No, we didn't stay here, we stayed in Stockholm!
We were driving to the Airport and we saw it on the way. They certainly have some unusual Hostels in Sweden, and this was another one. Stay in a Jumbo Jet!
You can find out more on their website.
Jumbo Hostel is a Boeing 747-400 transformed into a hostel. It's location is about 15 minutes from Terminal 5, which makes it an excellent and very affordable place to sleep in if you have a short layover in Stockholm and/or don't feel like paying for a hotel in town.
All the rooms have a common shower in a corridor.
The prices start at 350 SEK for a bed in a dorm. Want to sleep in private quarters? Rent their cockpit suite! I'll find out more about it soon, as I plan to visit it :-)
Update Apr 2009: I went to see the hostel but unfortunately there was nobody who could let me in and take pix of the rooms or the suite. I also wanted to ask something I read about being able to walk and/or sit on the wings and have a cup of coffee, tea, coca cola, etc.
Unique Quality: Day rooms available between 8am and 4pm for 600 SEK and above. Also, very convenient if you don't want to or can't hit the town if your flight got canceled. Breakfast and wireless internet are included in the prices.
Directions: Between Radisson SAS Arlandia and Flight Academy, free transfer bus 14 from Alfa and Beta parking lots.
