I really loved this hostel. Great people, great location, great vibe.. BUT, I cut my stay short because there were bed bugs in my private room. I chatted with people staying in the dorm and they had no problem, so maybe this issue is limited to the one room. I know bedbugs can happen anywhere and it's not a reflection on the cleanliness of the hostel, but still, it's disgusting!
My advice--check the bedding carefully before you stay. If you have any doubts (spots on sheets, strange bites after your first night) ask to be moved to a different room. Definitely don't set luggage on the bed, you don't want to carry the bugs with you!
