It should work okay for starter communities on a small droplet with DO. The issue with standard DO is they can't guarantee resources like CPU or memory bandwidth. If you have noisy neighbors then you can wind up with an underpowered VPS.
Really this is a problem all cheap VPS can run into. Some providers can at least guarantee a minimum for a vcore, but DO isn't one of them. You can ask to be transferred under a new hypervisor. Even techs will tell you they have no idea if the new one will be less busy.
