we enjoyed the roof deck. The rooms are small but comfortable and clean. The hallway, however, always smelled of smoke a pot. The staff was friendly and approachable with concerns.

They no have ice machine feeling so bad the room it’s to small

The staff was very accommodating && friendly during my stay for the weekend.

The property was very clean, just the rooms were really small

Loved everything about my stay. This is definitely a place you want to stay when visiting!

Everyone on staff was helpful, polite and professional. I highly recommend Pod 51 as an affordable and fantastic place to stay

The decoration was amazing , the bathrooms are super small either way everything was fine so far

The price is amazing for the location. All you need and nothing you don’t. Reserved a full bed, which is a size full as in double, smaller than a queen, with private bath. My only criticisms are that the mattress is too firm, like a futon, and the bathroom door does not stay closed, it slides open due to gravity, so you have to hold it shut. Nice surprises include a cafe in the lobby for breakfast and a luggage hold service for late departures. Room was quiet.

Great location. Room is small (think Euro style) but very clean.

I liked how good of a place this was for how cheap it was, and in the middle of Manhattan. It was tiny and cramped for sure, but isn't all of New York? But even being compact, it was a comfortable stay. Everything was very clean, and with 4 shared bathrooms, there was no problem showering or taking care of business any time of day, even during the xmas holidays. It came with clean towels and soap and fresh sheets and pillows and both bunks had their own separate cable TV flatscreens. I just wish they gave us disposable slippers or something for the showers. Not that they weren't clean, they were cleaned everyday but it just seems like a good thing to have for communal showers

Good location, clean room and sheets, helpful employees.

Room extremely small. Shared 4 bathrooms basically with the entire floor

I liked the location of the property. I disliked the cleanliness of the communal bathrooms, which may or may not have been helped.

It was great A little small but comfortable clean. I will recommend it I would definitely go back there again everything. I was very satisfied with everyone With the consumers service was definitely one of the best ones I ever had before everyone help me Luis was one of the greatest person ever Thank you and everyone else for your help and your great service

The room is just what you need for a busy stay. Efficient, clean, economical.
