Ostello Bello Bagan Mar 19, 2017
Ostello Bello was not my choice to go in Bagan. I cant stand overpriced hostels that charge simple dorm bed the same way as smaller hotels price their rooms… But then, I did not want to have room and no people to hang around with, so I took the overpriced thing.

This hostels are run by Italian management that made deal with some local guy and opened this European style lodging. They are making killing on the monopoly they made. Only locals can have hotels or hostels, so making the deal with the local was their way in and they are already spreading to other parts of the Myanmar.

Hostel is located away from the bus station, on the other side of the temples area. That’s not bad because bus companies send their pick up vehicle to get you from your hotel/hostel so you are set that way. This little village has plethora of good food and restaurants that also serve some European food.

There are two ways to explore the valley and easier one is with Electric scooter. You can also paddle your bike, but in the middle of the day sun I would not like to be you… Scooters are not fast, but they have some speed in them and they will last 2-3 hours of driving full speed. It is illegal for foreigners to drive normal scooter or motorbike in this area, and police is pretty excited to stop you.

Scooters you can rent just outside of the hostel door. They are 7000 per day and worth every penny…

Ostelo Bello is two story building with nice rooftop. On the rooftop they have sweet set up with lots of chairs and room full of beds where you can lay and have siesta time. There is also a shower on the rooftop and bunch of games that you can play.

Yard around the hostel is also filled with chairs and tables. It is nice and shady, with good internet and cold beer that you can order from the bar. Bar also has some food, and in the morning they serve pretty good breakfast. My favorite was swing seats under the shade…

Reception is very helpful. They have bunch of travel books that you can borrow and figure out where you want to go. They also have few folders with the interesting things you can do in the area and transportation options and time tables.

Dorm was excellent, four beds and very nice bathroom. Hot water all the time, super clean and organized. They supply the towel so you can save yours. Bed was comfortable, and it had slide in lockers on the bottom. Every bed has power and light. Internet connection is excellent for what you can find in rest of Myanmar.

You will get basic map of the area from the hostel, but for more detailed map stop by tourist information stands or pick them up in the larger hotels. Hostel makes food, but I like to give chance to locals and they did not disappoint me in any way.

Great Atmosphere Hostel Jul 06, 2016
you will like it at first place, good atmosphere and they have free activities on different nights and good place to meet other travelers. the breakfast is nice and bed is quite comfortable and staff is very friendly and helpful too. unfortunately for a budget hostel their f&b is slightly high for most of people who stayed in there, often just go across the road. across the street they have motorbike rental company that aso offers free laundry. They have coffee and tea complimentary for the whole day.
