 "Pod 51 Hotel"
Great place - clean, bright, functional, well priced. Friendly, welcoming staff. Excellent location. Complementary drink was a nice introduction to the stylish but reasonably priced 'partner' restaurant next door.
Negatives - noisy air-conditioning & from the communal areas - but bearable,

 "Once You're In"
Difficulty with them and my EasyToBook confirmed reservation. No rooms available, according to the older gentleman.
When I mentioned EasyToBook they became a little more active.
The romos are small, but very clean and the location of the hotel is attractive. They are upgrading the reception area (Aug 2014)

 "Perfect location on a budget"
This was our honeymoon stay and the hotel was what we needed. Really conveniently located to a metro line and easy to get to from JFK on the metro. It's a good budget hotel if you're not expecting luxury and frills. Very clean and comfortable though.

 "An average experience"
Rooms were really small but it is New York city why would you want to spend much time in your room anyways. We booked a room that include private bathroom which reminded me of being in an airplane lavarotory, difficult evening drying off in such a small space. Very noisy eventually purchsed some ear plugs. Advice of the conceige was good freindly but unfortunately you need to be cautious about purchasing some attractions at the hotel. Example the Grayline hop on/hop off (Red or Yellow double decker bus same owners we learned), their street vendors are rather rude if you did not purchase from them (no commission if you purchse from the hotel). They may not sell you a ticket with your hotel voucher. You have to first find the main office at time sq to redeem complete your purchase. The wifi in the rooms was weak no it was actually useless. Often had to go down to the lobby to get useful wifi service. Should be a standard amenities these days. The big plus is you are very close to some great restaurants along 2nd avenue. Abit of a walk to time square the theatre district etc. Stay away from time square for restaurants. Example we tried once the Marriot "the view revolving restaurant", it is expensive ($8 cover charge after 8p) and the food was rather dissappointing/below average for taste etc but the desserts were "to die for" and the view was good. However if I were there for business i think I would consider it if the wifi were upgraded and the noise issue addressed. Holiday the next time unlikely without some fixes.

 "cool digs"
I just finished staying at Pod 51(6/17-6/19). Cool Style. Staff was friendly & helpful. Low key. Rooms were on small side (bunk beds) yet comfortable & very clean. I had some worries about bathrooms being down the hall, yet that worry was misplaced as they were also very clean with little or no waiting to use. Close to everything we wanted to see & do.Certainly will consider staying there on future trips to NY. j. MacKenzie

 "Small"
The place is ok if ur just trying to sleep. The shower barely fits a 165 lb male in it, the bedroom is quite small too. But if u don't mind tiny than u will like. The heating and cooling is not thermostat controlled and it was hard maintaining a good temp.

 "Pod 51 a great place to stay"
Shared bathrooms very clean and rooms were very clean. Air conditioning was brilliant and fresh towels/sheets every day. The music being played around the hotel created a relaxing atmosphere. Just a warning about the shuttle to JFK, it took us nearly 2 hours to get to JFK so allow plenty of time even if the guy at the hotel says that it shouldn't take that long.

 "pod 51 hotel"
room was perfect size for what I needed, sleep.. wasn't too keen on the whole sharing of bathroom, but in the end didn't have any issues with this. location was ideal, located centrally with subway within walking distance. but for those wanting to walk, it's a great base.

 "Perfect holidays"
Located central - nice and quiet!Windows can be opened - bathrooms are big and always empty! Singleroom is small but modern and enough space for everything! Perfect rooftop!!!! Have been on the 7th floor - loved thos hotel. It was very clean and mordern, music everywhere, free showergel, kleenex, towels, bodylotion,... I heard nothing in the night and I always went to bed before midnight! One block to go (50 metres) at the corner is a perfect bakery and coffeeshop.

 "Ideal for solo"
This is my second time at this hotel. I think it is ideal for solo stay or a stay with friends. Shared bathrooms not a problem. Not sure to be a place for couples, since the beds are a little short and narrow. Will return for sure for my next solo stay in NYC.

 "Greet value for money, excellent location"
Really like the location, easy to get to by walking or tube.The place was tidy and clean. We chose a bulk bed which was very comfortable as I was screwed to the wall (so I did not feel my friend moving!)Also, we chose the room with no bathroom however, we had 4 bathrooms on our floor, we never had to queue and the bathrooms were always very clean. We had a sink in the room which was very good.The terrace at the top of the building was perfect for a drink before heading out for dinner! The place was very nice, everyone was very helpful and chilled.The carpet, although it looked new, was a bit smelly especially when the too was warm. The wi-fi was working on and off during peak times, but overall we were very happy with the choice.

 "Awesome hotel"
Great location. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The single room is small but it was well designed, it had everything I needed. The shared bathrooms were also very clean and private. I would definitely recommend this hotel. I had a great stay!

 "Great location with acceptable living conditions"
We stayed in the Pod 51 for two nights and with being on 51st street it was right in the middle of everything. Minutes away from the Rockefeller centre, radio city music hall, fifth avenue and Central Park ! Amazing location with many cute delis nearby! I would stay again, however very small rooms ( at least the bunk bed room)

 "Good quality for money, great location"
We had the bunk bedroom, very comfy beds and pillows. The room was last in the corridor so we had little noise during the night, still I would suggest hear buds for light sleeps. It was small but functional and although we were 2 girls on a shopping spree, we found that we could manage the space with our bags. The system of shared bathroom worked fine. At time it was busy but usually not more than 10 minutes wait and you can also try the other floors. The wifi was not really working in the room unfortunately, and although there are 2 lifts, I found that we had to wait often to get one whatever time of the day it was. The hotel organizes taxis to the airport at preferred rates. Hotel to JFK was 55 dollars including tax but excluding tip. Tipping is usually around 15%

 "Great price"
This hotel was located near the metro, great mony saver and very clean but you get what you pay for. No AC, so for summer but a good option, also very laud hallways. By 3 AM some guest are just getting back from a night out, was very laud that went right trough my walls of my room and I spelt maybe 3-4 hrs total that night, so bring ear'plugs. Same in the morning, if you are thinking to sleep in that morning, not a chance, you will hear the house keepers vacuuming and cleaning from your room. Over all is practical and clean. Very small rooms so I would say a place affordable where to crash at night and be near public transportation.
