I stayed here for 4 nights in June (2016). Couldn't be happier. It was centrally located, clean, quiet, comfortable, safe, and for the price you can't beat the location. The rooms are small, but it's not a big deal since most people don't go to NYC to sit in their room. I don't want to over emphasize the room size...

I had a small private room, with shared bath. It was very clean, and contained a wash basin, so that was pretty convenient. The shared bath was extremely clean. Staff was very courteous and friendly. This location is ideal; a few minutes' walk to Madison Square Park and the Flatiron Building. The breakfast was great. They had deliveries of a...

On a recent visit to assist my daughter in a move we needed accomodations on spur of the moment - for three nights. The American Dream was a dream! The wonderful breakfast choices could not have been more delightful particularly the fresh fruit and beaufiful baked goods. This stay ended up being a pleasant surprise. Rooms were small but clean...

Stayed there for a week. Excellent location & very clean! The room are simple but functional. The shared showers and toilets are cleaned regularly during the "rush hour" which is very appreciable. Only downside is the breakfast which is served in a rather small room. The food selection is limited. For the first days some doughnuts were offered but then...

The staff was very friendly and the breakfast was absolutely amazing. Never had such a great breakfast at a hostel, they have everything you can think of, fresh fruit, cereal, croissants, toast, bagels, donuts, eggs, juice,... The location is great for exploring Manhattan. The only negative thing I can say is that the room was quite warm, and I could...

This hostel is very clean with friendly and helpful staff. Bathrooms and showers are very clean. Located in a very nice neighborhood and close (walking distance) to Madison Square Park (Flatiron bldg), Empire State Building, and Union Square. The breakfast is included and is absolutely great, with fresh fruits, pastry, toast, bagels, and lots more.

Small room, but everything you need. Sink & TV in your room, shared shower and toilet. Great breakfast from 7-11am with cereal, fresh fruit, pastries, tea and coffee. Muesli bars and biscuits to snack on. I flew into LaGuardia airport and booked the blue shuttle bus on my arrival, which arrived 20 minutes later and dropped me at the door...

This was my second time at ADH and it was as good as the first one. I loved that this time I got a room with a view to the street. It was great because I could see the snow from my window. As always the receptionists are very cordial and helpful. The check in process is very fast. My...
