Property Description

Shwe Yo is strategically and centrally located in the heart of Yangon. Many local attractions can be easily accessible by foot. Shwedagon Pagoda is only 25 minutes away. Sule Pagoda is 12 minutes away. At night, 19th street, which is only a 5-minute walk, is filled with restaurants and food stalls where both locals and travelers gather.

    Great hostel! The staff was so wonderful and helpful, even now when we have left and are in a different part of Myanmar, we are still messaging with the owner to ask about buses, etc. The breakfast every morning was delicious, and changes daily. The rooms are big and the beds are comfortable. Would highly recommend to all! Thank you so much for your hospitality, Shwe Yo hostel! It made my stay at Yangon so memorable :)

    I could very well give this place a 1 but I keep my reviews fair. This hostel attempted to turn me away and say they didn’t have a bed for me even though I had a reservation. If it were not for me being stubborn I would have been left high and dry without a room. They were ok with overbooking and turning away a reservation. Keep this in mind when booking. Besides that the hostel was basic. No common area. Beds average. Atmosphere average. Everything was average. Would not stay again.
