    The manager is very friendly and uncomplicated. I accidentally went to the wrong Lux Pillow Hostel and this was no problem. I could just stay there. As well is it super easy to meet new people there. And they rent e-bikes, which is a must-have in Bagan.

    - dirty rooms and dirty downstairs bathrooms (outside) - bathroom attached to dorm room was decent - GREAT location, 1 min walk to Main Street in Nyaung U with many restaurants and shops - ebike rental through hostel is more expensive than on Main Street - very NICE staff who are very chatty and friendly with guests - small lockers for valuables on main floor - some beds have plug but not all - very close to temples for sunrise and sunset - can ebike everywhere to all temples and attractions!

    All the backpacker basics. Clean dorms & beds; fairly clean bathroom (at hostel standards). Everything you need right around the corner too, on a busy main road w/ food + drinks (mostly at tourist prices, w/ a few more local eateries scattered about), bike rentals, laundry, tours, & shops, & the hostel can & will gladly arrange for anything you need. It was a bit quiet when I checked in at mid-week, but tons of people came to stay over the weekend (it was the New Year also). Should be easy enough to make friends / find travel companions; moreover, you can always find a friend in Jo (not sure about the spelling), the co-owner. He's super well-travelled, speaks amazing English, & has a ton of stories from his own travels & about living in Myanmar. If you need advice, directions, places to go to, insight into local culture, history, Buddhism, or the Myanmar way of life in general - he's your guy.

    The hostel is small but very nice. Wide common space. You can fill your water bottle and use the kitchen for free. There is an outdoor hot water shower and an indoor cold one, which are not convenient in late night or early morning in winter (~18 C outside).

    We rented an ebike from the hostel and had a flat tire on the way cruising around Bagan. A quick call at the hostel was enough that they sent somebody to pick us up within 15 minutes and we didn't even have to pay for the flat tire.

    I went there for a short recharge. Price : Affordable Location: Quite good, about 10minute away from the temple(E-Bike) Cleanliness: Clean, it was actually a room in bungalow. Staff: Very Helpful, i called the staff in early morning(5-6am) disrupted his sleep and he was amazing cool with it. I originally submitted a request through agoda that i want early check in, but the staff said he never received it. Facilities: The room . kitchen was alright. Two toilet i never use the toilet in girl room, i used the one on the lower floor.Only problem was the toilet, it was the toilet in 70's-80's , you can see through the small flower hole. just a little no privacy haha.

    The owner of the hostel was really nice and helpful, but there are better value places. The rooms were clean and beds were comfy, but the shower and the bathroom attached to the room seemed to be used by most other guests, so there were quite a lot of people coming in and out of the room. They had some toast and coffee for breakfast.

    Dear Eleonora, Thank you for reviewing Lux Pillow Hostel. Your reviews helps for qualtiy service. Regarding the price value , we have different dorms. Female dorms highest price as it is ensuite.

    the worst hostel that I've ever stayed ”
    booked a female dorm but it turned out to be a mixed (in fact, theres no female dorm !!!,but they charged 2 more $ and declaimed that their staff made a mistake and without any intention to fix it ) every floor has only one bathroom and the shower in second floor without power like dripping, and what's worse , the bathroom is inside a dormitory but everyone who lives in the second floor use it , pretty noise at night. and one more thing , it seemed that they didnt have enough mattress , the bed that I lived was a bare sponge with a narrow bed sheet on(can't even cover the mattress) !!!

    " The worst guest we ever had " Booking is done by " Yourself " and is the person You did the mistake. All the guest in the hostel have complained about " You ". Your voice , Your phone calls, Your language are mass loud and is disturbing each and every guest sleep. The neighbour complain to us and the way you are shouting/speaking deserve a police sentence. Few guest Requested to check you out as they cannot tolerate it. We guarantee our mattress and beds are much comfortable and better than you have mentioned. We found out our mattress are destoryed by you and stained !!!! The bed sheet is spoiled* and not able to use after your check-out. Your booking clearly stated as " SHARED BATHROOM " !!!!! We have 2 toilet for 2 floor . All the guest staying at the hostel can use both toilets as it is clearly stated as " SHARED ". We not happy about your manner !!!, behaviour !!! and the stay !!!. we do not accept this review as truly stated.

    옛날 감성의...부족함이 많지만 매력도 많은 곳”
    시설은 별로고 화장실이나 샤워실도 모자란다. 매니저(주인) 한 명을 제외하면 다른 친구들은 영어가 되지도 않는다. 아무리 바간에서 최저가 호스텔중 하나라지만 이런 열악한 환경에도 사람들은 바글거린다. 분명 이유가 있다. 오래되고 낡았다고 모두 아날로그 감성은 아니다. 근데 이곳은 분명 옛날 느낌 가득한...잠자는 숙소라기 보다 게스트들의 휴식처 같은 느낌이 강하다. 젊은 남자 주인은 그 자신이 미얀마 구석구석을 여행다녔으며 세계 여러곳을 여행다닌 여행자다. 이건 중요한 포인트다. 미얀마 여행에 대한 여행자 입장에서의 다양한 정보와 세계 여행을 다녀본 시각으로 미얀마 문화를 설명 들을 수 있다는건 아주 큰 장점이다. 나는 불교 문화에 관심이 좀 많아서 미얀마 여행을 다니며 궁금했던 불교 문화(티벳이나 동남아 국가와의 미묘한 차이들)에 대해 이것저것 물어봤었다. 참고로 이 친구 영어가 네이티브 수준이다. 불편한 곳이다. 하지만 분명 매력이 넘치는 곳이기도 하다. 내공이 탄탄한 여행자라면 한 번 '도전' 해보는 것도 나쁘지 않을듯 하다.
