I am a fire safety compliance (building) officer within the City of Sydney.We recently have seen the opening of Australia's first "Capsule Hotel" accommodation. Capsule hotels (google search for more information)  use small chamber like self contained units to provide basic overnight accommodation for guests (rather than standard beds-bunk or otherwise)


Given theses units are new we do not have any fire safety data- relative incidents;comparison code compliance;detailed fire safety assessments.I am concerned about their use and the level of fire prevention/protection currently provided.


I would welcome any feedback on any opinion/experiences with capsule style accommodation.
