Jumbo Hostel, Sweden
If you’re thinking about staying in a Swedish hostel, we’re pretty sure this next accommodation will take your fancy. Unless, of course, the last place you want to stay in after a long flight is another aeroplane! That’s because the Jumbo Hostel is actually a decommissioned 747 jumbo jet!
Built in 1976, the plane’s former airline went bankrupt in 2002. But in 2008 it was rescued, renamed Liv (after the owner’s daughter) and opened as a 25-room hostel. It has even had its cockpit converted into a luxury suite with a panoramic view of the Arlanda airport.
If this hotel doesn’t sweep you off your feet, we don’t know what will!
