On a disused runway at Arlanda Airport near Stockholm, in Sweden stands a decommissioned 747-200 jetliner. After having served numerous airline companies around the world, the airplane was towed into the tarmac in 2008 for one last time. The plane wasn’t refueled and no ground staff checked the tire pressure. Instead, it was placed on a concrete foundation and the landing gear was secured in two steel cradles, for the 747 was to serve the rest of its life as a hotel.

Jumbo Hostel can be reached by a 15-minute walk from the main terminal or via a five-minute shuttle bus. The hostel is equipped with a budget dormitory, a couple of twin and three-bed combo rooms with shared shower and toilet and a luxury suite in the converted cockpit that offered a panoramic view of the airport.
