Have you ever wondered what it would feel like to sleep under a bridge like a homeless person? Perhaps you should consider booking a room at the Fakktum Hotel. Thanks to Swedish agency Forsman and Bodenfors, you can book a space that might otherwise be occupied by a street dweller. It’s similar to booking a hotel really.

You pay money for your reservation like any other place, except the money goes to support the charity rather than run a hotel. You’re welcome to actually stay in the damp, open aired space you’ve reserved, but most often “guests” opt to not actually sleep on the streets. Although, I’m sure staying overnight in your reserved “room” would make a huge impact on you or the friend you buy the space for.
