              Friendly staff. No hassles. Obviously a windowsless room won't be a place to spend too many nights in but if u just need a simple place to sleep and fast WiFi, then it should suffice. Breakfast too simple and lame.

              Only booked it for the day as we were catching the night bus and wanted somewhere to leave our bags and relax and shower in the afternoon. Windowless room with funky colour design. Same price as a shared dorm. Plenty of private shared bathrooms. Served it's purpose. A bit hard to find as its on the third floor but its where Google maps says it is. Wouldn't stay here long but its a cheap short term option.

              Nice palace to stay in quiet location”
              I loved how this place was on such a quiet street in Yangon. The location was close to local cheap street food which I also liked... However, it was a bit of a walk from china town. But you can easily get bus 56 for 100ks ... I stayed twice here at this hostel in a double room. The first time I stayed, I loved it and was in the Mandalay room. The air con works great, breakfast is good and the staff are helpful. However, the second time I stayed, I stayed in mrauk-U room, where the air con was dripping water on my bed. Another downside is that there are no windows and the shelves are on an angle. I was given a glass for some water, but it just slipped off the table and broke and I was forced to pay for the glass. It wasn’t very much, but I found this a bit rude considering I had paid for lots of things at the hostel (laundry, buses, etc...). It made me feel a little uncomfortable. All in all though, this is a great hostel, especially for the price. Here was the fastest WiFi I found in Myanmar !

              Shannkalay Hostel could be a little bit far away from Sule Pagoda unlike other accommodation options in the Chinatown, but the staff working there offered quality service, including suggested sightseeing routes, restaurant options and most importantly, booking of bus tickets. Perfect for a short stay in Yangon.

              Cheap by Yangon standards. Also, right next to my fav restaurant in the city - Lucky 7. So that's a huge plus. Shared bathrooms are clean, but I wish they had more soap/shampoo. The staff is nice when you arrive and then stays out of your way the rest of the time. I personally like that. So worked well for me!

              the price is affordable compared to other places. washroom is clean and quite spacious, although i dont understand why in any myanmar hostel or guesthouse there is no hanger on their toilet or whasroom. but location is great. 5 minutes walk to the crowd and u can find restaurant that is pretty costly and if u walk further 15 minutes its very crowded. i think its the central. staff is very polite and helpful. no doubt! think i will come back again!

              Wasn't that sure what to expect when we had booked & don't normally do shared facilities but didn't find anything in Yangon in this price range with private facilities so picked Shannkalay. Got a taxi from the airport, driver wasn't sure of the location but if you say Lucky Seven they know it straight away and that's on the same road. On arrival about 7pm we received a very warm welcome from the staff and were shown to our room. Room is very small but ok for a couple of nights, the positive is the mattress was amazing with nice clean bedding and the facilities provided were always very clean and never found them busy. Lovely little hotel in a great location & would return again when in Yangon.
