The MiNO Hostel Replaces Rooms With Fabric Pods

The MiNO Hostel in Migliarino, Italy will make you forget everything you ever thought you knew about hostels. This hostel was designed by Antonio Ravalli Architetti and houses residents in enclosed fabric pods.

Each pod has its own air conditioning unit, making the MiNO Hostel nicer than some hotels that I've stayed in. If you're ever backpacking through Europe, this is one hostel you've got to hit.

Implications - The MINO Hostel single-handedly repairs all the damage to the reputation of hostels caused by Eli Roth's 2005 horror classic, 'Hostel.' Hell, the MINO Hostel looks better than my first three apartments. Put it on your Eurotrip list if you have one, it's worth it.
