Multiple range of accommodations are available in most of Major cities. In Some small cities, luxury hotels are not available. Home stay and hostel are still not permitted as per Myanmar law. But some community based camp are grant for home stay.
Hostels are available starting the rate of 7$ but not sure how’s things going. Better stay a bit cheap Bed & Breakfast hotel if you concern about price and safe travel. We (Take me to Myanmar) clearly do not sell hostel and homestay since we are concern about safety for travelers.
Most of day time staffs at hotels are speaking English. You may get some travel information from them. Hotel grade and its service are not really reflect in some of 1, 2, 3 star hotel.
We are doing personal assessment on hotels to list in our website.
In Yangon, traffic is quite considerable for self traveler. For safety and budget concern, you may stay at a bit uptown hotel like 3 star standard and rent private car for whole day. If you are traveling 2 or more friends or family, Take me to Myanmar also arrange nice program with public bus that is very competitive price to self travel.
Anyhow like other countries, if the price goes down , we could not expect very good service as return.
