      Unknowledgeable staff”
      The walls are super thin, and the door is more of a good shower courtain than anithing else. Otherwise, the room was clean and the wifi was good. The BIG thing was the unknowledgeable staff. They gave us the wrong bus number to take us to the hotel from the bus station (it's bus 36, station Sule, they told us it was bus 35). The payment process was also quite underwhelming. The card terminal didn't work, plus we had a curency rate issue. They also directed us to a tourist information point that did not exist, gave us the wrong information on prices at sights and told us that the Airport bus doesn't drive as early as 5am, but IT DOES... I must say they were kind enough to serve us breakfast even after official breakfast time (we did ask in advance if that was possible). For breakfast we had toast, jam, butter, coffe/tea and there was a choice of noodles as well.

      Supper friendly staffs”
      The thing we love most is that the staffs are supper friendly and helpful. They gave us free map, showed us the places to visit and contacted the local taxi drivers even after we checked out. Breakfast was really good including fruit and tea/ coffee. The only problem is that the AC is located just opposite our heads which is quite uncomfortable. But this hostel is really worth to stay with great services and reasonable price.

      Staff hospitality is unbeatable!”
      So far I loved this place just because the staff were so nice with smiles on their face, ready to serve you what you might have come up with. A bit downsides, I would say a single room with no window is pretty small and no cleaning during my stay (4 nts). However, I will consider to stay here again once I happen to return to Yangon.

      This guesthouse is very clean and hygienic. All day long working in showers and toilets. Very near to Chinatown. But the staf is is the thing to go to the SAT. The all work together, they all are same friendly and polite. They can plan your trips in Yangon or abroad and mak reservations. They have own taxi, so you know its for a reasonable price. I was there at New Year and they made a little ceremony and prepared food for the customers. A real personal treatment. A boy even sewed my jeans, when tear.

      Nice stay in a good and central budget location”
      The staff is very friendly and extremely helpful. They can help you with anything from booking buses or ordering taxis. The rooms are tiny and contain a bed, air con and fan. The only slightly negative point is that the doors have large glass panels in it. Even though you can't see through, the light from the hall, which is on during the night, will be very bright in the rooms. The shared showers and WC are ok, some in better condition than others, but they are cleaned regularly. As the staff washes the towels by hand, you might want to bring your own - for whatever reason. For Westeners toilet paper is also a bit on the short side. The breakfast was great, including a local dish as well as toast, fruit, juice, tea and coffee. As a solo female traveler I can also say that I always felt safe.

      Clean but just OK”
      The rooms were clean, but basic, and the staff was friendly. They provided fresh fruit in the rooms and a bottle of water. There was also a mini-fridge with a mini bar, which was nice. The price for a single room was really good. The bathrooms are wet bathrooms (shower and toilet in one), some have hot water, and others don't. But there's someone cleaning the bathrooms and general common areas multiple times per day, which I liked. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The road noise got incredibly loud during the day. If you intend to sleep in, and you are a light sleeper, you won't be able to do it here. Also, there was definitely a bird roosting inside the wall near my room. There was a mirror that was covering a metal mesh grate that had been painted the same color as the wall. The roosting noises were coming from that area, so I can only assume that a bird built its nest in the wall and spent its time there during the heat of the day, which is when I heard the bird noises the most. Aside from the road noise, the other bad thing about this hostel is that they allow smoking in common areas, which I think is disgusting. I don't want to be eating my breakfast next to someone puffing on a cigarette inside the hostel. Eww. If smoke doesn't bother you, this may not be a problem, but to me, there is no excuse whatsoever for indoor smoking. The location is good, but I'd probably try to find some place a bit quieter w/ a non-smoking policy next time.

      Friendliest hostel I've ever stayed at!”
      Only stayed one night, but was blown away with the attentiveness and friendliness of the staff. The staff here rock! Location wise, the SAT is more or less exactly the right location to stay in Yangon. Rooms are naturally very basic, but the common room facilities and shared showers are all clean and decent. Wi-Fi is fast and works throughout the building.

      This is a great little hostel. The rooms are sparkling, the staff is friendly and helpful, and the breakfast is yummy.The only problem is that it is right above a market and it gets quite loud at times. Still, as long as you keep the windows closed for the night, you should be fine. I would definitely stay here again.

      Very ftiendly staff, clean shared bathrooms, good location
      The staff are very friendly, especially the pretty receptionist who speaks good English. If you don't mind twin beds, ask for room 204 which I got. It was spacious compared to the other rooms with double beds on the same floor which looked small. Also, It is away from street side so it's quiet. The shared bathrooms are also better on the 2nd floor. Avoid the 3rd floor coz that means you have to go down to 2nd floor to use the bathrooms. That being said, I had a comfortable stay at The SAT.
