– Steven! – Steven What you up to? – We’re taking a selfie? Nice hair. – Thanks. – Steven, you work way too much. – No I don’t. – So– – Wait, what are you doing? – We’re gonna go on vacation. – Yeah! – No I can’t! – We’re going, let’s go! – I gotta edit this video! – [Selorm] Whoo! (upbeat music) Let’s find some hotels, cmon, go go! Today we’re gonna try three different places to stay, at three different price points.

Isn’t that what you always say? – At three drastically different price points. – At three drastically different price points. So the first hotel we’re going to is called Podshare L.A. It’s kind of like a really cool version of a dormitory. – We’re going to a place where you share living spaces with each other? – Yeah, there’s like different pods. Everyone has their own pod and their own space. – Rule number one, (bell ringing) don’t talk to strangers. That’s the only rule you need. – That’s the only rule? – Yes. – I know you’re an introvert, I feel like this place is gonna open you up more. Strangers aren’t so bad.

– If somebody attacks us, can we please throw Kevin in front of them? So you gonna document me dying? – Someone’s gotta film it. Someone’s gotta film it. – Argh! (playful music) – My name’s Elvina, and this is Podshare, DTLA. We also have two other (bubbles popping) locations, Los Feliz and Hollywood and Vine. – How much is it per night? – There’s a $15 day pass, or you can do 24 hour pass, 50 bucks. So that means any location, you’re not just locked into DTLA. – What do you consider podule? Like, what do you call it? – Flexible term dormitory. I wanted to create co-living, meaning you face each other and

I wanted to create co-living, meaning you face each other and there’s social collisions, like the rate at which you bump into somebody, maybe you make eye contact, instead of knocking on a door, that’s less social collisions, than they would, like, seeing a name on a pod, and being like “Philipe!” Hi, Philipe! – I’m an extreme introvert, so the idea of social collisions is terrifying to me. – You can’t, like, close yourself out. This is collaborative living. So, we don’t wanna necessarily say you can’t live the pod life, so we’re looking at buildings where we can do private upstairs but always always dormitory style pods downstairs.

Welcome to Podshare, and we got mostly twin-size pods. We got queen size pods here, and then the third is the murphy pod, and it converts from bed to desk. – [Steven] So this is the pod? – Yeah. You get a twin-size memory foam mattress, outlets with USBs for your phone, obviously, Netflix, Hulu, Pandora. You plug in your headphones into the remote so that you don’t bother other people, when you watch your favorite shows.
