Sleeping in a Capsule with Rainbow lights in LONDON

Throughout London you'll see quite a few St. Christopher's Inn locations- there are eight in London alone.  The hostel/hotel chain has many locations, and not just in the UK.  I actually stayed at another location in Berlin, Germany two years ago near the beginning of my travels and loved it.  They have four guiding principles [...]

Review: 5footway.inn Project Boat Quay Singapore

When I was researching places to stay in Singapore, I found 5footway.inn via Facebook, surprisingly, and was intrigued by the cutesy name and marketing.  I thought to myself, "Five feet...that's about my size.  That's all I need.  Perfect!"  Just a little space to call my own for a few days while I explore this new [...]
