Possible bed bugs?
I booked in for a few hours before my flight the next morning and woke up with 4 bites at the back of one of my ankles. I’ve had something similar happen in a hostel in Europe once (concentrated bites in one area) only to find out my bed had bed bugs which leads me to believe this was the case here. I didn’t check the bed for certainty as the girls in my room were sleeping and I arrived very late and had to leave quite early but I’d recommend the staff get up to room 222 specifically bed 4 to have a look. Our window was not open so I’m certain they weren’t mosquito bites.
