Airbnb are hosting one creepy competition for two lucky people to sleep over in ‘the world’s largest grave’. On Halloween.

The catacombs of Paris, which are home to over six million human remains, has had a section nicely revamped with a candlelit dining area and spacious double bed.

Along with the unique opportunity to sleep over in the supernatural suite, the prize includes the trip to and from Paris, breakfast and dinner, and even a private tour of the Catacombs themselves.

To enter, all you need to do is write a 100 word story about why you think you’ve got what it takes to stay in the ancient burial ground overnight.

Other requirements include the following: "Please respect the Catacombs as you would your own grave. Don't forget your toothbrush and pajamas. Bonus points if they glow in the dark."
