hotelier michael bonner has implemented an unusual hospitality concept into reality, transforming a previously vacant warehouse in germany into a vintage faux-campsite. the 600 square-meter industrial space has been revamped into the basecamp bonn young hostel, a colorful indoor landscape playing host to 15 different restored caravans. each RV is thematically designed with familiar details, each adding to their charm and character: ‘hausboot’ has wooden oars and a life vest hung on its facade, appearing to be someone’s quirky floating residence, while ‘big ben’ accommodates a british flag and victorian-style seating outside. two historic U.S. airstreams — the iconic aluminum travelers — as well as two railway cars from deutsche bahn trains are furnished with retro accessories, and can shelter small student groups. guests to the hostel can vacation in one of the custom campers for as little as EUR 54 per night, with prices varying according to size and sleeping capacity. ideal for young adventurers, the eccentric habitat introduces atypical wit and style into a traditional lodging context.
