The hostel appeared clean etc when we checked in. The service was not very helpful upon checkin. We actually checked out after the first night as my husband woke up with huge bites all over his back and neck. They appeared to be bed bug bites.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?
The hostel appeared clean etc when we checked in. The service was not very helpful upon checkin. We actually checked out after the first night as my husband woke up with huge bites all over his back and neck. They appeared to be bed bug bites. The man at the counter insisted that there were no bed bugs but we didn't want to risk another night. So we checked out. Everything appeared clean so we were a little surprised. We came from a family home prior to this stay and know that he couldn't have picked anything up from there. The man refunded two nights stay as we had three booked without hesitation so that was kind of him. It would've been nice to receive great service from the beginning.
