If you’ve got a penchant for the young, cheap and well endowed, check into the Pod Hotel – a mecca for passing gap year kids, foreign students and their enormous backpacks. Simple yet stylish, the accommodations pack as much of a punch in the limited amount of space (10-ish square meters) as possible, with fold away flat-screens, drawers tucked under beds and a WC light which glows, airplane like, when the shared bathrooms are free. Choose from classic bunks to queen sized doubles, or go for an ‘odd pod’ which include the four-sleeper ‘Double Double’, and the ‘Veranda Pod’ complete with mini terrace. Once you’re settled, head up to the rooftop garden to check out the view before meeting with the concierge to get hold of his daily ‘PodStops’, a round-up of the day’s top events. Also home to newly opened hotspot, the East Side Social Club restaurant.
