Last budget bed before the ruins
Main road, Wet Kyi Inn
This is pretty much the last budget bet for a long way -- well until New Bagan actually -- though the guesthouse next door was being renovated when we visited in mid-2013, so it should soon be second to last.
Upon our visit, Winner had two main styles of rooms: old and new. There were even newer rooms however still being built out back. The old ones, especially the bathrooms, are pretty dire and are not the best value when compared to those closer to Nyaung U. The new ones are better, especially in the bathroom department and we'd opt for those. It does have a backpacker vibe to it, with a small cafe out front, but we thought the slightly cheaper places, closer to town, were a better deal.
