yap - this residence has bedbugs.


I am not sure how to report a new location but my daughter stayed in the Candy Hostel, 316 West 95th Street last week, 16th and 17th September.. She was booked in for four days thru to Sept 20th, but had to leave on the second day due to what we now know was a bed bug infestation. She was moved to a hostel next door during the second night (very clever..spreading the infestation!). Being from Ireland and not having encountered this before she believed the manager when he said it was cockroach

es. She is now back in Ireland and guess what? the bed bugs came with her. This is a very uncommon problem here and we are trying as best we can to deal with it.

This is a residence now, not a hotel any more.
They got bed bugs. (As of summer 2008.)


I used to live in this hotel for about one month.
It seems to have been a shelter for poor New Yorkers, the management is trying to get them out and build it into a tourist hotel and students residence.
Everything bad you can find in reviews is true:
The hotel is bedbug infested (not speaking about mice in the shared kitchen, which sometimes sneak below the at least 2inch gap below the door into your room..; roaches etc).
While I sincerely pity the miserable living circumstances of the poor

long-term residents (and I mean poor socio-economically), I was shocked to find out the Riverside Inn houses AIDS patients - blood sucking parasites, which are "believed to not transmit diseases", students/tourists, and AIDS patients.
Now tha's a bummer, isn't it?
After a few weeks of useless exterminator visits and aggressive behaviour by the manager (Patrick), from whom I wanted to get my 800$ rent per month paid in advance for another month back - and who trully scared me with his bullying behaviour (check out a review of some guy who had his head pushed against a cab door by the same manager in the fight over getting the money back - I read it later and thanked God I had given up on my demands..), I simply gave up. Moved to another appartment. And brought the bugs with me.
When returning to Europea, I kept my suitcase in the stairway (imagine the neighbour's looks), taking out clothes by hand and washing them in boiling water at the entrance of my appart, throwing away my suitcase afterwards
I hope no one was so unlucky to pick it up - it was almost unused and expensive.

check out this review by a German woman who worked at the United Nations, which recommended this hotel (!)

And - too late for me - I found this article from 2005 (!) telling about the New Yorker poor living in the Riverside Inn AND its bedbug infestation.
I suggest everybody google their hotel+bedbugs before going ANYWHERE.

Unluckily, not many people write reviews about bedbugs. An increasing number does, and this site is great.
Regards,
and good luck for your search for bed bug-free hotels!
P.s. The Morning Side Inn is run by the same staff, and according to the (nice) hotel staff, moving there is pointless as it has the same issues.
I thank them for their honesty.
I will copy past my review there.
