It's a Bird, It's a Plane...It's a Hostel!

It's a Bird, It's a Plane...It's a Hostel!

We've always been captivated by the rare phenomenon of converting modes of transportation into more permanent dwellings (e.g. buses, train cars, boats being turned into homes). But we'd never heard of a plane being forever grounded for the purpose of housing anyone...

Let alone travelers to Stockholm, Sweden. But that's exactly what happened to Jumbo Hostel, a former Boeing 747. The hostel is located at the Arlanda Airport in Stockholm.

The Jumbo Hostel made this year's Metropolitan Home's Design 100 list, which praises the year's most notable designs.

The hostel includes 25 bedrooms (85 beds), and 9 bathrooms. Fittingly, the cockpit of the Jumbo Hostel is reserved for the honeymoon suite!

Has anyone had the delight of visiting the Jumbo Hostel? For more information, check out the Jumbo Hostel website here.
