    Hey backpackers,

    I am traveling to Myanmar tomorrow and wondering if anyone had any experiences with relatively cheap hostels in Myanmar. I definitely plan on going to Inle Lake, Bagan, Mandalay and Yangon. I am open to suggestions for other places but any recommended hostels in these or other cities are greatly appreciate.

    Thank you!

    Somtam2000 recently did a trip report for his travels through Burma. One of the things he mentioned is that accommodation is not cheap there, and that you'll usually get above Thailand prices for below Laos standards. Because of that, you may need to bump up your accommodation budget so you can still be comfortable and enjoy yourself.

    Sorry I don't have specific suggestions, but you can read Somtam's report here:


    There are always the accommodations listings pages on Travelfish, and checking with other travellers once you arrive to see what they can tell you.

    Best wishes.
