Dirty and grubby accommodation”
Very basic and cheap accommodation. It doesn't need to be dirty and grubby just for being cheap.

Don't trust the bad comments, try for yourself! :)”
We read very bad things about this guesthouse but we decided to give it a try because it was the cheapest in Kalaw we could find and most of the bad comments were already from 2016 and oh boy, I guess a lot has changed since then! This was the nicest place we stayed in, in whole Myanmar. Definitely not when you are into clean, modern hostels with spotless bathrooms and big rooms but we stayed in a (very) small cozy room with wooden walls and a lot of light. The breakfast was amazing and we always had leftover for lunch, the staff was very friendly and helpfull with everything! The location is also perfect. The hot shower worked and the bathrooms were not very pleasant to the eye but always clean! Honestly, I could not say a bad thing about this guesthouse. We felt at home!

Fine for a one night crash”
I’m a backpacker so I have pretty low standards. The bed was very comfortable and the breakfast was lovely. It’s the cheapest option in town and it shows: the bathrooms are gross, there is no soap near the sinks, the WiFi doesn’t work, and there is no heat and it gets REALLY cold at night in Kalawa.

Very good for a backpacker”
Robin and Lily were very friendly, honest and kind with us. The room was good, breakfast was good, but the toilet very dirty. The best sightseeing from Kalaw to Inle Lake, because it's not so touristic. I strongly reccomend it!!!

Fleas everywhere”
There were fleas in our room and we spent the entire three day trekk with them cuz they were in our clothes and bags. The bathrooms were also gross. We always go for the cheapest options but these time is one of those that it was definitely not a good idea. It's worth it to spend an extra few dollars and go somewhere

Worst hotel in Myanmar ”
We have been in almost 15 low cost hotels in our trip to Myanmar, but this is clearly the worst of all them. The only positive is the breakfast, not sublime, but decent. The rest is awful. I think this is not an hotel, this is a travel agency with a refugee for his clients. They will push you to buy their expensive trekkings and tours all the time, from the first minute. Rooms are tiny, only one bed and 40 cm to leave your things. Not enough space in room and they don't have a common space to socialise. The staff is nice except for Lily and her sister, that are rude and unhelpfully. For instance, when we ask for the non-working wifi they said "try in the night, not my problem" and when we ask to leave our luggage after check out, she said "you have to go and take your things, we have no space for your backpack" and when we replied for the bad answer she just said "my hotel, my rules". So assume you will not have wifi and can't leave your luggage.

The beds were comfortable and clean, the bathrooms had hot water and the breakfast is good. It's a bit grotty and there's only 2 toilets that don't really work but it's what I expected for the price.

cheap place, but could need some renovation”
Cheap place to stay, but don't expect too much ;) Small rooms, only one of the 2 showers on our floor worked, thin walls. Breakfast with coffee, tea, pancakes and fruits included. You can also book a trekking trip with the brother of the owner, but we booked at another agency.

Awful place”
Booked a standard room, but put in an economy room. Mentioned it to the owner and in a surprised manner she asked if I'd like to change room. This could be an honest mistake, but from speaking to others I expert it wasn't. The standard room was ok, but a bit grotty, but the bathroom was falling to pieces. The shower was cold, and it had a resident cockroach. I couldn't get a wifi signal in my room. Tried to connect in the in area but couldn't. I was told that "sometimes it doesn't work". The people that own the place are miserable unfriendly people. I would not recommend this place!

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.

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.

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.

Overpriced!”
Location, breakfast
I will not go into the details, you can read other reviews, they are quite accurate. This place is really awful for the money you will pay. Strongly suggest not to book in advance and just show there and pay for a room directly. Example: for a bed I paid over Agoda for a place in a room with 3 beds, I could get a room for myself if I just show up there without booking - for less money. Be wise!
