I stayed here 1 night beginning of June 2013 in a dorm style room. When I woke up in the morning and turned on the lights, there were bed bugs all over my bed and on the walls. I had to look up what those bugs were because I'd never encountered them before. They were bed bugs! Considering the number of bugs that were clearly visible (the linens were white) it was probably quite an infestation. Needless to say I was completely disgusted, grossed out, not to mention having to deal with the aftermath of being bitten numerous times =(
Even though this hostel was very conveniently located and easy to find, and the staff was friendly, I would never ever stay there again.
