While this vessel is permanently grounded, no more mile high jokes, the prospect of a hostel style stay in a Boeing 747 sparks intrigue. The creators of Jumbo Stay effectively killed two birds with one stone giving Arlanda airport’s 18 million annual travelers their only youth hostel option. Complete with 27 separate hostel quaters this jumbo set sleeps 76. Not only can you enjoy a night in the cockpit quarters, you can grab lunch at the cafe and enjoy a little aviation history at the in house museum. Jumbo Stay was the first of its kind and remains so a year and a half after breaking ground in early 2009. This unique venture now expanded, features new hotel style rooms and even suites complete private bath and sleeping quarters. Booking info here.
