    At $--- a night this hotel has the worst price value relationship of any hotel I have stayed in in NY. Shared bathroom and bunk beds. Tiny room. A bad joke.

    The location and the rooftop (which is actually quite smaller in person than the pictures suggest)

    The rooms were like dorm rooms, so tiny and they pushed the small bed up against the wall like a dorm. Very unappealing aesthetically. The bed was also so uncomfortable. The staff was also very dry and they made it so difficult to check in/out.

    Location is amazing - just 20 minutes to Times Square and 5th Ave. Staff was very friendly, rooms very clean and modern, as well as bathrooms. Me and my friend really enjoyed our stay at Pod 51. Best wishes from Lithuania.

    The AC in rooms could be a liitle bit quieter.

    The room was clean and the staff were very nice. The location was very central with lots of restaurants and shops around plus it was very easy to find.

    The room is small but it was perfect for a one or two night stay in a city where you won't be spending much time in the hotel room.

    Location was really good and hotel was clean and just perfect for our four days trip to New York!

    Employees could be nicer.
