Pod 51 has a great location and we had a great view from our room on the tenth floor. Our room was located at the back of the building, where we were not bothered by any street noise.

We stayed in a queen pod, which was bigger than expected. We had enough room for our (large) suitcases and plenty of storage space. The bathroom was tiny, but again, big enough for us and very efficiently furnished. Overall, the room had a modern and clean feel.

The only negative points for us were the poor wifi signal in our corner room and the lack of available elevators.

The hotel is very cute and clean. The hotel rooms are exactly shown how they are in the pictures (except for the room size). The size of the room didn't bother me even though I was with two other girls in the bunk bed room.

I think there were 4 bathrooms with showers that were shared with other guests on every floor. At first I thought that it was going to be a problem, but there was never a time where I had needed to wait. In your room there's a small light that shows who's in each bathroom, which was very convenient.

I also liked how the hotel offered free tours around the city (each day was a different place). I went on the Greenwich village/ High Line Park/ Washington Square tour. These tours also give you opportunities to talk with other guests in the hotels.

Great service; had a room with bathroom down the hall which was not as inconvienient as one might think. Only downside is that the wireless signal in the room (7th floor) was very weak and kept disconnecting; in this day and age simply not on. Great roof top garden.

The small size of the room is only a problem if you need space by the sink, which had about as much counter top as the bathroom of an airplane. Tip: Just a little down the street, next to the synagogue, is a pocket park with a waterfall. Open to the public, it is a peaceful, green spot to read or bring take-out food.

Excellent Value - I always request a double with a private bath. Think of it as a cabin on a cruise ship and you'll get the picture of the size of the rooms. Clean and neat. My fave, midtown location close to the subway and lots of restaurants nearby.

Room Tip: I ask for a high floor to stay above the traffic noise.
