Excellent”

I was a guest for almost two months and I can tell you that I've loved every moment of my stay. The staff members are friendly, accommodating and look forward to ensuring you have a pleasant stay. The facility is clean and cozy and ran by a lovely family. All beds are prepared with new linens and blankets for new guests, unlike some hotels and hostel who fail to change the blankets after each guest. The free breakfast is good, I enjoyed the daily rotation between two different noodles and fried rice. Along with the main course, they also serve fried eggs, bread, fresh fruit and juice. I can't forget to mention their thoughtful decision to have both, Nutella and peanut butter made available for you to enjoy with your morning toast. 😁 If by any chance you are unable to enjoy the morning breakfast, due to an early morning departure, you can make arrangements with the staff the night before and they will gladly prepare a Nutella or peanut butter sandwich for you to takeaway. The facility is in walking distance to the train station, popular Zegyo (Zay Cho) market and the famous Mandalay restaurant, Shan Ma Ma. It is also located across the street from the cinema (Mega Ace) which occasionally shows both local and international films. Overall, if you are looking for a hostel in a great location, with clean and comfortable beds, air conditioned dorms and private rooms, friendly staff and good breakfast I would highly recommend Downtown @ Mandalay for your stay in Mandalay. #SafeTravels

They give snacks such as fruits and juice when i back from walking around town. Staffs very helpful ”

The buffet breakfast was worth as they served different main menu every day. They also served nutella, peanut butter, honey and jem for toast bread. Many fruits served for breakfast. Overall cleanliness is good and worth for money. All staff very helpful and nice to guest. They allowed me to stay at the lobby after my check out, from night time until next morning to wait my train time to hsipaw on the next morning at 4am. Unfortunately i missed the train because i overslept at the lobby and didn't ask the front desk staff to wake me up before the train schedule. That was my mistake. They also provide a few option of activities to do in mandalay with share cost basis for taxi or by motobike. Overall i love stayed in Downtown @ mandalay and hope to come back again.

Wonderful stay in Mandalay”

Comfy bed, love the big locker and privacy curtains. Plenty of bathrooms to go around, always very clean and strong hot water. WIFI works well. Excellent breakfast with Western & Myanmar options, 24h free coffee/tea, and you are greeted with fruit & juice when you return in the afternoon/evening from exploring. Bicycle rental is very reasonable. Close to many restaurants, movie theatre, and market. Feels very welcoming and the staff is lovely. Postcards and stamps available for purchase too. I extended my stay and would definitely stay at Downtown@Mandalay again.

Start biking!”

Please do rent a scooter and/or bikes while staying in Mandalay. Discovering the surrounding cities by scooter is so much more fun and easier than by tour! And it’s not that difficult nor dangerous. And to discover Mandalay itself, please rent bicycles. It’s easy and fun and you get to see so much more intimate details of the city. The hostel rents out decent bikes and serves good breakfast. It was the first on our trip to serve peanut butter and Nutella! The staff was helpful and kind. Although they didn’t have a water refill station in the shared area, they were kind enough to refill our bottles in their kitchen, so that we didn’t have to buy more plastic then necessary.
