South Africa New Eden Foundation Shipping Container Hostel | WebUrbanist

This hostel was built in South Africa in 1998 and uses a total of 40 second-hand shipping containers. It has accomodations for up to 120 tenants, a flat for a hostel manager and two small flats for hostel employees. While the surrounding community was originally against a “container squatter camp” being erected in the area, they eventually warmed to the idea after seeing that a shipping container building doesn’t have to look like a raw, industrial structure.
