Each crew member also has a personal storage space. These bunks have reading lights and mirrors, provided with blankets and pillows. Stacked on one over another, the size of these beds differ for each airliner. On some planes, it is so low that people will have to duck to reach there. It is not even possible to stand up. One of the crew members was quoted to Daily Mail, "They are very small and very cramped and yes can be very claustrophobic. It’s not nice being in the tiny, confined space during severe turbulence, it can get very unnerving." So if you have been wondering how the crew manages to look all fresh despite such long flights, you know the secret space.
