    The location was perfect because it is convenient to public transportation. The people working at the front desk were really nice and helpful. Even though the bathrooms are shared I still had a lot of privacy because each bathroom/ shower is in a separate room instead of a large room with stalls. The bathrooms and bedrooms were really clean. It was actually really quiet at night considering the location. It might have been quieter for us since we were on the 4th floor.

    We loved this hostel. My Bf and I stayed for a long weekend in a private room and loved it. The location is AMAZING!!! We didn’t need public transport to get around most of Manhattan, walking distance to the flat iron district, empire state and some great bars on 3rd Ave. the staff were really helpful too. Best of all was the breakfast, it had everything you could possibly want. I was in heaven. Thanks American Dream we will defo be back x

    Good location. Quite noisy due to traffic and also constant plumbing clanging sounds. If you are sensitive to noise, don't expect to sleep well. My heater in rm7 did not work and the overhead light was on the entire night. The night front desk (middle age, glasses, likely french) was incredibly rude and useless in helping us with our situation. Bed mediocre at best. 1 bathroom and 1 shower on the bottom floor. Breakfast was meh. Overall 6/10.
