This hostel is great if you're looking for somewhere to unwind after a long day trekking around Manhattan. It's such a cool space and has a welcoming and safe vibe about it. Loved my stay here, would definitely recommend!

We were overall very happy with the hostel. The room was small but still very nice and clean, with good airconditioning. The bathrooms were always clean and the laudry facilities were very useful. The breakfast each morning was great. There were many options available, including fresh waffles, donuts, fruit and bagels daily, great for those travelling on a budget. The... More

I came into NYC on the 23rd st. green line which was only 3 short blocks to the hostel (5 min.). From the moment I walked up the stairs to the front desk the service was very personal, the girl knew I was coming and already was looking to put me in a better room, she got me room #16... More

The hostel is great, very comfy, the location is amazing, breakfast is superb - coffee, doughnuts, fruit, very clean bathrooms BUT be very careful what room u r booking as I ended up having one with no window which felt very claustrophobic and like living in a shoe box. I understand it was all my mistake, so be sure to... More

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... More

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.

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... More
