Feels Like Home di Space Boutique Hostel Yangon


Landing di negara baru, antri imigrasi dan dapat stempel negara baru, lalu keluar ketemu orang-orang dengan kultur dan bahasa baru!

Mingalabar! Selamat datang di Yangon, mantan ibu kota Myanmar yang sepintas tampak seperti Jakarta atau Surabaya di era 80-an.

Sebagai backpacker, yang pertama dicari di destinasi baru salah satunya tentu penginapan alias hostel yang bersih, aman, nyaman, murah, deket destinasi wisata dan tempat kuliner (yang terakhir ini perlu dicetak tebel).

As a backpacker, what will you find for after landing in the new country and new city? A hostel of course! A clean, safe, comfortable and cheap hostel. In addition, it should be close to the tourist attraction and easy to find some local food.

Selama di Yangon, saya menginap di Space Boutique Backpacker Hostel. Tak sulit mencari lokasi hostel ini, tinggal cari perempatan sebelum Sule Pagoda dan Bogyoke Market, di deretan ruko sebelah kanan (kira-kira tiga bangunan dari perempatan) ada tulisan “Space Boutique Hostel”. Kamu harus naik anak tangga yang cukup sempit menuju lantai 4! No problem sih karena begitu masuk hostel, suasana akan sangat nyaman, dingin (AC), plus langsung minum segelas Capucino gratis!

Pelayanan di Space Boutique Hostel sangat ramah dan memuaskan. Kami tiba siang hari dan diperbolehkan untuk menaruh tas dan ransel ketika kami akan jalan-jalan ke beberapa tempat di sekitar hostel. Padahal kami baru akan menginap dua hari berikutnya, setelah kembali dari Bagan dan Khaikhtiyo.

While in Yangon, I stay in Space Boutique Hostel, a fairly quiet and comfortable hostel in the middle of the hot and crowded city of Yangon. The hostel is quite easy to find because it has a very strategic location, near an intersection before Sule Pagoda, one of many famous pagoda in the downtown of Yangon.

I’am very satisfied with the services at Space Boutique Hostel, and it is very friendly. Me and two friends was arrived during the day and allowed to put  our backpacks when we would walk to a few places around the hostel, although will stay there two days later, after returning from Bagan and Khaikhtiyo.

Kamu bisa seharian baca buku atau nulis blog di hostel ini kalo lagi males jalan-jalan keluar.

The rooms contains four and six beds, it’s very comfortable and equipped with air conditioner. Each guest given two towels, a bathroom with a western toilet and hot shower. There are female dormitory available for women. The other facilities at the hostel are free wifi, free breakfast, and free-flow for different types of coffee! If you like to read books or write a blog, it’s the perfect hostel to spend your days in Yangon.

Hostel ini juga menyediakan shuttle dari dan ke airport. Jaraknya hostel-airport cuma sekitar 30 km, tapi inget di Yangon gak ada sepeda motor dan jalanan super-macet-banget dengan mobil dan bis kota. Jadi, ya kira-kira bisa satu-dua jam lah dari hostel ke bandara. Space Boutique juga punya paket city tour Yangon dan tour luar kota. Ownernya sangar ramah, namanya Mr. Richie. Bahasa Inggrisnya cukup fasih dan lancar. Dia banyak membantu kami selama di Yangon, termasuk menunjukkan tempat-tempat yang bisa dituju dan arah menuju Aung Mingalar, terminal bis tempat kami berangkat menuju Bagan.

They’re also provides a shuttle from the hostel to airport, vice versa. The distance from hostel to the Yangon International Airport are about 30 km, but it can be taken up to one or two hours because the damned-jammed traffic of Yangon. The hostel also has several tour packages around Yangon. The hostel owner, Mr. Richie, very friendly and helped us during in Yangon, including shows some locations such as Bogyoke Market, Kandawgyi Lake, Shwedagon Pagoda, and several places to enjoy local food.
