Sleeping on a jet plane

A new hostel in a recycled Boeing 747 at the Stockholm Arlanda airport means you can enjoy all the fun of flying without leaving the ground. It the world’s first hostel housed in a Boeing 747.

The jumbo jet has been reconstructed and is now a 25-room boutique hotel—with substantial bathroom improvements, and even an elevator. There is a cafe, with a basic menu, or options for heating up your own food

Most of the rooms offer 3 bunk beds or you can spring for the cockpit suite- which includes access to the upper-deck lounge and a great view of all the airport action.

If this hostel is sucessful, the owner plans to open more Jumbo Hostels elsewhere in the world.
