Great location, close to subway and walkable distance to several points of interest, felt safe to walk back to the hotel after dark. Friendly and helpful staff. I never had to wait for the shared bathrooms (though admittedly I got up at 7am). Not luxurious by any means, but it felt less "budget" than I imagined for the price (considering it is in midtown Manhattan). The rooms are small but well equipped, both the room and the shared bathrooms were clean and in good condition. Would recommend, for anyone who wants a cheaper way to stay in Manhattan and doesn't require a lot of room this is a hit.

Highly recommended

Very affordable compared to other hotels in the city. Great staff, clean facilities. I stayed in a single bed room shared bathroom. Granted, it was a very small bedroom but comfortable nonetheless (and forced me to go out & explore the city).

Makes perfect sense!

Small room with double bed and private bath. Why spend hundreds more per night for more square footage when all you are going to do is crash after a night out in the big city? Clean. Comfortable. The only issue was a lack of any hot water on the last morning of our stay. Should have been a credit or voucher for that inconvenience.

So close to the subway and very central position

Posted Nov 21, 2014
Pros: Clean, tidy and close to subway, stores and restaurants.
Cons: Hand dryer in the bathroom.
Location: Rockefeller Center, Morning Star cafe [feel like a local], easy access to subway.
My 2nd stay at Pod 51 and always impressed with the cleanliness and professionalism of the team. My friend traveled with me and her first time in NYC. She too was impressed. Definitely would stay again.

Great value for money

This was our first visit to the States and working to a budget we were very pleased with our choice of hotel. A great location within walking distance to many attractions and a variety of eating places. Our room was clean, warm and modern - would definitely use again

Next time I would choose private bath

Very clean and can't beat the price. Love the concept of small and efficient but would choose private bathroom instead of shared.

Nice hotel close to Times Square

Posted Nov 18, 2014
Pros: Location, close to train stop (about 3 blocks), and close to a super good bagel place (on the same block).
I actually had to upgrade to a queen size bed/room because the single was way to small. It's a nice hotel, pretty clean, but not big guy friendly. My room had a private bath, but it was tiny. I had to sit sideways on the toilet, and barely fit in the shower. The last day I realized that the shared bathrooms are way bigger. So get a queen size bed and used the shared bathroom if you're about 6'2, 280lbs and bigger.
