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

We had to pay for sheets and a pillow. Internet only worked half of the time we stayed there! The staff was ok, not very friendl but still not unfriendly either. The kitchen was one of the nice places and the garden as well. In addition we could easily reach the train station and many differnet places. But we also... More

Location wise- about 10 min walk down to the town hall and strotget, the main shopping area. We stayed in the 22 bed dorm and were pleasantly surprised by the well partitioned beds- meaning we could have quite a bit of privacy despite so many people being in one room. The beds were creaky and the mattresses not the most... More

Beds were comfy enough, kitchen was well equipped and staff were friendly. Showers and upstairs toilets were not good. Dorms are more private than expected, 66 actually looked more private than 22. Obviously dorms were quite loud in the mornings and evenings, also there are a lot of school groups. Overall the stay is acceptable and we would return but... More

The beds were comfortable and the showers were tiny, but there were just too many people in one room to feel safe. It is too expensive for so many people to be in one room. Wifi is patchy and slow. The kitchen is large and well equipped. Staff is friendly and helpful- also have a good sense of humor. i... More

Location is quite good and walking distance to the train station and also from the Tivoli Park. Dorms are big and noisy at all times. We were unlucky and the guy next to us snored so loud. The accommodation is expensive and you pay for everything - blanket, sheets, pillow - all of which are of sub standard quality. Could... More

We ended up in this hotel by pure case: supposed to camp in Svendborg, we decided to go directly to Copenhagen and ended up panic-searching for hostels on the web. We found that one and had a bed for the night for 20€ each! Since we were travelling with our own bedlinen and towels, we did not have to pay... More

This is more camping than a hostel. It is the first time in 15 months traveling I have ever worn thongs in the shower. the dorm room has 66 beds in, there are only some electric plugs in the common room. The guests just sit and watch tv, there is no atmosphere. I can handle all the crap stuff and... More

My boyfriend and I really enjoyed our 2 night stay here and agree that it had one of the best atmospheres for backpackers. It's an awesome value for Copenhagen considering how expensive the city is! There's a Lidl grocery store (and several others but thats the cheapest) about 5 minutes away and pretty much everyone staying there bought groceries and... More
