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!

    The thing that really stands out with this hostel is the Burmese staff, who are consistently incredibly jolly and friendly at all times of day and night. I don't understand how they manage it. I've probably stayed at over 100 hostels and the staff at this one were by far the best. The facilities etc are all great obviously as everyone else has said.

    Deserves the price of the best hostel in Myanmar! The dorms were great, where everyone got their own "pod" with a curtain in the foot end, almost like your own little room. The beds were big and comfortable, and the breakfast was great. They also arranged an awesome boat trip on the lake. But what really made this hostel was the staff! They learned everyone's name by the first day(!), and greated you with a smile whenever you passed. So friendly and so helpful.

    Great hostel with a social atmosphere, comfortable facilities, and awesome staff. The beds were honestly really comfortable and they took privacy into account. From the getgo, even after a night bus, I got a really good experience at Inle Lake. The other guests seem to be in the same vibe, hanging out and casually exploring the beautiful environs of Inle Lake!

    A quality, clean hostel with a very friendly staff. Free snacks, coffee, tea, and cigars are available. Rooftop bar where you can order food if you don’t feel like grabbing something out. Like every hostel I saw in Myanmar, they don’t have a kitchen for you to do your own cooking, so the hostel restaurant is your “in house” option. Sunrise or sunset boat tour of the lake is a great way to get a tour if you don’t have an idea of what you specifically want to see on the lake.
