I stayed in the YHA on two different nights one before i tavelled to scotland for 2 weeks then one on my return.
After finally getting to sleep over the noise of the trains i woke up a couple of times during the night with bites but looked at my bed and thought it must have been mozzys, when i went got to scotland i was still getting bit and couldn't figure out what it was since its def too cold for mozzys! The bite were really big and itchy like bed bug bites i searched everything and couldn't see them but i changed my bag and wahed all my clothes just in case.
On my return i spent 3 days travelling from edinburgh to perth and i was shattered by the time i got to oz couldn't wait to get to the YHA and get a good nights sleep.
On this second night i was woken at 12am itchy as hell and finally i got out of bed at 3am with more than 30 bites (thats no exageration). I looked on my bed and found bedbugs crawling on the sheets and on the walls! There were also black marks on the walls (bed bug crap) which means they have obv been there for a while and not been treated properly!! I was pretty pissed off and sleep deprived so went down to complain to the night staff who told me i would have to wait till 8 for the day manager to come in and till then i could stay on a sofa!!! I didn't pay over $30 to sleep on a sofa!
After speaking with the day manager i did get my money back but there was no apology and his attitude stank! Its was as if it was my fault i had a crappy night!
Even though the YHA has got more facilities and is closer to town i would def recommend staying in one of the other backpackers like underground or ozzy inn they may be smaller and not as fancy but its a way better atmosphere and you know you'll get a good nights sleep!
