Backpacker bed and breakfast location is near to Shwezigon Pagoda. They also got provide tour inside Yangon city with reasonable price. Breakfast at rooftop,we can see the view of Yangon city. But the hotel is located at first floor,need to climb up and take lift to the receptionist at second floor.

Happy once again! ”

Started my stay in Myanmar with this hostel and I ended my stay in Myanmar with this too! No doubt the number one choice for backpackers in Yangon. Speedy checkin, helpful staff, proper breakfast, clean bed, walking distance to the heritage trail and Sule Pagoda. Was told that the standard taxi fare to the airport was 8,000kyats (ask around in the neighbourhood and you’ll be quoted 10,000kyats at least) but resourceful staff used grab for my taxi bringing it further down to 6.300kyats. They totally have the interest of their customers at heart! Definitely will re-return!!

cleanliness, comfortable beds, staff

I stayed in Backpacker bed and breakfast 4 nights. Before i came to Myanmar I made some research and didn't expect to find in Yangon so nice place. The hostel is brand new, very clean, air-con rooms, spacious bathroom (in 2bed dorm at least). Dorm beds are very comfortable. The staff are friendly and helpful. I definitely recommend the hostel.

REALLY UNDERrated”

The service, comfort & cleanliness, and the location

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The moment we entered, the staff were very warm and welcoming, even fixing us each a cold and refreshing glass of orange juice :) Checking in & out was a breeze, too! The room was very clean, the air conditioning worked perfectly, the toilet was immaculate... They serve a local breakfast of fried rice with beans, but if you prefer, you could ask for two slices of toast & a fried egg ;) When we needed directions to go out of Downtown Yangon, the staff were exceedingly helpful and tried their best, even going out of their way and calling up their friends for help! This place is nothing short of fantastic & we highly recommend it! Two thumbs way way up!

Good Extras and Friendly Helpful Staff”

I thought the staff was great and went out of their way to be helpful. Did my laundry for free there which was a big plus. Refills of free drinking water too. Breakfast is pretty standard but filling and a choice of three things everyday. One thing though, even though there is a community room/dining room, there did not seem to be that much of a communal feel and interaction with other travelers, as people just seemed to stick to themselves/their own groups---at least during the three days I was there. Would recommend Backpackers for sure when in Yangon...

Clean, comfortable and friendly staffs ”

It's my first time in Yangon, I am so glad that I chose the right Hostel. They provide free unlimited tea, coffee, water and orange juice the whole entire day. Plus, they have really cool roof top to hang out or just to chill. They sell local beers and also food which you can just order at their roof top counter and make the payment in cash only. Good location, mini mart nearby the Hostel, ATM, money changer around the area. Walking distance to 999 Shan Noodles, Chinatown, Sule Pagoda and Bagyoke market. Each room comes with a private bathroom even for the Dorm. Suprisingly, there is a Television in my 4 bed female dorm and the Air con works well too. They provide 1 face towel and a bath towel. Highly recommended ! The view is amazing especially during sunset, it's facing Yangon River. Check-out the 8th floor : )

Don't expect big rooms as this is a backpacker's hostel not a hotel! Localization perfect in the heart of busy downtown. Wonderful rooftop with a downtown view - the only one in Yangon, I've made research. Good social atmosphere. Free tea, coffee and juice anytime you want! Clean room and hot water 24h, wifi much better than Myanmar's average. Place to recommend for those looking for atmosphere rather than apartment.

Great service”

Me and my friend stayed here for two nights. They arrange pickup from the airport. They welcome us with a drink, which for us is the best juice we ever tasted in Myanmar! Hehe. That no matter how tired we were, it always satisfy our thirst. Really. We arrived before checkin time so we waited on the rooftop of the building where you can have a sneak peak of Yangon. Rooms are clean, it may be small for other foreigners, but since we were small as well, our room is just perfect. Location is great and we love the breakfast! They also arrange tours. Just let them know where you want to go. But what we cannot forget about this bnb is the service we get from one guy in the reception. It is during our last day in Myanmar when we arrived from Mandalay, with overnight bus we came in the bnb so early but then, he (this guy I'm referring to) allowed us to check in. We actually book dorm room but he upgraded it to a double room for the same price! Maybe he saw we were tired and wanted to rest and get some sleep. We don't regret staying in this bnb. We will definitely stay here again! Highly recommended!

Exceptional and we are really really love this hostel in Yangon”

This hostel is the last accommodation where we stay during our trip to Myanmar. After reading a lot of good reviews we realize that this is a place for us after a long trip from Mandalay to Yangon, before going to the airport and flight back home. Just stay a few hours but we are so surprised about the way they take care of us. We already send an email to the hostel and let them know that we will check in early on the next day instead of the arrival date as on the booking and they responded so quickly, even at night. It was our first impression of it. Our room is quite small and has no windows but is very clean and cozy. Besides, breakfast is quite good and there are free tea and coffee. And the staff is very friendly, good location. Would definitely stay here again!

The place is great, with location near to Chinatown, Sule Pagoda and being downtown Yangon. The staff was very friendly as well! For my last day, I checked out early, left my bag at the reception, went back and requested if I can have a shower before my overnight bus (being sweaty and all). I was prepared to pay a token fee for being able to do so, but the staff just brought me to their staff floor without question, let me used their shower, washed up feeling great, and did not charged a single cent!

Small but clean room”

The location of this B&B is pretty good, about 15-20 minutes walk to Bogyoke market and Yangon central station. It is also walking distance to Chinatown and Sule pagoda, taxis are easily available in front of the B&B. Staff are polite, breakfast can be improved as they serve the same food daily(asian fried or toast). Room is very small, low ceiling and quite stuffy as the room got no window. The water in the water will take some time to drain, due to that, the room felt humid all the time. However, for the price paid, this B&B is a great value.
