    This was my second time staying at the American Dream hostel in NYC and I had a great stay. The location is very convenient and I enjoyed meeting other guests. I felt very safe and my room was clean and comfortable. Handy to have a sink in the room! Happy to be able to stay in Manhattan and not have to pay an arm and a leg!

    Great stay. Clean, felt secure, vibe was quiet and friendly. Loved having own AC unit or window that opened. Loved the ability to store luggage for free before or after stay. Will return.

    Location is great. Really nice homey feel. Other guests were quiet and polite. Room was said to be clean, but upon arrival there were still dirty linens on bed and chair. The staff apologized profusely and it was fixed by the time we returned that night. Customer service was excellent. Price is good, especially compared to hotels in the area. Will absolutely stay again.

    Love love love this hostel! Highly recommend. Everyone is so sweet & if you can’t check in, they will make sure to let you know the room number & leave the key there if you are arriving late. I wish I could have stayed longer!

    I was in town for 2 nights. I booked American Dream hostel for my stay. They were very accommodating, provided breakfast such as donuts and muffins, and good wifi. I enjoyed how spacious and private the showers were and bathrooms. I also really appreciated how they had blowdryers, umbrellas and other things that would be helpful incase a guest forgot one and it was needed.

    Dirty bed sheets and bunks. Also I was not able to regulate the AC which was annoying. Right next to the hostel is a big station of the US postal service meaning there are constantly trucks going in and out causing lots of noise. If you have a room facing the street like we did-RIP Tiny rooms and in the 3rd floor (at least in my room) there was bad wifi. Enough to send WhatsApp messages but not enough to open websites etc… Cleanliness and comfort 2/10 Staff and location 9/10
