But after staying at the Astor Hotel, Ozlen says his dream vacation immediately turned into a nightmare.

After his girlfriend woke up with numerous bites all over her body, Ozlen decided to see if he could find the cause of the bites.

That is when he says he found a massive bedbug infestation under the mattress.

Ozlen even recorded video of the infestation and posted it to YouTube.

The video has received nearly 1 million views as of this posting.

Ozlen told Eyewitness News the hotel was apologetic and they did refund him.
