Great place for a single traveler!

The Pod 51 was perfect for a weekend trip to the big apple. The bed was comfy, the wifi was stable and the staff were friendly. The room is very small but really- how much room do you really need?! The location was perfect for getting around via the subway. There is an indicator light above the door letting you know which of the 4 bathrooms on the floor are open and each bathroom was unique & most importantly- clean. I will stay here again.

Good hotel for the money!

I really like the hotel as far and the guest, cafe, and the employees. The room was clean, it's was just really small and took about an hour to ajust to. The shared bathrooms weren't bad, but I would still choose to have one in my room next time. Overall I have a great experience at this hotel and I would stay again! It's super close to the subway and only takes about 5 minutes to Times Square via subway. Also only a couple blocks down from 5th Ave, which is where I spent most of my time! I enjoyed my stay! Oh, and the breakfast is great!

Quick City Trip

I was a bit upset that my room didn't come with my own personal bathroom but I had an overall good experience at the pod. Small yet comfortable room.

clean and modern and inexpensive place to sleep

My daughter and I stayed two nights at Pod51 in January - it was a great choice for us since we were mostly out and about and in our room really only to sleep. We had the bunk bed room - it is very small but the room and hallways and bathrooms (down the hall) were very clean and modern - it was a fun experience. My daughter loved hanging out on the top bunk to watch *her* TV - and I was happy to be down below watching a different show on *my* tv. It was a 3 block walk from the subway station we used the most (2 blocks to a different line) so pretty convenient. The lobby area was undergoing some renovations but looks like it will be super cool when it is done. We forgot my daughter's blanket there and they were very sweet and had it waiting for us when we returned. If you want to spend time lounging around your room, then this might not be the best choice- but if you want to be out and about?? Then this is awesome!

Great for the solo traveler

If you don't want to pay $200+/night for a room just for yourself, this is the place for you. Conveniently located, clean, free walking tours, a nice bar. I wasn't able to book a room ensuite but sharing the bathrooms in the hall was never a problem. Never had to wait & the light inside your room notifying you if they were occupied or not was very helpful.

worth the price

great location with multiple really fantastic restaurants nearby. the room was small, but completely sufficient for my needs. thought the shared bathroom situation would be gross and dorm-like, but it was very clean.
