We took local transport from Medan to reach BL. Obiwan arranged the pickup in BL, from the dropoff point in BL, up to the narrow walkpath that leads to the hostel. Transport consisted of 2 becaks. To our surprise and disappointment, we were charged 30k at arrival, 15k for each be…

Response from Obiwan:
Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback to us Miriam. We have taken most of your points into consideration so I would like to note a few things to your critic points: I agree that my staff should have informed you about the price for the bechaks (1 euro per bechak), but as he forgot this I did actually offer to pay for your rides when you were dropped off which you refused to accept. We do offer a free softdrink during our "welcome" talk but as you chose to have a beer the drink wasn't free. For most accommodations in Bukit Lawang it is standard for the guest to ask for fresh towels, new sheets or cleaning of the room. Had you asked us we would have been happy to change sheets / towels and clean the room. We will make it more clear to our guests in the future that they can just ask the staff if they need anything. We are in the process of changing the mattresses in the room and expect the new ones to arrive next week, and also hopefully the construction of our new building will be done in a months time. We have also included some extra information on our airbnb page re: our Saturday night party and breakfast not being included in the price so I hope there will be less confusion for our future guests. Thanks you for pointing these items out to me. I hope you still enjoyed Bukit Lawang and your stay with us as we really enjoyed having you and your family as our guests. All the best to you and your family. Obiwan
