Upon arrival we learned they had either over-booked or just simply looked over our reservation. Luckily the young lady from Germany, very nice, moved some things around and fit us into the "nook" room (a small room located next to about 10 trash cans with cockroaches alive and dead everywhere. One small window no circulation, no fan , no AC). I actaully was ok with the situation because we managed to get our own room but from there things worsened. The kitchen seemed moderatly clean until opening the fridges and freezers which seemed to have not been cleaned out in at least weeks if not longer. My girlfriend woke up the next morning from several bed bug bugs and the same with me the following day. On our last day EVERYONE was asked to take everything out of there room so the hostel could "spray" for bugs. We had to leave all of our stuff outside piled up from 10 am until 8pm and could not go in our room!!! No compensation was given! In addition there was no spraying or changing of mattresses, we heard it was a monthly routine and the same bed bug ridden beds were put back in our room just to bite us for our last night stay. SPEND THE EXTRA DOLLAR or 2 and stay at a different hostel. The few good things about the place was that the staff were all very nice and helpful as much as they could be.
