                  Wayfarers is one of the cleanest hostels I have stayed in. The beds were exceptionally comfortable and showers were warm and modern. Right on the main road with food, markets, short walks to pagodas and a lovely park. Woils definitely recommend and I will probably return when I get back to Yangon

                  Staff, decor, location

                  Two 21 year old budget travellers from Western Australia. Staff were really friendly and accomodating, and although very small and a little hard to see from the street, this was our cleanest and easiest stay in Yangon. Breakfast of toast and coffee is free, and you are right in the hustle and bustle of downtown chinatown. Beds and bathrooms are clean, we had hot water, and in the dorms you have a reasonably large personal space with a nice lockable teak cupboard, charging ports and a curtain. I reccomend highly, the only reason the deal is so good (i think) is because they are so newly established.

                  Top notch”

                  All accomodation in Myanmar is more expensive than the rest of SEA, so this is something to expect, however this place is absolutely worth it. Very clean facilities, comfy bunks with curtains, locker and reading light, and a decent breakfast. Security guard is the absolutely friendliest, and him, with the night clerk, saved my butt getting a taxi to the bus station in record time (allow about 2 hours for this! Traffic in Yangon is crazy/a constant bottleneck). As above, the staff are AMAZING, particularly the night guys. Helped book me a bus ticket, super friendly to chat with, all around good people. Right in the thick of Chinatown, food stalls/night markets galore. And safe! Highly recommended!

                  pleasantly surprised. ”

                  I got a bed in the 8 bed mixed dormitory, and the pictures are quite accurate. You are assigned a bed cubicle with a locker. Decent side table space next to the bed with a universal plug. I was leaving Yangon by bus in the evening, and without prompt, they offered to keep my luggage while I was out during the day, and even advised me to keep my shower to let me take a shower later when I came back for my things. Staff spoke reasonable English and were incredibly helpful. The WiFi is REALLY spotty particularly in the rooms and had to be constantly reset. In true Burmese fashion, they also air condition the rooms to point of refrigeration, but with your privacy curtain and the blanket, it should be warm enough. The shared bathrooms were also constantly cleaned and were one of the most spotless I've ever seen in a hostel. Breakfast is nothing spectacular (boiled egg, toast, coffee), but fine. For less than $10 USD, if you're just passing through for a night or two, this is a great deal.

                  The best hostel in YANGON”

                  I got the best experience while stayed here for 3 nights. Everything is fine. Location on Chinatown, easy to travel to anywhere even you want to walk, get bus or taxi. Easy for food, full with food stalls, local coffe shops, fine restaurants and supermarket. All staffs are friendly and full with service mind. Cleanliness is quite good. Overall i will staying at Wayfarer's rest if I travel to Yangon again. I don't want anything more than they can provide so this place is perfect for me. They have some bed bugs on my bed or maybe blanket, not sure...just a little bit so i dont mind and wifi down sometimes.

                  Great place to stay in Yangon if you are a backpacker! Good price, very clean, great beds and the staff is very helpful. It's located in the heart of the city, where you can see the true people of Yangon. The only thing I would improve is the breakfast.

                  We were there one night only coz there are not many things to see in Yangon. The room and bathrooms are clean and spacious. The staff were nice, super friendly and helpful, and they let us take shower even we were check out already but they don’t speak English much though except one guy in the afternoon when we were there. I deffo recommend friends this hostel.

                  They are accommodating. We stayed there when we arrived in Yangon before our transit to Pyay. They helped us to book the bus ticket to Pyay. They are nice and we did not hesitate to contact them via Facebook and asked them if they can book 2 beds for my friend and I because we were going to arrive earlier prior to our flight back to Viet Nam. They gave us the same rate as what we originally booked in Agoda. They allow us to keep our things after our check out. Overall, I am very much satisfied with their service.

                  I have nothing negative to say about this hostel. The bathrooms were always clean, the beds big with enough space to store a trekking bag next to it and, most important for me, the staff always had a smile on their faces, was very friendly and even let me store some of my luggage there until I come back to Yangon in two weeks. I felt very welcomed!

The beds are incredibly comfortable and the curtain blocks out light really well, the staff are super friendly and it's spotlessly clean. Add a very good price to this and a good location and it's a definite winner!

                  Great location, right near the edge of Chinatown and in the middle of the downtown area. Facilities are quite modern: hot showers, lots of shampoo/soap, AC bedrooms, decent dorm beds. Some of the staff has decent English too. I remember Koko (not sure if I am spelling that correctly) was quiet at first, but once I got him talking, he was very kind and helpful :). He even recommended some more remote beaches near his hometown - I didn't have time to go since my visa was running out, but maybe next time! I would definitely stay here again, especially for the cheap price compared to other parts of Myanmar.
