Overpriced

3.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 28 Aug 2017via mobile
We came here from Yangon, and we were shocked at the price even when booking, but we'd heard good things so went for it. The hostel was nice, really clean and modern with a nice roof. However, it was not worth £14 a night for a dorm room - I've stayed in places this nice for less than half the price. The clientele were fairly gap yah and pretentious but I suppose that's just luck of the draw.

I would recommend it for the cleanliness and free tour - however the staff and price let the place down.

I really enjoyed my stay at the Ostello Bello Bagan as it's perfect to meet new people and a great place to explore the temples. The hostel offers several free tours, which I didn't do, but which are great if you don't want to explore on your own. Breakfast was not as great as in the Ostello Bello Mandalay, but also nice. I appreciated the free coffee, water and tea and the concierge service that booked my bus to Inle Lake. Rooms are spacious and convenient. I can thus really recommend staying here.

As a budget solo traveler, this would be the great place to stay. Comfort bed in a quiet environment with a simple european breakfast provided is really suitable for relaxing. And as usual, Ostello Bello held different tours like going for sunrise, which is really good.

Stayed 3 nights here and on the last night had to switch to a double room because our room had been booked, it cost 60 $ for a double room!!!! Pretty extortionate if you ask me. The room was clean but basic and we had to stay as we didn't want to bother finding a new place... lesson learned!

Food was overpriced and of poor quality... walk down the street for better, cheaper food. On the menu they have a dish called 'chicken fingers' which describes breaded chicken with artisanal hand cut potatoes. Those 'artisanal hand cut potatoes' are in fact frozen pre packaged fries. Sort it out!

We arrived at 5.30 am and could not check in until 2pm which is fine considering that is the check in time. We were however really disappointed to discover that the two females on reception (one western and one local) had failed to inform us that we couldn't use the rooftop to shower and sleep. Instead they watched us wait in the reception for 7 hours all tired and groggy. They knew we were waiting to check in as we kept enquiring if the room was ready. I don't know why they didn't direct us to the rooftop or why this wasn't communicated to us upon arrival.

We had a good stay and it's good for travellers but feel it was overpriced for a hostel of its quality. Don't rent from the ebike store next door and definitely don't do laundry with them - too expensive! Walk down the road for cheaper options.

Like it's sister hostel in Mandalay, OB Bagan is close to great... but no cigar.

Although I had only stayed one of the three nights booked, there had been a miscommunication amongst staff and my bed had been rehomed.

All good, no problem at all. I'll just go to the front desk and the kind staff will rewrite their wrongs.

Sbagliato. I was far from right.

The staff were disinterested and at first almost unwilling to admit their mistake.

After about 30mins they realised their blew and it was sorted.

But, it was an issue that shouldn't have risen and no apology was given after.

Beautiful hostel?

Nope. Fanculo delusione.

Ostello Bello is a really friendly & european style hostels! I've been to the 3 ostello bello of Myanmar and they have clean dorms, clean bathrooms. In bagan there is a rooftop where you can sleep if you arrive before check-in. You can have a shower as well if you have already checked out. They do games on the evening and the living room is really chill and you can meet people there. You can book bus, motorbike and everything from the hostel.
