Cheaper than nearby ET guesthouse, central Mandalay location which has the downside of sparse local eating options. We stayed in a fan room w/ shared bathroom on the second floor for $17 a night. Room had window but the view was a brick wall about 20cm away, so got incredibly hot after occupying the room after about an hour. You will sweat all night and you will do your best to minimise time spent in here as much as possible. Shared bathrooms was good and clean. Staff were friendly and helpful. Wifi is practically unusable but that's been my experience pretty much everywhere in Myanmar. Now for the real saving grace, this place has a lovely rooftop area which isn't really advertised anywhere and you basically have to discover on your own. We met a few travellers at this guest house and ended up having a couple of rather merry nights up on this roof. Made for an overall good memory of the place!
