Interesting space, but needs some life
A very unique place to stay, but can also be a bit disorienting and strange. The capsules are a great idea because you can have privacy and air/temperature control. Their kitchen can be bigger, considering the number of capsules and overall dark atmosphere is a bit creepy - perhaps some TV's would help. The owners are super nice, but there really is not much to do in this town.

Indoor camping
Great location, perfect for short time stay. Sitting area is very nice and everything is very clean. This is like camping indoor so you can pretty much hear everthing but that was fine by me. The capsule is nice and clean, I got a very good night sleep.
