BED BUGS BED BUGS BED BUGS..... I stayed here for several nights and changed rooms several times because of the bed bugs situation. Every time it got mentioned to staff all they would do is steam clean the carpets and spray the mattresses with bug spray... great. These bugs are the size of a normal human beings small finger nail, they can survive a sledge hammer never mind a splash of bug spray.
One day i was desperate for the toilet.... there are approximately 16 toilets in this hostel and there was only 1... yes 1 that was clean enough to use. The place is very dirty as a whole and not suitable to even sleep for one night. And then we move onto cockroaches..... I hate cockroaches but they kind of came bearable towards the end of my stay because there were that many you just had to get used to it.
Have fun :)
