We found it clean, in a convenient location, restaurants close by. Even if you have a room that shares a bathroom, there were plenty and we never had to wait, and best of all, they were clean and modern. The price was right and we would stay again. Loved the cafe outside, it was convenient for breakfast.
Really liked the ambiance, location is great, staff were all very helpful and friendly. Breakfast was great in the outdoor area, but a little slow. The bunkbed room is tiny (smaller than I expected), but it's fine (had to move luggage to open the door). Shared bathrooms weren't really an issue--they were fairly clean. I did run upstairs once when both on our floor were engaged, and then also checked out the roof deck.
My sister and I just returned from New York and stayed at the Pod Hotel.
We had bunk beds and used the shared bathrooms. Although we were somewhat hesitant before our arrival, we were very pleased with the hotel and even the bathroom situations. They were always very clean, great spa-type music piped through and all in all just fine.
We chose the Pod because of the affordable price, and the fact that we are almost never in the room while in New York.
We have stayed at many other hotels, (Waldorf, Hyatt, Marriott, etc.), and would stay there again, for sure.
