Property Description

Mingalabar. Welcome to the one of the best hostels in Yangon.

Shwe Yo Vintage Hostel was opened in December 2016 as a home away from home, where anyone from around the world can relax, exchange ideas, and share experiences.

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.

We know that some of the best things in life are free.

    This hostel was a very good experience. Clean place, clean bathrooms and showers, despite a pretty low pressure on the showers. Bunk beds in dorms are clean and comfortable, with curtains, power inlets and a lamp for each bed. Staff is very helpful despite pretty low level in English. The breakfast is local, a delicious bowl of noodles with sauce, some coffee and fruit. Everything you want in a hostel for a very low price, great value and experience !

    I absolutely adored my stay at this hostel. I booked a private room here and was not disappointed. As a solo female traveler, I found Yangon a bit overwhelming, but it was nice to have a comfortable and inviting space to come back to. The room itself was quiet, clean and comfortable with working AC. The staff was the best part - they were incredibly accomodating, friendly and helpful in assisting me in booking day trips and getting around the city. The free Burmese breakfast was a post as well.

    My stay here was really good, and it’s in a convenient location very close to china town and a short walk to the pagoda and the markets. The staff is lovely and the food here is also great, the best noodles I had in Yangon! The only downside is that the rooms are so dark. Another slight problem I had was that I booked an all girl dorm but was put into the mixed bigger dorm by accident. This wasn’t a problem but I did pay more for the smaller room and the didn’t refund me for their error.

    Super helpful staff a gang of young cheerful students from villages around, and the chief staff is very knowledgeable and a good conversationalist. Asm Street food All around the hostel. And they really want to improve and learn so u can tell them what ur looking for and they'll try to get info about it for them to get better and to help. Security's good. Beds N breakfasts were nice. Some showers have low current power. That's all.

    Staff was super nice and the beds were comfy! Washrooms could be cleaner though and there wasn't really any atmosphere when I was there. There also is no locks on any of the doors to the rooms. Overall had a great stay though.

    The best part of this hostel was the stuff the owner was really nice but especially the girl who works at night so friendly and cute. Another really good thing is the breakfast, is traditional food really really good! Don't miss it!. The room was okay clean and comfortable, the shower worked perfectly well with good pressure, however, there were a lot of mosquitos when we got to the room since they left the window open.

    Smelly rooms and bathrooms. Nice breakfast and nice staff though. The private rooms have no windows, which in my opinion it is a big downside.

    Good familiar hostel, great to meet new inspiring people. Facilities are all right, A/C working, toilets and shower need several works to be improved - some shower were not working properly, and some toilets were closed due to maintenance. Good staff, sometimes just a bit strange that they check on you if you skip breakfast and come to your bed to check if you are there.

    The staff here was super sweet and helpful. Unfortunately they do have pretty bad bed bugs right now, I ended up sleeping on the floor because they refused to refund. Super great staff and breakfast other than that!
