Your best option! Jul 19, 2012
Well, the backpacking scene in Myanmar is not cheap and more likely the most expensive among South East Asia after Singapore. However, the Myanmar people is most likely the nicest people in the world.

This inn is not so cheap but the price comes with airport transfer. After you minus off the taxi fare, it comes almost the same. The staff is very nice and efficient. When I was there, there is no low season, they are full every night. The staff is honest, whenever we ask about the taxi fare to anywhere, we were able to tell the taxi driver that is the fare. Bus ticket, airline ticket, tour, anything they would help.

I will go back for sure.

Great service, good room, but a bit inconvenient Aug 19, 2011
I stayed there on my last day of my trip in Burma.

They had cozy nice room, and bathroom was small but clean, and I really liked that they had big towel and small towel provided 2 sets per room!

They were also flexible about arrangement of the breakfast. You can order Burmese breakfast if you order at the reception 1 day prior, and for those who leave earlier than the breakfast time, they would arrange continental breakfast even it's before their regular breakfast time. It was great.

And if you are flying in/out with international flights, they will provide you free transport. They would come to the airport anytime to pick you up, and send you off twice a day.

I paid $16 for AC room with inside bath. I thought it was a good deal.

But the biggest negative point was the location, it was located 1 mile away from the city center. It would cost you a bit more if you are taking taxi to get around.

Perfect spot to start out in Burma Aug 17, 2011
Next time I go to Yangon, I'll definitely stay at the Motherland again. It was a bit disconcerting to get off my Air Asia flight from Bangkok and realize that about a third of the flight would be staying at the same hotel, but with the free pick up from the airport and very knowledgeable English speaking staff, not to mention possibly the quickest internet in Burma (which isn't saying much), it makes it a no brainer. The product lives up to the hype.

(Sidenote, order the Mohinga from the staff the night before. It is delicious and is generally the envy of everyone who just went with the standard Western fare)

Motherland Inn 2 May 05, 2010
Situated just outside the centre of Yangon, this is perhaps the largest hotel for backpackers to stay. The place is nice enough - they organise free drop offs and pick ups to and from the airport if your flight is in the morning. The staff are very friendly, but you do feel like bit of a number. The breakfast spread is average, but Western and Myanmar options are available (for Myanmar breakfast options, you make your choice the night before). They do have internet access, which costs about 1 USD per hour. A supermarket is less than 5 minutes walk away too, making it an ideal base to stock up on essentials. Although the hotel are quite keen to arrange ticket bookings for you, the service can be a little slow and it's more appropriate for you to go to the agent yourself. The rooms (whichever ones you choose) are spacious, with decent beds and air conditioning. The bathrooms are clean enough but the showers don't always have hot water or decent pressure.

In general, I thought this was a reasonable hotel to stay at but is good value when you consider their prices. The two key selling points about this hostel are that its large (you do get to meet some friendly people to share tales with) and that they provide an airport service (as long as your flights arrive and depart in the morning, you are likely to save a few dollars of cab fare).
