Negative Reviews

Prolonged wait for bathroom at times.

American Dream Hostel features shared bathrooms on each floor. During busier periods, the wait to use the shower in these communal bathrooms can be a little longer than some would like.

Some temperature issues reported.

While rooms are equipped with air conditioning and heating, some guests find temperatures to be uncomfortable at the hostel. According to reports, temperatures can be too hot during muggy New York City summers, while some guests find themselves facing the cold during the winter months.

Stairs can be difficult to navigate with luggage.

The hostel is situated in a four-story tenement-type building with no elevator. Some guests find the stairs difficult to climb, particularly with heavy luggage, something worth considering if you struggle with mobility. Other guests happily report that employees are happy to carry luggage upstairs for guests.
