I have looked into other hostels in Yangon and this is the best place in downtown, unless you wanted to pay a fortune for accommodation. Before arrival in Yangon, I requested a few specification in my room which they have accomplished right before my check-in. I also looked into the dorm rooms and I noticed a limited space for the lower bunk beds. The front desk provides a wide array of options and guides in moving around in Myanmar. You can request them to purchase bus ticket to Bagan or Mandalay in advance at local ticket rates. Free bottled water is available. The wifi at the lobby is great but not in the rooms. Overall, its a great place to stay in Yangon. Its very reliable and value for money.

The location is great (no far away from different "must see" places. The entrance is kind of weird as you first take stairs not very appealing. Once you get to the first floor, it is totally different and looks much more like a real "reception". The staff is very friendly and helpful for giving information, booking a driver, etc.. The price was very attractive: 10$/person in a dorm! (with breakfast: not the best breakfast ever but anyway... breakfast! Cannot complain when you pay 10$! Showers and toilets are ok. They clean it every day. However, guests are not necessary careful either. So we cannot blame the staff for this. The check out is at noon. As our bus was scheduled at 9:00 pm, we were able to let our luggages at the reception. When we came back after our visit, the staff gave us towels and let us take a shower. (without asking any $). Really kind and backpackers friendly. A place to stay in Yangon!

This hostel is more like a hotel, they don't have any dorms, only single and double rooms. It is located very centrally, so it's great for exploring the city. The stuff was very nice and helpfull. The rooms are nice and clean, the showers could need some maintace. I liked the breakfast that is included, they serve coffee and local breakfast, unfortunately they don't have a breakfast room, so they give you the breakfast in a box. They also give you free water bottles during your stay.

Visited. Staff was sleeping behind counter on the floor with blanket covered during night shift. Wonder if it's appropriate.

What is worse, beds were so dirty. The pillow case clearly so dark n dirty. Hostel cleanliness doesn't look well maintain despite initial interior decoration was well done. Dark dirty stairs up to the hostel.

Good location in downtown (within walking distance to railway station, Sule Pagoda, Aung San market), hence the price is reasonably affordable in this area. Beds are comfortable and overall is clean (not super clean but ok).

Cons:
- It's new only on the surface. They have major issue with their old water pipes. Water smells rusty (heavy water), feels sticky on my skin and has very low pressure. No water came out from the tap when my friend was halfway in her shower. She had to wait 15 minutes with shampoo on her head in the bathroom. When it's finally back, it was yellowish and rusty for quite a while.
- Hot water did not work well in some shower rooms.
- Only stairs to go up to them at level 3, not suitable if you have a lot of things. Stairs are dark and filthy. The vendors downstairs store their tables at the corner at night.
- No common place to hang out
- Low ceiling for Asian, very low for European standard
- No window in the room
- Not as advertised (i.e., four bed), it's a FIVE person dorm
- No locker to put backpacks, only small lockers outside for small valuables.
- No key to lock/access your room, so literally all rooms are unlocked at all times since it's a shared room. As a result, a guy was locked out by his roommates and he knocked (more like hitting) on the door so hard that he woke up the entire village up at 5am! Probably he was drunk but the staffs actually did nothing to stop him. The drama lasted for about 20 minutes, most likely he gave up because I did not hear another voice on the corridor asking him otherwise.

In short, a hit and miss place for a day of stay if you are absolutely desperate.

I stayed here for two nights in two different dorm rooms. The facilities are clean and in excellent conditions. You have working hot showers, free water bottles, stable and fast wi fi and AC. The beds are among the best beds I've slept in. All this comes to a very affordable price, considering the accommodation costs in Myanmar. Only downside was the lack of common area to meet other travellers. There are also no windows in the dorms.

Loved the clean rooms! I only stayed for a night and was traveling alone. I requested for a low bunk bed and was given a solo room as all the low bunk beds were taken at the female dorms! Loved also the fact that it was walking distance to the city hall, sule pagoda and bagyoke market! Do try one of the indian restaurants accros the hostel! I couldnt remember which of those restaurants i gave a shot but loved their buttered chicken tikka!

Good English speaking staff. Great location! 999 shan noodles shop at 34th street, very close to Sule Pagoda. Scott market and Chinatown within walking distance. 2000 kyat from hostel to Shwedagon Pagoda. 7000 kyat from Chinatown to Aung Mingalar Bus Terminal. Please spare at least 1.5 to 2 hour from town to Aung Mingalar bus terminal. Always traffic jam.

The hostel is very new and clean. it's in a downtown where there are many restaurants for you to choose from. Sule Paya and Scott market is in a walking distance. The staffs are friendly and very helpful. The entrance on the street level may look suspicious but when you enter the lobby, it seems like another world. If the hostel provide coathanger and towel rack, that would be perfect.

We spent 11 days in 5 different hotels/hostels in Myanmar and 2 nights in this hostel. This was (by far) the most expensive, but it was the only shared bathroom we had, and the only hotel/hostel with no free breakfast. The early morning/evening staff cannot speak enough English to answer basic questions like "What times do the buses go to Inle Lake?" and there are no signs posted to give this kind of basic information that travellers need.

This hostel looks very new/modern, but I doubt it will stay like this long because they don't appear to be cleaning the shared areas well. The women's shower walls were covered in worms (dead and alive). I kept thinking they would clean the worms/dirt in the showers/toilets or even put toilet paper in the women's bathrooms, but after 24+ hours, there was no change... After staying in the other 4 hotels in other parts of Myanmar for $20-$25 per night, I honestly can't believe that we paid the amount of money for a shared, dirty bathroom with no toilet paper and no included breakfast.

Positives: Great location near the Sule Pagoda and walking distance to the railway station if you want to do the Circle Train; Unlimited free water; Modern decor. The front desk staff we encountered in the afternoon can speak great English, but they weren't there when we needed information to plan our onward travel...

Overall: We would recommend others to stay somewhere else that might not look as new/modern, but will include breakfast and have staff that can speak enough English to help you plan the next segments of your trip. Better value for your money.

Do you have airport pick up? If so how much?
Answer from acciovn

As I know, the hostel don't have airport pick up service. You can take the taxi from the airport to the hotel. Very easy. The fare from 8000 --> 9000 Kyat. Don't worry, the taxi driver know about Yangon very clearly, he will drop you in front of the door of the hostel.

Taxi from the AirPort operates as a fixed price. About $US20 I think.
