JUCY pods are a capsule-style accommodation available at JUCY Snooze in Christchurch and Queenstown. They are a New Zealand first! Traditionally found in Japan, we’ve brought this concept to NZ and JUCYfied it. Here are six reasons why you should sleep in a JUCY pod. Hint: They will change the way you think about budget accommodation!
1. CHEAPER THAN YOUR AVERAGE HOTEL
JUCY pods start at a mere $35 per night, heaps cheaper than you average hotel and with more features and privacy than a traditional backpackers dorm room. So you’ll save dollars for the rest of your adventure. Go explore my friends!
2. MORE PRIVACY THAN A DORM BUNK
Ever woken up in your dorm bunk with your mouth wide open, drool on your pillow, wishing you had at least some sort of curtain to cover your morning bird's nest look? Thankfully, the horror show is a thing of the past in a JUCY Pod! The Pod comes with a privacy blind so you can completely close yourself off; you even have a little mirror on the inside of your pod so you can sort out your 'do' after your sleep and emerge into the world looking fresh as a daisy.
3. SLEEP SOUNDLY
Feeling the zzzzzz’s taking over? This is when that privacy blind comes into its own! Unlike a traditional hostel dorm room, the Pod can be fully enclosed meaning no more 4 am wake up calls when a fellow roomie turns on the lights to find their toothbrush! Just pull your blind down to hide yourself from the rest of the world, turn off your inside pod light and nestle into your king single bed with your fluffy pillow and snuggle-worthy duvet and let undisturbed sleep come!
4. YOU’LL FEEL LIKE AN ASTRONAUT!
Ever wondered what it’s like to sleep in a space station? The uber-cool pods have a futuristic vibe and come complete with your very own control panel featuring temperature control, USB port and electric sockets to charge all your gadgets and devices. So let your inner space cadet free and fly to the moon... Or just, you know, take a nap.
5. YOU CAN BE A SOCIAL BUTTERFLY OR A WALLFLOWER
Whether you’re the class clown, naturally gregarious, the strong silent type or just fancy reading your book in peace you’ll find the right chill-out spot for you in Snooze. In Christchurch, the common area has social seating, hammocks for all that relaxing, a full kitchen with dining area and a travel desk for those of you that need help in planning where to go next. In Queenstown, there is a rooftop bar 'Miss Lucy's' where you can enjoy wood-fired pizzas and awesome views at the same time! Both locations have one thing in common - your pod is your sanctuary. Hook up your laptop, read a book or just have a little laydown, you’re then free to greet your fellow Pod roomies whenever you like!
