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!

chow and kythera... hostels can be really nice and clean. Also depending on the number of people traveling with you, you can sometimes fill a room, It depends on the hostel, but some rooms have 2 beds, 4, or more. Most hostels also are not co-ed with rooms and all rooms have doors with key locks. Single women who travel also like hostels because you can make friends easily and have people to enjoy the city with.

Plus, I would rather have my own room...not sharing my room with 12 people I NEVER MET. Yeah, that looks reeeeeal safe to me.

Ya know, if you didn't keep saying "hostel" then maybe I might consider staying in one of those. Maybe it's because of that damn movie but I thought a hostel was something that wasn't very nice. Try calling it a mobile hotel. IMHO I would not stay in a airplane ever. How ridiculous. You can get a bed cheaper than you can get a plane ticket??!

Liz4aker Liz4aker 8 years isn't a cruise ship. It's a ferry boat. I've stayed there. It is actually half a hostel and half a hotel. The hotel part has private rooms and is much nicer while the hostel side is co-ed and has 12 bunk beds. It was a lot of fun, but I stayed during February so the river was frozen over and the boat didnt move.

Sorry, meant to say ... The plane idea may be cool but I think I'll stick with traditional.

I recently stayed at The Pod Hotel in NYC with it's flat screen per bunk which my friend though would be totally cool and it wasn't. The place was a jail cell ... so I really wouldn't want to try this. The plan idea may be cool but I think I'll stick with traditional.

It sounds really cool for a hostel, but I wouldn't stay there because it's more expensive than a hostel usually is.

I would stay there mainly because of the price.

This seems like the coolest thing ever! I would totally stay there, if only just to see what it's like. :D I've always wanted to try out a hostel anyway.
