This was a really great hostel. It was comfortable and really clean - the cleanliness was the most important bonus for me having come from a more expensive and dirty hostel over on the west side. The breakfast was nice but a bit too sweet for my British tastes - waffles, syrups, muffins, bagels, oreos etc. The only reason I...

This hostel is great if you're looking for somewhere to unwind after a long day trekking around Manhattan. It's such a cool space and has a welcoming and safe vibe about it. Loved my stay here, would definitely recommend!

I came into NYC on the 23rd st. green line which was only 3 short blocks to the hostel (5 min.). From the moment I walked up the stairs to the front desk the service was very personal, the girl knew I was coming and already was looking to put me in a better room, she got me room #16...

The hostel is great, very comfy, the location is amazing, breakfast is superb - coffee, doughnuts, fruit, very clean bathrooms BUT be very careful what room u r booking as I ended up having one with no window which felt very claustrophobic and like living in a shoe box. I understand it was all my mistake, so be sure to...

I stayed here for 4 nights in June (2016). Couldn't be happier. It was centrally located, clean, quiet, comfortable, safe, and for the price you can't beat the location. The rooms are small, but it's not a big deal since most people don't go to NYC to sit in their room. I don't want to over emphasize the room size...

I had a small private room, with shared bath. It was very clean, and contained a wash basin, so that was pretty convenient. The shared bath was extremely clean. Staff was very courteous and friendly. This location is ideal; a few minutes' walk to Madison Square Park and the Flatiron Building. The breakfast was great. They had deliveries of a...

On a recent visit to assist my daughter in a move we needed accomodations on spur of the moment - for three nights. The American Dream was a dream!
