The garden, the mix of modern and bohemian style.
Rate of 185.00 for bunk beds , the computer didn't show single room at 150.00. 35 .00 is valuable to a 76 yr old.
bardzo fajny hotel, nowoczesny design, taras na dachu, miła atmosfera very nice hotel, modern design, roof terrace, nice atmosphere
małe pokoje, może za małe small rooms, perhaps too small
I loved the location. I also really loved the alarm clock with the iPod dock, so I could play my own music.
No controls for the heating/cooling fan in my room, so I couldn't adjust it, and it didn't generate enough white noise to drown out the sound of everyone's doors shutting at all hours of the night. The rooms need more noise proofing and less space between the bottom of the door and the floor.
Comfortable and good location Ideal for a solo woman traveler Clean and safe
Bathrooms are too tiny Breakfast options are limited at the hotel
Good location, clean and quiet rooms. Lots of bars and restaurants nearby, and easy to get to & from JFK via the metro
Very expensive for what you get, but it IS Manhattan ...
Very clean, modern, good use of space in bedroom
Very noisey all night outside of hostel but to be expected at a hostel
The shared bathrooms are very clean and feel private. The wifi is strong and free.
It's hugely overpriced for what they offer. The aircon in our room sounded like construction work. The piped music in the corridors and bathrooms is awful.
We were pleasantly surprised as soon as we arrived at this hotel! Very nice decor and great atmosphere. Staff were very friendly and happy to help with any concerns. I was slightly worried about the shared bathroom however they were always very clean. Would definitely stay here again !
Rooms are small, but assuming you won't be spending mm much time there and will be out in the city, then it's just perfect. Bathrooms are shared, but there are 4 per floor, all are individual, have great showers, and are constantly cleaned. A panel in your room indicates when washrooms are avaialble, which is a handy addition. Location is superb, near the subway and loads of attractions (Rockefeller, Central Park, the Met) and lots of great restaurants. Staff were friendly and helpful. Overall, I would highly recommend to anyone who doesn't have kids and doesn't plan to spend much time in their hotel (I.e. by the pool). Great value.
Shared bathrooms may bother some, but as noted above, they are super clean and we never had to wait to get into one. Could be bad if the hotel is really busy.
Price was the only reason I picked the hotel.
I'm 5'6 and in my single/twin bed my head touched the wall and my feet touched the wall at the other end; I had to lay at an angle to sleep/fit on the bed. Linens worn and not too clean looking. The buttons on the phone for front desk etc... were not connected so you had to physically go down to ask a question. Super noisy outside my room in the street with bar/club.
The rooftop setting
the shared bathrooms/shower areas were not clean and the toilets were over flowing
Air conditioner too noisy
Superb, innovative engineering; housekeeping; rooftop deck
HD TV a bit fuzzy; no headboard for one person. Had to juryrig a backstop for pillows in order to read comfortably.
The room was spotless, cleaned everyday and new towels. Location was good, about twenty min walk to Times Square. Free guided tours were brilliant and a great surprise. We did the Brooklyn walk which was amazing and very informative. Very good value for money.
The room was very small, impossible to open my big suitcase on the floor, had to put on the bed, which was annoying. You'd also want to be very comfortable with your companion as there wasn't much privacy with the shower and toilet. The aircon was extremely loud also but did work well as it was very hot outside.
Location is perfect for walking into the heart of New York.
The rooms are small but are clean and fitted out with everything you need
location, felt safe throughout stay, room very clean
difficulty connecting to Wi-Fi - inconsistent
Location, easy access, friendly staff. Nice bagle /good coffee.
Sharing a shower/bathroom. I would not do this again.
Location of the Hotel.
Rooms are really small and we had to get ourself upgraded and pay a lot extra to have some breathing space in the room.
Great Location.Clean friendly staff Great Barton The roof
location and clean
really low internet connection in the room, very tiny room, very very tiny toilet, noise from outside.
- Excellent location - Clean
- Wi-Fi only works in lobby - Toilet clogs all the time - Noisy due to shared bathroom doors slamming at every hour of the night
The concept and presentation.
We that price, I still expect something for breakfast (hope I am not asking for too much!).
The subway was close by & easy to use; only 15-20min walk to Times Square. Safe area with lots of places to eat (highly recommend the Thai place next door!) & a handy drop off/deliver laundromat around the corner. Staff were friendly & mostly helpful. Reliable wifi. The bunk room is perfect for somewhere to sleep & the bathrooms were great - modern, clean & private. Rooms were small, but we were only there to sleep!
The a/c was noisy, but I was still thankful for it. The first couple nights I used ear plugs, but after that it didn't bother me!
I thought Pod 51 is one of the coolest places I have stayed at in New York, the staff and accommodation was excellent, comfortable, clean and modern. perfect location for exploring that amazing city. The restaurant and food were amazing but it was the roof top bar that stood out for me most.
Could probably do with a wifi connection at the roof top bar.
Great location, easy transport up and downtown
