I stayed in a room with two twin beds and a shower in the room. (I actually got upgraded- I initially booked a bunk with shared shower.) A friend and I were going to a concert at Roseland, and the hotel was about a 20 minute walk to the venue. They have a outside garden and sell food at reasonable prices, and you can bring it outside to eat. They have a cool indoor common space to hang out. (Which is nice because the room space is small.) The best is the amazing upstairs roof deck. You felt like you had the coolest friends in the city and they let you stay at their place, and hang out on their deck. The staff was really helpful. It's covenient to the subway, so you can really get anywhere. This will now be my go to place.

we spent 2 nights at the Pod in a room with an en-suite bathroom. The room was a good size and the bed was large and comfy enough for 2 people, one of whom fidgets....My only gripes were
1.room was opposite the elevator doors, which announced their arrival with a loud bell. It also meant we were disturbed a couple of times by inconsiderate peopke.
2. Banging pipes above the room.

Apart from this the room was clean, comfortable and in a great location for NYC attractions.

Pod51 is an excellent choice for an reasonably priced accomdation in Manhattan, with an exceptional location in Manhattan on the E 51st street, 5-min walk from Lexington Ave.

I had the occasion to stay both in the double room with a queen-sized bed and in the single room and both were with bathroom. The rooms are surely small but have all comforts, including fast wi-fi internet, hairdrier, multichannel television, bed lamp, linens, sheets, blankets, money security, suitcase sustainer, wardrobe.

A single/double without bathroom costs about $160-200 + taxes. Add other $40 approximately for a room with bathroom (which I personally prefer).

Bathroom is well equipped with soaps and towels, and cleaning is done on daily basis.
Rooms have generally one to two windows with shade to keep privacy.
Customizable A/C or heater in the room. Windows are double to ensure quiet. Extra silence may be achieved asking in advance for a room on the top floors (the hotel has 14 floors)

Lobby service may occasionally be a bit rough, but nevertheless very professional and helpful.
The consierge was also very helpful. Moreover there are ipad available in the lobby and free PC for customers to google whatever.

The neighborhood is extremely safe. Moreover the segment of E 51st street where the hotel is located and 2nd ave nearby are full of very good restaurants. Everything is conveniently located: also a laundry service with drop-by the hotel is 2-3 min walking distance from the hotel at the corner or E 50th St. and 2nd Ave.

Metro stations are also conveniently located at walking distance.
Take a look at the breath-taking rooftop view.

Not a luxurious hotel but certainly an excellent choice in the expensive NYC.
Surely functional, and an excellent both for turism in NYC and to safely and quietly crash on a comfortable bed after an intense business day. To book a room use their site:

http://www.thepodhotel.com/

Note that sometimes however, rooms that are shown as unavailable online may still be available by directly contacting their reservation office by phone.

I will surely go back if I will have the occasion.

The rooms are small, the beds are bunky (at least our double bunk was), and the bathroom is down the hall (if you opt for shared bath), but that's where the similarities end. The hotel is surprisingly quiet (as compared to most college dorms), with guests from everywhere around the world, making for a fun, funky atmosphere. Fellow guests are respectful of the shared bathrooms, and the cleaning crew keeps everything spic and span. Ipads are available for use in the lobby, and there's a light menu available as well. Make sure to stop by the rooftop patio to catch a top view of the city. It's close enough to Times Square to visit, but far enough away to have a quiet rest. Great price, comfortable accommodations: I'll definitely stay here again.
