Here’s a new definition of ghetto fabulous. Have you ever fantasized about sleeping in a park like a stowaway with no running water, electricity or a bathroom? Well, if you’re a visitor to the Austrian city of Linz, your dreams can come true. You can spend a night (or more) at Dasparkhotel, where you’ll sleep in a recycled concrete cylinder set in the middle of a beautiful flora-filled park on the banks of the Danube river.

Each individual hotel room pipe comes with a bed, linens, a light and a side table as well as an eye-catching mural by local artist Andreas Strauss, who helped transform these concrete pods into functional accommodations. A restaurant and communal bathrooms are nearby.

And at what price to you get to say you slept in an abandoned drainpipe? Whatever you choose — it’s a “pay as you wish” policy.

Which begs the question: why aren’t they constantly occupied by bona fide stowaways?
