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...

We loved our stay at the American Dream Hostel. From the moment we arrived the staff were welcoming, allowing for an early check-in. The room was great for the price, the only downfall was the air conditioning/heating was in the window creating a gap for noise- being New York it was noisy so bring ear plugs. The toilets were clean...

The location is just perfect. You are in the center and you have several subway stations around. The hostel is very clean and they have the most comfortable beds I've ever experienced. The breakfast deserves a particular mention...it is simply wonderful!!

This is the first time in my life writing a review because this hostel is too awesome. Very clean and tidy. The location is good too, not too far from the subway station and there're pretty good choices for food nearby as well. The price is really affordable for this area. There's a staff call Andre, I'm not sure if...

I had never been to a hostel, so I didn't know what to expect, but I was pleasantly surprised. The hostel is in great location and probably 3 to 4 blocks from the 23 St station. It is located in the Gramercy area which is a really safe and calm neighborhood. The staff were really great and helpful. The room...

You never know what you are going to get when you stay in a hostel, and I could not have been happier with my stay at the American Dream Hostel! The photos on the website were accurate, the breakfast spread was awesome, the place was super clean, and the staff was friendly. I never had to wait for a shower....

I stayed for a couple of nights and I'd recommend it on the basis that by Manhattan standards, the hostel represents good value for money. It is also in a pretty good location - only about 25 minute walk from Times Square, and not far from many great attractions in New York. I stayed in a single room (with a...

American Dream has an amazing price tag for its location in the city! Subway is easily accessible, and you're close to many great attractions like Eataly and Madison Square Park. The rooms aren't huge, but you aren't spending much time in there anyways! The beds are clean, and the area is fairly quiet at night, so it's easy to get...
