Pod51 is a decent location. plenty of restaurants and bars. quiet rooms but you have to be ready for the smallest bathroom you've ever encountered. you can reach your bedside table while sitting on the toilet. i'll leave it at that.
quiet setting. nice window AC unit that you can control.
comfy bed and while the room is small, it's well designed. so, i recommend the Pod, as long as you are ok with the cruise ship bathroom.

We shopped around at hotels in New York trying to find the cheapest hotel, and we hit bingo for this hotel. We stayed in a bunk bed room, but it was fun. One of the cheaper options and the hotel is so nice!!! Shared bathrooms, but they are only outside your door and so beautiful you forget they aren't part of the room. I would definitely recommend! Close to midtown, you could walk in 20 minutes, or catch the two subways that are 5 min walk away

It's been years that I dream to go to NYC and my dream finally came true this year. For my first time in the Big Apple, I wanted to be alone in order to discover the maximum as possible. I booked a room at the Pod Hotel firstly because of its location (51st, between 2nd and 3rd avenue). So I was really happy with that.
The service is good, people that work there are very nice and helpful. The rooms are cleaned up every single day so I have nothing to say from this point of view. I was just a bit disturbed at night by the noise of the ventilation but I rapidly got used to this.
The only negative point comes from the elevators that can be extremely long. And, this could seem stupid, but they are not very clever as if you ask for them at the 12th floor to go to the first one, and if somebody else ask for on the 14th floor, the elevator doesn't come to the 14th floor before to go down then, but comes to the 12th floor, go up to the 14th and then goes down...

But this is the only negative point for me. And the breakfast is really good.

As most reviews state - the rooms are tiny. But there's nothing to complain about.
Stayed in a "Bunk Pod" with my friend for almost 2 weeks in May. Shared bathrooms are not an issue at all, in fact, they actually worked out better for us (two 21 year old females) as we weren't on top of each other trying to get ready to go out.
Great location - right near the 4/E train lines.
Rooms have everything needed within them - a bed to crash after a long day shopping/long night partying!
We had 2 suitcases each, as well as a rather large hand-luggage - so long as you're tidy, space really isn't an issue. There's enough space so long as you're not spending all day in your room (who would?)
Would stay again on another visit to the states!

Room Tip: Perhaps ask for a room away from lifts for less noise but again, was not a massive issue.
