Easy choice given its monopoly of Hsipaw, but overrated
The hostel was fine - I had a small single room which was tidy though tired and in need to renovation - this characterised the whole property. The breakfast was a highlight - a buffet with noodles, eggs etc.! Staff varied - some were helpful and attentive, others laughed when I tried to rent a bike to head out for sunset!

The best staff and breakfast!
I stayed with a friend 2 nights in Mr Charles. They picked up us with a tuck tuck from the bus station and gave us a glass of juice. That was very nice. The rooms were nothing special, beds alright, quite hot and noisy.. the breakfast amazing, buffet, all you can eat with lot of options! So delicious. I am vegan and they cooked for me special noddles without egg. Also they kept our backpacks safe in a storage room while we were trekking. When i left by bus to Inle i forgot my phone charger and the staff kept it and sent it to me by bus the next day. They were concerned until the last minute that i receive well my package. Really, they called me and email me to cover every detail of the delivery. I would really reccomend to stay here. Thanks a lot!!

Good budget place to stay in Hsipaw
Mr Charles is generally very good value for money. There are single rooms with fans which are very basic but comfortable. However, the walls are very thin so you will hear people next door!! Good buffet-style breakfast. Friendly and helpful staff with info on trekking and bus tickets to other places. Bathrooms are clean and showers have plenty of hot water.

Don't go here - spent your money at a small guesthouse
The breakfast was very good, the price for the room was cheap, which resulted in a tiny room with no windows and dirty sheets. The staff is friendly, but there are sooo many people working that they only talk with each other and don't notice if you are standing there at the reception with a question. The last day we had a 5am bus and the people at the hostel promised a good breakfast to go including fried rice and coffee. We reminded them twice about the breakfast, but the next morning there was no breakfast and we quickly got 3 old toasts, 2 old bananas and instant coffee (no hot water). We regret staying at this guesthouse. Please, Don't go to this place. We talked with locals and they told us that de Mr charles family is very rich and gets all the money from the travellers and use it to keep on growing, it's better to go to an other place to better divide the money in this region.

Enjoyed my stay
I had a very small single room but didn't need any more space. Breakfast was impressive for a hostel/hotel: veg rice, veg noodles, egg, traditional noodle soup, pancakes, toast & jam, banana, green tea, good coffee, orange juice, help yourself as much as you want. Organises tours, trekking, hires cycles but I had problems with my bike. Overall very good.

Most popular option when visiting Hsipaw
The lady from the Charles Hotel was so helpful, incredible. She gave me so many tips and her English is perfect! Thank you. The guesthouse is a little bit more backpackerish but it does the trick of you do not have high standards. The bathrooms are outside so you will have to go there from your room. Breakfast is great! There is a buffet with everything you want and need.
