Experience Galaxy Pod Hostel in Reykjavik
Pod hostels are quite a new addition to the accommodation world, but they are becoming very popular with travelers. When I found one in Reykjavik, I knew I had to use this excuse to try it out. I wasn't disappointed either! We booked a double bed pod, which was very roomy and we didn't feel claustrophobic. The pods themselves were very high tech, and it really did feel like you were staying on a spacecraft which was very fun! There are lockers provided for your things, or you can lock them in your pod too, which only you can open with a swipe of your card. There's even a virtual reality room with a lot of games which I'd definitely recommend trying if you haven't given VR a go yet. The shower and toilet facilities are shared, but they're separate for men and women, and are very private so it doesn't feel like you're sharing. And of course there's a kitchen for you to use, and you can also purchase breakfast from them too. In terms of location, it's about a 25 minute walk to the centre, and is located on one of the main roads in and out of the city so it's easy to find. This was a really fun experience overall, and something everyone should try at least once!
