            The best place to stay in Hsipaw ”

            Since they have both a hotel and a guest house, I expected the guest house to be average on facilities, but I was in for a pleasant shock. Right from picking up from Hsipaw train station to taking care of luggage while I was away for a trek, the facilities are best in class. As we reached the guest house, everyone was warmly welcomed and offered a welcome drink - I really felt pampered. The rooms and beds were very comfortable and the bathrooms were clean with all required toiletries. The staff was just amazing and spoke great English - not so common in Myanmar. They even allowed to take a shower when we returned from the trek. And of course free tea, coffee, and cookies. Anything that I required - using the refrigerator, booking bus ticket - the staff was ready to help with a smile. This was by far the best place I stayed during my month long stay in Myanmar. Would love to come back some day.

            Nice place, with long history of hospitality. Very friendly staff. Rooms are quite old, but you can feel your self like in old wood house. I was lucky, in my 4 beds room I was alone :) Breackfast with good choice. I found only one minus - food in main restaurant, when I have order from menu - food was not so tasty for my opinion, after I went to other local restaurants - there was much better!

            This seems to be the go-to place for backpackers looking to do some trecking in Hsipaw. The atmosphere is nice and friendly. The staff is helpful and there is a travel agency which can arrange all the trecking you want. Awesome breakfast with lots of choices. Recommended.

            Buffet breakfast was amazing and especially filling porridge before a hike. Free pack storage during hiking is really nice. Rooms were a bit cold but blankets were warm. Comfortable outdoor seating area upstairs on sunny deck - good for chatting with other guests. They have boot washing facilities - great for after a muddy hike. Staff are super welcoming, friendly, helpful and can speak English. Same day laundry service. Free tea, coffee and water station is a bonus. Decent book exchange including at sister property next door. Nice and clean with lots of toilets and showers. You need to run the hot water in the upstairs shower for about 4-5 minutes before it gets hot. Helpful onsite agency to book hiking tours.

            Stayed 2 nights in December 2018

            Really nice stay!!”

            Clean rooms, best breakfast in Myanmar! A really big choice of good food for breakfast! Not so nice is the meaning of the staff that the change which you'll get back is so small that it is nothing worth for us

            +hot shower with good water pressure +no drains/sewage smell, unlike most places I've stayed in Myanmar +buffet breakfast with lots of options -my dorm was next to the balcony and smelt quite strongly of smoke when people were smoking outside -they insisted on using a dodgy exchange rate if you didn't pay in USD, so I paid about 4000kyat more than I should have done. Not a huge amount but it's not nice to feel like you're being scammed
