American Dream Hostel is a family-run place and we've been welcoming travellers for the last 15 years. We're all about treating you like you're one of our own. That means you'll get a free breakfast (you can't argue with homemade waffles!) and there are free snacks, including cookies, throughout the day. We've got a kitchen where you cook dinner or pack a lunch, and there's a games room where you can play board games or veg out in front of the TV.


We're in Manhattan’s historic Gramercy Park district, with the iconic Flat Iron Building a 9-minute walk away. See the city from the top of the Empire State, 17 minutes away. For laid-back afternoons, stroll along the Highline and discover cool food joints in Chelsea Market – take bus M23-SBS for 14 minutes to W 23rd St/10 Av for both. Reach us from Newark Liberty Airport or John F. Kennedy International Airport by taxi – it'll take around 40 minutes – or use the AirTrain system to connect to the subway. Grand Central Station is a 19-minute walk away.

Rooms and Dorms

Staying with us is like a home from home – everyone gets a private room (single, twin, double or triple) but the bathrooms are shared. In your room, you'll have your own sink and mirror as well as perks including a TV and air con. We'll set you up with free sheets and towels.

Extras and activities

Grab a free city map or use our internet kiosks to plan your stay. Free Wi-Fi's on tap for researching the best spots to visit – or keeping on top of your social feeds. You can grab some extra time in bed on your last day with our late check out or if you decide to stay for longer, take advantage of our laundry room! Leave your backpack in the luggage store by our 24-hour reception, so you can fit in a last-minute trip to Greenwich Village hands-free.

    We had a great and enjoyable stay at the hostel! Facilities are so nice and the staff are so helpful. Best part is the free breakfast. You get fruits, all kinds of bsgels, donut, waffle, pastries, cereals and a whole lot! Awesome service and good location! Cleanliness is superb! Would come back here when I am in NYC!

    I stayed in the private room with a bunk bed for two people. It was extremely comfortable, especially for the price. The toilet and shower are in the hallway but we stayed during the week and didn’t have any issues waiting to use them. We stayed on the third floor and had the best bathroom with lots of space. The building was in a perfect location in mid-town just a couple of blocks from the green line. Super convenient and secure, requiring a code to even get into the building. Loved it!!

    For a 100.00 bucks a night you get a clean single room, a decent breakfast, and a good, safe location to use as your base to visit NYC.

    This is a lovely hostel very conveniently located in the Gramercy Park neighbourhood. If you don't mind walking up THREE steep flights of stairs, this is a lovely property, very welcoming. On arrival, I was invited to join the other guests for coffee/breakfast, uncommon, compared to larger hostels. They have about 40 rooms on 3 floors, the lobby is one floor about ground-level and the rooms are mostly on the two floors above. My room had air conditioning. Tip: bring soap for the shower

    Basic hostel. Good location for visiting Manhattan. Windows didn't open properly, room had a bit of a musty smell, bed wasn't very comfortable. Breakfast was good. Hostel was not sociable. Overall good value considering free breakfast.

    Location: It's a nice hostel for a few days in an excellent location in Manhattan. Price: Prices are okay--on par for any hostel in Manhattan. Staff: Most staff seem friendly, however, we didn't interact with them very much. Breakfast: The included breakfast is great and they even think of small details such as a jar of breakfast bars to go if you're in a hurry. Facilities: All rooms include aircon which is a blessing in the hot weather! There are not too many bathrooms/toilets.

    It was good, if you only need a bed and a shower. A/C and tv didn’t work, but luckily it wasn’t too warm.

    Horrible beds. Had to take the matress on the floor and the breakfast was not refilled afterwards. Would choose another location next time.

    Overall I was very disappointed. The positives, cheap and not a bad location. The negatives, I emailed asking for directions from Newark airport they replied stating I get a train from the airport to grand central then from there to 23rd street, sounded simple enough, turns out it’s not simple by train at all, you have to get an airport train to one stop, from there to penn station, from there you have to walk to another station then from there to 23rd street, the point I am making is these in
