Britain’s first pod hotel has opened in London Bridge – costing from just £19 a night.
St Christopher’s Inn at the Village is the first hostel in the UK to offer the capsule bedrooms.
The property has 26 of the bedrooms, all stacked on top of each other.
While the rooms are tiny, they come with clean bedding, a black-out blind instead of a door at the entrance, a reading light and complimentary earplugs.
There are also plugs and USB ports, as well as free wifi, for any guests who want to play on their phones or laptops before bed.
If booked directly with the hotel, guests also get breakfast.
This includes a continental style buffet with ham, cheese, fruit, cereals, toast, tea and coffee.
The reception is open 24 hours and guests can retire to their pods at any time of night or day.
For an extra cost, it is also possible to rent a locker to store personal items, as well as towels, hairdryers and adapter plugs.
The Village London Bridge still has the traditional dormitory rooms and double bedrooms, for those who fancy a regular hostel stay.
While the pods are tiny – tall enough to sit up in – the rock bottom prices are sure to attract plenty of customers.
Beds cost from £19 in low season and from £34 in high season.
That’s a steal when you are walking distance from the London Eye, Tower Bridge, Borough Market and the London Dungeon.
