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...

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!
