      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.

      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.

      - 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!

      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.

      Solo Traveler for a short stay”

      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 price is reasonable in this seaon. But the prices of pickup and ebike renting are ridiculous.
