Little Yangon Hostel @ Yangon, Myanmar

By : Chha

Lil or Little Yangon Hostel which is located at Kyauktada Township at Yangon downtown is where I stay during my visit to Yangon, Myanmar. Little Yangon Hostel mission is to create a true backpacker experience for all their guests around the world. Sule Pagoda is 500 meters from Little Yangon Hostel, while Shwedagon Pagoda is 3.3 km away, so if you are fit enough to walk that far, then you can cut some cost by walking all the way to Shwedagon Pagoda. The nearest airport is Yangon International Airport which is 15 km from Little Yangon Hostel and you can easily get Taxi to come here which cost $ 10.00. Yangon downtown is a great choice for travelers who is interested in street food, city walks and street markets.

I arrived at Little Yangon Hostel at night and the road leading to Little Yangon Hostel is dark and quiet. I was a little skeptical over all the good comments that i get from the internet of how good they say Little Yangon Hostel is after seeing this little dark street leading to Little Yangon Hostel and was worry of how Little Yangon Hostel will turn out to be, but i was relieve that Little Yangon Hostel did turn out to be as good as the review said it is. Thumbs up ! Though the street here is dark and dimly lit with few florescent light used as street lamp, i do feel safe walking in and out this street at night without feeling intimidated or unsafe.

The reception and common area for Little Yangon Hostel is across the street to where my room is so i have to cross the street to get to my room and cross the street again to the breakfast area. For me, it is not hard to do so, as the street is not a busy street and crossing it daily is not a problem.

The moment i reach there for check in, i am being welcome by the staff there with a cup of juice, i can't remember is it orange or mango as i was so busy checking in, haha !

The me, the room here is comfortable and the bed is clean. The room have air conditioner making it cold for the hot weather at Yangon. Clean towel is provided and their shared toilet is clean with shower though it looks a little old but to me, it is good enough.

Breakfast is also provided.

Little Yangon Hostel does serve tasty breakfast with few different food to choose from. There is bread with Strawberry Jam, Eggs, Noodles, Fruits, Plain Water and Coffee. I love their noodles but their soup is a little bit salty. I am not sure about the variety of the breakfast serve here because i only stay one night, so only had one morning with breakfast. Their service is good as well. Little Yangon Hostel also take the effort to organize Trip To Explore Yangon City By Circular Train With Their Local Staff. Any of their customer can sign up for the trip by filling up their names on the notice board provided at the reception area. They also this white board with names of people who are looking for someone to share taxi with. The white board will have names, date, time and location of where the taxi will go, so if you are interested to cut cost and share taxi with any of the people there in Little Yangon Hostel, then you can tell the staff to put in your name. You can also request Little Yangon Hostel to arrange for taxi to go Aung Mingalar Bus Terminal which only cost Ks 12000.

Overall, i had a good experience staying here in Little Yangon Hostel and would recommend anyone who is visiting Yangon to stay here.
