This Is What The Pyeongchang Olympic Village Looks Like From The Inside

A peek into the best of the best's off-hours digs.

While we've been watching all of the amazing Winter Olympics action onscreen over the past weeks, there's another side of the games we haven't seen as much: life in the Olympic Village.

And based on our Instagram sleuthing, life in the Olympic Village(s) looks a lot like a college dorm — if, ya know, you went to college with hundreds of international athletes.

There's this humongous and apparently climbable set of Olympic rings...

As well as fun mascots all over the place...

Plus a pretty simple, but homey setup:

Parts of the Olympic Village look downright campus-y, in a way...

Or just like one big awesome athlete sleepover...

...with some serious bathrobe game.

Athletes! They snack just like us!

They get their nails done, too!

The Olympic Village plaza even has a beauty salon...

...a giant cafeteria...

...which prepares a buffet that feeds up to15,000 people every day...

...and, of course, a fitness center:

(Apparently, even Olympians have to share the squat rack!)

Honestly, life in the Olympic Village looks pretty freakin' fun...

...and not entirely unlike college dorm life.

Except, well, for the fact that literally everyone is a world-class athlete.

In any case, here's hoping that everyone in the Olympic Village is enjoying that downtime...
