This review is regarding staying in the 4 person dorm. Although my boyfriend suffered little to no bites I was covered in them! Upon further investigation found a few under my mattress/on the bed frame. When we tried to explain the situation they seemed to think we were referring to other types of bugs and informed us if we left the door one with a light on this happen (which wasn't the case at all). So I doubt this problem is being addressed. I can handle Mosquitos and other insects, but not Bedbugs!
The Positives: Cheap, great breakfast included, good communal kitchen, close to town but on a quiet side street.
Other Negatives: Hot water didn't work so communal shower is freezing (we asked a few times, but other than being told it should work nothing was done), some of the dorm beds are missing the supporting slats so choose your beds wisely, thin walls, 4 bed dorm had an opened area which led right down to the kitchen area so you can hear everything going on. Also the 4 bed dorm was tiny, it was fine for 2 of us but would hate to be in it when it was full.
