Funny how these hotel trends come and go. Just yesterday, we were philosophizing about the pluses and minuses of booking a hotel room with bunk beds, and then today comes an announcement from the guys at Out NYC about their new European hostel-inspiredSleep Share rooms. Can you guess what's inside the rooms? Bunk beds.

As of this week, the hotel has now made these rooms available as an alternative to the regular Deluxe, Deluxe Double and suite options. If you remember, one of the hotel's basic credos is for guests to stay, play, eat and chill. And there's no better way to accomplish that than a hostel-style shared room full of (hopefully, friendly) strangers.

The other obvious incentive, is, of course, the price.

When we first reported about the opening of NYC's second Pod Hotel, we were mostly excited about the fact that all the rooms would have their own private bathrooms. Same tiny capsule rooms as ever, but this time, no shared bathrooms. Phew!

Yesterday, the NY Times decided to pick up on the trend of "tiny but luxurious" hotels, focusing mainly on the new Pod39 and its abundance of communal space, both in the lobby and up on the colonnaded roof. But what caught our eye was a quote from Pod Managing Director David Bernstein, confirming that what guests love about the compact rooms isn't just the size: it's actually the bunk beds.

Go figure. People show up in NYC and pay $150-$200, only to pretend it's sleepaway camp all over again!
