"Hands down craziest hostel I've ever stayed in, your sleeping in a plane converted into a hostel!!?? Great staff, clean rooms and bathrooms, actual tv and common areas. Decent FREE breakfasts. Only downside is your far from the city but a short bus ride and you will be there, however your close to the airport and if youre looking for food it's close by. Overall I would stay at this hostel again and would recommend it to anyone."
"Staying in a jumbo jet is not what one gets to do often. This property is ideal for a quick stay near Arlanda. There is a shuttle to/from all terminals of Arlanda (takes between 10-15 min depending on the terminal). I had booked a turbine room (under the wing) but opted to change to a room in the main body as it was cold and I did not fancy a walk to the restroom at night (in case nature called) through the cold. The room was small-ish but comfortable and the bathrooms were neat and clean and the wifi was good. You can have a small meal in the lobby and the breakfast is also enough to keep you going for a few hours. If you get the chance - stay here. Not often than you get a flat bed on a plane for so cheap :)”
