Ikea Hostel

This month, two Ikea warehouses in Oslo, Norway will let shoppers sleep overnight.
"It will be like an alternative hostel", said company spokesman Frode Ullebust.

Their Billy Bookcases rock! For all the mumbling about their stuff being short-lived and disposable I must say, I've had my four Billy Bookcases for about seven years now - all burdened with a VERY full load of books - and despite all sorts of moves and rough handling they're still holding up great. I only wish I had room in my apt for more!

That hostel sounds oddly neat, too - free take-homes and tasty Ikea food! Hot diggedy. The one thing I have yet to see anything about, though, is how people go about reserving one of these rooms - they get 900,000 visitors during the summer alone and there are only 30 beds in this hostel? Do they have a waiting list or something? If they do I'd imagine it's probably already booked solid through the end of decade ...

The walls and all the furniture are probably made out of particleboard and medium density fibreboard... Looks OK when new but sags and falls apart after a few years.

Their stuff has a lifespan of a typical college education. This has some merit, as one doesn't feel too bad about hauling it to the dumpster when packing up after graduating.

I didn't even know that futon is typical Scandinavian, maybe it is.

I guess it's standard Ikea beds, but you'll probably be a couple of hours short on sleep, just like with their screws. :)
