The guy working in the second guesthouse (closer to Sule Pagoda) is probably the unfriendliest burmese I met during my trip. I didn't see him smile a single time during my 3 night stay. The guesthouse is quite dirty. I saw it being cleaned by a ~10 year old boy (family member i guess). You think a 10yo can do... More

The hotel was nice , the price was abit high for our budget, but the rooms were good and the beds comfy. The shared bathrooms were also very clean , but we were invaded by mosquitos, hundreds were flying around the hotel and than on our second night the power went out and the generator kicked in , making sleep...

It's got a Japanese house feel to it, hence the name. Found the beds really comfortable though the pillows were a bit stiff. You will definitely get bitten by mosquitos during the night if you don't use the net. There is working A/C. The bathrooms are clean, but the showers are cold :( The boys that work there are really... More

THERE ARE TWO OKINAWA GUESTHOUSES. I stayed in the first one closest too the pagoda / monument park- second opened. I'm not sure why there are so many negative reviews? Perhaps it's a mixture of both? Yes, the mattresses are on the floor but this doesn't impact sleeping that much, the pillows are a little hard but dormitory life I'd... More

I stayed in a few different places in Yangon but this place was the best for the money. Air con, wifi, everything clean, books, Mosquito net in the room (didn't use). The little dudes that run the place are very nice and helpful. Not sure why everyone has such high expectations for a low cost accomodation. Will stay here again!

The guesthouse was quite ok although a bit smelly. The shared bathroom is good and all toiletries are included in the price (soap, shampoo, toilet paper and towel). The breakfast is very average compared to what we have had since then. The location is really good though and there is loads to see. Visit all markets and street food stalls... More

The location of the hotel is just great - central railway station and all the attractions of colonial district are within walking distance. Hotel is run by adolescent boys - their English is not perfect, but they do their best. The rooms are small, dark and quite dirty - but for Burmese standard it seemed acceptable to me for that...

I stayed here a lot of times in many room types. (Maybe 6 times, only private type, never try dorm) Not many budget choice in Yangon and this is outstanding budget b&b in Yangon. The location could not be any better. It used to be my first option if I want to stay economy. The room in upper floor was... More

Two good things about Okinawa guest house, the best location, very close to Sule Pagoda and the friendly & helpful staff. However, $38 per night for a guest house is quite expensive, dark room, no hot-shower, noisy till midnight. Especially, be careful with the mosquitoes!
