Tokyo Guest House
Reviewed January 28, 2013

It's located up dirty dark concrete stairs. The place is cramped and feels like a left over set from the film Blade Runner. The rooms are tiny with makeshift doors and a cheap padlock to lock them. The shared
bathroom is also shared with unwashed pots and pans and a generous sprinkling of ants. The price for a double room was twenty eight dollars. We were booked in for two nights but stayed the one hour it took us to find a better place at a cheaper price.
Avoid avoid avoid.

We stayed here for one night before flying out.
The place is fine and clean, but the rooms are tiny. Basically 2 beds and 2 backpacks filled up the room. No windows, shared shower (no hot water when we were under it) and toilets
And this all for 24 dollars. We had a much better deal on the hotel we stayed in on arrival. To bad this was booked full.
Overall not to bad, but just not worth the price

I found Yangon amazingly underdeveloped in terms of accommodations. I tried three in total and found the Tokyo one was the best, as it had a bit of a backpacker vibe, while the other were more like cheap hotels.

Locationwise it is a little bit of the map. Yes it is right next to the Sule Pagoda but this is at the southern end of the commercial center. It takes a little bit to get anymore from here. Taxis might be of help. Next to the pagoda is however one of the most frequented (in my opinion) bus stops, which get you for very little money around town.

Rooms and community areas are nothing to write home about though, but that basically applies to all of Myanmar.
