Amazing deal for the price”

For the amount of money i saved I couldn't rave more about this hotel. The prices I was seeing were daunting. I chose to put my money into meals and not the hotel cost. The only sacrifice was not having my own dedicated bathroom. We shared 4 amongst us in the hallway and a couple were within 10 steps. All had showers. There was always a free bathroom. The room was small but clean. We had all we needed without any luxuries. I would have liked a small microwave but the sink in the room was nice. The heat and AC worked great. The window opened. The bed was comfy enough although small. We chose a bunk which was fine and each bunk had its own small flat screen TV. The staff was super helpful and just nice people. The location couldn't be better. We were a 3 minute/3 block walk from the M,E and 6 subway lines in the Lexington station. We even found an elevator for that Subway station at 62 and Lexington for our luggage. We walked our luggage to the E line to NJ Transit to catch our departing flight from Liberty Airport in New Jersey and saved over $120 doing so. I took the subway several times during our stay without any issue. Fairly cheap. There are great restaurants right outside your door and tons more within a 2-3 block radius in any direction. You can walk to some major sights and hop on the subway for others. The room was very secure and we couldn't hear anyone else in their rooms. The only noise came if guests were talking in the hallways, but the hotel was very quiet at night. I would highly, highly recommend.

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.
