This place is just poorly kept. It's dirty and half of everything in it is broken and/or covered in plastic, I assume due to bed bugs. We attempted to stay there and left when we realized that it wouldn't be possible to sleep in such a dirty bed. Most hostels are communal in the sense there is a desk agent... More

I've stayed in close to 10 hostels on my current vacation in the U.s - the standard has been overwhelmingly high. Until I reached Piedmont: it is incredibly poorly signposted and difficult to locate; it's check in and booking procedure feels unsecure and vague; most of all, the filth of the rooms. Bugs in my room, pieces of bread, mould... More

I am very upset about the service you have given me in the hostel. I had a severe allergy on the face, neck and bust with the bugs that were in the room. Also, they changed my reservation of a large one small room without asking, changed the rate. Piedmont House has bad service hurtful to health, must take care... More

I'll start with the positives: most of the people are really nice and friendly, and the location is decent. Now on to the negatives, and one main one stands out as you can see from the previous 2 posts and this one: Bed bugs. Honestly, this has been a prevalent problem; and from the looks of it, the management is... More

Outside of its ideal location, the Piedmont House was really disappointing. First, they don't have an a front desk so you walk in without any direction and it is so cluttered that any directions they have posted are hard to find. Second,the # they have you dial...no one answers. Mostly, I wound up with bites all over! I understand that... More

I normally don't take the time to write reviews, but this place was so appalling that I feel obligated to let people know about the situation at Piedmont House. The most alarming problem with this place is BED BUGS. I was there for one night before I heard that another visitor had found bed bugs in her room. Judging from... More

I just wanted you to know that I witnessed the elderly man, abusing others, and even pushing one in the kitchen when he reported an issue with bed bugs. He had screamed at him. Keep in mind that that was not the first case, I observed others, too, and I was also abused. The man could have been charged with... More

I didn't read the email that described the self check-in procedure. I knocked on the window to the office, the guy inside was rude but finally let me in. Without me saying anything, he told me I was on my own and that he shouldn't be expected to be on duty 24 hours a day yada yada (It was about... More

I brought a group of high school students here. It was good pricing for a large group. The guys dealt with the place's dilapidated appearance, the teenage girls had more trouble. The place also kinda had a funny smell. One of the girls found a bug, but it wasn't a bed bug and we found only that one over the... More

After speaking to the man who runs the place, I called up the first person I know in the area asking to pick me up, explaining "I don't feel safe here." Booked online many hours in advance, credit card was already charged. When I showed up they had rented out my room to others, had other rooms they'd rented out,... More
