Hostel with bedbug

There are bedbugs... and i was bitten to a point that i cannot walk properly, so the trip was ruined... though the staff and breakfast are good, i would not recommend this hostel to anyone, as they still put new people in the room after i complained about the bedbug issue ( and i have my room changed and the new room does have bedbug), and cannot see them doing anything to avoid or amend.

Value hostel

The hostel has good location, reception was helpful, cleanliness good, value for price stay a few night or one night, just the locker wasn't good, i locked the door one day before leave from hostel and i found the door full open when came back to room. shower room alright. services breakfast wasn't bad, it wasn't dutch cold buffet but it doesn't matter. if you would stay in the hostel for location and price, just sleep and use shower for one or two night that would be good choose to this hostel and i believe you can do other things by self service. thanks.
