Worst bathrooms ever
Can't even begin to describe how atrocious the bathrooms are, to the point of not even wanting to use them. Cracked, filthy, unflushable. A nightmare. The whole place is in serious disrepair, Wi-fi doesn't work, bed was dirty, but it is cheap. Trek info they gave us was a lot more expensive than elsewhere so pays to book elsewhere.

Value for a cheap stay
Very cheap, bed sheets were clean but the rooms are old and the building needs love, but it is fine for a night or two. We used the shared shower and toilet which is fine, just wear flip flops as its not the cleanest of bathrooms but its not the worst either; the shower is hot and powerful. Good WiFi.

Value for money
The hotel is very cheap, thus facilities are very basic. During our stay, most of the time there were no water (neither cold, nor hot) in the private bathroom, thus had to use shared bathrooms. You get what you pay for.

This could be a nice place, yet the owners are really aweful and the hostel is a real dump. The showers only give boiling hot water, the toilets are a disgrace.

rude staff, gross hostel, no wifi
offered great trek to inle lake, location was walkable from bus station
obviously, this was the cheapest guest house we could find, so we were a little apprehensive to begin with. we read some other reviews, but thought, "how bad could it be?" the toilets were cracked and disgusting, our room was questionable, and we didn't have windows. the lady at the front desk (robin's sister apparently?) was nice when we first checked in, and incredibly rude every interaction we had with her afterwards. the best thing about this place was the trek to inle lake we booked through robin.

Decided to leave the hostel
Dirty rooms and facilities, The owner is a rude old lady that only see tourists as walking dollars. It is the cheapest option in Kalaw so she doen't care about treating the guests right. We decided to leave the hostel, Golden Kalaw In is only a few steps away and the rooms are way nicer and the staff friendly.

Rude owner
Horrible place I ever stayed, not the place itself, it's standard. So oke for the price but the owner was really rude and unfriendly. She kicked me out of the hostel for no reason. I asked her 2 times something about the bus I booked with her because she made me pay to much then she just said, I cancel it and you go out my hostel. She gave me the money back and it was done, she wouldn't talk to me anymore. So if you stay there don't book anything with them cause they let you pay to much and if you're reaction is not satisfied for her she will kick you out.

My worst experience after 4 years traveling
I have been continuesly traveling for 4 years and my girlfriend for 3 years. This is my first bad review in all these years. We had a very disappointing experience with the Golden Lily Guesthouse. You would think it is the cheapest in town so you can expect you get barely anything. But it is not even the cheapest in town. Just the best known cheapest in town. We were right about barely getting anything though. We arrived in the middle of the night with the bus. We booked a room because we like to jump into a bed immediatly to still get some sleep. So we booked in advance and also paid. But when we arrived in the guesthouse they told us there was no room for us. We explained that we booked, but it did not matter. No room is no room. They put us on a matras on the floor, next to the garbage, were they usually put people that don't have a booking and told us we could stay untill twelve and then we had to leave. The next morning the owner asked us if we wanted to stay another night. I was almost sure she wanted to make it up with us after we hardly slept because the matras was next to the kitchen too, were the staff started working early. To be sure I just asked if we needed to pay for that. Her answer was if we wanted to book or not! When I looked at her with a face written allover "What do you want from me?", she finally replied, ofcourse you have to pay. I explained the situation again ,but it didn't matter. So I politely refused. We could stay untill twelve so had the chance to test the promised hot showers and the wifi. No hot showers were available and talking with other guest appareantly we were lucky that there was water at all. The wifi barely worked. So our stay in this guesthouse basically resulted in a very expensive breakfast. When we walked around after this small disaster we found the Mya Sabai Inn on the main road with rooms for 7 dollars per person. Nothing special, but a lot cleaner than Lily guesthouse. And another guesthouse a little further was
