    Amazing! ”
    The owner and his team are incredibly friendly and welcoming. The place is clean, in the Centre and serves very good breakfast. They have their own mini restaurant with nice and cheap food. 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. All in all an amazing hostel to stay in !! Highly recommended!

    This hostel is very clean, cozy and the staff is incredibly helpful. The owners speak very good English and love to have a chat with you once you have arrived. The rest of the staff is very nice and friendly as well. You can order food at their own little kitchen which is very cheap and super tasty. The breakfast is different 7 days a week and very nice as well. I will definitely come back here when I’m in Yangon again! Recommended!

    The staffs were really nice and helpful. The bed was good (except that my pillow had some black mold inside the cover but I didn't request for a change since I don't use pillow). Each morning there will be different local food for breakfast which all were delicious, and unlimited water/green tea at the hangout area.

    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!!! :)

    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!

    Very friendly staff and boss. They offer Burmese breakfast which is so delicious. The bed is comfortable and they do provides curtain for all the beds in dorm. The owner is so helpful that willing to help and teach us how to travel by bus and you can get a free circular train ticket from the hostel. They do provide free activities few days in a week. Tried their Shan noodle on Sunday, it was so delicious and cheap. Highly recommended.

    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!

    The owner and all the staff were incredibly friendly and he hostel as a cool vibe with the polished concrete walls and grafitti/wall art My only issue was that there's no top sheet,just a blanked wich gets too hot in Myanmar weather (plus not the most hygienic). 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
