Best place to stay for the water festival!!”

I was spending 3 nights at Shwe Yo hostel during water festival holidays and had a good time in Yangon! The family owned hostel is a great place to be: Best location, very nice and helpful family and staff that speak good English and help you a lot with travel planning, things to do around Yangon and prepare the most delicious (vegetarian) food I had so far in Myanmar :) Although many sightseeing places and restaurants were closed during the water festival, it never got boring at the hostel because we went on a free walking tour, exchanged experiences about Myanmar & travels and could try out some special Burmese deserts that the family prepared at the hostel. The place is clean and good for socializing with other travelers, I am more than happy with my stay and can totally recommend it!!! :)

Good hostel”

Shwe Yo Vintage Hostel is located in China town and near the Sule Pagoda. If you walk to the circle line train station, it is just a 10-minute walk. The room is clean, spacious and well-furnished. The host and staff are very friendly and helpful. They will give you some good advice to travel around the city. The host even upgrades my room to a suite free of charge!

Familiar atmosphere. Very friendly and incredibly helpful owner”

We had a very good stay at Shwe Yo. Do not expect a typical backpacker hostel with a chillout area and bar. This place is more familiar. The owner of this small guesthouse welcomed us and helped us with everything of our travel. He helped to cancel a night, organize transfer to the bus station and to purchase bus tickets to Bagan. It is not like the backpacker hostels in Bagan and Inle, so there is not a big common area and lots of tours offered. But still for us it was exactly the right deal! Thank you

Nice histel, caring owner, perfect stay in Yangon! ”

Super cool hostel, nice people, there's a different (almost) free program each day. The hostel is family owned and the family is very caring and loves to chat and give advice about Yangon and onward travel (we booked our bus to Mawlamyine here, unfortunately ended up in a slow and very tight local bus (On our way back from Mawlamyine to Yangon, we had a much nicer bus!). You can decide between a local breakfast or a regular toast breakfast! Special recommendation: If you're looking for good and very reasonably priced sushi: two doors down the road is the sushi restaurant "Oishi II" which was very delicious!

Nice hostel, with really comfortable beds with curtains. The vibe was social, but not party, and the staff were great. There’s some good restaurants and bars in the area. The attractions are a bit of a walk away, but that’s ok. Thanks Shwe Yo! I enjoyed my stay.

Great stay & staff! ”

The staff and owner are wonderful! The owner helped me with my circle train ticket, all my directions around Yangon, as well as help with the cheapest and best way to the airport. The breakfasts are all local dishes with ingredients from the market and are delicious! There are homemade local family lunches you can come to as well as tours and events throughout the week they set up for all the guests! The beds and bathrooms are clean and are all you need for a stay. The downstairs area is great to hang out in. I thought the building was really cool looking and loved all the art work on the walls. Great location as well! Thank you for such a wonderful stay in Yangon!

Great family-run place (and GREAT bed). ”

What a wonderful start to Myanmar. There's no doubt that this couple wants all their guests to have a good time. Personal, helpful, smiling. We had a private room which was close to the reception, and despite it not having windows and that you could hear a little noise in the morning it was still worth it. And because it is new it is also very clean. And what a bed!!! Great zzzzzzzz. Close to the circle line (a must in Yangon) and easy to get to with cheap taxis. And simple but good local breakfast.

Around the area you have a lot of places to eat as well. Ask the owner for advice if you are looking for something specific. From the hostel you can easily book train, bus and other tickets. For travel advice you can also go and have a chat with the owner. The rooms are nice and clean as well. The beds have little curtains so you have some more privacy.

I'd recommend them to provide top sheets/duvet covers instead The entrance/chill out area is always full of travelers, great to meet people Traditional breakast served everyday
