A Hotel That Lets You Sleep Like a Homeless Person

homeless hotel

In order to raise awareness of the problem of homelessness in Gothenburg, Sweden, the magazine Faktum lets you reserve a spot where a homeless person might sleep:

Charging customers 100 Swedish krona per night (about $16), the hotel’s website guides visitors through the grim urban spots where homeless people find shelter, and invites them to enjoy the "accommodations."

"A highly prized location with a magnificent view of the city, Slottsskogen offers a living out of the ordinary," reads the description of one of the hotel’s "rooms," which, in this case, consists of a couple of park benches on a gloomy, abandoned terrace at the edge of the woods.  Other options include spots under a bridge, on the docks, in a derelict factory, or even on a stadium that "freezes in winter, turning into a cozy skating ring. [sic]"
