I stayed at Castanea for four nights and had a fantastic experience. The staff went above and beyond to make sure I was comfortable and enjoying my stay. Unlike most hostels that just chuck you your room card and set you off, the lady from...More
One night someone broke into the hostel, snuck into all the rooms and stole from us (seemed a bit sussed that the person knew all the hostel door codes, maybe an inside job). A few peoples belongings were taken including my iPhone and my camera,...More

We are sorry another guest took your belongings. We can certify that no one from outside came in. All guests are responsible for their own belongings, and we as a hostel always recommend you to use the lockers when staying in a dorm room. There...More
I stayed here for a week and enjoyed my stay. It's very clean and in a great area. The mattress was a bit thin, but overall it's excellent, especially on a budget. It's nice and quiet so you can sleep well. The wifi is free...More
We were a group of 3 girls who stayed in a 4 bed room (2 bunk beds). The room we had was basic with a small table, lamp and chairs; 2 shelving units, a floor length mirror and coat hooks. There are also little baskets...More
The two biggest reasons to choose Castanea are the location, right in the centre of Gamla Stan and within walking distance of the city's biggest attractions, and the showers, which have heated floors and are superior to any others I have tried in a hostel...More
Gamla Stan is Stockholm’s historic old town and home to the Swedish Royal Palace. It’s the most central island of Stockholm and accompanied by the small island of Riddarholmen, mainly known for its famous Riddarholm Church. Gamla Stan tends to be a bit touristy at times but is definitely worth visiting: take a stroll past the well-preserved buildings and through the small (and also Sweden’s narrowest)
alleys, which will make you feel like you’ve travelled back in time. This neighborhood offers a great combination of historical buildings and traditional Swedish restaurants.

Hi! Depending on if you arrive by Tallink or Viking Line you will either arrive at Stockholm Frihamnen or Stadsgården. From Frihamnen you take a bus and then change to metro. What bus to take depends on when you are arriving.
From Stadsgården (Viking line) you can walk. It's maybe a 15-20 min walk. It's just one stop with the metro and you're already half way there when you're at the metro station Slussen.
