    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.

    We enjoyed staying at the hostel, the location is excellent - very easy to get from JFK airport by the subway. Breakfast is luxurious, enough food for everyone. (A little crowded sometimes because the kitchen is small). Our room was small and compact, served us exactly as we wanted. In our room there was a bunk bed for two individuals - the mattress downstairs was very resting. Unfortunately, the mattress upstairs was less comfortable and felt very old. very clean- the blankets not so clean..

    American Dream is comfortable and pleasant. We had a bunk bed room for 2 persons, with a sink and TV. Very minimal and small but also adequate, because there is a room down the hall with computers and tables, and also the breakfast room for sitting. To my knowledge there isn't a room with couches, but I didn't go past the first floor. The breakfast options are good -- healthful things like berries and other fruit, granola, banana chips, as well as yummy pastries available all day.

    Great location. I had my own room, which was fine. The shower was fine, don't expect too much from the breakfast though. I just got mine outside.

    the Walls are very thin and you can hear the people having breakfast from your room (if you are next to it) and the curtains wouldnt cover the sunlight in the morning. Still, the place is clean and breakfast is very good.

    Very Good

    The location was good, could walk to East Village and Times Square easily enough! The staff were also very friendly. The breakfast was pretty good, they sometimes supply donuts!! Free coffee and tea throughout the day. The room was ok, it was very loud in the room as the window is single glazed and had a crack in the panel so wasn’t fully closed. The carpets near the bathroom are also quite dirty so don’t forget to bring flip flops! The bathroom is clean though.

    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.

    The single bed room was very basic. The first room we were given had a window that opened against a brick wall letting no air or light through. The second one was better. The bunk bed, however, was super wobbly and squeaky. The room was clean but very basic. The double bunk bed room with a bathroom shared between it and another room was much nicer and not so stuffy. The breakfast was good and varied but there was a huge live cockroach on the floor one day. The central location was good.
