I intended to stay at this hostel for 3 days but left after 1 night because I was ANNIHILATED by BED BUGS. I was covered (and still am) in literally hundreds of bites from my face to my feet. The owner was very nice about it but he claims that he has never had an issue in that room before… I find that hard to believe. After they feasted on my flesh all night, I saw at least 5 of the bugs with my own eyes the next day. They seem to be infesting the wooden bunks very severely. My friends and I had to take all of our belongings to a nearby laundromat to sterilize them and the owner of the laundromat saw my skin and knew straight away that I had been staying at the hostel. That is a very bad sign. The hostel is very spacious, has great bathrooms and nice staff but the bed bug problem negates it all. BE WARNED.
I would also like to point out that my friend left a negative review about the bed bugs on hostelworld.com where we booked the room, and the review was deleted within minutes. She called hostelworld to find out what had happened and was told that the owner of the hostel saw the review, called them and said the problem had been taken care of. THIS IS A LIE. He told me he had not had an issue with bedbugs in his hostel. Well after this incident I checked other sources and found plenty of reviewers saying otherwise. SHADY and UNPROFESSIONAL!
