She called herself & # 39; Podestrian # 3668 & # 39; and said: & # 39; I managed to get this PodShare tattoo. It's kind of what I came to travel for. & # 39;

Daniel, known as & # 39; Podestrian # 1770 & # 39 ;, said in 2015: & # 39; Being in LA has always been a dream for me. And PodShare is completely part of it. I have certainly met friends for life. & # 39;

Others have posted similar videos of their tattoos.

But without curtains to close the beds, and the only doors to the bathroom, privacy can be a challenge. PodShare even pursues a policy without sex with a quiet time between 10 p.m. and 10 p.m.

Even visitors can wait up to 20 minutes in the lobby or be forced to buy a day pass for $ 15.

Despite that, a couple have managed to take their relationship to the next level, getting married a year after they met in the pods.

The happy couple even returned to the common room to take photos on their wedding day.

PodShare posted images on her Facebook page and wrote: & # 39; They met a year ago on that couch at PodShare Westwood and today they are married!

Beck, 34, said in 2016: & # 39; PodShare makes life more affordable because there is no deposit or costs for furniture and we ensure a flexible life.

& # 39; Podlife is the future for singles who don't want to settle down, but want to concentrate on their startups and want to experience something new.

She added: “Maybe they don't have two months' rent to put down or they don't have proof of income. Whether it is a divorce or their family put them out because they are gay or because they are in a different country or city. & # 39;

The company also offers a live work exchange.

Austiran Denise Pejic, 23, accepted that offer and has been living in a pod for more than a year. She said narrative: & # 39; It's like living a dream, living by the beach.

& # 39; If you want to be alone, you can, everyone respects that, but if you're bored, just ask people if they want to go sightseeing, you always have someone to do things with.

When she had sex with her partner Pejic, she added: & # 39; we can go to a semi-private room in Westwood. & # 39;

That is the PodShare with 85 beds in the neighborhood of UCLA, which has bunk beds with a lockable door.

Pejic added: & # 39; Maybe I'll just stay here forever. & # 39;
