Really had the best time. The hostel was the most cozy and amazing place to stay and you could absolutely notice the effort and love that was put in the whole place. Nice people, lovely views at a winter wonderland when looking out the window and the feeling of home. Everything that you need is right there. :')

Make sure u did some walk to explore upon u reach the accommodation. It will be agreat help to navigate. There are free food that are left over by guests. Make sure u bring along your own food if u Want something special. Nearest restaurants is 20-30min walk away. When go to yllas ski, request the driver to send u back to hostel, they are pretty nice Drivers from the ski center.

7Fells is a cozy place with a pretty central location - although to ski at the Ylläs fell you might want to use a car (I don't know if there is any public transport). The staff was kind and helpful, the kitchen well furnished and organized and the dining room very cozy. Due to the cozy common area in this place it's also easy to get to know other guests :). The room we stayed in was fairly small and there was no room for our rucksacks since there were only 4 closets for 6 people so you might need to be able to lock your bag. Otherwise the place is amazing! Our only problem were the snoring travelers in our room but earplugs are some of the most important traveler's equipment anyway!

It's a great hostel, Tinja is a great host, she helped us with all our questions. The hostel is really cozy, with a fire place, and a sauna. I'm already recommending this hostel to my friends.

Tinjas hostel is a warm place and I met so many people there. I met so many nice people there and we went on trips together. The areas cross-country skiing is really amazing. Tinja is the best host, nice, flexible. The room was clean. Morning coffee was included. I will definitely come back and do a hut-to-hut cross country ski tour! :)

I'm a backpacker at heart, love trains and discovering new amazing places. I used to travel a lot when I was "younger" and had a dream of having my own hostel. Finally that dream came true over 10 years later in June 2014 :)

I love photography, eco stuff, recycling and secondhand. I would love to learn a new language or two, I speak a little bit of German and French and swear in few other languages :p
