There needs to be a gym and the no bathroom thing should be in bold letters instead of small

Pod 51 is located in a GREAT area! Close to many restaurants, the subway lines, and there's a CVS store right around the corner. My room was very clean and the cleaning staff was very friendly and always ready to help, if needed. The top deck is awesome! Great place to unwind in the evening with a great view! Highly

I have never stayed at a pod style hotel. My son had stayed at hostels in Europe and this was somewhat similar. We had the bunk room which was small but very clean and sufficient. We had a sink and enough room for our luggage. The bathroom was across the hall and never had a wait. The café for a coffee or breakfast was nice in the lobby and the roof top deck was excellent. We had no noise issues and the location was great.

I would have given this a lower rating, but the roof deck is so awesome that it went up. However, understanding that this hotel is in mid-Manhattan, the room was so tiny we could barely walk in it - and the bathroom was so small that my very tall husband couldn't fit in it! There were NO amenities. I've stayed in other hotels in midtown Manhattan at equivalent prices that were much better.

I liked the location. I felt safe in the city. The cafe next door was popular and the food was great. Odd sharing a bathroom but they were kept clean and available most of the time. Bunk beds were amazingly comfortable.

Liked: We appreciated the upgrade we received after noticing rusty water coming through our faucet. Fast elevators. Friendly housekeeping. Minimal impact with construction. Didn't like: Our first room was on 2nd floor, right above restaurant/bar. Music was on and too loud all evening. We were shocked to see rusty water to continue to pour through our room faucet. (So glad to change rooms). Lower bunk light bulb was out. Upper bunk guard rail not well connected to frame. We looked for room temperature control and never found a way to increase or lower heat. We would have liked a few more hooks on wall (for purses, coats, towels). Hooks near sink would be great for hand towels.
