The location is good as it is just a walking distance from junction mall, park and some other famous pagodas. Rooms were clean but they dont set rules to travelers unlike other hostel, like phone calls timing- my experience was my roommate was still talking to phone until dawn result was I need to check out the next morning and transfer to different hostel just to have a quite sleep. If maybe they just set rules then maybe my roommate was reminded of some room ethics, anyhow its not their major fault. Staff are nice tho toilet is not regularly maintain.
Pros: Location is excellent and the facilities were fine. Cons: Our room was a little dirty; dirt accumulated in corners and a few insects. Nothing major though (by my standards at least). Breakfast was fine but simple. Unfortunately the staff were unable to help us book or even research a bus to Chaung Thar Beach, something I imagined would be pretty straightforward in their line of business. That is my biggest complaint from the stay. Still, if you don't need much help with travel arrangements then it will likely prove an acceptable place to stay.
I love everything about this hostel! Clean, welcoming atmosphere, quiet. The staff are very friendly and helpful; the cafe is huge, air-conditioned, and the perfect place to work with reliable fast Wi-Fi; the dorms are cozy with comfy beds and tons of storage space in the bed area and for your bags; and it's in a great neighborhood. I even messaged them to let me know when there's an opening during the Thingyan/new year water festival dates since they were fully booked online and they were so quick with their response to let me know that they had one! Unfortunately I couldn't make it anymore due to a personal reason but I really appreciated their customer service. My favorite hostel in Yangon :)
This place ticked all the boxes for what I was seeking in Yangon. Cheap, my own room, clean and friendly. Rooms were comfortable and modern. It's central and close to the train station which is convenient. There's a nice balcony to sit on as the sun goes down and enjoy a beer looking at the rooftops of nearby buildings. Stairs to get to the top floor are very steep by the way. I'm guessing this place is quite new as it was lacking an ambience. The breakfast was perhaps the worst breakfast on offer in every hotel I stayed at in Myanmar. Toast and cereal? Come on guys, you can do much better than that.
Pros: - Good location. Less than 10 mins from the train station. Close to markets and restaurants. - Beds are comfortable and clean with privacy curtain. Each bed also has plugs and individual lights. Cons: - Expensive for what it is. Have stayed in lower rated hostels before which are a lot nicer. - Bathroom is disgusting. Mouldy walls, cracked tiles, and dirt all over the shower floor that is not cleaned daily. - The dorm rooms are very, very small. There were lockers but not enough space to put our rucksacks. There were 4 of us in the 6 bed dorm and we could not all get into our bags at the same time - The locks on both my locker and the dorm room door were broken and the staff were unable to provide an alternative. I also went to another room by accident and my card opened their dorm door as well so security isn't great. …
