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... More

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... More

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 ;)
