As those who travel often would attest, sleeping arrangements in other countries tend to differ dramatically. Whether it’s a villa over the water in Bora Bora or a tiny capsule hotel in Tokyo, hospitality comes in all sorts of shapes and sizes. Adding to this never-ending list of peculiar arrangements is a unique new abode in the Vietnamese city of Nha Trang that just became the first hostel built out of shipping containers. Dubbed Ccasa Hostel, this unusual travel stop is comprised of three recycled shipping containers modified into dormitory-style quarters and finished with a particularly modern aesthetic.

Finding that middle ground in that debate is TAK Architects, who transformed a stack of three shipping containers into a eclectic hostel in the Vietnamese ocean resort town of Nha Trang.
