  • Good location, near to everything. Good staff and a very good breakfast. The rooms are very small but the necessary just to sleep. As we have already know rooms without restrooms are unlikely, but you deal well with it if you are prepared to be practice.

  • American Dream Hostel lives up to its name. I have stayed there twice and the place is wonderful, but even more so is their staff. 10/10 would stay there again.

  • I brought my family to NYC over February school break, this hostel is secure and clean, close to 2 different subway lines. There is plenty of linen, blankets and towels; soaps and shampoos left behind by the other guests. The rooms are small but clean and warm with an extra heater in the room. There is only one shower per floor, and 2 toilets per floor that are both shared. Great breakfast.

  • I spent 5 nights at American Dream Hostel and I enjoyed. The rooms are very good and all other facilities are clean. The breakfast is fantastic with lots of pastries and fresh fruit! Locoation is good too with plenty of restaurants and shops around and there is not too much street noise. The only remark I have is for some of the staff: although helpful when asked for, they could be a little bit more enthusiastic or welcoming at times, a simple 'hello' when you walk in would be enough.
