It was scary.... A review of Bowery's Whitehouse Hotel

We all know that places to stay in New York are bloody expensive... but this place was a total disgusting dump and rip-off... On our first night they put us right next to the showers and toilets and we did not sleep a wink, especially since it seemed like the lights were on all the time... we complained and they moved us up to the top level... why they didn't do that in the first place is beyond me... it wasn't much better... only slightly darker... The room down the end which belonged to a lodger reeked and was full of rotting food and wouldn't suprise me if a dead body was in it...As for security it doesn't really exisit...

so if you want to break into a room go ahead... oh sorry you don't even have to break in... just go to the counter ask for a room number and they instantly give you the key... we found out by accident as we asked for the wrong cupboard... the girls next to us got broken into and had their wallets stolen (while one of them was sleeping)...You will find at this dump that they don't ask for payment of the full stay...

because to be honest who would want to stay for more than a few days...It is not worth staying here jsut to save a few extra dollars...

there are a lot better places...We couldn't wait to get out of there...

and it will stay blocked out of our memory forever...
