Boeing 747 Jet gets second life as the world’s first Jumbo Hostel
Day in and day out we hear reams and reams on innovative ways of recycling. In that respect, the world’s first Jumbo Hostel proves to be an epitome. A Boeing 747 jumbo jet, that was probably rendered inoperative, has been transformed to become an unique hostel accommodation. I mean the best use one can think for a retired airliner is to either scrap it away or, it was a product of stupendous engineering, stage it in a museum. But by converting this jumbo jet into a hostel, it serves the dual purpose of a significant landmark and tourist attraction at the Swedish Airport.
The hostel offers a variety of accommodation with excellent in-room amenities. The top of the heap is the Cockpit suite, a term that is self-exemplary of the experience. Then there are dormitory style rooms which accommodate 2-4 people. If you want some privacy for yourself or your family, you could go for the Private 1-2-3 rooms.
This Jumbo Jet has combined nuances of the original jet with luxury. Prices for Dorm bed start for as much $62/night with the Cockpit Suite going up to $515 night. I think just for the experience, even dorm beds are excellent for the start.
