Capsule hotels are not Japanese anymore

I'm on a trip within Spain and, while I was in Ibiza, I saw at Booking a "capsule model option" for Valencia. I did it and it was really cool. Then I booked for Madrid for another capsule, which is pic related.

A 20-capsuled dorm is where I am now in pic. That's not a pseudo-capsile made of wood I stayed other two times. The capsule have their lights, their fans and thank kills several disadvantages of ordinary dorms: no smelling, no snorting, a lot of noise reduction...
This is probably a tendency for the future

      My experience with capsule hotels & noise has been different. I find that snoring sounds can travel throughout the capsule, even if the snoring is coming from several stalls away. Other noises that travel through capsules may include:
      >the sound of the capsule door locking mechanisms
      >the vibration of another guest's phone
      >people talking outside

      I haven't been to a capsule hotel in a long time, due to less-than-ideal experiences. My least favorite part of the experience has got to be the bathrooms. The toilets and showers are always a fricking mess. I'm financially comfortable enough to consistently afford real hotels now, so I don't think I will ever do this again.

      I always thought it was an Asian thing. I've stayed in a few in Taiwan, and I've heard of them existing in Thailand and Singapore. I'm only learning just now from you & OP that they exist in Europe at all.

      >you will live in the pod

      What's sad is that actual pod living is somehow more expensive, less private, and sometimes even less spacious than capsule hotels.

    I'd book one just to go see it and take a photo. Then I would go back to my giant 3 bedroom luxury Airbnb penthouse with a hot tub and laugh about it with my wife while we drank wine on the balcony.

    The only place I can think of that I wouldn't feel like cattle for sleeping in one of these would be an airport

      At incheon airport they have tiny hotel rooms they feel like capsules, but they have a bed and a shower and a sink. Then a shared bathroom with other guests. But they are all inside a walled area with no roof. It's really cozy but also kind of a strange set up. They seemed brand new at the time in 2021

    I understand the noise reduction thing but to be honest I've never actually had a problem with noise in hostels. Even people with alarms in the morning, it might wake me up but I just go back to sleep in 30 seconds, or I just wake up anyway.

      The noise is always people coming back late drunk and giggling loudly, turning all the lights on or shining their phone flashlights on you, the loud snorers, or the people who get up early to pack their suitcases instead of doing that at a normal goddamn hour, and everything had a plastic bag so you hear plastic rustling for an hour. The complete lack of respect or awareness of others is astounding

        I've only had this issue at 1 hostel in my life. Most people are considerate. I always take my shit outside of the room if I'm packing bags early in the morning.

    There are dozens of places to stay in Ibiza for $60 a night where you'd get a nice room and a private bathroom. How much are you saving by staying in a capsule?

      The capsule probable costs more
      You’re paying for the capsule factor

    they've been a thing everywhere for a while now
    its made worse that hostel bunks are starting to hit $60 a night now so every hostel is getting pods installed so they can cram as many people in as possible for more revenue

      Holy shit I never knew this existed. Why do they all look like leftovers from Disneyland's star war theme hotel?

        Probably because Disney ordered them from the same factory, although not likely via Alibaba.

    I love staying in these just because I love jerking off close to other people. Just imagening the guy next to me feeling the vibrations of my selflove session gets my engine purring.

      About the same as a hostel in most places. The biggest difference between a capsule hotel and a hostel is that no one can molest you in your sleep*. Another difference is that instead of sharing a room with 3-7 other people, you're sharing a hall with dozens of other people.

      >* assuming the capsule doors can lock; some capsule hotels don't have lockable doors due to local fire code regulations.

      There's a new one in Tallinn, Estonia too. Same exact plastic crap.

      How much per night in one of these pods?

      20-30 Eur per night depending on whether its peak season.

    I slept in the one at Zürich airport once, it's actually better than the Japanese once since it comes with a lockable door on your capsule, so no need to worry about melanin enriched individuals redistributing your stuff

    I wish we had this in the USA. Cheap accommodations, and it would make touring this country great.

    But instead we get browns...so it'll never work.

      This is how we should handle the homeless crisis in America...along with a kill switch in case the occupant is irredeemable.

    Looks like some cryo chamber ass shit. If that doesn’t scare you with some xenomorph vibes fine, but it’s intended for bug people and you gotta be short to enjoy it right

    I never understood the point of paying top prices for this shit when you can rent an airbnb or go to a much better hotel for around the same price ?

    There's one in my city and it's 220$ CAD a night, for this price you can go to a decent 4-star hotel and have a full room, bathroom, balcony to yourself with breakfast included and free coffee.

    People who actually accept and encourage this shit deserve to be sterilized.

      I've stayed in one in Da Nang, Vietnam for $11 CAD a night. But I mean an ok hotel with an ok washroom and maybe breakfast is often $25 in the same place so there's that.
