Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I am staying at YMCA in Yangon for the mean time of finding jobs. The place offers decent room and room services. It includes a fan with rooms and air-conditioned rooms. It is your choice of stay in YMCA.

This place can be rent with reasonable prices for training and meetings. There are rooms for 20 people, 50 people. Only one thing is , this building is not barrier free as there is no elevator it is difficult for wheel chair users. There are also room rental. This place is in central Yangon and easy accessible and can also explore around old architecture buildings of Yangon. This place is very close to weekend book market which is also interesting place for book lovers.

Booked to stay here in what my wife who is from Myanmar was told was a superior room. The elevator was not working so it was a climb to the sixth floor at midday in hot season. The room while spacious does not appear to have had a paint job since the 1940's. The air con was the type that sits in a window and had no control, you had to stand in the bed to switch it on and off. The bed linen though clean was stained. The charge was 35 USD per day for me plus an extra 5 USD per day for my wife to stay in the room with me and that charge was the local price so I can only guess that for a foreign couple to stay in this room it would be 35 x 2. Breakfast (if I dare call it that) is included and was oily rice and fried egg, one day,some strange bread with margarine and sugar the next, and a cup of instant coffee. Saving graces were the friendly staff. I know the income helps good causes but to offer such poor amenities at such high a price is just taking advantage of people. We moved out after 3 days and found a much better place at the same price. Review to follow.

Since 2006 the prices have gone thru the roof in Burma, yet sadly the quality has not. I can overlook that because I do love Burma like no other country. I stayed here last Dec and enjoyed my stay. Our double room was clean, air-con worked, we had a view over the city, the breakfast was the poorest I've eaten but again the setting was great. An open fire, an elegant old lady and an egg of bread. As a photographer I loved it.

Was staying in a quadriple room for one week plus and find everything was just "okay". 60USD per night per room, inclusive of: 1. very simple breakfast**, 2. acceptable cleanliness of the room, 3. good air-conditioned (room 605) though my friends staying in other room complained about noisy aircond. 4. Very spacious and clean bathroom, with good water pressure. 5. Strategic location (old hight court, baptist church, independence monumen was within walking distance. Outside there are some local hawkers.) 6. Poor WIFI coverage 7. Church at forth floor. ** these are the menu of breakfast i was served throughout the whole week, not much changes. 1. two plain toast, one banana, fried egg, a cup of instant premixed coffee 2. Fried rice with bean, banana, a cup of coffee. 3. A cup of coffee and Myanmar vermicili in soup (Oh-no Kwau-Tskwe) which costs around 200 kyat if u bought it outside. Equivalent to 0.3 USD. The whole building was rather old. If this is not YMCA, I would probably rate 1 star because this price is really very very expensive. Since this is YMCA which i believe that part of my hotel fees will go into donation, i give it 5 stars, for having all basic things that i need.

This place is just ok. The people are friendly and your money goes to support good causes, so those are definitely pluses. The rooms, however, are not very clean or nice at all, and if you are in the cheapest rooms the shared bathrooms are pretty terrible. In fact, some of the rooms with private bathrooms are also pretty terrible. It's a good place to meet expats-- this seems to be a stopping place for those staying in country for a while, but not long enough to have an apartment. You'll meet people a little more familiar with city and get good recommendations on where to go and what to see. It's also a very convenient location for easy access to lots of great sites around the city. So, if you're a solo traveler looking to make some friends and you need a well-located, affordable spot, this is an ok choice, but you may want to shop around first and see if you can find anything better.

This place has very old world charm. Ever watch a movie set in the past, 40s, 50s, 60s, and think to yourself, I wonder what it was like to live back then? Well, at least at this YMCA, you get to experience that. Of course, since the building seems to be exactly the same as when the British left it (in 1947?). that does mean it is, well, full of grime. No matter how hard the cleaning ladies try, they can't hide 70 years without renovation. If experiencing that excites you, you are going to love this place. If not, you better look elsewhere (but then again, you might not want to come to Burma anytime soon anyway since all but the most expensive places are similar). The people here could not be nicer. Their English is terrible, but that doesn't stop them from trying to help. They employ (or are they volunteers?) people of all ages who run around the hallways doing stuff. You walk by karate class, choir rehearsal, meetings, et cetera. This really is a YMCA. And as the placard says somewhere in the building, 'staying at the YMCA is helping the needy.' That's both them and we the weary, less than wealthy traveller.

We chose YMCA because it was reasonably priced and some of the money went to projects in Myanmar, and none to the Govt. It is in a quieter area, a poorer area, and well located to walk to most places in the city centre. There is 24hr reception, lift and porters willing to assist you any time, they were very helpful. The room was huge, good air con, spotless and serviced daily. The en suite was basic but all worked OK. There are good cafes and restaurants nearby. Our breakfast was basic, egg, toast, coffee and fruit, but delivered to our room each day. We stayed at a 'better' ($95) hotel with our tour but were much happier at the Y, at least there was hot water!

YMCA is probably a great buy for Yangon where hotels and Guest Houses are in very short supply. I paid $20 for a very large single room with bath and a small breakfast. It had A/C (a must in Yangon) lots of hot water. The room had seen better days but it was clean with no sign of any bugs or insects. The staff like everywhere in Myanmar were great. Their English was very limited but they made a great effort and were always very willing to give directions and buy bus tickets for me.. I did not go there with high expectations and was happy with my choice. It has a fairly central location in the downtown area. They will give you a free airport pickup if you are staying for 3 days or more. Good deal as the airport is a good way from downtown.
