We have a fantastic location in the heart of Stockholm and at the same time our street is quiet and calm. It couldn’t be better.
Both our entrances, from the street and into Castanea are locked; it is only our guests and the other house tenants who have the current door code. We change the code now and then, to be on the safe side.
If you need to leave bags before or after your stay, our luggage room also has a door code. We have lockers in our dormitories. You are welcome to bring your own padlock or rent/buy from us.
After 23.00 (11 PM) it should be quiet, the public rooms may not be used. Quietness must prevail for those who want to sleep.
Our best testimonial is that the Stockholm Fire Brigade has recommended us as an example for other newly-started hostels. As an important preventive measure, smoking and use of candles are not allowed at Castanea Hostel.
We take continuous measures to prevent fires and ensure that all fire-fighting equipment is available. Some checks we do daily, others monthly or quarterly. We of course have an automatic direct connection to the PSAP (Alarm central) if smoke or heat is detected.
