Liked: Nice staff, great location, clean and comfortable.

Disliked: You have to pay for sheets. They provide pillow and blanket for free, and the sheets are to cover them to ensure cleanliness. I'd suggest bringing a sheet of some sort to avoid paying. Otherwise great!

Liked: I really enjoyed staying at Castanea. The staff are really helpful and the hostel has a relaxed friendly atmosphere. Very close to the Royal Palace and right in the heart of the old town you can easily walk to most attractions.

Disliked: At first I struggled to find the hostel as I arrived quite late, but once I found it, it made a great place to explore the city from. The lockers in the dorm rooms are quite small and if you are travelling with a large pack you won't be able to fit it all in the locker.
