i can forgive a lot when it comes to hostels. but when there is no wifi (not even in the common room) i have trouble. this has the potential to be a great little place but staff are rude and the bathroom smelled. it was really average until you minus wifi. then its terrible.

We stayed one night in this "hotel" mainly because of the location but I certainly would not stay here again, even though it is cheap. Cheap and cheap, when you take into consideration that there are no parking spaces attached to this place and the cost you have to pay for your vehicle, this is a matter of opinion. You... More

We unfortunately did not have a good time here. We felt the price we paid for this hostel was far too costly considering the conditions we were given in our rooms. We stayed in hostel dorms, they were male and female separated ones. The bunks had no ladders, there were no curtains on the windows (and up in Denmark during... More

This was a pretty average, perhaps slightly below average, hostel. Rooms are spartan and no locks for the lockers or linens are provided - you have to pay for these things. There is free wi-fi throughout, but it barely worked for much of my 3-night stay. The bathrooms and showers were kept clean enough. The location is very convenient -... More

Aarhus doesn't have a lot of hostels so no choice for me. The reception is not for 24 hours. The storage room is no locked so anyone can go there. The room is not so clean... feel old I think. The room price is not so cheap also you need an extra fee for linens if you don't have. The... More

City Sleep-In is a pretty standard hostel. Decent location. The guy at reception wasn't overly animated but was helpful enough when we asked questions. Even though I'd booked an 8 bed dorm somehow I was in a 12 bed dorm but that didn't bother me. Shared shower and toilets were ok. Common room with TV, Fussball table, etc. Wi Fi... More

Went with a few friends and stayed for one night. LOCATION The hostel is located right near the harbor, but it was quite a walk from the central bus station - at least 15 minutes. However, it is very close to the main shopping areas, the sea, and if you want to take public transit, there's a trolley and bus... More

We paid fortune for a room worse than my dorms. Bathroom didn't have a working light and no window either. Sink tubes weren't attached to anything so all the water was leaking on my feet. Shower was just a hole in the middle of the tiny bathroom. Was afraid to use it in case the whole room would flood. Terrible... More

First and last stay at City Sleep-In - that's for sure. If backpacker's standards (and I've stayed on a bunch of those around the world), fine, but then let the price be adjusted hence. I paid 550 DKK for a room plus linen. This money buys you an absolutely agreable accomodation in other Danish and international cities so I was... More

A very simple hotel, no luxery, but very cheap compared to other hotels in the area. And short distances to the attractiones in Aarhus. The atmosphere is nice. Internet, biljard and a beautiful garden to relax after walking around in the city. I paid (once) dkk 20. (2,7 euro/3,5 $) for linnen/towel. I hope to be back at City Sleep-In... More
