I am surprised we don't have more sleeping pod setups here in nz, I am not talking about the ones in the news today that were shoved into a room but a proper setup.

 

I used these when I was over in Japan and I really loved them, a communal area for cooking and separate shower facility.

 

Just surprised there are not more full setups like this around.

I could never get in and if I did get in I doubt that I would get out. That would be messy.

Well there's 4.4 million other Kiwis that it could appeal to..

 

Jucy has a pod hotel in Christchurch, I looked into it last week, seems reasonable at $35/night in a room of 8?

I am thin but getting from my chair into one of those would be a mission. I can see my myself launching head first to get out, missing the chair..... splat.

They are the only ones that I know of in nz that is why I am surprised there are not more.

So if we already have them what's the big stink about these ones - is it that they're not intended to be adhoc/holiday, and that they cost $200 a week?

Sounded like they were getting real close to breaching the hostel bylaws





Most problems are the result of previous solutions...

Presumably you would be careful not to eat pies and beans before checking into one of these.
