Communal Showers

The capsules have good sound isolation, powerful ventilation and small windows that can be blocked off by electric curtains. The spotlessly clean showers and toilets, which have green and red indicators to show if they are occupied, are for communal use.

Guests can opt for a cut-price option of two bunk-beds in a capsule for 2600 rubles ($85) or spend up to 4900 rubles for a more spacious room with television and two double beds. The hotel plans to offer 60 rooms in total.
