Capsule Apartments In Beijing Available For As Little As $16 Per Night

Shared capsule apartments have become a trend in China, particularly in Beijing. Usually a Japanese domain, shared capsule apartments are now showing up in China.  The China Daily website notes that a landlord in Beijing who manages one is offering a one night's stay inside the residence for around 16 dollars. 

While that cost is certainly low, the stipulation is that renters would have to share the space with up to 17 other individuals. The entire apartment encompasses approximately 1,700 square feet accommodating multiple people, however each built-in sleeping cubbie is extremely compact.

Reportedly this apartment may have to be shut down because the proper operational license was not obtained. While these small residences or micro-apartments seem to be increasing in popularity in high density areas like New York and China, the Japanese have long embraced the idea.

Simple economics make it hard to beat their cheap prices when compared to standard-sized apartments and hotels.
