Hoan Kiem / Old Quarter budget hotels

I'm traveling with a friend whom i would like to ease into the backpacking culture. Can anyone suggest a good budget hotel in the Hoan Kiem district; with triple sharing rooms with a private bath and A/C?

I stayed at Ocean Stars 2 on Dau Duy Tu Lane, which is about a 5-minute walk from Hoan Kiem Lake. It's well-located, very clean, has en suite bathroom and working AC and the rates include breakfast. They also run reasonable day tours and tours of Sapa and Halong Bay.

I had a double room and it was $15, not sure what the triples are. The owner, Jimmy, is a great guy: very organized and efficient in getting back to you, organizing tours, taxis, whatever you need. I couldn't find the hotel initially (it's in an alley off the main street) and he sent someone to pick me up and bring me free of charge. He'll even tell you if you're dressed inappropriately for the weather, whatever you've planned to do that day before you go out the door ;)
