I stayed here with my friend for 3 nights and 4 days. Yes the room was TINY but it doesn't matter because you're in there to sleep. The room we had was a bunk bed and I was happy that there was a sink with soap and towels. The beds were that, just a bed, nothing luxurious. A desk and a safe were also a plus too. The location was stellar. For the price, you can't beat the location. There is a 24 hour McDonald's down the street and it is about a 15 minute walk to Times Square with tons of restaurants and shops. The subway was our go-to, especially to get to Central Park, which was around a 25-30 minute walk. It was nice to take transportation on our way back to our room! Pretty much everything is local and expect to walk from 15 to 30 minutes to your tourist sites. If you are planning to do the hop on, hop off red bus, you are very close from the hotel to the stops.

I didn’t realize that I booked a room with a shared bathroom. It’s basically like a dorm in college. Room was small, but I expected that. With it being New York and all. Location isn’t too far away from Times Square, just a 15 minute walk. I probably won’t ever book again just because I like my own space. Staff was very nice and easy check in.

There needs to be a gym and the no bathroom thing should be in bold letters instead of small

Pod 51 is located in a GREAT area! Close to many restaurants, the subway lines, and there's a CVS store right around the corner. My room was very clean and the cleaning staff was very friendly and always ready to help, if needed. The top deck is awesome! Great place to unwind in the evening with a great view! Highly

I have never stayed at a pod style hotel. My son had stayed at hostels in Europe and this was somewhat similar. We had the bunk room which was small but very clean and sufficient. We had a sink and enough room for our luggage. The bathroom was across the hall and never had a wait. The café for a coffee or breakfast was nice in the lobby and the roof top deck was excellent. We had no noise issues and the location was great.

I would have given this a lower rating, but the roof deck is so awesome that it went up. However, understanding that this hotel is in mid-Manhattan, the room was so tiny we could barely walk in it - and the bathroom was so small that my very tall husband couldn't fit in it! There were NO amenities. I've stayed in other hotels in midtown Manhattan at equivalent prices that were much better.
