The hot water is limited if many people use it

And breakfast is not enough for me...(It is not buffet like other guest house)

But service is good staff are very helpful.

Location is also good just beside Manadaly Wall

It is a basic, budget guest house.
Paid $13 for a single room.

The location is good and opposite the guest house you can hire a bike.
The room I had was very small.
Not all staff were equally friendly.

Their service and consistency must be the reason for their good reviews. My room was big & quiet & clean. Shared bathrooms are immaculate. Very hard to get into .... this place is popular, so it is best to book ahead during high season. When I first inquired and looked at a room, the staff warned me that the building next door was under construction and there *may* be noise after 8am and up until 5:00pm. I loved receiving full disclosure before I checked in -- this is a gold standard of service. Turned out that the noise was a non-issue. Great location, easy access to nearby cafes.

I hired a motorbike driver who usually hangs out in front of the hotel (across the street). His name was Llam yho (pronounced l-yam-oo). His english was impeccable and he really knew the history of the sights he took me to.

A fine guest house if you are traveling budget in Burma (which is honestly the best way to go). the hotel is stacked on top of each other, with one seemly endless set of stairs with little cramped half-hallways jutting off from it. We stayed in a pleasant enough room, with the most comfortable beds we had the entire trip. The staff was also really helpful and arranged our transport (we had to leave early to catch our flight back to Yagoon).

The rooms were a surprise. The LP says everything is tiny, but the room I had wasn't.
It's in a good location, close to everything, including the amazing chapati stand.
Breakfast was ok, but very small! Nit enough if you are hungry!
