall that separate the room and the water control room. I also would like to suggest that the hostel to provide foot mat in each room and change the bathroom foot mat regularly. For overall the hostel is good. The price is one of the best offer in town because it includes breakfast with different options everyday. Location is great, it is easy to find and many tourist attractions are in walking distance from the hostel. There is a 24hrs convenience store nearby and several local restaurants with reasonable prices also there is a money changer (next to the tea shop in the corner of the street) with one of the best rate in entire Yangon.

Good place to stay”

I stayed in a single room — it was very comfortable. The bathrooms were the cleanest of the hostels in Myanmar I've been to. Staff was super nice and helpful; they let me check-in early without extra charge. (I checked out at 7.00am, and overheard the staff tell a group of travelers that they could check in then. At 7.00am! A few other hostels charge for early check-in.) This will probably be my go-to hostel the next time I'm in Yangon.
