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

    The staff made the whole experience so personal. Everyone knew my name the second I checked in. Despite looking like a massive boombox, it is a very quiet and chilled out hostel. It's not a party hostel like some would expect. Great night's sleep and fantastic atmosphere and crowd if you want to socialise. It deserves every award it is given.

    Had an unbelievable stay. No surprise they’ve won Hostel of the Year. The staff/volunteers are very friendly and helpful in all situations and also very funny. Layout of the rooftop area is perfect, it’s set up to make friends easily, but also enough space to just chill and enjoy the great sunset view. They offer workout equipment, free water, and a filling high quality breakfast. Check out their menu as well, food was as tasty as the restaurants in town, if not better. Nice book exchange too!

    Probably the best hostel I’ve ever stayed in (and I’ve stayed in a lot of them). Everything about the place is so well thought out, the staff are ridiculously nice, the rooftop bar is fantastic and the free breakfast is amazing. Great showers, everything is spotless and the dorms all have curtains + free bike rental. They even buy in popular books to ensure their free book swap always has a great selection - next level stuff. No wonder this is ‘Myanmar’s best hostel’.

    Staff is amazing, can’t overstate that. They are really the best. The hostel is a little away from the center, but after you get to the hostel you can use the bikes to get everywhere quickly. Also good to have the bike to tour around the area, and the staff will tell you best places to go. Both the downstairs area and rooftop are great for meeting people. The dorms have a lot of people, but the cubby beds are very private, have lamps and chargers, and very comfy. Great place, thanks again!

    Ahmee is the friendliest hostel worker I’ve ever met! Great facilities and nice rooftop bar. I think some more hostel organised activities would help improve atmosphere.
