  • Rooms were far too small!! Could barely get our bags into the room. Plus we had to drag our 20kg bags up 3 flights of stairs without any assistance. There is no friendly atmosphere and couldn't meet other room mates at social events etc arranged by the hostel. Location was good but would never stay here again.

  • We really enjoyed our stay in the American Dream Hostel in NY. Although our room was quite small, it was really clean like the bathrooms were too. The breakfast was great, bagels, toast, fresh waffles, fruits, cereals and more were offered. Staff was really nice and it is easy to get to know people there. When I was looking for a hostel in NY, it was the cheapest with a good rating, but I didn't expect much. After having stayed there I can say that I would always book it again when coming to NY.

  • We were happy with this hostel (compared to other New York hostels we have experience), great staff and location, couldn´t get better. There was also breakfast included and good wifi -connection. Would definitely go again and recommend to everyone.

  • Very happy with our stay here.... convenient location, small and friendly and helpful staff. Only issue is that there isn't an elevator, so this could be an issue for some. Certainly would recommend this place to others.
