$45 is obscene but similar hotels in Dili cost the same. Imagine a well-run $15 hotel in Vietnam. It has tiny, sterile rooms with something of a window in the bedroom or bathroom, functional bathrooms and good service by English-speaking Chinese staff.

I wouldn't say it is an awesome place to stay. But for what it is and given the situation of the country this is actually a good place to stay. Good breakkie, good food and friendly staff.
