We stayed at Pod 39 just eight days after their reopening in July 2021 and I was pleasantly surprised – it was actually bigger than I was expecting! Just enough room for two people. We were offered an upgrade to a queen bed on arrival but stuck with the bunks because my preteen son was looking forward to it. Not sure I would do that again. The top bunk had a thick mattress but the bottom left a lot to be desired. The beds were just mattresses on wooden platforms and the pillows were quite uncomfortable. For one night it was tolerable. The metal ladder was a bit scary to navigate and rough on bare feet. Soundproof rooms? Not quite. We heard people talking loudly in the hallway at 2AM and clearly heard our neighbor opening and then slamming their safe early in the morning. Street noises were minimal, however (we were on the third floor). Also, someone had obviously been smoking in the room. One tiny window in the corner looked out onto other windows. The A/C was quite effective and I actually had to put on socks and raise the temperature during the night. The room and bathroom were well laid out and made excellent use of space. The location couldn’t be beat: just three blocks from Grand Central and an easy walk, even with backpacks. In the morning we walked around the corner and grabbed bagels and coffee, then walked to the NY Public Library. I would totally stay here again, and have already recommended Pod 39 to several friends and coworkers.
