If European hostels ever received a modular makeover they’d probably look something like the St. Petersburg-based Inbox Capsule Hotel. Borrowing its design from Japan, the InBox features cellular capsules for lodging in place of westernized private rooms, encouraging guests to intermingle with one another.
In addition to the dormitory-style SmartBox option, InBox also offers Monobox, a private single room with a half bathroom, or DoubleBox, a private double room with a full bath. There’s a guest kitchen on site as well, shoe lockers, library, luggage room to store any addition items, and free Wi-Fi so travelers can stay in touch or continue to plan out their trip. And for those without a private bathroom, Inbox provides complimentary toiletries and a large shared bathroom with multiple showers. And not to worry, if you’re feeling tired or anti-social simply close the blinds to your module and fall asleep on their memory foam mattresses. Prices vary based on availability and month. [Purchase]
