I loved my trip to Stockholm and this hostel had really helped in making it a great & comfortable experience. The staff are very friendly, there is plenty of space in the common rooms, everything is quite new and very Ikea! The showers seem new and even had heated floor boards! We travelled in December and I was worried of being cold in the hostel(as some places have really terrible heating) and this place was toasty warm. The big benefit of this hostel also is the good sized kitchen. As eating in restaurants is pretty expensive in Stockholm, it helped a lot to have access to a nice clean kitchen. Also the location is right in Gamla Stan which is such a nice part of Stockholm! I would definitely recommend this hostel. The only down side is the size of the rooms - we have a twin bed room, and it was relatively small. We were happy with it and since there are big common rooms it was no issue, but it might be worth noting.

We only stayed here one night, but will certainly be back. The location, price and staff are brilliant. The twin rooms are small, but cosy and quiet with everything you need, and there are nice public areas to spend time in. The staff were very helpful in checking us in early, booking a taxi and advising on the weather, and it was a warm welcome.
I almost don't want to share this review as I would rather keep this excellent budget Stockholm option a secret!

We really liked our stay at Castanea Old Town Hostel. It is directly located in the old town, probably the most central place there is. That's just wow! The rooms are basic but contain everything you need in a hostel. The common room is a great place to meet people from all over the world. The kitchen is well equipped and the bathrooms are very clean. The staff was always helpful and never intrusive. For the winter time I would have liked something to put your wet and muddy shoes in in order to keep the floor clean. Long speech short: the hostel is highly recommendable!

Great place to stay in Stockholm, excellent location in the middle of Gamla Stan just 2 blocks away from Royal Palace and Nobel Museum. Clean bathrooms, nice common area. The kitchen is a good option, with all necessary for cooking. In a city with high food prices, it´s really helpful.
Staff girls were really kind and nice!! they gave tips about museums and transportation in the city.

Highly recommended place.

Great location in the Old Town attractions but quiet enough for a good night sleep. Everything you could want in a hostel - clean bathrooms, cosy common area, kitchen and very accommodating staff.

Highly recoomend and you couldn't ask for a better location.
