Jumbo Hostel Makes Its Debut in Sweden

Would You Stay in a (Geek-ified) Jumbo Jet Hostel?

I've been to a few hostels in my day, but this one has to take the cake as the most unusual: The Jumbo Hostel is a gutted Boeing 747 that has been transformed into an inexpensive hotel for you adventurous travelers. Although the concept is cool, the best thing about staying at the Jumbo Hostel isn't that it's steps away from Stockholm's airport, or that you can get a room for as little as $43 dollars a night, it's that each cabin boasts free wireless Internet and a flat screen television, ensuring that you can check your emails and watch Swedish TV in style.


Worried about space? Since the entire plane has been gutted of all its cords and wires (something I'm always trying to do for myself), each room has 13-foot ceilings, and can sleep up to three people. I might just have to take a trip over to Stockholm myself and check it out — I'm always looking for an excuse to take a vacation!
