Evaluations of Pod 51
I was suprised how clean a shared bathroom can look like. Well, regarding the price, let's say it's really ok, when you consider the location as well as the prices of other hotels in New York. But, in general, just for a bed with a shared bath around 100 USD net is really not cheap.
Concerning the breakfast i have to say, that there are indeed enough diners, coffee shops or whatever near the hotel. But in the hotel itself there is just no breakfast served. One point regarding the hotel description. The following features are listed in the description but not available, generally. Restaurant, Bar, Mini-Bar.
