Clusters of small raised bumps appeared on my arms and neck during a two night stay (August 2010) in a shared room on the 7th floor.

I have since sought medical advice and have informed the hostel of the situation.

We have been using Hostels travling the US from Germany. I was in a prty of 4 people. We were all bitten by bed bugs over July 4, holiday. Staff did not care. There were other who had same experience that were not in our group. The room was a shared group room.
