    I stay in their dormitory room with my little son, the room is clean, their bathroom also. Even their bathroom kind of far because in the first floor, but it doesn't matter, the staff is warmly, they Can't speak English well but their nice to us, they give my son a free breakfast too.

    Just avoid if possible”

    The hotel by itself is well located, the breakfast is decent and the breakfast lady is very nice. However: we had lots of weird moments in this place. The worst was: After showering and going back into the room, one of the employees just went into the room when it was empty because he said the AC made too much noise (it's true that it was louder than usual). While I tried to tell him that I would like to change, still in underwear because I got out of the shower, he just continued to do something with the AC until he finally left. This is completely unacceptable. One night, the owner got so drunk that he fell asleep in the middle of the lobby and was snoring extremely loud, we even heard it in the rooms. I mean, it's not a huge problem, but still strange. Other things were for example other people coming into our room while we were sleeping or the wall sockets not being isolated or grounded. I would get constant electric shocks from my charging devices if touching metal. Overall, it was a very bad experience. There are other places for the same price close which I'm sure are better. Or just pay 2 or 3€ extra for a nice place.

    A+ staff”

    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).

    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.

    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) !!!
