I got a mini-bunk room at Pod 39. The hotel is pretty stylish in it's own way. There is a bar in the lobby along with a row of Ipads for guests to use. The people at the front desk were pretty nice and helped us get in to the room and out to the airport efficiently.

The room was small. Very small. With a bunk bed, a desk, a chair, a safe, and one pole for hangar holding. There is also at little lamp and a double outlet at each bed. Liked that aspect. The whole experience felt kind of like a dorm room.

There is also a bathroom with sliding frosted glass windows, a very loud toilet, not much counter space (though didn't need really need the space), and a good size shower which took me a while to figure out how to maximize the hot water. The one thing I didn't care for were the sliding glass doors for the bathroom. The door is thin so you hear EVERYTHING going on in the bathroom. And I'm a person who is not that interested in hearing everything no matter how close I am to the person. Also there is a large door knob size hole in the sliding door that overlooks in the toilet when fully closed. I'm also not that interested in watching someone use the bathroom from the lower bunk bed.

The location of the hotel is great. Only a few minutes walk to Grand Central.

Overall, a good stay. Very affordable for what you get. And if you are a tourist and are out and about for most of the day anyway then it's perfectly fine. Unless you need the sense of privacy and a lot of counter space.

I've just returned from NYC having spent 4 nights at Pod39. If your budget is small but you do not want to compromise on location, cleanliness and service then this is the place for you.

I stayed in a one person Pod, and the room is exactly that- compact but fully functional, clean, efficient use of space, nice bathroom and the toiletries provided smell divine. Bed was comfortable and clean.

The roof top bar is a must visit with a gear view I'd the Empire State Building.

Only 3 blocks from grand central station and the Chrysler building and the new york library about 4 blocks from Times Square and 6 blocks from fifth avenue. Close proximity to subway lines which will take you to Brooklyn bridge, Wall Street and the staten Islam ferry ( and a ride to see the Statue of Liberty).

Friendly staff from the receptionist, bar staff and chambermaids.

This place exceeded my expectations.

The rooms in this place are compact but nice and new with sleek design. Really good use of space in the room where you have everything you need except an area to do cartwheels.
The staff aren't that friendly, but that is pretty standard for NYC.
Location is great if you are working in the area. Good area for tourists.
The taco place downstairs is expensive but gives the lobby area a good vibe. Would recommend for the price. It is more expensive than the really cheap options but it is very comfortable.

I spent four nights in NYC in a single room by myself. the room was a perfect size considering i hardly spent any time in it all and it was very clean. Location wise it was great, close to heaps of shops, cafes, bars and subways. The staff were amazing. The bar staff in the hotel lobby salvation taco were beautiful and helpful. They told me and showed me great places to eat and drink and introduced me to a lot of their friends. I also met a lot of other travellers at the lobby bar, some of them were by them selves and some in large groups. I didn't know what to expect traveling to NYC by myself but the people I met that were staying here at pod 39 and the friendly staff made my experience fantastic. I defiantly recommend staying here!

I'm remiss to write this because it is such a good value, I don't want this hotel to be booked the next time I am in NYC. The Pod rooms are small, but when you are travelling for business and on a budget, you don't need large hang outs. But small also does not mean uncomfortable. The bed and pillows were good. The shower was really nice, and the shampoo products smelled great. The towels could be better, but really, that's the only hole. Free wifi, A window that you could open for fresh air. Great neighborhood in Murray Hill.
