What would you pay to sleep in a sewage pipe?

Das Park Hotel might be Germany's answer to Japan’s capsule hotels. Only a lot more... waste-full. This super minimalist “hotel” features teeny tiny rooms in former sewage pipes (don’t worry, they’re clean!), so all your pipe dreams can finally come true.

Artist Andreas Strauss transformed concrete drain pipes into individual sleeping spaces, effectively creating a simple, eco-friendly, and practical campsite.

Campsite? Yeah, you'll have to trek over to the separate bathrooms, cafeteria, and bar. The upside? Rooms cost whatever the hell you feel like paying: just leave what you feel's fair in your room before you leave.

Das Park Hotel

Rooms have a diameter of about 6.5ft, a small window so it feels less crypt-like, a double-bed, storage space, and a small charging station for your electronics. Fun fact: each room weighs around nine tons, so don't worry about rolling away in the night.
