American Dream Hostel

The room is very tiny, but clean with plenty of shared toilets and bathrooms. The area feels safe, even late at night. When I arrived I only had very little time to reach my first tour. I was immediately given my room. Afterwards the receptionist showed me where I could best take a subway uptown.

Guest Reviews

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

The room is very tiny, but clean with plenty of shared toilets and bathrooms. The area feels safe, even late at night. When I arrived I only had very little time to reach my first tour. I was immediately given my room. Afterwards the receptionist showed me where I could best take a subway uptown. I did make the tour. One thing I liked less was the fact that I had a suitcase weighing around 20kg which I had to carry up several floors and the steps were narrow. The hotel could use an elevator. The friendly owner made fresh waffels each morning and the first morning he also provided Nutella for my bread. I appreciated this a lot. As a guest you can use the computers. (advised is $ 1 for half an hour), which is lucky because my tablet had broken down. The last night I stayed there, there was an overflow of guests fot breakfast and there is not a lot of room in the breakfastroom. Guests could then take food to one of the other rooms.
