We came upon hostal El Castaneu by coincidence, planning to stay here one night. In the end we stayed five nights, because of the warm hospitality of owner Carmen. She really gave us the feeling of being at home, with her homemade cakes and advice on the different routes in the Picos. Thereby the restaurant of El Castaneu offers good food in comparison to the other restaurants in Arenas de Cabrales, and for only ten euros. Carmen was always ready to help us, it was our favourite stay in Asturias.
