Good location in a nicely redone old building, has cooked breakfast that changes, at least was different for both days we were there. There’s rain type shower and they provide shampoo and body wash. Unfortunately the aircon in the twin room didn’t work and that’s a room with no windows... and one of the showers fills with water as the drainage isn’t great so make sure to move the waste bin to higher ground before showering. But well, I personally felt comfortable as I sleep cold and well hostel showers heh..hence the decent rating.

Charming, clean, and friendly
A wonderfully darling place. The women's room was comfortable and the seating area on the first level was a nice place to talk or read. Breakfast was served each morning with a good variety, and the restrooms and shower rooms were on the main floor and kept clean. The only minor problem was mosquitos in the main room (due to their charming windows that were open during the day), but I would highly recommend this place! I have been to Myanmar six or seven times, and this one is one I will stay in again!

Good stay again but marred by bad experience
This was my second stay here for 2 nights after my return from Mandalay. My first stay was good, thats why I returned. This time I gave a median score for "comfort" because of a bad experience. On the second night a group of maybe 2 or 3 inconsiderate Korean girls were talking or arguing loudly from about 11pm to 2.30am in their private room,which is one floor directly below the men's dorm. There is hardly any soundproofing, flooring is wood panels.It was that loud it kept everyone in the men's dorm up. The management should remind or enforce a policy of quiet hours for the benefit of all travellers. Everything else was perfect except for this incident.

Overall a great stay
For the price & the included breakfast which was quite good, they are hard to beat.Staff are friendly & helpful. No major complaints really, except that they have only small lockers. And they can certainly improve by having more hooks for hanging clothes in the dorms.
