60MR a night for a double with aircon (one of the cheapest we've found).
Wifi is good but only in the shared areas, unreliable from the rooms.
Breakfast is only toast and coffee/tea
The only negative I found here is that the reception is often unmanned and you need to be buzzed in to gain entry to the backpackers which has left us standing outside at night for 5-10mins waiting for someone. Would be ok if you have a phone as theres numbers of people to ring if the doors closed but we didn't.
Staff are friendly and helpful.
Showers are in the toilets which was a first for me, very cramped but still a reasonable hot shower.
