A new type of hotel opened few years ago in Na Trang, 3 minutes from the beach, 3 kilometers from the city center, and 30 kilometers from Cam Ranh International Airport. More than a hotel, the Ccasa Hostel is a unique place built from recycled maritime containers that spent their first lives traveling around the world on various gargos and their second in a hotel. The place’s philosophy? “Everyone on the planet can be connected into one big family.”
Ccasa Hostel is a place with family values that welcomes visitors from all over the world. You are welcome here regardless of your country of origin, the language you speak, or the color of your skin. Tak Architect designed Ccasa to function as a family home with bedrooms and shared areas. Kitchen and living room, terrace roof used as a playroom with large hammocks aka nets to relax and gaze at the stars, washing area as toilet and bathrooms are shared. They reduced the amount of bed space available while increasing the amount of shared space available to increase guest interaction.
The hostel is divided into three functional blocks: the serving block, the sleeping block, and the washing block. The serving block is made of steel frames; the sleeping block is made of three old shipping containers painted in three different colors to represent the various types of bedrooms; and the washing one is made of white painted rustic bricks and concrete. These three blocks are linked by a shared common space as well as a traffic space that is open to the gardens. The “sleep” block is made up of old shipping containers that have been painted in three different colors based on the room type: rooms for four or six people, private rooms, or rooms for women only. A total 43 beds in 10 rooms. Each room is equipped with air conditioner, lockers, doors using keycard lock, landline telephone to contact hostel staff. Each bed is provided with a curtain, a lamp, and hooks for hanging clothes.
