We were there over the Water Festival which was great fun (constantly soaked though). Need to consider this time as difficult to move around and travel prices (eg bus increase)

Typical hostel for backpackers. Very nice staff. We especially liked the free E-Bike tour guided by a local who showed us all the important temples. They also offer other activities which sounded great. We absolutely recommend it!

Had a good time at Ostello Bello”
Ostello Bello is a great hostel when you want to meet other people, they offer a free e bike tour (excluding the tip for the guide) and a really nice sunsettour. We had a great new years party!! The prices in Bagan are quite expensive, but this was the best deal I could get..

Best 1st birthday party in Bagan! ”
First night we arrived it was very low key, no one drinking and EVERYONE in bed by 8.30pm, which we found really strange. The early morning 4.30-5.30am alarms explained that since everyone was getting up for sunrise. Be prepared for this at this hostel, no one sleeps in! As the sunrise is apart of why people come to Bagan. Second night was different people at the hostel with various groups playing trivia night which was heaps of fun and not so many people in the dorms asleep. Third night was “Ostello Bello Turns 1!” Which was a FANTASTIC night! A huge party on the rooftop and everyone having such a great time. This party brought locals and other tourists to our hostel and it was so much fun. There is also free bike tours here which are so worthwhile and reception is so helpful with a million of questions they answer. Food is pretty average and can get a better meal at surrounding places nearby but for convenience can’t complain. We enjoyed it so much here that we booked Ostello Bello in Inle Lake too!

The social place to stay in Bagan”
There were quite many people when I stayed there. it was easy to meet new people thanks to organised tours (definitely recommend to take the free guided tour around temples). good base, not far from main temples. many restaurants are in the area. every room has its bathroom. it can get a bit dirty, depends with whom you are sharing the room. the beds are comfortable and AC is working just fine.

Great Source for Activities and People”
Ostello Bello has a well-developed system for helping travelers see all the typical tourist sights. They offer many of their own personal tours everyday and will help you book outside activities and transportation as well. There is always tea and coffee available, which is great for all the sunrise activities you will most likely be doing in Bagan. They’ve cultivated a great atmosphere where guests feel welcome to hang out at the hostel and feel able to meet other guests easily. The only downsides for our stay included cold showers the whole trip and an AC that didn’t work at first (but as soon as we asked for help, they got the AC working perfectly). The breakfast is decent, but my friend with many food allergies was pretty much restricted to watermelon and had to eat breakfast elsewhere. With limited choices in Bagan, this place is worth the price because of the friendly (but not crazy-party vibe) atmosphere and all the tours they offer.

Perfect place for a solo traveler or a group, loads of activities and the nicest staff ever. You have shower and beds in case you arrive before the check in and the common spaces are great! Just heads up, during my stay the WiFi was down but you could go to bagan Pool and use theirs, good for a little bit of disconnection but not that comfortable at the same time. Would recommend to check before going in case is an important issue for you.

The coolest hostel in Bagan”
My friend and I loved Ostello Bello. Whoever designed the place understood what travellers need, from hooks in the room, to water dispensers to hangout places for those who came too early for checkin. The only suggestion we could make is to improve the hot water in our room (202?). It was challenging to shower early in the morning or late at night 😬 The breakfast could be a bit better too but otherwise, it is a great place to stay in and even make new friends!

Good nice relaxed stay”
Enough opportunities to meet fellow travelers, it is a bit expensive but the rooms are clean and with AC. Do the free tour, it is a good (and cheap) way to see the main sites and to get to know the area and to meet other people. The only things are that the breakfast is not great, it is okay though but just not all that great, if you want to extend you probably have to change rooms due to their weird system, sometimes the power dies which means no AC no lights no electricity no wifi, the wifi isnt that good anyways.

Stayed here for 2 nights. Cons: a curtain on each bed could be nice to have more privacy. -thought of being a bit out of place because most of the guests were europeans. I think i was the only asian guest at that time. But I like the receptionist lady who was I think asian by decent. She was just so accommodating and I wasn't intimidated by her at all. :) Pros: Just right in the center of New Bagan. There is an ebike rental just right outside of Ostello Bello Pool for only 2000 kyats per day than the others that ranges from 3000-5000 kyats per day. -join in the free guided tour. -they have daily activities to mt.popa for 9000 kyats -daily sunset river cruise with drinks and snacks for 8000 kyats I don't really have something bad to say about this hostel although its pricier than other hostels but I think I will go back here if ever il be back in Bagan. Free Breakfast was 2 slices of toasted bread, a croissant, jam and butter, egg, a fruit and an biscuit/cookie.

New Bagan hostel to stay at!!”
friendly and knowledgeable staff! Ask them about food, sunrise, sunset. They have free day tour worth considering in itself. Clean facilities with restroom facilities in each room. Breakfast was basic (scrambled eggs, carbs : bread/ pasta/ rice, fruit). Safe meal to start the day. Activities every night, bar is pricy compared to restaurants but a chance to catch other travelers. I would go back without question

We stayed in the 8 person dorm at the location w/o the pool during our time in Bagan, and despite it being pricey for a hostel we had a pretty good time. The coffee and tea are not the best, but the breakfast each morning was very filling and there is a great area outside and on the rooftop to relax. They are walking distance to several restaurants, and we did get some drinks and food at the on-site restaurant. We also took advantage of their free Bagan tour (must rent your own e-bike for ~2500 kyat), boat trip on the Irrawaddy, and took a shared taxi to Mt. Popa. We would highly recommend the tour and boat trip, as we really enjoyed those, but the Mt. Popa trip was only meh (just very crowded and lots of climbing in the heat).

Really loved this place! The staff are SO accommodating and friendly, the common spaces are always buzzing and lovely, their free ebike tour is amazing, and (at least the four and six person) rooms (I’m not positive about the others) have their own bathrooms which is super nice! The only down side would be the size of the beds, which feel a little small when you’re on the top bunk; but even that I wouldn’t consider a deterring factor. I would absolutely recommend Ostello Bello when you’re in Bagan!

The staff are so knowledgeable, friendly and over all awesome people. The room was very clean and all the facilities worked and weren’t broken. If there was any issue, the staff were imidiately on it. 10/10 and would 100% book again. They have Ostello Bello in Mandalay that I also ended up booking, which also exceeded my expectations. I’ll have to try out their other one on Inle Lake next time I am in Myanmar.

Doesnt worth the money”
Air-con is not strong. Room size so-so. No WiFi during the time I stayed. Service quality - not good. No early check-in is allowed or you have to pay half of the room price. What they offer is a rooftop where there was only one shower room (outdoor) and some beds. You may say they have every right to do so but I can see this deviates from the practice of other guest houses/ hotels in Bagan. I have stayed in another hotel in Bagan and they allowed me to do early check-in. Met friends on the overnight bus and they can also do early check-in. When other hostels/ hotels can offer early check in with a more reasonable price in the town, why this hostel then? Also the check-in took more than an hour. I experienced ebike injury - not serious but the hostel staff only said "omg that's bad" without offering any help. Having an accident in Bagan is not a fun thing and help from the hotel staff is really important. Also no bandaid in their emergency box (which I consider as basic things).

I had a super wonderful stay in Ostello Bello Bagan. The bed was clean, the room was spacious, which made it much easier to move around. There's a chilling area full of sunshine right in front of the hostel, and you would love it a lot after a whole day full of activities and sun-chasing. Great community of travelers there as well. The staffs were extremely helpful and what I miss the most about these amazing human beings is that they made me feel like home all the time. I'm so coming back here if I ever travel back to Bagan one day.!!!

Bad wifi ”
The wifi was non existent. I booked one night but wanted to book a second night immediately when I checked in. The not so friendly girl at the reception told me I got a 10% discount when I did that online through their website. If I booked it there at the reception I would have to pay full price. I couldn’t do this online at that time so I asked her to hold the room. This also wasn’t possible. In the end I just payed the full price to be sure. This is however not very customer friendly and basically ridiculous.
