Love this place. It's so cheap, beds are comfy, free basic breakfast each day. Cheap beers. Friendly staff. Located near the party area but not so close that you can't sleep. Small dorms. Good wifi. What more could you want for $5.50

The location was perfect...right next to the main strip in district 1...it is a bit further away from the main museums which seemed to be around district 3 but it is in walking distance. Excellent free breakfast provided, and when we arrived at 5aam off our night bus they gave us a room at no extra charge.
