Often I find it difficult to know what to expect when I book a hostel. I’ve stayed in some busy grot holes where there is not even an hour of peace day or night so you’re unlikely to get any peace or privacy.

  
Well, it seems there is now an excellent solution – The Pod!

Pods are exactly the same idea as a hostel in that you pay for a ‘bed’ rather than a room, but in a very futuristic style, you can climb into your very own pod and shut the door, with your own power supply, TV, mirror etc. If you’re feeling sociable, open the door and say hi to your neighbours.

I think this is genius! It is really closing the gap between hostels and hotels, all with the benefits of a hostel which include – cheaper prices – making friends! It’s win win!

  
With thanks to Met A Space Pod hostel in Singapore for this fab property and photos. Go and check it out guys!

  1. These pods are similar to the ones in some Tokyo hotels – and serve the same sort of purpose. I’d get claustrophobia if I stayed in one – but for people who are not afraid of confined spaces they are a good cheap alternative!
