Belgium-based Sleeping Around has turned shipping containers into a temporary hotel that pops up at a different location for each guest.

The metal containers have been transformed into a fashionably-designed hotel space using sustainably-resourced materials, with a bathroom and space for dining.

After confirming their stay, they are alerted to the location of the hotel via GPS directions.
