An excellent option if you are staying few days, all day long outside in the city. It is well located, clean and staff friendly. Nice free coffee and beagles in the mornings. Rooms small but enough to sleep well.

Very Good overall! The staff, rooms and overall service. A little bit restless because doorclapping is very loud, but I think thats normal in a such well visited hotel.... Action taken because of lost pyjama also very friendly.

If you’re ever stuck in the city for the night or doing overtime/long hours. This is a great price without spending your entire paycheck just to get some sleep. I don’t need a lot of space to get some zzzz in for the night.

I traveled alone for work and wanted to find somewhere affordable but still nice to stay in an accessible location. I really enjoyed this hotel. I had a private room and bathroom, and I was in a corner room so I had two windows and a nice view. It was cozy and had everything I needed. The bathroom is very small, which I knew and expected, but I'm 6'0" tall and a big person, so it was a tight squeeze in the little shower and the toilet wedged between the wall and the sink. Again, I didn't really mind - I was expecting a kind of tiny home-style bathroom situation - but just something to be aware of if you're a larger person! The hotel and my room were very clean - the only thing I noticed was that my remote control for the TV was kind of dusty. I hope they'll add wiping off the remote to the cleaning routine, but I just wiped it off with an alcohol wipe. Also the doors of other rooms closing were loud and sometimes woke me up at night or in the early morning. I tried to shut my door nicely once I realized it was kind of loud. The coffee shop in the lobby is great - good espresso drinks available as well as some breakfast and snack things. I had a fruit and yogurt parfait that was very good. The elevators are fast, the staff is friendly, the lobby is clean and inviting, and I really, really liked it! Would stay again for sure.

Overall, it was very basic. Great location, friendly staff. The room had a broken light and an outlet that was not working. I did not raise this to their team as I was just there to sleep and get ready. It's definitely a very basic hotel, more of a hostel.

I have stayed at Pod51 for several years now. Best value in NYC. Not only is the staff friendly - the clientele is international and have met some interesting people. Staff ALWAYS respond to issues promptly. ALSO - the ability to store my luggage on the last day of my stay is always helpful for me.

Roof deck and gardens are fun spaces. The staff are outstanding. The room was clean. The midtown location is super convenient. Loved the fun murals and colors. There is a bar upon entering the lobby. Excellent value!

I would stay here for short stays when I'm trying to explore more than be in my room. But if you're a lounger maybe not. I opted for the room with private bathroom, can't speak to shared bath experience. But it's super clear when you book which you're reserving. Pros: close to many subway and bus lines, cheap, easy to reserve, easy to find, still provide soaps & tissues, Cons: noisy (I sleep with ear plugs anyway), only two pillows, no blanket/comforter, wait times for elevators, nice furnishings but visibly worn
