We spent 4 nights at Pod 51 last week. The location of this hotel is EXCELLENT. Very close to many very good restaurants and bars. Only 1 block from subway stations that can take you all over NYC. There was a small hiccup when we arrived and they could not find our reservation that was made by Expedia, but they quickly remedied that while I parked the car. No parking on site but there is a parking garage very close by just up the street that gives special rates to Pod 51. It cost us $30.00 per day to park. That is a good deal anywhere in midtown.
The room we had was a bunk bed room with shared bath. It was very clean. When you read other reviews that state the rooms are tiny, those reviews are correct. But it more than suited our needs and I would certainly return to that same type of room for the great price. The shared baths were constantly cleaned. They were always clean, and in the 4 days we stayed we never even had to wait a single minute to use one.
Others have stated in their reviews that the halls are noisy. I have to agree. That really is the only negative thing I have to say. Early morning wake ups from slamming doors can be bothersome but did detract from our enjoyment of our stay.
If you are looking at exploring NYC on a budget then Pod 51 is a good option.
