"Great value in a great location"
located in Mid-town Manhattan, this was a great place to stay. Easy walking to all the best things to see and do and close to an MTA stop for access to all NYC.

"Small and hip"
Small rooms but clean and comfortable. The only negative is they seem to cater to very young crowd. All things equal, would choose another place not so "hip." I don't need diagrams on the back of the door showing how to have "fun" on the bed.

Very clean room in a great neighborhood. Just the room was really small like a jail cell. The TV was really small no ice machine no refrigerator and you have to share a bathroom with a whole floor. Other than that I had a decent stay.

"Two thumbs up!"
I have stayed at the pod hotel many times. The location is great! It's a quiet area but all you have to do is turn the corner and there's restaurants and bars. The hotel is in walking distance to Times Square and Rockefeller center. I highly recommend the pod hotel to my friends and family when they visit NYC.

"It's a POD!"
If you know what to expect, Pod 51 can be a fun place to stay. However, note that they call it Pod for a reason. I had inadvertently booked a room that was about 6' wide by 12' long with 2 bunk beds, a small desk, and a small sink... that's it. Bathroom was in the hall. That said, it proved to be cozy and clean. I never had an issue getting one of the 2 bathrooms when needed. The roof deck was a nice place to have a beer and break open the laptop. I would stay again but would request a room with an ensuite bath.

Nice small room. Friendly helpful staff. Second stay at this pod. A bit noisy since there was a window a/c unit in that doesn't block out the street noise. Make sure you get a room with the bathroom attached vice down the hall. It isn't the 70's anymore.

"Great NYC location at an affordable price."
Great location for a great price. I was looking for an inexpensive hotel to stay at in NYC. I was a bit skeptical about not having a private bath in the room. There were 4 shared bathrooms on the floor and I never had to wait to use one. Room was very clean and quiet. Would stay there again in the future.

"If IKEA were in the hotel business..."
Could not recommend enough - by far the best hotel I've stayed in, New York or otherwise. Impeccably clean with a fun personality, and exceedingly comfortable for a room approximately the size (and look) of an IKEA floor model. Located in an area with a lot of foot traffic and a reasonable walk from a handful of subway stations, POD 51 is a great choice for a trip of any length. Weather permitting, there's even the additional perk of Greenacre Park across the street, which is a quiet place to relax on a nice day.

"A conventient stay"
I needed somewhere relatively affordable and clean to stay in the city. Pod 51 provided this. If you are looking for a luxe stay, this isnt it but if you are looking for somewhere to leave your bags during the day and sleep at night, this the place for you. Conveniently located a stones throw away from the 6 metro stop and a 10 minute walk from Grand Central. If you can, get the double room with a private bathroom. It's comfortable for 1 but may be a little crowded for 2 unless you are comfortable being in each others' space.

2 people should never be put into SOOOOO tiny a room even if you want to call yourself a pod. Ridiculously inefficient sink, stupid non space for a chair & desk top & tiresome having to climb over your roommate to get to your side of the bed. Claustrophobic.

Be careful booking this hotel. Apparently there are 2 of them and I booked it based on their advertising a roof top cafe and bar. They don't have one at this location. The room was tiny, the bathroom hardly even big enough for one person. Noisy and claustrophobic room.

"Short stay in NYC"
Visiting colleges with my son over spring break. This was perfect for us. The cafe had quality light snacks and beverages. Nice neighborhood with plenty of restaurants but not too noisy. The son was not to keen on the shared bathroom but I didn't have a problem, you just have to plan your activity there (I am brushing my teeth, I am showering, I am peeing etc.) and then equip yourself accordingly.

"Hotel for post conference site seeing."
Stayed here for 3 nights at the end of a conference. Low cost, small room, shared bathroom (with great shower). Efficient space in my room, nice tv, good wireless, very clean. Comfortable single bed in my room. Shower in shared bathroom was fun - multiple jets. Nice cafe in the lobby with craft beer. Good restaurants nearby and close to subway. Rooftop patio was a nice place to rest, eat or drink. I would stay here again. I saw couples and families staying there. Felt very safe and very comfortable. They offer free walking tours every day and arranged for a reasonably priced limo to the airport for me.

"closet space"
For 200+ dollars a night I was very dissatisfied. The rooms were too small. the narrow halls made it difficult to ignore the traffic of opening and shutting doors. Don't get me started on the arguments you are actually apart of while you sit in your closed and locked room. This closet was not worth 200 dollars.
