Based on few traveler that already stayed in this hostel, this hostel was quite crowded especially at night. I stayed here before Midsummer Event for 1 day before continued my trip to Stockholm.

I arrived at CPH at 3 am and, although they were "fully booked", they found space for me and my traveling companion in a room in their basement for a reasonable price. We then stayed for an additional three nights in the 66 bed and then the 8 bed dorms. Both were clean and fairly quiet, cannot really fault. We... More

Like many other backpackers, I chose City Public because it was the cheapest hostel in town - turns out it was also an amazing place to stay and really felt like home. All the dorms are sectioned in "compartments" of two bunkbeds so you have enough personal space if you just want some alone time, even in the 66 bed... More

Fair price, clean ambient and well located! The hostel is nearby the main city attractions. Its a little bit expensive than another ones, but the location was important to save money and time for visiting the city center.

We weren't expecting much as it was pretty cheap, but the showers were nice and clean, and so was the kitchen. There were lots of pans and plates to use and everyone seemed to clear up after themselves, the kitchen was really big so there was plenty of space to cook, even at peak times. We were in a mixed...

I didn't like the hostel, but I think it is most suited for a backpacker. Copenhagen is very expensive and I'm sure this is one of the cheapest hostels here but still, it was like a home for the homeless. There was no breakfast, no linens included, no charging points inside the dorm rooms, internet was pathetic (it was so... More

It was sub par, can do better. The toilets were not really clean. The beds are comfortable but there are no locks on the doors. It fits its price at least. Service was great! It's fine for one night but for longer stays might wanna reconsider.

Unfortunately my party and the other girl in our sleeping area all got sick from this place. We are leaving with sniffles, sore throats, and extremely tired. Bunk beds are so small that if you're a person with long hair I recommend you take a top bunk because otherwise every time you get up your hair will get caught in... More

Nice, basic hostel. It is very close to everything and within walking distance from the station. You do have to pay for linen, towels and a padlock, but this is made clear before you arrive and the money goes towards the after school club which is sweet. Wifi good, maps provided, staff very friendly and the hostel is clean. My... More

The hostel itself is in a good location, everything is within walking distance. The dorm room that we stayed in (15 bed mixed dorm? - the cheapest available) was horrendous. Unclean, dark, dingy and outdated. The beds had very old metal frames that were rusty and squeaky. In between these 'beds' were wobbly sheets of plywood creating 'privacy' for the... More
