Although a very comfortable riad/hostel with a nice included breakfast, the main manager made our stay very un-enjoyable. Being a local we assumed that we could rely on the information he provided but found that the details he gave were inaccurate & very mis-leading.
We went on a walking tour with his "cousin" which was not informative & ended up paying more than what was quoted by the manager. A night spent in the desert was troublesome too where again the price/cost differed from the original quote & 10hrs+ on a mini-van with NO air-conditioning was not mentioned. When simple questions were asked about the tour (not only by ourselves but another group of travellers) regarding water & things to bring, he became annoyed & gave unclear answers.
Finally, I really didn't appreciate how uncomfortable he made us feel & especially my girlfriend when on our last day, he persistently ask her to write a positive review on the hostel for the website in which she booked. This was a highly unprofessional & unethical manner in which to conduct a business.
Do your research on the tours, make sure you get clear & precise answers & even then, don't rely on its accuracy...
