This hostel is ideal for tourists looking to explore the city. It has everything you need from a hostel experience including extremely clean rooms and breakfast included.
In Manhattan there is no particularly cheap accommodation options however the American Dream was of the more reasonably priced. I stayed for 3 nights in a 4 bed female dorm. Both the rooms and the shared bathroom (only shared between 2 dorms) were clean which was my number one priority.
The hostel is located in the Flatiron district so it's a nicer neighborhood, coming back late at night I felt quite safe. Also only 2 blocks to the number 6 train which connects to Grand Central Terminal. There is a key to the building as well as each of the rooms, plus there is no curfew to come back at night so there was always a staff member on reception at nights.
Lou is the father of the owner - a really friendly guy who also works here. I saw him around a few times and he was always keen to have a chat and make everyone feel welcome. Actually if you get one of their business cards, the picture is actually of Lou as a younger man.
Next time I'm in NY I would absolutely stay here again.
