Best budget accommodation in Ngapali”
The manager is extremely kind and accommodating and allowed us to check into our room at 5 am after a long overnight bus. Kind of far from main strip of restaurants but great new facilities, strong AC, and decent breakfast in the morning

The staff are the sweetest!”
The best part about this place was the staff! If you want somewhere close the nice part of the beach it's a bit far so check out a map. Overall had a great stay and the staff were extremely helpful.

Good, cheap hostel”
Major pro: the beds were seriously comfortable in the four-bed dorm room. I was only here for one quick night and then met up with some friends elsewhere, but it definitely did the job for a solid night's sleep.

Great way to end my time in Myanmar”
I chose this hostel as it was the cheapest I could find online but expectations have definitely been surpassed. New hostel with new facilities and new amenities. Overall, the standards is up there as the one of best budget accommodation I've come across in all of Myanmar (trust me on this one). Plenty of showers and toilets, comfy new mattresses (most have had their plastic sheets removed by now), clean sheets with nice pillows and blankets, A/C in room and towels provided. Noticeably spacious environment. Breakfast is included and served on two balconies (plenty of room to chill out). Best part were the staff. Very nice people, friendly and hospitable (as with most of Myanmar). Contrary to the negative comments by the French traveler, the staff here are absolutely respectful. The cleaning and restaurant staff don't have great English (as with most of Myanmar) and probably giggled in embarrassment as they couldn't respond to her in English. If that French traveler took offense they it says a lot more about her than it does of other people. Location is ideal. Access to beach is right around the corner with food stalls just as close. Beach is huge and has the calmest tropical waters I've bathed in. Locals here are super chilled, they don't pesker you to buy anything from them, they just leave you alone. Never experienced, seen or heard of anyone being harassed here (even if you are wearing bikini). Overall, my time in Ngapali was a great way to end my trip to Myanmar.

Cheap.”
Best bang for the buck in Ngapali. Hostel is clean but showers are cold and the matraces are still wrapped in plastic which is annoying to sleep on. Otherwise good. Great location by the way. One minute to the beach.

Worst rip off in Myanmar!”
I stayed in a single room which cost 40 dollars and that i negociated 34 dollars. First, the hostel is located on the "local" Beach which is very dirty. Don't expect to lay on it... The room vas extremely small (9 square meters or less), nowhere to put your clothes, no chair, nothing. The room was dirty, the AC didnt work, the window was broken, the mosquito window was ripped off. No cleaning was made. The bed wasnt made but they assured me that the bed sheets were clean... Yeah right! The matress is covered of plastic, which make it noisy and hot. I havent had a drop of hot water in 6 days (even in 10 dollars hotels you have hot Water...). The breakfast was sooo Bad! 3 or 4 days Old toasts... Finally, when i complained about the dirt and the lack of hot water, they were all talking in burmese with each others and laughing. So disrespectful. This place is a total rip off! You can find much better around.

Good location,right next to the beach”
The hostel was not busy when i was there (beginning of december) so the 4 bed dorm was never fully ocuppied. I can't imagine how it would be when booked out, because the room was very small. And there was only one room key. The staff was very friendly and helpful, but spoke basic english and didn't always understand what i wanted (like most places in myanmar). Breakfast was tasty and they would bring me extra bread and jam when i asked for it. Location is the best part of this hostel - it is less than 100m away from the beach and you can hear the waves when you go to sleep:) Overall i liked it here, although it seemed a bit pricy for a hostel... but it was the cheapest option i had as a solo traveler. And i met some nice backpackers too.

Great location lovely staff. ”
So close to the beach and easy walk to the restaurants. Staff were friendly and helpful. Bed was comfortable. It hasn't long opened so small improvements I'd suggest is breakfast could be better and label the soap/ shampoo in the shower. Also dorms are narrow so push the bed to the wall.

Wenig Gegenwert fürs Geld, aber preiswerteste Unterkunft in Overpriced Ngapali”
Für Alleinreisende gibt es keine preiswerte Alternative in Ngapali. Wenig Hostelathmosphäre, nicht zufriedenstellendes Frühstück (keine Auswahl, nur eine Tasse Löskaffee ...). Der schöne Hauptstrand Ngapali Beach liegt vier Kilometer entfernt!
