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,... More

We stayed in a two persons room at Yellow House. We arrived one hour earlier, but got our room instantly. The owner was friendly and told us the basic things, we needed to know about the hostel. Our room had a big tv, two beds, a table with four chairs, a sink, a refrigiator and our own toilet and bath.... More

We came late with another group of people for the traffic problem, and the owner was angry and aggressive when we asked whether there were rooms available. He even said "get out" --- I was shocked honestly. It was Christmas night, cold and we were students, have no idea what's wrong with him. Of course we left, couldn't bear him... More

The owners of the yellow hotel is really rude and unfriendly. Also no internet access, and the shared bathroom is dirty. I simply have no idea why the owner is so rude, but after I read other people's comments, it seems like he is rude to most of the people. Don't suggest you book this hotel.

We loved this place, welcoming, warm and comfortable. It is simple but has all you need and the urn surrounding area is perfect for walking tours which we wanted to do Also they gave us support with our travel arrangements when we were forced to cancel a trip we had planned

We spent a nice New Year Eve at the yellow House. Met a lot of interesting and friendly people (mostly bagpackers). Rooms are confortable; Kitchen (well-equipped) and showers are shared and clean. A very good cheap alternative, with a good location in Kiruna. Don't forget to enjoy the sauna...which is outside the main building ;)

One of the greatest Places I've ever stayed and I've been all over the world spending time at places like Yellow House. Superb management, service and reception. Clean rooms, cosy athmosphere, especially the garden with possibilities to create Your own barbeque-cousine. This is a Place I've been visiting several times and this is a place I'll always come back to.

When I didn't wan't to pay much money for or two nights in Kiruna, I was happy to find the internet pages to Yellow House. Yes, the place is well located in Kiruna. A nice older house - actually two houses with rooms. The kitchen area was well equipped and clean and cozy. Our room was a bit dusty and... More

At their rate, don't expect too much. Check in procedure is confusing though. The reservation desk is not always attended, and you have to wait for a while until someone come. Really annoying to wait for that long just to get your room key back. Unfortunately, the staff isn't really nice as well, and a bit grumpy. I had some... More

Yellow House is a cheap youth hostel providing clean rooms but no breakfast. Check-in was a bit confused but once in the room was big and spacey and the washrooms only 20 metres down the corridor.. Centre of town with restaurants is less than 10 minutes walk. A bit grotty but to the price absolutely satisfactory. There is a well... More
