When we arrived at the Bowerey Whitehouse, we enquired if there had been any recent bed bug activity. The girl at reception said no. We checked the bed in room 203 and could not find evidence of bed bugs. We left our luggage and went out for the evening. When we returned around 2 am, we saw one bug on our bed. We collected the bug and took it reception. The guy working at that time said it "may not be a bed bug", but he suggested moving us to a room on the fourth floor. We asked hi
m to contact other nearby hotels to see if we could move hotels rather, but everything was booked up. So we went to room 406. We slept, but around 4 am, we awoke, itchty, and when we turned on the light there were 20-30 bugs crawling all over the bed. My wrists, ankles, back and leg are covered in swollen, itchy red spots. I have bits on my face near my eye and cheek.
This place flat out lied to us and deserves to be shut down!

When I got to nyc this was probably the cheapest option to stay for couple of days, so I checked in and the first thing I did was checking the sheets and wasnt a sign of those pests. So i took a nap and woke up after a couple of hours I switched the light on and there was about ten bugs crawling on the sheet. I found countless bites all over my body, that was a really bad experience, if you are aware of that avoid this place.

I stayed in this hostel two nights in a single room when I first got to NYC. A week later a ton of bites showed up on all over my ankles and wrists. And I went to the doctor and he confirmed it was bedbugs. I called to complain to the hostel and every time someone answered the phone and I told them what I was calling about their response was always "Oh okay" as if it was nothing new. I would freak out if I knew I was working in a place with bedbugs!

I was supposed to stay here for new years of 2011. Not only had it been under construction for a remodel for the three years since my friend had stayed there but other nasty surprises awaited. My friend and I checked in and checked the sheets for bugs, seeing none. We crawled in and took a nap for a couple hours only to wake up with bugs everywhere! We had forgotten to check the extra blanket at the foot of the bed, which was crawling with large blood filled bugs. Luckily we did get our money re
funded as "no bugs had ever been seen before" but it was kind of telling that we didn't see anyone besides the deskman in the 7 hours of our stay nor as we hauled our luggage past the first two floors of construction to the bug ridden third floor.
