Please stay away from Room 111. My husband and I stayed there one night, and when we woke up the next morning, he mentioned that he had felt something biting him in the stomach at night. We never gave it much thought. One of the women also sleeping in the same room (we stayed in a 6-bed dormitory room on the first floor) said the next morning that she had been bitten all over by "mosquitoes". Little did we know that it would turn out to be our worst nightmare... BEDBUGS. We didn't realize it until 3-4 days later, when I found I had been bitten over 50 times. We're now worried we brought then back home in our luggage. PLEASE don't stay here. If you do, consider yourself forewarned and bag all your sleeping clothes in an airtight ziploc bag when you leave, lest you carry them home with you like we did. Bedbugs are very, very difficult insects to get rid of. The hostel should hire an exterminator immediately and let customers know what's going on. The service was actually great and the people running the place were very nice, so the reason for our very low scores are the bedbugs....
