You could be just about anyone who is in need of a place to crash overnight, or if you need to get sufficient rest before catching the next flight. The Capsule Container Hotel is great for a short stay, and for those trendsetters who are willing to try something new which doesn’t cost a bomb while experiencing something which is completely different altogether.
