New Zealand’s first-ever “micro-accommodation” concept has been launched by tourism operator Jucy and opens to the public 1 November.
Christchurch, New Zealand’s second-largest city, is home to the pod-style hostels, which see 271 beds just minutes from the international airport. The accommodation is low cost and short-stay, which makes it a perfect option between international flights or after long-haul journeys.
The self-contained accommodation capsules or pods feature beds, storage lockers a power supply and WiFi connectivity. Jucy Snooze utilises technology to allow customers to self-check in and out – either by smartphone or a specially designed kiosk avoiding queues.
The Jucy Snooze pod prices start at $39, with the pricing model designed to offer flexibility to accommodate tourists wanting to stay overnight, or a reduced rate for those who just want a few hours’ sleep between connecting flights.
Jucy, also a popular car and caravan rental company, will begin construction shortly on a five-story Jucy Snooze in Queenstown opening in June 2017.
