have not been paid to make this recommendation or given free accommodation in return for it.

There are plenty of decent places to stay in Yangon these days. More are opening all the time. I recommend this one for two reasons. 1. It’s where I stay myself so I know it, I did not just pop in for a quick look around. 2. I think its dormitory offers a very good option for budget travellers who don’t want to slum it – particularly if travelling solo which I often do.
