good location, good sightseeing and lie beside the ice lake.
reception proceed two transcations of 2570sek with my credit card. And after 20 days， i still can not get my money back.
Well-equipped kitchen Although you have to walk nearly 1 hour to the Aurora view point, they offer a stunning aurora view point to let you view aurora in 360 degree. It is worth to climb TWO hills. Free washing machine for use Clean toilet Washing basin inside the room
Wifi is only available in very small corner of hotel Facilities seem a bit old Check-in location is far away from the hostel, you have to "climb" up the hill for near half an hour with your luggage. However, see how luck you are, you may meet their staff driving their car. They may take you to Check-in location. Basically, it is impossible to carry the luggage(over 20kg) to "climb" the hill unless you are very strong. Staff does not know the hotel operation thoroughly. You can obtain different answers from different staff.
Kitchen and common rooms are very good.
Heating didn't work well. We waited a long time to have the problem resolved. 2 very cold nights.
the price is quite reasonable and staff are so friendly and helpful .they arranged vehicles to transfer luggage for me.
The location is far away from the main reception.
The hostel is on the other side of the train station and offers free transfer from train station and go to the hotel. There's living room, sauna, kitchen, even a piano, everything is self helped.
You have to check in at another hotel since no one works there. And there is no wifi !!!!!
The hotel receptionists during my stay from 24 December 2014 till 27 December from 2014 were very friendly and helpful.
The distance from Gammelgården to the main lobby in hotel Fjalllet is too far. To make it worst, during the snow storm it is almost impossible to go and get lunch and dinner. No transport service was provided for stayers to go tk the restaurant. And I wasn't informed that the tour was cancelled. I had to call at the last minute to get an answer.
Good place to stay, not far from Abisko National Park, very supportive staffs, good facilities
Arrived at night, hotel sign was unclear, had to circle around few times to look for the hotel
Warm, clean, kitchen and common areas were big and confortable
No wifi connection
We liked the sauna and the well equipped kitchen. Acces to the nice lounge at the hotel Fjellet with wifi is a nice option, especially because the hostel was almost closed down at our visit. The staff coming in to clean the rooms were all friendly and helpful. Pick rooms 5 - 11 with view of the lake, if you can, facing south. Björkliden is most of all a place for down hill skiing - the season starting in mid February. Until this date, only very little service. Nearby Abisko has more to offer if you do not come for down hill skiing. The town and the hotel Fjellet has wonderful views of the lake and mountains and also some shorter cross country trails. The grocery store, Lanthandel, opens mid February and has very friendly staff and high quality food.
The charming old living room shown on the website was locked until the opening of the café in late February. The kitchen, sauna and living room are all in the basement - no way to benefit of the magnificent view of the lake. Very little charm - we preferred to stay in our small room or sit at a small table at the entrance (window facing parking, but a window). 15 minutes steep walk uphill to the hotel. No wi-fi on the hostel. The worst thing, however, was an ugly smell in the tiny toilet. And even worse the smell in the corridor outside the room (due to a cleaning process in one of the rooms we were later told). It made me quite sick/headache as it went into our room as well. It should be said, that the staff admitted it was nasty and the hotel offered us a room in the hotel. I guess the place is different when the café opens and you have access to the old parts of the place (praised on the websites). We will not return.
Great location, really clean, well equipped kitchen. Viewpoint at the hotel up the road is gorgeous. Wifi just up the road at the main hotel (which has a beautiful lobby and makes great hot chocolate). NB walking to the main hotel is a pretty decent hike. We cheated and drove :)
Price doesn't include bed linen or room cleaning but them's the breaks. Would stay here again for sure.
Staff were very friendly and helpful, hostel was clean and had all the facilities you might require.
The hostel is nice, cosy and clean, with a big, well equiped kitchen and a place to eat and realx - perfect for low budget travelers. The staff is very friendly and helpful, made our stay in Bjorkliden really great.
Very poor wi-fi. Sauna open only 3 hours per day. A little bit cold downstairs and the toilets are placed in the middle of the corridors (poor intimacy).
Clean and comfortable hostel accommodation in a stunning setting. Staff at nearby Hotel Fjallet could not have been more friendly and helpful.
Staff were all very friendly and lovely. Were able to answer our questions and were flexible when problems occurred (problems with booking of activities, etc.). They were all very thoughtful, helped get us back from abisko after grocery shopping. Facilities were were all good. The hostel was clean and cozy and had everything we needed. The location was nice, got to see a lot of northern lights (3 out of 4 nights of our stay). Activities (ice cave and dog sled) were all very well planned, provided equipments we might need (tracksuits for warmth, helmets for safety, etc.). Guides were all very nice and were helpful. All seemed to know a lot about what they are doing and enjoy what they are doing. All in all, everything went well and service was excellent, would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to go up north!
The fire alarm in the kitchen was too close to the oven, it went off 2 times during our stay there. We tried hard to keep the smoke away from the detector while we were pan frying. We apologise for the inconvenience caused, for the staff to come all the way down to the hostel to switch it off, and to the other guests that were staying at the hostel. But it seems like a weird place to put a fire alarm.
Like the very friendly and helpful staff :) Plus the place isn't so touristy so it's nice, cosy and quiet. It's also pretty easy to get to from the train station as it's the only hotel/hostel there. haha
The hostel has no wifi >:( and if we need wifi we have to make a 15-20 min walk (uphill) to the hotel lobby for wifi.
Cosy place, very clean!
During mid season, the reception is closed, as the half of the hotel. You have to take a 20 min walk till another hotel to check-in, find wifi, etc.
The location and the warm youth hostel environment
Really near the train station, no need to worry even with a heavy luggage. We can even get WiFi at certain places in the hostel.
All services are provided by Hotell Fjället during the low season. Needed to walk 15 minutes uphill every day for wifi and tours and postcards. But the price worth it.
- We didnt receive any confirmation from the hostel for the rrom number and how to get the keys. - the reception is 1 km from the room (this information is not provided in the main page of the hostel) - room not clean and without bedline and without towels. - transportation expensive (more expensive that the room itself)
The nice view from main hotel lobby toward the lake Cozy reception and common room for taking rest
We had twice smoke alarm due to several backpackers from China using the common kitchen without paying good attention. Very bad Wifi signal and no signal at all sometimes, but it claims that the free wifi is across the building
