"Cheap, but still don't recommend it" East Timor Backpackers Tip by DSwede

East Timor Backpackers, Dili: 48 reviews and 0 photos

The rooms are rather crowded. The bunk rooms have up to 9 beds in them, and only two electrical outlets to share.

The beds are foam matrices set on metal frames. I could feel the metal frame on my hip and shoulder easily.

The bathrooms are shared and in need of a good cleaning. You will need to bring your own towels and toiletries.

The price is $12/night and breakfast is not even included.

This guesthouse used to the be cheapest and best in town. However under new management, it may have slipped a bit. I would not recommend this place to anyone unless saving a couple dollars is of paramount importance.

Unique Qualities: Honestly, I can't think of a "unique" quality.

Best part of Backpackers is that they offer the cheapest laundry rates in town. $2 per load. Extra cost for drying.
