Upon arrival, we were greeted by a rather rude receptionist who only seemed to perk up when I handed money over and then she finally cracked a smile. This doesn't really faze me as I find most hostels in Asia have this problem but never mind. We checked into our dorm, staying in beds 10 & 11 for 2 nights and got sorted and acquainted with some others there. I liked the querky feel to the house and it seemed in a good location. It wasn't until we went to bed and I noticed some black beads on my bed, so I went to pick them off and was horrified when they burst into blood spots on my sheets. BED BUGS!! We'd been in Asia for 2 months and have been lucky not to experience this problem, but after speaking with bed number 12, she also found bed bugs on her mattress. We checked out the next morning and I told them what I had experienced. There was no apology or promise to get rid of the bugs, just a bored 'ok' from the receptionist. A shame as the gentleman that runs the breakfast in the morning is so jolly and welcoming but the other staff were so miserable. Wish I'd actually taken note of the amount of complaints for bed bugs on Reggae House's Tripadviser reviews! They weren't lying!!
