There is a co living start up specific to Los Angeles called PodShare that is also a membership-based company that allows you to live and work at any of their locations. The catch here is that the only doors in these spaces are for the showers and toilets. The idea behind that is the belief that a door may block out the opportunity of social interaction, networking, and community. Funnily enough, the inspiration for this open door concept came from MTV’s The Real World, according to an article posted by Skift.
Dare I mention that hostels may even be on the rise for business travel? The word hostelalone probably brings quite a distaste to the taste buds of many seasoned road warriors, for completely understandable reasons.

Yes, maybe this is the case for backpackers looking for a nothing more than a bed to sleep in while they venture the world on what little amount of their savings is left.
