  • Castanea is a warm hostel that makes you feel at home. And the breakfastoffer in the cafè downstairs makes it perfect!

  • The room is for 4 ppl which is too tiny! When I looked at the floor plan, the room is as same small as twin bed room. It is unfair. It's not worth staying there. The "L" shape locker is only for day backpack and all luggage has to put on the floor which is just fit for a person standing. There is bar or other shops on G/F which is very noisy til mid night (1:30am). Everything needs $ No staff after 6pm and I need to wait 9am to pay, I don't think they are helpful even they are very nice.

  • 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!!
