      Absolutely terrible...”

      Almost everyone arrives in Bagan at 4 or 5 am but the owner will not allow early check in. He is rude and money obsessed. The rooms are dirty and the bathroom is never cleaned. The Wi-Fi almost never worked!!! Do not rent an electric scooter from here, you can find one for half the price if you look outside on the same street!

      Had a good stay but the owner is a quite greedy person. Paid 3.000 kyat for an early check in. Next day left at 19 but had to pay the full price for the night instead of 3.000 kyat for late check out

      Great stay, meet new friends”

      This place was located right at the proper place accessible to all pagodas and near by restaurants..more Importantly the staff is very friendly and the owner named kyaw is an amazing friendly host who made you comfortable and fulfilled few on spot demands. The hostel is located right next to atm and banks and currency exchange was right opposite to the hostel. Over all the stay was definitely satisfying. Just they have to care a little more about cleanliness.

      The worse hostel”

      I travel in Asia since half year ago and this was the worse hostel in which I've been. I the staff is really unfriendly, they charge you for early check in, they charge you if you want to let your backpack after check out, even if you want to charge your phone. The bathroom is really dirty and the breakfast very poor. Don't waste your money.

      Feeling the bad energies from the owner from the moment yu get to the guesthouse. He clearly wants to take as much money from your pocket as possible. 1000 kyats for charging your phone after check out. 1000 kyats for leaving your backpack after check out. And toilets are not clean. Every guest stays for one night and end up leaving the place.

      Very very basic, but very cheap too so I can’t reallycomplain much. The owner was very nice and helped with questions, but the boy helping when he was not around wasn’t very good, almost didn’t understand english, very difficult to comunicate with him. One bathroom in the room for 12 people. Very basic facilities. No good communal space. Only can recommend if you are going to stay for a night and you want to save some kyats.

      Above average”

      The owner was a nice and friendly person with a smile. For a low price you get a shared room with a functioning bathroom. However, renting an e-Bike is expensive. Laundry is very expensive. Breakfast (£1 extra) is raw bread, raw lettuce/ tomato/ cucumber and packets of instant coffee - but you can buy a large, fully cooked meal in any place nearby for £0.50.

      An extremely high price with awful service ”

      I stayed in lux pillow because it is one of the only vacancies in bagan on New Year's Eve. The price was us$40 per night for only a bunk bed in a dormitory room, which is hard to believe. The room has no AC, and the shower is not working well. The smell of the blanket and the pillow shows they haven't been changed for at least a month. The electricity and internet connection is not stable. Too much to complain. Anyway, if you have other choices, NEVER EVER chose lux pillow.

      Terrible service”

      I take the night bus and arrived around 1:00 am. I have noticed in advance, and the manager said just nock the door when I arrived. But, the staff all sleep very very deeply and no answer no matter nock, shouting or phone. When I faintly enter in by push the door in force and there are two staff sleep in the garden! I wake them up to check in, and they ask to keep my passport at the desk till morning when their manager came. I refused to keep at the desk without lock, but they cannot speak English. Finally they don't force me to keep my passport. They just pick my luggage and send me to the room angrily. I ask for the breakfast time, they answered NO. The plug in the dorm room is not much (only six plug for 14 people). The bathroom is dirty and toilet has a little blocked. So I changed the other hotel in the next morning. It is really a terrible experience for hotel I have ever been in Myanmar.

      If you are in budget, as we are, you should stay here. Dormitory simple, but clean. Owner speak great english, provide useful information and can arrange e-bike rental, bus ticket or laundry for reasonable prices. Wifi was weak in the dormitory, but good in hall by the reception. Unfortunately there is no breakfast, but against the hostel there is a big restaurant with meals from 1000mkk. The worst thing were mosquitos in dorm, but when you are in budget... ;-)

      decent with a few cons”

      The fan room is really big and three is only one particularly weak fan mounted to the ceiling on one side of the room. I usually prefer fan rooms because air conditioning makes my nose run, but I couldn't feel the fan at all and was too hot to sleep. I switched to an air con room for $2 more, but for the difference I wish I had stayed at another place that I read with better breakfast. The breakfast provided is only toast and jam. The laundry service is quite over-priced.

      Chilled out place, good beds. Prefer this location to New Bagan, this is a more authentic place. Next to lots of local places to eat. Only suggestion for improvement was that the young guys in charge sometimes didn't notice when things needed doing, e.g. replacing water or breakfast, but they are learning! free rum in the evening.

      The stay is good. Bed was big. But the management had to work on cleanliness more. But it was in main market.
