        Great place to meet people”

        This is by far one of the best hostels in Yangon. If you want to meet other travelers, this is the spot to do so. At the time of this review, renovations recently finished. So you'll experience a fresh and modern lounge/reception area. It's cozy, has great wifi, and chill. Pros: Beds are comfy and clean, showers/toilets are always clean, wifi is great, lounge area is everything you'll hope for. Cons: You have to walk up a couple flights of stairs to get to the dorm rooms (not a problem unless you don't like walking... but then why are you traveling abroad in the first place?), the shower rack is directly across from the showerhead (just sayin... it's a poor design), the a/c can work better than you hope (that's probably a positive =P).

        This is Myanmar not Thailand, so things are not going to be as polished. If you are ok with that you will be satisfied here. Great location in downtown close to Chinatown and Sule Pagoda. Food options are plentiful nearby. The dorm rooms are fine, walls not so thick so you hear a lot of noise from outside and the other rooms. Bathrooms could be a little cleaner and wifi is just ok. Breakfast is basic. The host family though was very friendly and helpful with directions. For the price the place is fine.

        I reall hoped for social hostel, because it was my veri first night in Yangon. Hostel itself in not bad, very basic with its issues as broken very loud door, which you cant opet without waking all in the room up. But no social people at all. Receptionist not very helping with travel info either. I left day earlier because I just didnt like staying there.

        Cheap, clean, good air con

        For what you pay in Yangon, this is a great deal. It's clean, the air con is strong, lockers are big, and the WiFi (lobby and maybe the room above it) is decent for Myanmar standards. But the staff were the least helpful or friendly I encountered anywhere in Myanmar (including elsewhere in Yangon) and the breakfast was downright terrible. Still, you can't beat the price in a country where accommodation is painfully expensive.

        the staff, the quiet beds, getting exposed to local breakfast

        This hostel gives you fluffy towels, free of charge! And you get Burmese hospitality with a staff member carrying your bag up to your room for you. What other hostel does that?! The showers are a little gross, and you'd be nuts not to wear flip flops, but it is a hostel after all. The dining area was a little odd as the narrow tables were set up in rows with chairs on only one side so it wasn't conducive to meeting people (though it was perfect to get everyone to watch music videos. The breakfast served changed every morning that I was there, and was hit and miss for my taste, but props to them for serving local, non-Westernized breakfast food. I left an article of clothing there and couldn't return for another ten days, and they not only remembered me, but returned my clothing to me as well. I'd stay here again.

        Good place to sleep, but don’t expect much”

        Listing showed currency exchange, restaurant, free breakfast, bar, games room, and gift/souvenir shop. Not one of these things were at the property!! No guest access to kitchen, so I was limited to ramen and sandwiches (got the supplies from a nearby supermarket). Small drink refrigerator with sodas/beer by the reception stand, but everything is double the price you’d pay at the convenience store around the corner. Coffee machine was setup a few days into my stay, but again the prices were very high and I had already bought cheaper supplies at the store. Different staff members will you give you different answers to questions, so ask them all. The young people running the hostel mean well and are friendly, but I don’t think they have much experience. Metal door to dorm room was very loud and disruptive when rude roommates slammed it at all hours of the night going in & out repeatedly. For the price, it’s not a bad place to stay - just don’t expect anything other than a bed and shower.
