Stayed for 6 nights. Basic accommodation but really everything you need except for a fridge and tea/coffee facilities. Location is brilliant as you can walk everywhere in Midtown Manhattan from there.

Great value for money and excellent location

We stayed for 10 nights at Pod 39. It was a great hotel, very clean and staff were friendly. The location was easy to find and it was easy to get to and from the main attractions in NYC. Grand Central Station was a five minute walk away and buses going up Fifth Avenue are close by as well. There are plenty of food options around the area. While there are no laundry facilities on site, we were able to use the wash and fold service two doors down for a very reasonable price. Overall, we had an extremely pleasant stay and would not hesitate recommending this hotel to others.

Fairly affordable hotel with small clean, rooms.

The room was small as expected but made good use of the space. Bathroom very nice and had a boutique feel to it despite its size. Air con / heating in the room too. Location good, very close to a share bike station & not too far from the subway.

Compact but perfect.

Pros: Tidy, well thought out rooms, nice character/feel of the place, and the relatively close location to Central Station which can then get you anywhere.
Location: An easy walk to Grand Central station, Time Square, etc. Moderate walk to Central Park, if walking is not your thing then the subway works well.
The location is ideal for walking to major tourist spots, yet not too close as to be expensive. The overall feel of the place is "Upmarket backpackers", and I say that in a positive way. The rooms are very small, but have everything you need, having said that we really only used the room for sleeping, showering etc. There is very little privacy, frosted glass between toilet shower area and the bed, so it would pay to room with someone you know. Overall a very positive experience.
