First off. This isn't a bad hotel. It is, as the name suggests, budget. If you can imagine something not too dissimilar from one of those Japanese sleeping pods then you're not far away.
It is clean, albeit a bit sterile, and very basic. The beds are very hard but again clean. The staff are friendly enough.
So why the low rating. I guess because I have stayed at budget hotels before and you can get a lot more for your buck. No wifi in the rooms which is a shame. The shower is more like a cupboard in the wall.
If anything, while you can't really complain about the hotel, it feels more like a hospital than a hotel. But if you are after a cheap place for a night then this is your place... 2 nights might be pushing it.
