“Overpriced for what you get”
Reviewed 6 October 2013

My cabin was ~250 USD which is a good amount of money. For that amount of money this cabin was very poor. It was VERY dated, extremely sparse, few amenities, no towels, no bed linens, etc. I had to clean it from top to bottom myself or risk a huge fee. Really for that amount of money I need to clean everything... come on. The lights were dim and flickered on and off, seriously the cabins need a MAJOR renovation. Bathroom had mold and just a very dirty old look and feel. I do not see how people said the cabins were good. Again, if this was half the price, given the location, which is amazing, I would not have an issue with this place. Everything had a fee, late checkout had a price... We requested a cabin with a view months in advance and was told OK several times, then when we got there, we got different stories, only for large families (all cabins looked to be same size), then they were being serviced so we got stuck with a cabin with crappy views of the cabins with a view. For aurora viewing not the best either, lots of lamps all over the property which show up as bright as the moon during aurora photos. Sadly there is not much choice around the area, I guess they know this and charge a hefty fee since you have little choice accommodation wise. Cannot recommend this place.

Room Tip: cabins are overpriced and old

I have stayed here both in the winter and summer. The hostel is busy and has a family friendly feel to it, the staff are helpful and approachable. There is a nice bar and restaurant with a great view out onto the Torneträsk lake, ask when they open and close for lunch and dinner, iv’e been caught out a few times. There is also a sauna, reading room, lounge, equipment rental, shop, washing machines and a TV room. Book early especially during the winter, accommodation is limited in Abisko.

Very friendly staff and a good infrastructure for hiking tours: shop, information center with guided tours, drying room and wash machine. Camping ground, hostel or hotel standard and a good restaurant is located nearby the train station, lake and national park center. The hostel rooms are basic but good and clean. Even the hot steam is included. I can recommend this place for hikers.

This Place is nothing more than a youth hostel, yet in you don't happen to be an International Youth Hostels Association member, a room for two will cost you SEK 2,000'or some €220 per night! Outrageous. And the rooms are fitted with bunk beds!! I recommend the Abisko Mountain Lodge, at Abisko Östra train station instead.

It was the lure of northern lights which brought me and my friend to STF Abisko. With a beautiful view, the room was excellent for star gazing in night, waiting for the patterns. Since it was a weekend, there was no staff, hence no room service. But the kitchens were equipped enough for the stay. Although they were hostel rooms, each had a bathroom. A definite must for those looking for a budget stay.

Me and my family had a nice week at STF Abisko. We lived in one of the separate cottages, which has 6 beds and a large combined living room and kitchen. We stayed there for the location and it's proximity to Björkliden and Riksgränsens ski resorts. We mostly went by cross country skis, but we did some high alpine tours with randonne skis as well. The view from the dining room is really spectacular and we really enjoyed this place.

The rooms are very hostel like, though with your own bathroom. I was only their for 1 night which was enough, but the room did the job as this is the best location to benefit from the Aurora Sky Station. However, the food was more of a revelation, I was expecting something basic from the restaurant, but I received a very nice 3 course meal, with very good service too.
