I loved the location of the hostel! It's close to Gamla Stan station so you do not have to walk very far with your luggage. It's also a walking distance to the city centre and I even walked to Djurgarden from there. It's tucked away...More

Hello, glad you liked the location and the atmosphere at Castanea. But I'm sorry to hear you were not happy with the room size. Since this is in the middle of the Old Town, several of the rooms are rather small. Despite this, many of...More
it's in the best location in Gamla Stan(Old town), convenient if you either want to walk to the city or down south to Sodermalm. I stayed in a 16 room. it's a quiet season so there weren't too many people. it's a small cosy hostel....More
Located right in the middle of the Old Town in Stockholm (Gamla stan,) a short walk to many of the attractions. It's fairly close to Gamla stan Metro (T-bahn) station, but you won't need to use it unless you're planning on travelling out of central...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.
