  • Very friendly and welcoming girl in the reception. Stop charging for the linnen though, considering the already high price (for a hostel), charging for linnen just seems greedy. Other than that; we enjoyed our stay and I would recommend this hostel to others.

  • Very high standard hostel. Loved everything: the location, the room, useful tips on the board in the common room, kitchen equipment. There are also some nice places to eat nearby. The only downside of the hostel is thin walls — it could get a bit noisy at night if neighbours were being loud.

  • The location is awesome approx. 200 meters of the royal palace in the centre of the city.

  • I like here sooooo much!! It is quite near to the royal palace of Sweden and have cafés and restuarants nearby. Located in old town you can enjoy the special peaceful atmosphere there in Stockholm. The room is really lovely and clean, at least my single private is. The shared bathroom and toilet is also tidy and clean. Highly recommended!!

  • Castanea Old Town Hostel has very good location, nice rooms and good service. You can buy breakfast at a reduced price in a nice café next to the hostel. Visiting our friends in Stockholm it turned out that this café was their favourite coffee place in Stockholm. People who worked in a hostel were friendly and smiling and helpful. I will recommend the hostel to my friends and use it again the next time I will be in Stockholm.

  • perfect location, I'm sure you can't find a better one. If I visit Stockholm once again, I would probably stay there again. but be sure to take your linen and towel with you, because they care about money and rent everything; that's the only bad side of the hostel.

  • Where is the staff? I had to quit one trip I was doing in the middle of it, just because reception works with limited time. If I had not left my trip, I would not find any staff member in a three days stay! Location is pretty good. Not a party hostel.

  • Great staff! Very clean and nice hostel. Because of the 'come and going' rain, I'll suggest the owner to put some strings or wires on the windowsill in the room.
