About us

Castanea – a small personal hostel in Stockholm

Castanea is located at one of The Old Towns narrow and cobble stoned streets. With a beautiful horse chestnut tree at a small square just outside. In the 250 year old house we have private rooms and dormitories all with comfortable beds and big beautiful windows.

Feel at home – away from home

We would like you to experience a homely and friendly atmosphere. Welcome to prepare your breakfast in our kitchen, have some lovely fresh bread from the bakery 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 and pleasant stay.

What can we say – just close to everything!

Just around the corner from the Royal palace, Stockholm Cathedral, Nobel museum and of course in the middle of a lot of great cafes, restaurants, bars and shopping. A short stroll will take you to the City hall or to the local ferry to Djurgården, Skansen and the Vasamuseum. Just minutes from the boats to Stockholm’s famous archipelago.

If you are happy – we are happy!
