Converted 747 Opens as Hostel in Stockholm

An entrepreneur in Stockholm has converted an old Singapore Airlines 747 into the Jumbo Hostel, a 25-room, 85-bed guesthouse located at Stockholm’s Arlanda Airport.  Dorm beds start at around $40, with the honeymoon suite in the cockpit going for about $400. One small drawback:  except for the honeymoon suite, everyone has to share the plane’s 9 bathrooms.

Oh – you can go visit even if you’re not staying there.

I’d like to beg our Swedish friend of the OTR Marcus to drag himself up there and take some pictures for us.
