    the place is quite clean! you can go barefoot in the toilet so i think that says a lot. one down side is that there is many mosquitoes, my friend got quite a few bites. however, the hostel provided calamine lotion. hostel staff are friendly and fluent in english. receptionist also helped with booking of bus tickets to outside of yangon. bed is comfortable. might get a little squeezy when there are a lot of bags lying no the floor.

    The rooms where very clean, and the AC was good and could be turned on wherever you were in the room, which was a plus because it was hot in Yangon. Breakfast could have been better.

    This could have been 1 of the best hostels I’ve ever stayed. Good location, excellent facilities and very tasty breakfast. However there’s a very serious bedbug problem (dorms). I’ve never been bitten by bedbugs before, so at the beginning I thought they were mosquito bites, whoever have had this experience before, they know it get worst by the days to come. Very itchy and a very uncomfortable feeling. They really need to solve this problems because I wasn’t the only one affected by this issue.

    Very Good

    This hostel was solidly ok. It was clean, but not sparkling, the staff were nice enough but not super friendly, and the facilities were just ok. The free breakfast was quite good though. There were also many mosquitoes in the hostel which made sleeping there a bit of a challenge. There was one common space aside from the kitchen but it wasn’t really a happening place. I was travelling with a friend so it didn’t really matter, but it’s something of note for future solo travellers.

    Would not recommend. There were bed bugs in our room and instead of helping us to wash/dry our clothes the staff offered no assistance and were quite rude. We also saw no sign that they planned to clean the room so that other guests would not have the same problem. Left after one night for another hostel where the staff has been great! Otherwise the security is a bit sketchy. Anyone can come inside and there is not always someone at the desk to keep watch.

    Great location,no lock for room, but always someone at the reception. breakfast was nice. The atmosphere is ok, I’d say for young adults it’s not amazing. BED BUGS. found bed bugs in my bed at 1am. Went to reception, asked to get moved or something, said they couldn’t do anything. next day I tried to explain how to get rid of them but they didn’t understand what I was saying. Very frustrating experience as they didn’t even know what they were. Had to go to a self service laundry & leave early.

    The best thing this place has is the photographer that did the profile. The guys in reception doesn't want to do nothing. Tried to book a tour around the city... the guy did not help me and told me to hire a taxi by myself... Ask if he has something to recommend me ... he says not... They are there just to charge you. Nothing else... Doesn't accept credit card for anything besides the stay... the place is not in a good area... is kind of scary to go out at night...

    BED BUGS. We arrived and the place looked lovely. There weren’t staff at the desk often and there were no locks so anyone could walk in directly into the hostel rooms. A girl we were with caught bed bugs from this hostel and noticed on the first night she had been bitten, she discreetly told staff and asked for her things to be cleaned. They refused and didn’t tell anyone in the room that the place was crawling with bed bugs. They refused to help and were very rude.
