💯🔝👌🏻Ace star hostel is amazing! ❤️We stayed nearly 2 weeks and had great time. All staff is so sweet helpfull and friendly-they made our stay even more beautiful! Highly recommended to everyone who want to have lovely 🆒 stay in Mandalay! Miss you all from Ace star hostel and hopefully we will come to visit you and see you again in future❤️❤️❤️
Good facilities, but staff are STUPID.”
Staff did things like: 1. Cram 8 people into one room, using one toilet, while other rooms were EMPTY. 2. Doing so resulted in me having to use TOP bunk, even though I told them that my health prevented me from climbing the bunk beds. 3. I asked to go to Moustache Brothers. They sent me in tuk-tuk to Marionettes instead. Their English is AWFUL. Unintelligible.
limited access to AC ”
everything is good except for the limited access to AC in dorm rooms during daytime. AC is only switched on between 7PM to 7AM. Management informs guests about this policy beforehand but I hope they do something about it especially during summer / very hot days
Best staff in Myanmar”
The staff here is always friendly and willing to help you with everything. The rooms are kept clean as well.
Quiet when i was there, so place was very clean, recent refurbishment of lobby. Nice view from rooftop where you have a decent breakfast. Fantastic staff, even if one did call me Mr.Bean:) Makings of the best hostel in Mandalay
I checked in on the Christmas Eve, they had a surprised Christmas party for everyone, and each of us has a gift too. it is so kind of the host. the hostel is very clean and staff very friendly and helpful
Great Location Near Train Station+Helpful/Friendly Staff”
The location is perfect for early arrivals/departures as the train station is a short walk. The staff also tried to be as helpful as possible – especially when I messaged on Facebook to plan my trip, albeit some staff have better English skills than others (Most were local university students). They were remodeling the GF into a future coffee shop or wine bar when I stayed there + See Zar Bistro half a block away has an English menu w/ the most popular Burmese dish being “sorry, not available” (the usual pan Asian fare was available). There is an Ocean’s hypermart nearby as well. The place is clean & the Internet mostly worked. The roof has a nice view w/ tea/coffee/breakfast in the morning + free water. Plan to also do laundry here as this is the cheapest place you will find to do it in Myanmar. Only complaints: There are several flights of stairs to the rooms/roof area+the hot water is one of those big water tank setups w/ a switch by the light – meaning it never got hot.
Best hostel I have found in Myanmar ”
I cannot fault this hostel! It was a great price, in a central location just a couple of minutes walk to the train station. The staff were incredibly helpful and friendly. The staff offered a lot of information and even came with me to the train station to buy my ticket. They offered a take away breakfast as I was checking out early. Rooms are clean and tidy with hot showers, lockers and a washing machine for self service laundry. This is the best hostel I have found in Myanmar. I also booked the 3 ancient cities tours through the hostel which was great (although not for the price advertised so enquirer before you book).
This hostel was so good. The staff were amazing. We bombarded one of the guys with about 20 questions and he knew everything, so helpful. Cheep too rent a bicycle close too attractions and a good breakfast. Would totally recommend.
The staff are so helpful! I have stayed here many times and I love it. However, this time there were very few guests. I hope that more people realize what a nice hostel this is and will begin to fill it up!
Not a Hostel, but a FAMILY ! YOU WILL LOVE HERE! ”
Staff in Ace Star definitely the reason I love Myanmar. They wow us for the 2 days 1 night of stay 1. we arrived from Ngwesaung beach > Mandalay , allowed us to check in early (7am) in a rainy day , served with a breakfast of omelette and toast + hot coffee/tea (this already enough to warm my heart) 2. Lady staff named Man san der know our stomach not feeling well,(probably the food and environment is dirty in Yangon a day before). she help us bought a medicine , which help us relief our stomachache 3. Gentleman staff named Moon Shine , chit chat with me at their rooftop while serving us meal. He told me why he like this job , because he feel like a FAMILY when meeting new tourist everyday. When I heard this, I already give this hotel 10/10 score. ATTITUDE DETERMINE EVERYTHING YOU DO. this is why I got the family feel during the stay 4. Before we leave the hostel, the shuttle bus that should arrived at hotel late. we are worried. Gentleman name Phoy, take the initiative to call the bus operator before we even ask him to call. I believe he saw our worried-face in the lobby. His call give us the relief. And we are really sad to leave Mandalay. 10/10 score. P/s: to the owner / management , you need to invest a better horse power A/C, as the 10 bed dorm room is big, 1 A/C will feel not cold. Anyhow I'm okay with the stay. Definitely the reason I would comeback to this town and will ask my friend who going Myanmar next month to stay here.
Dear Chan, Thank you so much for your 10/10 score review for our hostel and I am so pleased to hear that you appraised to my staff for warmly and hospitability . They did their job with heart . We will try to set up the big horse power A/C as soon as possible .Thanks again for your deeply comments to us .
Helpful staff when you got ill”
Booked just 2 nights in a female 10 bed dorm, but stayed for 4 nights, because I got ill. They gave me a free upgrade to a 8 bed mixed dorm and took really good care of me. The rooms are nice and clean.
Wonderful staff, comfy beds, good location”
As always, it's the wonderful staff (thank you Moonshine and Miss Nan) who make all the difference. They were so patient, genuinely warm and helpful. They helped find a good, patient and reliable motorbike driver (BB) who took me around all day in Mandalay for a very reasonable price. Also, the 3 ancient city tour was fabulous, with the most wonderful driver (sorry I forgot his name). They made it easy to overlook the old showers/bathrooms with doors that can't lock; so-so breakfast was minimal, and pretty much the same staff everyday. And I wish the lockers were inside the rooms instead of outside in the hallway, where anyone could have access.
Value for money and good location. Walking distance to Diamond Plaza Mandalay, Chinatown, Railway Station & local product (Mandalay Special Fruits Cream Butter Cake). From hostel to Zegyo Market & Jade Market is only 10 minute by Motorbike. Cost 1000-1500 Kyat Others sight-seeing can share taxi with hostel guest if you are lucky. You can always check with hostel staff, they willing to assist you always. Airport bus can be booked from hostel and provide pick-up. Cost 5000 Kyat.
I decided to book Ace Star is because near railway station. Is easy for me to walk to railway station at 3.30 in the morning to catch my train to Hsipaw. Staff is really friendly although they can't really speak good English but you can feel their effort. Just curious is that from the previous guest review mentioned free laundry & the check-in staff (is a young guys) told me is free laundry as well, but what happened to me is the staff collect 1000 kyat from me. Due to I was rushing for sightseeing so I just paid for it.
Good place, good breakfasts, great staff”
Clean, comfortable, with nice rooftop for nice breakfasts that change day to day and kind, helpful staff. They also organize great day trips to nearby cities, I highly recommend the ancient cities tour to Amarapura, Innwa & Sagaing. Thanks for everything Ace Star!
Kind, Warm, Clean, Cheap....Super awesome!”
Their staffs are super nice and kind! If you have any question about your transportation arrangement, they will kindly provide suggestions to you! And the breakfast on the roof is so nice~A good day should start from a nice breakfast :) The price is very affordable, and they provide high quality experience. I definitely will stay here if I visit Mandalay again:)
cheap and nice”
Hotel is safe and the staff are friendly. when I left early at 5am the hostel gave me 2 bread and a can coffee for breakfast. Hotel is located near Diamond shopping mall with a supermarket that u can buy cheap beers. the hostel do not sell beer so u have to buy from either the supermarket or nearby restaurant. The hostel has a rooftop area that u can hangout and meet other Travellers
