4.8 Mediocre
Cons:The beds are very uncomfortable.
10.0 Excellent
Pros:Pretty much everything...loved the HDMI inputs on the wall, the awesome bathroom, the responsive AC, and of course, the staff.
Cons:Nothing not to like...this is basically a well-managed upscale hostel with superior private rooms. I would totally recommend some tweaks for the designers, mainly to install a shelf on the wall near the LCD screen to maximize vertical space. I would also suggest a water kettle as an optional in-room item as I travel with my own cup and tea and missed this feature.
10.0 Excellent
Pros:Perfect place to lay your head. Solo traveler also perfect. Didn’t need much room & conveniently in Manhattan. Walking distance to Time Square.
7.7 Good
Pros:The price is unbeatable and the hotel is simple, clean and centrally located. Remember, this is NYC!!! Unbelievably affordable to spend some time in the Big Apple! Perfect for a no-thrills solo traveler.
Cons:The USB port in the room didn't work so that I couldn't charge my phone. But it actually felt good to leave the phone in the hotel room and explore the neighborhood without social media. Quite the vacation and interesting to observe the people around you being glued to technology.
9.7 Excellent
Pros:The location and the value for money were unmatchable as far as I have been able to tell. The beds were comfortable and the staff were all exceedingly pleasant.
Cons:The bathroom isn’t really suited for families as there’s only a slim glass partition between you, so unless you’re creative you can hear and smell everything. The sink is also faulty and can disconnect easily. But there’s toilets downstairs and who even washes their hands anymore?
9.7 Excellent
Pros:Great location. Clean, stylish rooms with an efficient layout. Lovely bathroom. Yes, the rooms are small but I was expecting it and it was everything I needed. The staff is also very accommodating in keeping your luggage until you can check in, or holding your luggage if you have to check out before your flight leaves.
Cons:I wish it was just a couple of blocks west to be closer to the tourist attractions, but that’s only because it was 20 degrees during my stay in NYC and every block felt like a mile when you’re freezing!
10.0 Excellent
Pros:It has everything you could need in a compact package! Great location!
Cons:If it had a mini fridge and microwave it would be the best place to stay in NYC for the money!
10.0 Excellent
Pros:It was my first trip to New York. I was really impressed by the staffs and everyone at Pod 39. Very efficient and valuable hotel in New York. The location is very convenience. The hotel room was comfortable for one person or two people. I'm surprised of how clean the room was. The hotel maintain the cleanliness very well. Very reasonable prices.
Cons:I wish they had a small fridge.
7.4 Good
Pros:Sure the room was tight but the bed was comfortable and everything worked fine in the bathroom. The location is wonderful and so is the value. I will return.
Cons:Bed was very comfortable and the bathroom facilities very good

Service animals are welcome and there are accessible routes throughout the building.

  • The hotel offers free scheduled walking tours that allow guests to explore New York City like a local. Every Wednesday morning you can depart on foot to discover Central Park and the Upper West Side neighborhood, learning plenty of fascinating facts and stories along the way. Guests may also join any of the walking tours leaving from other Pod hotels around the city, which take in areas such as Chinatown, Soho, Greenwich Village, Brooklyn Heights and Midtown Manhattan.

  • The restaurant at this hotel is run by Al Pastor, which focuses on contemporary Mexican cuisine served in a relaxed atmosphere.
