We've heard of a man that gets to travel the world and live on a container ship. Now, get to sleep one in Vietnam. The CCASA Hostel Nha Trang opened in August and offers weary travelers a chic, rustic stay at their hostel with shipping containers as your room. CCASA shares that its name was derived from "casa" which means 'home,' with extra C that means 'container.'
In an interview with the Lonely Planet, architect and co-owner of CCASA, Tuan Anh, said, "The idea of Ccasa Hostel is to be a big family for all travellers around the world, so the common space area was increased to maximize person to person connection, while the sleep space was decreased to a minimum to small cabins where guests only sleep." He continued to say, "I think that the use of shipping containers is the most suitable for the sleep cabins."
The three containers are joined by air bridges and open spaces that lead to the kitchen. It has 43 beds in a total of 10 rooms with the design based on the idea of cabin beds on a luxury train.
CCASA's outdoor kitchen and dining area are quite ideal for people who want to have a BBQ party on the grounds. The kitchen also looks like a 'fancy coffee house, with utensils and appliances to cook delicious home meals.' They have a bar lounge on the rooftop for those seeking a chillaxing ambiance while gazing the starry night.
About 200 meters from the hostel, people can go to the beach to swim, walk or bike to the shore. If you want to visit around the city, there's a bus stop 100 meters away from it. In addition, explore Vietnam's culinary culture in the marketplace 500 meters from CCASA.
