Remember when you were a kid and your parents let you and your siblings camp out in the living room?

A new budget hotel in Berlin, Germany takes this notion to the extreme.

At the Hut Palace, guests can sleep in campers located inside a former vacuum-cleaner factory, reports Inhabitat.

Huttenpalast (the hotel’s name in German) was conceived and constructed by local artists.

For 30 euros (roughly $42) per night, vacationers get a funky-cute room, as well as access to a café and a sunny interior courtyard.

According to the hotel's website, the camping experience is meant to reflect "schrebergartengluck"—a German word used to describe "the joy of spending some time in a small garden plot in the middle of many other small garden plots."

This locale continues a recent run of odd vacation accommodations. See this Hobbit hostel. Or this jumbo jet hotel.
