I have been paying attention to this place since its opening, dreaming that one day I could stay. Now the moment arrived and I was very much looking forward to it.
My flight was delayed and I didn't arrive at the place until 2am in the morning. Yes, the free shuttle bus from the terminal is very convenient and when you get off the bus, people are kind of watching you in a jealous way - look, this guy is staying in this cool place compared to our boring Raddisson!
Check in was okay smooth, maybe the reception wasn't too keen to greet someone at 2am. He provided me a wrong door card, which I inserted into the wrong room...ooops, sorry people sleeping in that room!
Get into my room, clean, okay size and comfortable bed. Toilet and shower are clean I have to admit, definitely above normal hostel standard. After 7 hours sleep, breakfast time, which was served in the front of the aircraft. Surely the guys serving the food were not too keen to asking whether you had a good sleep or how you liked this place. At that moment I found how poor customer services are at Jumbostay. After breakfast, I went to the top decker to see the common room and cockpit, which was locked. No material decoration/contents inside. When I walked down, the lady at the reception stared at me angrily, implying 'what are you doing upstairs'. Wasn't very happy about what she showed to me: I am paying 100pounds a night to realize my dream but you treat aviation fans like that? No way I will come back, or at least until it's services show dramatic improvements. Later I stayed two nights at other Stockholm places and the reception are very welcoming!
So in conclusion, close to airport with convenient shuttle connection. Not cheap. Great idea and very clean inside. Pooooor customer services!!!
