    "Hotel was amazing! Stayed for a long weekend of sight seeing and shopping and found the Pod's location fantastic as it's sooo close to everything we needed. Staff were friendly and helpful. Rooms were clean and warm, with safe, hairdryer and toiletries. We had a double bunk pod room with a shared bathroom. Our room was the closest room to the bathroom which was fab because it only to took us a second to get to it once we saw the 'vacant' light on. Bathroom was very clean too. Can't fault the Pod at all and my friend is going to stay there again in April when she goes with her family. "

Great location, clean, tidy and funky. "
    "When entering the hotel, it gives the impression of a 'young, hip hotel', with music playing, and a few flat screen tv's hung around, with some trendy furniture. The staff at reception did there job well enough. The room we got was a double, with its own shower/toilet. Very,very compact, but who cares? The room was very clean, and it felt safe. Didnt feel like we were gonna get murdered in our sleep! Bars and restaurants were right along side the hotel, and the subway was not even a 2 minute walk away. Bit pricey for what it was, but this is New York. Would stay here again. "
    The best thing about The Pod Hotel was:"Location "
    The worst thing about The Pod Hotel was: "Tiny rooms, but not really a problem "

    "You can't go too far wrong with The Pod Hotel. If you are looking for somewhere in New York that is smart & modern (and very affordable), this is a great choice. The hotel staff are very friendly and helpful. The rooms are basic, and the bunk-bed twin we stayed in didn't leave much room in between the sink and the beds. However, it's cleaned everyday, you only really spend the night sleeping in it, and you are getting a good deal. Our room came with a shared bathroom. Again, this was fine because there are several on each floor (all cleaned daily). Nearby subway stations, and easy walking to several key mid-town locations like Central Park. a couple of good diners further up 2nd Avenue as well! Both myself and my brother would happily stay there again. "
    The best thing about The Pod Hotel was:"Value for money "
    The worst thing about The Pod Hotel was: "Slow lifts (just nit-picking really) "

    "The rooms were very neat, although small but functional for one or two night stay(not more than that). The down side the porter service was terrible. Yes I mean terrible and for that reason alone I will not recommend it to my friends. My advise would be for them to teach there porters about customer service the porter is the first and the last point of call...... I rest my case you have just lost one customer....."
