6/10 Good

Inexpensive place with friendly staff
This is an extremely budget friendly place and you get what you pay for. There's little privacy, you'll pay to use the kitchen, it's pretty dirty, and it's far from the center, but if what you need is a cheap spot, look no further! On the plus side, the staff was friendly, it's not far from the big Buddha overlooking the city and the wifi worked great.
