ll have) over 125 bites.
So we looked up the facts on these bugs and searched the mattress a couple times until we did find a disgusting cluster of them. Needless to say we were completely traumatized and immediately packed our luggage and pulled them outside. But not before finding one in one of our bags on our clothes and on my body.
We called on management, who seemed not to care at all and also swore at us for waking him. I showed him my bites and he just kept mumbling profanities. It was until the next night at 10:30 pm did they exterminate. We were not offered another room and slept on lobby benches as we didn't have a choice.
The next day of our supposed vacation, we spent the entire day washing and drying our clothing to rid of the bugs, on no sleep at all, sore bodies, and with waiting time in between as it was the hostel's priority to wash their linens. While we potentially hosted adult bed bugs and eggs.
Not only are we both physically scarred by this, but mentally I don't know when, or if, we will ever shake our paranoia. I have not stopped showering in scolding hot water, drying my clothes unnecessarily, ironing, and washing my sheets daily.
And my bites are never ending.
Avoid this place, not matter your budget. Don't travel if you can't afford better than this.
