Great hostel... Only complaint was the hostel "didn't receive" our second nights booking... They offered us free bikes, which sounded awesome, until we saw the bikes. 70% had blown tires. The 3 that we did get blown up and ready to go, 2 of the chains broke within 5 minutes. They also offered us free transportation to a guest house in a nearby village... It was quite cool, but completely unstaffed and in the middle of nowhere. They also refused to give us a discount on the room there.
I love the fact that it's an original old town house. There are two huge dogs which are harmless. I was made to feel very uncomfortable when I join their communal (staff) dinner this one time, while all of us were eating, I was asked if I have paid, to which I replied I have, the staff who asked me this pressed further by asking why has he not received money from me. Obviously there was more than one staff working there and I paid the front desk when he was away.
