Nap time in the cockpit of a 747

I’m having flashbacks to an era of travel that I never really got to experience. On-board lounges that were truly lounges and a social scene that is more party than utilitarian transportation.

Welcome to the Jumbo Stay hostel, a 747-200 that has been retrofit to provide accommodations for folks in Stockholm, Sweden. The property has been around for over two years now so I’m not entirely sure how I’ve never heard of it prior to now, but I’m pretty excited by it. The cockpit suite is particularly cool, though given my general budget I’m more likely to be relegated to a regular dorm bed.

Needless to say, on my next trip to Stockholm I know where I intend to sleep.
