Property Description

VOTED MYANMAR'S BEST HOSTEL 2019 BY HOSTELWORLD. Thank you for all the love and support. You are the best singers for Song of Travel.
Our family of staff is so excited to welcome you to our home away from home! 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 guidebooks 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 center 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! View House Rules

    One of my best hostel ever! People from all around the world. Staff really nice, kind and helpful. The hostel was chill and quiet but with a lot of events and activities. The free bike are a plus. Honestly, I recommend this local hostel to all travelers that want to live a great adventure in Nyaungshwe (Inle lake). Thanks again to the staff!

    Most memorable stay in Myanmar. The dorm is clean and have a lot of privacy (capsule style). There's free bicycle to use so location isn't important. The rooftop bar was fabulous with delicious food and i had my breakfast (free), lunch and dinner with sunrise, sunset and moon rise. The staff is friendly and always willing to help. I really feel like I'm at home. I'm already considering going back next year. Remember to try the hotpot buffet nearby. It's cheap and nice. Highly recommended.

    The best possible stay anyone could ever ask for. This isn't a hostel but a 5* home! Fiona the owner and GM has taken upon herself to literally adopt the team into her life and it pays off. By far the hostel's greatest facilities are the team which strive to deliver outstanding service which I have never witnessed having stayed and worked in 5*+ hotels. Special thanks goes to Amy, Zeya, Toe Toe and Jack for making my short stay the most memorable in Burma. Only regret is not staying longer.

    This hostel offers EVERYTHING a traveling nomad could possibly want and there is absolutely NOTHING to improve or criticize. If you come to Inle Lake (which you really should), stay in song of travel.

    Song of Travel made us feel right at home from the moment we arrived at 6am. We had access to great showers, a bed, breakfast and a diverse list of activities. We chose the full day boat tour thanks to the advice fo the AMAZING staff who work so hard, and are so kind and friendly. This hostel is on the quieter side but you are actually able to meet people from around the world & have good conversations instead of just party. They really take the community into account and share that with you!

    This is one of the best Hostels I have ever stayed in. Staff is super friendly and always tries to take care that YOU got the best Inle Lake experience. Free Coffee and snacks is just amazing. Breakfast is good too. I got vegan customized breakfast. Lots of Avocadotoast and eggless pancake. If I would have been asked to describe Song Of Travel Hostel in one word word: "outstanding".

    The staff was incredible, so helpful and friendly, making for a great family vibe. Not many people staying here, but it was a great place to stay. It is pretty far from everything else though.
