    Holy crap! 350 SEK to stay? My how things have changed in the last decade…

    You can take a train ride for 30 minutes outside of NYC, and get a hotel room with a king-sized bed and breakfast for that…

    Technically being made from aluminium it wouldn’t have been rusting. Corroding would be a better term to use.

    I spent the first 30 minutes there hitting all of the buttons and levers :)

    Why are there only like three pictures of the rooms on the website?

    I can count to at least six photos of the rooms here: http://www.jumbohostel.com/DynPage.aspx?id=64667&mn1=5293&mn2=5303

    I saw this hostel during my visits to Sweden a couple of months ago. You can’t miss it if you are flying out of Arlanda…

    Without the context of the story, the picture included here would be a pretty frightening thought :)

    Beats the hostel in Ottawa I once stayed at that used to be a jail (although sleeping in a cell was cool).

    #6,
    there are jails turned into hostels in stockholm, too. or was that in göteborg?

    Nanuq: Stockholm has one of those too, at LÃ¥ngholmen :)

    It’s a shame that Arlanda is so far from Stockholm, it’d be great to stagger back from a night on the time to an airliner.

    Man oh man, I would LOVE to stay in this hostel. I would satisfy some of my general airplane lust. I haven’t had plans to go to Sweden, but now….hmmmm…
