Staff is really nice and willing to help. Min (I guess he is the manager) speaks good English and knows a lot about the area and helps with travel issues. Otherwise we agree with the other reviews (thin walls, loud prayers and singing from the monastery).

All in liked this place. Staff were helpful and suggested a great bike tour, complete with map. Set up was generally good with a nice garden/restaurant area to chill in and a nice reception area too. Unfortunately the walls between rooms are paper thin so the 'Silent time after 10' notices aren't to stop rowdy guests but to stop anybody... More

I really enjoyed my four nights' stay at May Guesthouse. The owner and staff are wonderful, so helpful and kind; the breakfasts are great (generous portions of toast and eggs, or pancakes, plus fruit and tea or coffee with either choice), and the large rooms are clean and cosy. Crucially though, the garden is a true oasis. I really enjoyed... More

Cheesy title I know :P It is conveniently located. Got on a tuc tuc, rode for 5 minutes, paid 1000MMK each (probably overpriced) and arrived at May. It is a well-run establishment with professional staff. I think folks that think it's overpriced are perhaps comparing it to other places in South East Asia but when it comes to Myanmar and... More

Very helpful staff (although not so warmly like in other places). Breakfast is ok and served in the beautiful hostel garden. Prices for service and room reasonable for touristic Nyaungshwe. A bit noisy. Seems to be very professional.

It is very noisy here. You can hear all the traffic passing by and the walls are so thin you can hear your neighbours talk...going to the toilet and so on. Don't bring an alarm clock...the rooster will wake you up. Around 4 pm. The garden is lovely...a nice place to relax. Staff is friendly. The prices are way to... More

The hotel rooms are pretty basic: our room hosted two beds and a cloth hanger plus additional space for the luggage and had an ensuite bathroom. Everything was reasonably clean and our room got cleaned and the beds were made every day, which is an excellent service for a guesthouse. The breakfast was standard: eggs and toast with butter and... More

Prebooked via email & my booking was honoured upon check in. I had a small single room with two single beds, wet room but shower between the toilet and basin. Fan on table between beds. No wardrobe just rack with hangers. Good shower with good hot water. Power point in bathroom, small bath towel (found that strange), soap, toilet paper... More
