August 2012 — "I happened to be travelling to New York City alone and didn't want to waste a bunch of money on a large double room at one of the fancy hotels. I saw good rates on single rooms at this hotel and decided to check it out. I'm glad I did. Being past the age where I can stomach staying in a dorm-style room at a hostel, this place was the perfect compromise. The single rooms at the Pod 51 come without toilets or showers but have a sink. I was a little nervous about the shared bathroom but it was always clean and readily available (aside from super busy times at 9am) - Plus they have indicator lights in your room showing you which of the 4 bathrooms are available. Long story short, sharing a bathroom was not an issue at all. The room itself is great - small, but they make good use of the space. There's lots of storage under the bed and on the shelves and the room comes with an easy to use safe. My room was a corner room so I had two big windows that I kept open most of the time. The bed wasn't the most comfortable I've ever slept on but it wasn't awful. The common spaces at the hotel were awesome! The downstairs courtyard and the rooftop patio were fantastic places to chillax, although regrettably I didn't spend enough time on either. My only common space complaint would be that the hallways are too dark. All in all, a fabulous stay! I highly recommend it. "
