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

Great place for a quick stay! ”

Our flight was canceled and rescheduled for the next day so we had to find a place to stay in NY for the night, Pod 51 was the most convenient hotel I found in the area and I was very surprised with how modern and welcoming every part of the hotel is! Rooms are just enough, staff was friendly and helpful, plus we were able to check-in and check-out anytime we needed to which was awesome since we were on a random schedule due to flying. Definitely recommend if you need an easy place to stay for a night or two!

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.

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.
