This decommission jumbo jet is a 747-200 which was built in 1976. It was last operated in 2002 and was purchased in 2006 by the hostel's owner. It has 25 rooms with 85 beds in total. Most contain 3 bunk beds each except for the luxury suite in the cockpit.
This stylishly reappointed aircraft also has a cafe and observation deck on the left wing where you can actually walk along the wing for a scenic view in the spring time of the Arlanda, Sweden airport. They welcome people to stop by for coffee and a snack and a look around. It's easy to get to as well, being only a ten minute walk away from the terminals of the airport in Arlanda. You can save money and unnecessary pollution caused by taking a cab.
There are bathrooms with showers in the corridors that are bigger and more comfortable than your standard airplane bathroom. Of course, I'm not sure how you could get smaller or less comfortable! The luxury suite in the cockpit has it's own private facilities.
The prices at the hostel range from around $40 US for a dorm room (if you don't mind sharing) to around $380 for the luxury suite. These bargain basement prices even include breakfast in the morning with a heck of a view.
The cockpit offers a panoramic view of Arlanda where you can awaken to the sunbeams falling across your pillow and a beautiful view of the sky. They've left some of the controls in so that you can have an up close look at what pilots see and do as they are in control of this massive jet.
They take online reservations and have more information available at their site, Jumbo Hostel. This awesome hostel is reminiscent of others found by the staff here at Green UpGrader. Specifically a hotel made out of a drain pipe and a another made from a repurposed shipping container. These hotels definitely give people a glimpse at what can be done with "garbage" when viewed from another angle.
