Ostello Bello Mandalay

Top choice hostel in Mandalay
Image by Booking.com

The best hostel in Mandalay by some distance. Comfy dorms with their own bathrooms, free pasta snacks, a rooftop terrace, a busy bar, communal area and solicitous service mean you'll need to book ahead. Activities run the gamut from free nighttime Burmese language lessons on the rooftop to well-priced full-day trips out to Dee Dote Waterfall.

It's part of the Ostello Bello brood, with highly recommended branches in New Bagan and Nyaungshwe.
