The bunk beds are good and not squeaky. But There's no life size mirror.

Our 2nd time staying at pod. Clean hotel with a great location. Close to grand central. We love scotty’s Diner just down the street. It’s open 24 hours.

I am disabled for now due to foot surgery and it was not disability accessible. But they were nice enough to send me to their sister hotel to Pod 42 on west 42nd St. and 9th avenue. This hotel is larger and very nice, and roller walker or wheelchair accessible. Thanks

Sixth time staying at Pod 39. Perfect location. Room exactly right to enjoy what NYC has to offer and have a comfortable, safe room waiting. Couldn’t imagine staying somewhere else.

First Pod Experience

First, but certainly won’t be the last time I stay at Pod 39. The location was ideal. The staff was pleasant, which provided for an easy check-in and check-out experience.

loud, cramped, stinky

Pros: Location and staff
Cons: smell
Location: NYPL, Grand Central, Empire State Building
First of all, I was not expecting the bars on the lower level and roof to be so busy. This hotel is probably for a young 20s set. It's loud. You can hear every person talking in your hallway. There were a lot of "bro" type guys in the bars and it was kind of a hook-up type of scene. My room was clean and the bed was comfortable enough, but the room had a really unpleasant mildew smell. It's also very cramped, which I expected, but I would not recommend staying here with more than one person. To put it this way: don't stay here with someone if you are not comfortable watching them go to the bathroom - and I mean literally sitting on the toilet - not to mention showering etc. My bathroom had a glass door that had about a three foot line of frosted glass across the center. The good news is that the location is fantastic - a few blocks from Grand Central and the NY Public Library and easily walkable, or easy to get a cab or ride service like Lyft or Uber. The staff is also very nice and helpful.
