Airplane converted to hostel at Stockholm airport


Travelers to Sweden’s Stockholm Arlanda Airport don’t have to venture too far to find a place to sleep. A converted Boeing 747-200 airplane now known as Jumbo Hostel has 25 rooms, 85 beds, and is a quick ten-minute walk from inside the airport.


Beds start at just under $40 per night in four-bed male or female dorm-style rooms or you can opt for a private room with twin bunk beds for around $135 per night, a private room with a double and a single bed for around $150 per night, or splurge for the Cockpit Suite at around $365, which includes two beds in the plane’s cockpit and a private bathroom with shower.


The hostel opened on January 15th and boasts flat panel TVs and free wireless internet access in all the rooms. I’d think it’d be pretty loud since it’s right by the airport, so if you’re a light sleeper this might not be the place for you. Oh, and if you don’t want to share a room with three strangers and a bathroom with who-knows-how-many other people.

Other than that, though, it might make for a fun place to stay in a pinch.
