Good location. The kitchen is very big a comfortable to cook and have dinner or lunch. I stayed 2 nights in the 66 beds dorm and it was very good. I think city public hostel is the cheapest hostel in the city.

Really big rooms (for 22 and 66! people). In our room (that with 22 beds) were just a few windows on the ceiling, so it was dark, also during the day. The bathroom on the first-floor was not so clean, but the toilets an the kitchen on the ground floor were quite modern, big and clean. The only problem for... More

Really expensive, beds were uncomfortable and top bunks didn't have a ladder, showers were terrible and not enough, toilets needed more cleaning. However kitchen was really good. There were no codes on the doors or keys, anyone could just walk into anywhere so not all that safe. Don't know how this hostel has the good reviews it has. I'm sure... More

We stayed here for two nights, in a 22-bed mixed dorm, 19€/person / night. The first night was kind of horrible: the common area is right next to the dorm and people were yelling there and being really noisy, the beds were uncomfy, and there wasn't even a pillow included in the price. There are some small locker's in the... More

This place was terrible for 40$ a night. I had one bed in a six dorm. The room was filthy. The bunk beds felt like they were about to come apart. Linen and towels were at an extra charge. The bathroom was the worst part. It literally smelled like rotten fish. The walls of the shower were moldy. I don't... More

Normally I can go out drinking at night, come back and sleep through anything but not here. Too many people, rubbish beds, too small and the facilities are crap. Great trip to Copey but probably would have slept better in a public park.

I slept in the 66 people dorm and i have to say i LOVED it... it's funny because it's a new experience it's completely different from other hostels where u sleep with 4, 6 or 8 people in one room... and yes i would do it again! They have a beautiful garden and a nice terasse where... More

We went to CPH for a studytrip and this was our last hostel. We stayed for 2 nights and it was ok.. showers are in the basement but are clean! Kitchen is big and also clean! The dorm is small and you dont have a lot of space but it's manageable.. when you have good weather you can sit outside.

This was the worse hostel we stayed in during our trip through scandinavia. But.....it is in a great location and we meet some brilliant people. The hostel itself reminds me of FCA camp in Bear Island, rough !!! The place is falling down and the rooms are packed with bunk beds. I didn't dream of cooking there. Its not very... More

This hostels has all the services you need: best kitchen of our interrail, friendly staff etc. Even in the 66 persons dorm we had a comfortable night without any distractions. However, the beds were squeaky and you had to pay extra for pillows and blankets. The hostels was located at a walking distance from the rail station and there was... More
