Set a little away from the action on Botataung Pagoda Road, Hninn Si Budget Inn is one of the best budget hotels in Yangon and should be at the top of the list for any budget traveller looking for lodgings that are both affordable and clean.

Difficult to say, easy to find.

Difficult to say, easy to find.

Open for a little over a year, the lodgings are above a mobile phone shop (which transforms into the breakfast area in the morning) and the single and double rooms, all with shared bathroom, are immaculate. No scuffed walls and bruised doors here. I had a single room and with it came a small table to toss on all my stuff and a firm, plastic wrapped mattress. The free WiFi works well; such a pleasure when the simple things just work as they should.

At the end of each corridor are the shared bathrooms, and in a phrase we don’t often use to describe bathrooms in Burma, they’re polished and clean. At least one staffer on every floor keeps an eye on everything and, while I could be mistaken, I’m pretty sure the affable manager/owner commented that they’re required to clean the bathrooms five times daily. Regardless, they’re really, really clean — I wouldn’t eat a fried egg off the shower floor, but I’d happily have a shower in there.

The manager speaks fluent English and is extremely helpful with both information about Yangon and onwards travel arrangements. I found all the information she gave me to be honest and reliable — and she’s friendly to boot!

Doesn't get simpler, but super clean and functional.

Breakfast is a simple affair, but it’s included in the price, so you can’t really fault them there — would be good to see some more local food on offer though. Free water is available all day.

The only real disadvantage of staying here is the location. You’re close to the expat watering hole at 51st Street but you’re otherwise a solid 30-minute walk from Sule Pagoda and the centre of the action. If you enjoy walking in Yangon, like I did, that need not be a bad thing.

In a town full of overpriced fleapits, Hninn Si Budget Inn is a shining light but the high season rates are quite high.

Note: If you’re in a cab coming from the airport, chances are they won’t know Hninn Si Budget Inn, so ask for the Orchid Hotel (which they all know) and it’s just a few doors down.
