Pod 51 is a delightful constant for my family and friends!”

There is never disappointment with Pod 51. My family and I have been going there for over a decade; it keeps getting better and better! You have everything you need and are so beautifully situated close to everything whether by subway or walking! The staff is utterly amazing and there is very little turnover. That speaks volumes unto itself. Give them a try; you will not want to leave!

The Best Budget Hotel in Midtown Manhattan”

My stay at Pod 51 was super worth it because the place is so accessible to everything. They have the best roof top view perfect for instagram feed. One of the most minimalist concepts that I actually like.

One of the cheapest in Midtown”

Midtown is expensive but you will be surprised that this hotel is very competitive in pricing. Even if shared bathroom - it was surprisingly clean and pleasant. Wifi a little bit slow, but enough for surfing or checking social media. Rooms are a little bit cramped but what do you expect for an expensive city like NYC.

Single Pod Shared Bathroom”

Young female solo traveler first time in NYC. I really could not find a fault. Staff were lovely, very clean, fresh sheets and towels every day, great value for money. I stayed a full 5 night. Great location to all subway lines. I would recommend an unlimited 7 day pass for anyone staying more than 3 days. I will 100% staying again next time in NYC. Safe location in Midtown. I never felt vulnerable even waling around past 12. I could control my room temperature and extra pillow provided. If a light sleeper, I would recommend earplugs. Showers were lovely and clean. I did notice the red occupancy lights for the shared bathrooms was activated when the light was on. People would forget to turn the lights off when leaving the bathroom at it would appear as occupied in the rooms so I would suggest to go an check even if all lights are on. Over all I really enjoyed my stay and would recommend Pod51 to anyone traveling on a budget. Joey

It met my basic needs, but was lacking”

I stay overnight in the city from NJ for workshops sometimes. I paid about $220 for my room with a shared bathroom. My experience was more so that of a hostel then a hotel. I don't mind the shared bathrooms, in fact its nice to not have it attached in my opinion, but the bed was hard and cheap, the sheets/blanket were like being away at a bunkcamp. For the price I expected just a little more comfort, and maybe a piece of art on the wall. The smart design is genius, I love the compact use of space, but for the price I expected a little more.

Very clean, efficient and convenient.”

I did find the bathroom very small, especially the sink and toilet area. I also think washcloths should be standard and having not to ask for them. Other than that, for NYC it’s a great value.

Could here every person in the floor entering or exiting their unit. The radiators were extremely loud and banged all night. Could not get any sleep and then really surprised by extra fee for services at check-in — this should have been part of our initial booking even if we used a discount site.

The people were really nice. Great for one nighter to sleep & go from all fun. Bathrooms are shareable for bunk bed rooms away from room but with lock. They are small but good for quick use. Hotel is close to 17th precinct so felt safe. Its also 24 min walk from Times Square. The rooftop is nice. I would come again.
