Review: Ma Ma Guesthouse, Mandalay, Myanmar – From $50 USD / Room

Despite the romantic connotations of the city’s name, thanks entirely to Kipling (who actually spent only three days in the country!), Mandalay comes with the traffic and pollution problems that you’d expect in any large Southeast Asian city. If you’re looking for a place to relax, a home from home amid the city buzz, look no further than the aptly named ‘Ma Ma Guesthouse’, run by lovely husband and wife team, Win and Su.

Voted best hostel in Indonesia by Hostel World in 2016 it’s clear to see exactly why Depa House is so popular. From the amazing rooms to the lovely people who run it, there’s no better place to stay during your visit to Ubud.

A Taste of Luxury. A Backpacker Takes Time Away From the Hostel Route!

“Excuse me miss, but where are your shoes? In order to enjoy the breakfast buffet you will need to wear footwear.” This was a new environment. A private butler was on call 24/7, my bathroom was the size of the most splurge worthy accommodations I had enjoyed from time to time after a few too many night buses, and I was graced with a view more spectacular than any sky bar I had ever been to. Luxury to say the least was not something I was accustomed to. Journalist and backpacker Tyler Protano-Goodwin finds herself amidst a whole new world, forcing her to reflect on why she choose the backpacking lifestyle in the first place!
