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.

    Really cute place, in a great location, with a wonderful staff. Everything was clean, and the complimentary breakfast was surprisingly legit. I'll probably stay here on every trip to NYC in the future.

    Always a good place to stay while in NYC for concerts/opera. Just four blocks from the N-Q-R subway stop. Very clean. Included plentiful breakfast items are a nice perk.

    Solid hostel close to Madison Square Park and in a safe area. It was clean and good value for the money, the bed was comfortable and not as squeaky as expected based on previous reviews. You can definitely hear the street from your room and the radiator in our room would periodically bang quite loudly so would recommend bringing earplugs to sleep. Although it is clean, we also found it helpful to bring flip flops to wear in the shower.

    Nice hostel right in the middle of Manhattan. The room was clean but a bit too narrow. Also, the bunk bed was a bit squeaky and the pipes are old, so we could hear some clanging overnight. Otherwise really cool place, the staff is friendly and the breakfast was good as well. Good value for the money!

    This place have rats, period. Stayed there for 4 days with the GF, and woke up in the middle of the night to some noise in our room. Later in the morning we discovered some chocolate she bought chewed up and with bite marks. They only had one person at place in the reception and she kindly moved us to another room. We hadn't had the same luck when the washing machine didn't do our laundry properly; the guy at the reception that night was clueless. Other than that, average quality for the money.
