First night, first bedbugs when I was looking for a relaxing week in Malta to escape the cold from Northern Europe in mid-November. I changed the room; there was some relief for some time, but my clothes were obviously still contaminated with these very unpleasant parasites. However, the staff denied and ignored the facts to me with the excuse of having only mosquito bits.
When I complained to the owner next morning, and I asked for washing my clothes free of charge, she threatened to throw me out by the police while I expressed my intention to write a negative review on this hostel problem of bedbugs. I was discredited by the owner of having a bedbug phobia, but finally I got my clothes (shirt and underwear) washed. Thus, I kept calm under pressure.
I thought that I got rid of the bedbugs, because parts of my clothes were washes. However, they reappeared around my neck (I have taken photos of the bits), and I could only get rid of them in washing my clothes, myself and my suitcase at home. I had nervous nights until being sure that I did not bring them into my own bed at home from Boho hostel.
It was a very annoying ignorant deterioration of my short holidays in this beautiful country of Malta! Next time to be avoided.
