Sydney has its very first capsule hotel.
The accommodation, which is made up pods for rooms, originated in Japan where the need for cheap, overnight accommodation is required in the expensive, crowded city.
The Capsule Hotel in Sydney is located in the renovated Century Bar on George Street, and has rooms starting at $60 a night.
Business Insider thought we’d give it a try and see what the experience is like.
Here’s what we thought.
It seems pretty popular for a Wednesday night. The hotel it walking distance from Town Hall, Central and Museum stations
It's recently renovated and is fitted out with modern designs and furnishing. It was formerly the 'Century Bar'
And what you've all been waiting for -- the rooms! It's considered high-end budget style accommodation
Here's your first look inside. This is the Deluxe Capsule which goes for $70/ night. A Standard Capsule is $60/ night
Thank goodness for this SOS button. I was worried that there would be no back up plan if I couldn't open the door after closed shut
A decent-sized television screen. Even though these capsules seem sturdy I can hear people talking in the capsule underneath me
