The Sahabat guesthouse is located in a central area - certainly in walking distance to the major shopping street and just around the corner is the Hop and Hop off bus which was really great and which we caught every day.
It is clean, bright and modern. A real plus is the central courtyard which is clean, leafy and has two areas for breakfast which is provided - toast and cereal etc. Which was more than adequate. The people that work there on the front desk are really nice though not totally across the tourist options for the area (they didn't know about the hop on and hope off bus - which was literally around the corner, or the number 1 rated restaurant also around the corner).
The room is very basic but very clean and modern. of course, very small but cosy instead of claustrophobic.
The biggest issue is definitely the noise. The walls are so thin that when a couple of girls decided to sit in the computer room beside our room they might as well have been in bed with us chatting because I could literally hear them breathing out there. Also noise from construction/street was amazingly loud. I usually sleep through anything but I had serious trouble, so if you are someone who needs real quiet, find some where else. Perhaps due to this people staying here were a bit older and a bit quieter which was a saving grace.
