Feels very comfortable and home-like. You can tell the owners have put in a lot of time thinking of small homey touches. Good breakfast selection of food including toast and spreads, bagels, cereal and muffins/doughnuts. Great security. Shower was poor water pressure and hard to remain on one temperature - it kept changing hot to cold. Friendly staff who were more than happy to help

- very nice staff - great breakfast - nice interior - a bit expensive for no-daylight bunk bed rooms (okay for other rooms) - difficult to adjust right temperature in showers (used 3 different showers on all floors) - noisy heating in our first room

First off, great location and within walking distance to two subway stops. Breakfast is excellent and the kitchen well-stocked. Staff are helpful. Rooms are small and do tend to be noisy but are clean and well-kept, you spend all day sight-seeing in new york anyway so a small room isn't much of an issue. The bathrooms were always clean and offer privacy. I stayed a week here and would come back if I was ever in new york again.

Excelente lugar para dormir en Nueva York, la habitación estaba muy limpia, con toallas y lavamanos interno, TV, estuve en invierno y el clima excelente, no vi aire acondicionado para el verano pero quizá tienen una solución, tenía una ventana y estaba bien iluminada.

Good Hostel, but it seems more like a Hotel which is also an advantage. Small but clean room for 2. Ii was very noise, but I guess NY is VERY noise, just use some earplugs and it is OK. Shared bathroom clean and OK. Walking distance to Times square (30 to 35mins). Close to subway station. I would definitely recommend this hostel to other people.

Nice location with a quiet atmosphere. But the bed is not that cozy compared to the price of it. Except that, everything was fine.

This is the second time i have stayed at The American Dream Hostel. The first time was great and now since the premise has been upgraded my stay was even better. On this journey I have also stayed in conventional hotels where the rooms have not been maintained as clean as do the cleaning staff at the ADH. Thank you Marcell for the great breakfasts and your courtesy.

Very good location and awesome breakfast! It is a pitty that wifi isn't available in the rooms though don't expect a party atmosphere the rooms are cold at night (we were there in november), it seems that there is no heating but you can ask for additional blankets Only one bathroom per floor... it is also a bit noisy especially if your window overlook on the street, so be prepared with earplugs

Stayed for 10 days. Very valuable for bucks as the location is superb; I love the cleanliness. You'll never get similar level of cleanliness in Europe. Staffed 24/7 so can easily check in late especially coming in late from Europe. Will defy stay again.
