This little house is located about 12 minutes walk from both the Train station & Bus station (uphill). It's a lower floor of a house and has 2 bunk beds in a room, one shower+toilet and a toilet, a kitchen with all utensils, a dining area and a little hall. The place was clean and tidy, and you got to clean it before you leave too. The place also has some rules, like no showers between 23.00-6.00 and no racketing, but that was ok for us. Bed linen & towel costs 50Kr more. It is pretty economical for budget travellers to cook there as will cause some restaurants are pretty expensive in Kiruna. There is a Coop and an ICA close by to shop.
It's about 10 minutes walk away from Camp Ripan, where after 21.30 the ski track lights go off and it is pretty dark, where you can see the Northern-light less the distraction of city lights. It is about 15 mins from the ski-slope where if you take the snow mobile trail to the other side you can view the Northern-lights too.
The landlady lives upstairs. She is a nice person and will give you some basic tips. All in all, a very good and budget place to stay.
