location, cheap, acceptable
If you are on tight budget with no expecations then you can stay here. But for a traveller with higher standards, forget this place.

Ok for backpackers
So So only
As for backpackers with no expectation and just need to rest, should be ok. Toilet cleanliness was so so only. Don't expect much with this price if you stay at SG.
