Very centrally located. I didn't even need to take the subway once. The staff are very kind and helpful. Facilities are nice and clean. a very calm and quiet hostel. But if you are young and looking to party and meet people etc. this may not be the right place for you.

We (me and my 4 other friends) stayed in a 16 people dorm room. It was a very good stay because the hostel was quiet, clean and very nicely located. Especially i was thinking the 16 people dorm was going to be hell but it was not at all. We all had very good sleep except for the last night there was an extra person on the top bunk of my friend's bed if you know what I mean. Anyway other than that it was like a hotel not like an average hostel. We were very much pleased with our stay there.

The location is great ! It's comfortable and peaceful. If you want to stay in an hostel to take a rest just before a big day of hiking.

very nice clean, helpful staff, wifi, great kitchen, located right in gamla stan in the old city. not the kind of place if youre looking to meet other young people traveling around, but all in all a great, quiet little hostel p.s. excellent cafe downstairs- if you're staying at the hostel you get a special deal

In the heart of the most charming part of Stockholm, the historic old center, the Castanea was a perfect base for becoming acquainted with the city. Although close to many shops, restaurants, and sites, the hostel is on a quiet block and my room was serenely peaceful. The lady in charge was welcoming, thoughtful, and efficient. The kitchen facilities are nice if you want them but there is an excellent small restaurant right next door, The rooms and bathroom were pristine. It felt very safe.

Nice place for a reasonable Price. We were in a doubl room, simple but comfortable and clean. It has a window which help because they are in the ground floor. The staff was helpful and nice and the services were clean. Nice place.

A little bit noisy because of thin walls. Nice bathrooms.
