Rat infestation is the latest problem there. Spugsy may be able to enlighten you. Cheap and cheerful is the general view. Much better location than International City but equally swarming with bachelors.

What's your budget for housing?

Disco Gardens is "cheap and cheerful" and it's well on its way to being converted into upscale labour housing.

I'd look into TECOM or Al Barsha around the Mall of Emirates for cheap apartments. It's not so appealing on the outside (Disco Gardens despite its cheapness has a bright and shiny patina), but there's loads of shops and restaurants and bars in the walkable vicinity and two beds can now be had for as low as 60K.

Disco Gardens does have a kebab shop and is a short taxi ride from the best bar in Dubai which will take you back to all that was great about working mens clubs in the 70's, with drunken Koreans thrown in.

The location is good but the rats would scare me.

They started boxing and the new manager just laughed and let them get on with it.

Priceless. been going in since 2001 so i'm just a newcomer to the Club.

I think all Dubai tourists should do a night in the Club after the 5* hotels.

Do a search on here, there's loads of threads.

It's not bad, cheap and if you go down to streets 11 / 12 they are pretty empty and its ncie and quiet.

I've never seen a rat there ever.
