Well, looks like I'll have to go to Stockholm, then.

That's what I was going to say.

This looks like a good place to "crash" but I'd worry about crappy food and long lines for the bathrooms. Plus somehow they'll lose your luggage.

What an awsome idea! I found another picture here: http://www.webheimat.at/aktiv/Ausfluege-und-Reisen/Archiv-Ausfluege-und-Reisen/Stockholm-Boeing-747/Boeing-747-Hotel-2_high.jpg

It's a bit cramped..not too unsimilar to the Cabinn rooms

If I go, do I have to shop at Ikea and listen to Abba?

Don't worry, nax. They'll let you listen to Ace of Base or Aeon if you wish.

IKEA shopping, however, is compulsory.

Why do I have a sudden creepy feeling that there's a whole story waiting to be told in this picture?

I mean, it's not that kinda Hostel, is it?
