Liked: The main advantage of the hostel was that it was very convenient for the airport. It does have a novelty factor about it too. There is a cool swing made from a Boeing 747 tyre outside. Staff are helpful and the showers, although small, are good.

Disliked: The four bed dorm room is tiny (I was lucky enough to have it to myself). There are no real facilities - only a microwave - and no where to go either. There is no atmosphere and the place is more like a budget hotel than a hostel.

Liked: The location is close to the airport, very easy to get to the hostel by a free bus, the beds are welcoming and nice to have a nap between the flights. The breakfast is also wonderful, a buffet which is a valus for money, less expensive than it could be in restaurants in the airport.

Disliked: No safes in the rooms so it's good to have a trustworthy neighbour.

Liked: The uniqueness of the place and the fact they have kept at lot of the inside original details like the overhead lockers.

Disliked: The toilets and showers where very small and cramped. Also the fact everyone has to take their shoes off!! Don't see the point of that

Liked: Roligt och annorlunda, förvånansvärt stora rum . Möjlighet att sitta och fika på vingen var ett väldigt häftigt sätt att börja semesterresan. Fint med många fönster. Bra mörkläggningsgardin. Sköna sängar. Bra att det fanns frukost redan kl 5.

Disliked: Det var mycket blött på golven i toa/duschar. Kräver mer tillsyn av personalen då folk ofta inte torkar upp efter sig. Uppmaningen att torka med sin egen handduk är inte så bra - man vill gärna ha med sig handduken ut ur duschen för att svepa in sig i. Det borde finnas något annat att torka med.

Liked: It is literally right next to Arlanda airport. Mic you have an early flight, I definetly suggest staying here. Plus, it's fun sleeping in a plane. Well, a plane with beds rather than horrible seats.

Disliked: Marina left no negative feedback.

Liked: The hostel is a freaking 747. Showing up at night walking up the path to this jumbo jet was a pretty cool feeling.

Disliked: Not many people hanging out. In fact I was the ONLY one at the bar/common room for hours. Seems like it's more business (e.g. early flight the next day) than a place to chill and shoot the shit.

Liked: Hostel was near to the airport - there is a shuttlebus that comes every 15-ish minutes that will ferry you between the hostel and Arlanda terminals. FYI, this bus is free. It was inside a plane, so that provided the main attraction. Extremely useful for early-morning flights.

Disliked: Rooms were very small, but this would be expected, considering that the plane isn't massive. Small rooms meant not much space for luggage storage.

Liked: I have forgot my watch in one of the bathrooms and have lost any hope to find it; however, the staff has gone an extra mile and followed up on this matter. They have located my watch and offered to send it to me. I was truly touched by the good will and honest character of the Jumbo Stay staff.

Liked: Very practical in case you have an early flight or a late arrival

Disliked: Not obvious and easy to get there from the terminal. It was not clear I had to take the bus n°14 nor where tit was to find the n°14... n°17 seems also to stop at Jumbo sometimes... A bit chaotic. Suggesting it is 15mn walk by foot but without providing a map on how to go is not reasonable... It's dangerous as well

Disliked: Food and drinks are quite expensive. It seemed most people who stay there are 30-40years old, so don't expect to meet the average backpacker there.
