Jumbo Hostel – A Jet Converted to a Hostel

If you can’t take the noxious fumes of a city after alighting from a plane, stay in the plane instead! The Stockholm-Arlanda airport will now feature a hostel on wings of sort. The hostel is nothing but a Boeing 747 from 1976 which has about 25 rooms after being converted into a grounded hostel. This apparently is also the world’s first hostel and comes with original engines that mesmerize any guest.

The flight deck now doubles up as a private suite and there also is a lounge and cafe for those who need some kind of refreshments and relaxation. A night ion the hostel is not exactly like staying in a YMCA funded hostel. A night in the Jumbo Hostel will set you back by $170.

The Jumbo Hostel seems like the right place for those who want to show off that they ‘lived’ in a jet and not in a hotel when they were in Stockholm, Sweden.
