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.
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 Djurgarden, Skansen and the Vasamuseum. Just minutes from the boats to Stockholm's 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!
