Property Description

Our family of staff is so excited to welcome you to our home away from home, and to the first and best hostel in Inle Lake, Myanmar! We work hard to make everyone feel comfortable at Song of Travel, offering free coffee, tea, and snacks all day every day! If you are arriving in Nyaung Shwe early in the morning after a night bus, no need to worry, we have a free room with beds where you can have a nap, take a shower, and grab a cup of coffee or tea in order to feel ready to take on the day! Each morning enjoy our complimentary, daily changing breakfasts which are inspired by guests, and who are always
welcome to suggest new items for our menu!

Not quite sure what to do while you’re here? Our local staff are all extremely enthusiastic to provide suggestions for activities in Nyaung Shwe and the surrounding areas including three completely unique boat trips on the lake that are only offered through this hostel. We also have guide books specific to this area written by previous volunteers who were able to really explore and write down their firsthand experiences for you to learn from. While the hostel is located in a totally authentic residential part of town, it is a bit of a walk into the city centre but this is made easy with the free bike rentals!

Grab a bike and cycle around town, getting lost on the pothole filled roads and checking out how the locals live around here. It definitely adds to the experience being a bit out of the main area, and seeing the kids playing outside, the monks walking by each morning, and the local people going about their day to day lives. We host a variety of activities each day from wine tasting at Red Mountain Estate Winery (a short 20 minute bike ride away) to movie night, to playing Chinlon together, there is something for everyone! At the end of the day head up to the rooftop bar to grab a tasty cocktail and enjoy the sunset. We can’t wait to meet you!

    Quite simply the best hostel I have stayed in, ever. Including hostels in the rest of Asia, Europe and South America. From the big items like the pod beds to the smaller ones like 3-ply toilet paper. All sorts of free stuff including daily home cooked snacks and there are events organised daily as well. But the staff are what make it - the friendliest/funniest I've come across. The only bad thing about this hostel is that all other hostels I stay at now won't come close.

    Best hostel I've stayed in. Amazing and kind staff. Clean, privacy for the beds. Great and fun atmosphere even with only a few people during low season. Highly recommended

    One of the best I've ever stayed in. Spotlessly clean, excellent breakfasts, free bike rental, games but it's the staff that make it. Some of the friendliest hosts I've ever encountered, nothing was ever too much trouble and they'd go out of their way to accommodate any request (with a smile too!) Just wish I had longer to stay! Thank you to everyone, hopefully I'll see you again. 10/10. Conall

    I absolutely loved the staff! Ahmeee was fantastic and she will take care of you like no one else. Overall, the location was average and the athmosphere was nonexistent. But overall it was a good hostel
