After 3 backpacking trips, living in some bad places, and now I finally got bedbugs in my bed in a Backpacker "Resort". Second night i slept in the lounge area because I saw the bugs and found the eggs. The whole mattres was infested. Fine, No money back, no apology, they did not even go an look at the room first First they did not want to send our clothes to the cleaners. But after much complaining they told they can send everything that fits in one plastic bag!! for the both of us !?There is no point in washing just a part of the clothes. After I told the other people in the room about the bugs they cleaned the room and put new people in it. We got another room and went through the mattresses and found more, We complained and no money back. We just got another room in the other house with new mattresses. That was the last night at that place, Me and the other backpackers left the next day. Also i dont know if it was a bad weekend but the whole hostel just had a weird wibe about it, not really like a social hostel on other places.
Sure it was nice and clean and good price. But that really did not help.
And just to point out, damn 20 bedbug bites itches a lot !!
Thanks to the other backpackers that helped me with this problem
