    Its okey”
    I think in general all acomodation in Myanmar is a bit pricier than in other places in SEAsia, so the quality you get for your money always leaves a bit to be expected. But the room is big and comfortable, the bathrooms clean enough (always could be better) and the staff are very nice and helpful. An Okey option for Yangon

    Best hostel I’ve ever been to!”
    This is by far the best dorm style hostel I’ve ever stayed in. They only have separate female and male dorms but they are spectacular. Each bed has a big comfortable blanket, 2 pillows, towels, a light, power socket, and each bunk is completely private with curtains. It is very clean and staff were very helpful. Nice common area upstairs near breakfast lounge and food was awesome !

    Everything’s very clean. It smells new paint and detergent. Beds and pillows are comfortable and the curtains in the bunks provide intimacy. Staff is super helpful, providing services like in a hotel, they confirm bus rides for you, call airlines, install SIM cards, recommend attractions... Breakfast is very good and filling in a cozy breakfast room. I recommend this hostel to anyone arriving in beautiful Myanmar.

    + staff are really friendly and go out of their way to help you when you need it + the bed and its fixtures were good and the aircon was nice and strong + the added breakfast is awesome! Simple but good meals - bathroom needs to be a bit cleaner, perhaps by removing the rubber mats placed there? They leave a smell in the area Other than that, this is a great hostel to stay in!

    Overall I had a good stay in the hostel. Staff was very courteous and helpful. Bed was comfortable and spacious. Cafeteria space was available too. The only thing the hostel should work upon is overall cleaning and maintenance especially of washrooms (some out of order) and front office (crowded with lot of shoes)

    I have stayed more than a month in this hostel as I found this place has a good environment. Common area, dining room and bed design were so nice and big enough with privacy for solo traveller and couples. For couple, they need to book private room because they have male and female room. Breakfast can eat until u full and so dont miss breakfast time. You can book bus ticket in there too.

    For a budget hostel, this place was pretty great. Good location, solid free breakfast, hot showers, friendly and accommodating staff, and great wifi. The walls are thin and there are no windows, but bonus points for all of the hooks in the room! Makes a tiny room so much easier to stay organized in!

    This hostel rooms are located on the second floor. No elevator/lift. Breakfast is great, they give you 3 options. Room is clean, sharing bathroom (very clean as well) but I never get hot water whenever I showered :( But you can always hear people talking at the breakfast table. Our room is 2 rooms distance from the breakfast room, and sometimes I listened to my neighbour talking and other sounds.

    I wish they have more options on breakfast, SET A (egg + rice) SET B (bread + egg). The staff are friendly they will greet you everytime you see them. Be careful to one staff he might be friendly but will get advantage if you are a foreigner, free-loader in the making. I hope they could refrain the hanging clothes on restroom, some clothes has an awful smell.

    From the outside, this hostel looked inconclusive, but when I went to inside the female room, everything was clean & looked like new. Every bed has blanket, pillow, bolster, curtain, lamp, & socket. Inside bathroom with soap & shampoo. Towel was provided. Free drink (tea/coffe/juice) along day. But, i think the breakfast time is so short to me, availabe at 7-9am ! The wifi is great. The hoste is walkable to Sule Pagoda. From airport, I ride bus Airport-Sule, 500 Kyat. When exit arrival gate, the halte is on the left. but i don't know the bus schedule.
