I wonder if these types of capsule apartments / hotels would work here - so long as they have a great exhaust fan, it might work here.

Here is a great way to create more space - drop down bed

There are legal restrictions in place, but it is very
hard to get them enforced. I.e.: for years, the
tenements on Third Street contained so many
bodies that people were sleeping in shifts and
living the waking hours of their lives on the sidewalks (and on my stoop!)
I and other neighbors kept trying to get some enforcement of
per square foot occupancy rules and all that, but we were not
successful for a number of reasons, mostly to do with
City apathy and tenant wiliness.
Nowadays, those buildings are toney condos,
most singly occupied. My, how things change
if you live long enuf!!

There is laws about this issue, and the formula is the number of people per square footage.
