The major upsides I enjoyed were the central location, bike rentals, and live music at night. The downside was that the beds squeaked tremendously. Also, if you are willing to sacrifice seeing stray hairs in the bathroom/bedroom and are willing to wait in a 5-10-minute line to use the showers, then you might find this hostel an appropriate deal for...

I`ve been in this hostel for 1 night only, and when I had to leave after a day only I felt very sad. It has an atmosphere tipical of a bar. they have a service of ipads renting that requires only a document as bail, a great idea. you can have a free dinner at 5.30 pm so you can... More

Stayed here with a friend in for two nights in end of August and we had an absolute awesome stay. We did not take the breakfast offered but we ate the dinner there both nights which was great. The hostel probably suits people in Copenhagen for partying better than for those who want an early nights sleep though as it... More

I Spent 2 nights at CPH Downtown with a friend, the rooms were superclean and the toilets were sanitizes every hour; the hostel's pub is great and is the cheapest in Copenhagen. They rent bikes (cheaper then anywhere else), offer free walking tours and free meals every day at 18:30 for 50 people. Overall it's been a great experience and... More

I had a layover on the way to the US in Copenhagen, and decided to stay at a hostel overnight. This place was great and centrally located. I chose to stay in a bunk-bed situation with a shared bathroom. Definitely very clean, cleaner than any dorms I have ever been in my life. Spring for the breakfast, you won't leave... More

CPH Downtown has so many good qualities - great location, friendly staff, fun atmosphere, safe & clean. The bike hire was a bonus & their bar/reception/chill out area is a great way to spend a lazy few hours. I would recommend to anyone!

Location was wonderful, walking distance to everything and close to metro and things to do. Clean and comfortable. However, we booked two nights and they made us change rooms after the first night- so we had to check out the room by 10, go downstairs and leave our luggage in storage and then check back in after 2. Very annoying.... More

This hostel is a great choice for young travelers who are looking to meet new people while travelling. The staff are warm and friendly. The bar downstairs is quite nice too. Free dinner every evening lets you mingle and socialize with other guests at the hostel. I had a great time here, the location was great and just round the... More
