Welcome to Castanea Old Town Hostel, one of the most central hostel in Stockholm.

Castanea is a small, personal hostel, located in the middle of the Old Town (Gamla Stan), one of the best preserved medieval city center in the world. We are a modern hostel in a charming building from 1747 with a beautiful horse chestnut tree at the square just outside. A fantastic location in the heart of Stockholm and at the same time our street is quiet and calm. It couldn’t be better.

We would like you to experience a homely and friendly atmosphere and hope you can feel at home away from home.

Stay in dorm or a private room. We have single, twin, 4-bed and 6-bed private rooms and dorm with 4, 6 or 16 beds. All our rooms have big beautiful windows and comfortable beds with reading lights. The rooms are facing a small street, square or the tranquil backyard.

Bring your own bed-linen or rent from us. Sleeping bags are not allowed.

All rooms have shared shower and toilet. Separate showers so you can lock the door.

In our popular guest kitchen you can prepare your own meals. Why not start your day with making breakfast in our kitchen and buy some lovely fresh bread from the bakery just around the corner.

Relax in our common room with maps, books and homemade tips about Stockholm. Our guests come from Sweden and around the world. You will find backpackers, families, couples or just friends looking for a comfortable stay.

Free guest computers and WIFI, strong in common areas but not in all rooms.

Yes - we are Eco friendly and are active with saving energy, waste recycling among other things.

When you stay at Castanea you are only 200 meters from the Royal Palace, Stockholm Cathedral, Nobel museum and of course in the middle of a lot of great cafés, restaurants, bars and shopping.

A short walk will take you to the City hall or to the local ferry to Djurgården, Skansen and the Vasamuseum. Just minutes from the boats to Stockholms famous Archipelago. Castanea is also close to Central Station, only one stop with the underground. What can we say – just in the middle of everything!

Welcome to Castanea and Stockholm!

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

I'm a regular visitor to Sweden and Stockholm, and it's the sixth year I've stayed during December, but this year the place I've stayed for the past three years wasn't available so I had to look for somewhere else. As I'd enjoyed staying at the previous place, I was a little disappointed at having to change, but from the minute I walked into Castanea, all worries disappeared. The staff were really pleasant, helpful and friendly. They seemed to go out of their way to help and make you feel welcome. Even the notices advising you about what to do and how to use the kitchen, shower and other facilities were fun and amusing ~ in other places they would be negative, blunt and coldly worded. The whole place was clean ~ amazingly so, plus warm and cosy. The lounge was fun and pleasant to use, and I made many new friends whilst staying there. We are already thinking about going back. I had a week at Castanea, but would quite happily have stayed a month or more. It is right in the centre of the beautiful Gamla Stan, has the T-banan, buses and Djurgården ferry only a short walk away and is ideally located to explore the city. However, it is quiet, with no traffic noise. It's a brilliant place to stay and I will certainly return.
God jul och gott nytt år to all at Castanea and all who stayed there.
Best wishes and many thanks

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Great hostel - almost more like a hotel than a hostel. Lots of little touches made it great - funky lampshades, christmas decorations and lamps in each room... Very picturesque location, and only a short work to the underground train, only one stop from the central station.
