The cabin had everything you need also its very warm and has TV, kitchen, etc but not wifi when we stayed but still...

We arrived at 10.am and left our luggage in the grey garage (as told in the confirmation email). If you arrive before the check-in time (2.pm) and someone left one of the building's door unlocked then you can go inside and wait in the kitchen, or just leave the luggage in the garage and visit the city. Cleanliness of the...

Stayed for 4 nights. The rooms are spacious, but not too clean: this is because the owner expects the guests to clean the room before they check out. I advise to bring your own bed linen as the one that the hostel provides (for 60SEK) smell of tobacco. The common premises are also quite dirty and messy, but they do...

Stayed here 3 times in total, once in 2008, two times in 2011. Owner is, as mentioned by other guests, a bit strange. He's not the chatty type and looks a bit rude sometimes. First time I had to wait over an hour before he came to the reception desk. Rooms are basic comfort and a bit outdated, but overall...

We were able to get a room without reservation. The room it self was in good shape, some of the hallways and stairs were pretty rickety though. People like to have barbecues in the middle of the night (midnight sun) on the lawn of the building. With in walking distance to the mountain Luossavaara which has a ski lift and...

If you like to stay at a hostel in Kiruna please think it over twice, if you like it stinky and dirty then go ahead! Bed lining smells tobacco and sour, the rooms are dirty and smelly, showers probably full of mold in the walls, the common kitchen not even worth to mention. Yes its cheap but thats it, choose...

The hotel is nice and clean and there were no problems with anything - the staff was friendly and kind. We had 2 double bedrooms, which were nice and clean, and in the building was a kitchen as well, that had everything we needed. We really enjoyed the stay here! You need your own bedsheets (or pay an extra fee...

For the price (170sek - 220sek per person) this was the cheapest hostel I could find in kiruna - so fundamentally, for a cheap night in an expensive country where all you are looking for is a bed with no frills this works fine. Although it's worth pointing out that the price doesn't include sheets - which are 50sek extra,...
