    A decent backpaker option.

    by

    Probably because of it's good write up in the Lonely Planet guidebook, this place is very popular amongst backpackers, and deservedly so. When a small group of us were deposited at the quay from the Bagan boat, virtually everyone seemed to be heading there and, indeed, a small but friendly race developed between the trishaw drivers taking us.

    On arrival, the place was almost full, and they were only able to offer me a fan single with shared facilities. This wasn't a problem. I'm not a fan orf air-con (it gives me a bad throat) and the shared toilets and shower room were kept spotless. The room was small and basic but clean and perfectly adequate. Another advantage of the fan room is that when one of the frequent power cuts kicks in, the fans keep running whilst the air-con is switched off. At 3 USD per night, it wasn't hard on the wallet either.

    There is a pleasant communal seating area on the ground floor with a few seats outside and a shady roof garden which is relaxing to sit in with a beer in the evening.

    The staff are friendly and knowledgeable about transportation, things to do etc., and it is a good place to hook up with other travellers if you want to share taxis etc.

    If you know you're going to be here, I would book in advance, especially if there are a group of you.

    Unique Quality: Nothing unique, really, but a good budget option.

    Directions: Just follow the address really. The grid system of the street plan and the reasonably good (for Myanmar) street signs make it easy to find.
