Faktum has selected ten extraordinary locations where the homeless might spend the night and made it possible to book them the same way you would book a ‘normal’ hotel room. Customers can, for instance, book a spot under a bridge, in a derelict factory or on a public bench. Booking a room costs €10 a night. Whether or not people decide to really stay in their booked ‘room’ is up to them. Users can book a room for themselves or as a gift for somebody else, for example a friend on Facebook.
The revenues of Faktum Hotels are used to support the charity work of Faktum Magazine, that’s sold by people without a permanent home. The project is supported by media agency Forsman & Bodenfors, that has created a website for the campaign and a booking system.
