Travelled on my own and with a friend. Staying at Pod 51 on 4 occasions. Staff always friendly and helpful. Always ask for a quiet room, as its slightly larger and has dual aspect. Pod 51 is close to Lexington Ave Station and lots of...More
My 15 year-old daughter and I visited NYC for the first time together in September. We stayed three nights at POD 51 and loved it! We were going to stay in a full with private bath and got upgraded to two fulls (still with our...More
This place will be my go-to for future stays in NY. It's the perfect mix of an economical option without being too youth hostel-like, and is situated at a great location, within 1 block of the Lexington/51st street subway station, and a 20 minute walk...More
I had an excellent stay at Pod 51 with my friend in December 2017 and would highly recommend this hotel to those on a tight budget. As expected, the rooms are very small but when you are visiting a city like New York you won't...More

This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the
affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
