Sleep in a Pod at These Boutique Hostels

These three properties are changing the way budget travelers say goodnight.

The newest sensation for frugal travelers, the boutique pod hostel, is popping up across the globe. It attracts those looking for luxury accommodations at a budget-friendly price, with sleeping pods that offer more privacy than ever before.

Singapore's Wink Hostel was the first to debut sleeping pods. Its stylish set-up features colorful LED lighting, sound-resistant walls, orthopedic mattresses and ports for charging your electronics. Ladies-only dorms are available, as are couples' pods that include a queen-sized bed. 

Also in Singapore, The Pod boutique capsule hostel is a chic space full of free amenities and numerous room types, such as front- and side-entry pods, queen- and single-pod suites and male- and female-only pods. 

The world's most futuristic pods can be found at Reykjavik's Galaxy Pod Hostel, with space-pod beds made with memory-foam mattresses.
