8 Awesome Capsule Hostels that Change the Concept of Accommodation


A list of low-cost accommodation where you can safely stay!

What are capsule hostels?

These are normal hostels but with a slight difference. When you stay in a capsule hostel, instead of the typical bunk beds and twin beds, you will find modern and individual compartments that give you the privacy thart a normal dorm bed doesn't provide.

This new form of accommodation focuses on preserving the privacy of guests so that they feel protected from the eyes of others, and to enable them to control the lighting in their own space. This capsule-bed concept emerged in Japan and was intended to create a profitable accommodation business despite the properties being in high-cost locations. Small establishments could now receive more guests using this formula in which the 'room' is reduced to a cubicle, whilst keeping their prices affordable to customers!
