        The service is excellent. The staffs are polite. The room is clean and cosy as described in photos. The location is not so far from the center (Kalaw Market). It is easy to reach to the place. The price is very reasonable for the facilities and service.

        Good budget accommodation”

        Approx 10 min walk from the bus stop, I liked that it was located out of central Kalaw and in a quiet area. I booked a dormitory room and got upgraded to a single with en suite which I was grateful for. WiFi intermittent and slow but standard for Myanmar. Staff were ok, don’t think they could speak much English so contact was very minimal. Breakfast was very good. Clean.

        Only cons were our bathroom didn't drain well so our floor was wet for a long time after showers and the walls are very thin. We could hear our neighbors chatting at normal volumes. Other than that, the place was amazing especially staff! Thank you for a great stay!

        Great price, early check in available with reasonable discount price rates for people arriving at 3am off night buses like us. Friendly staff and laundry service available. Seems to be the best backpacker choice also where we met others in a social environment. Close walk to a golf course and the cave temples.

        Excellent value; wonderful staff”

        Staff were incredibly hospitable and eager to help with anything I needed. When I arrived at 5 am on a night bus, they gave me a blanket and let me curl up on a chair in the lobby while I was waiting for check-in time. Breakfast was very nice, and served on a balcony with a great view. Single room was an excellent value for the price—bed was quite comfortable. Location was convenient, about a 10 minute walk outside of the main town center. And finally, they made a campfire at night, which was a lovely way to relax and meet other travelers. I definitely recommend this hotel!

        Lovely Single Room”

        I loved this place. It was a bit outside of the main center of town, but the town is so small it is only a 10-15 minute walk in or 5 minutes by bike. i thought that my single room was ideal for a solo traveler. It was small, but not claustrophobic and had its own bathroom. There was a window and a comfy single bed. Many extra blankets for the cold nights and great hot water in the shower. The breakfast is pretty good - crepes, toast, fruit, eggs and the staff is shy but super helpful when asked. They were also very accommodating of my super early arrival on the bus.
