Jumbo jet undergoes €2million transformation to become a hostel

jumbo hostel4

(From Daily Mail) An aeroplane might not be the first place you think of when looking for a good night’s rest but this jumbo jet-turned-hostel is an aircraft that you can finally sleep on.

Located just outside of Stockholm-Arlanda Airport, Sweden, this former Boeing 457 has swapped engines for bedrooms to offer visitors a unique overnight stay they will never forget.

The brainchild of barmy businessman, Oscar Dios, the entrepreneur spent over £1.5million (€2million) over six months to transform the huge plane into the aptly named Jumbo Stay Hotel.

After stripping the plane of its 450 chairs, the former Pan-Am aircraft now boasts 33 different rooms as well as a luxury suite for those who want to make their stay even more memorable.

For around £320 (€400) guests can take in the stunning, panoramic views of the runway from the cosy converted cockpit as well as enjoy the privacy of their own en-suite bathroom.

But that isn’t all, visitors can also kick back in the communal lounge in restored arm chairs or sip from martini glasses in the comfortable on board bar.
