This is one of the better hostels I've ever stayed in. Friendly staff, clean rooms, 24/7 reception, free wi fi, and a comfortable and inviting bar/common area- all located a short walking distance from the city. Plus it has all the usual things you appreciate in a hostel, such as lockers and luggage storage. The bathrooms and bedrooms let the... More

Without a doubt the best hostel I've ever stayed at! Amazing staff. Awesome rooms. Cool downstairs bar area. The free dinner is the best part as a solo traveller because it's SO easy to meet people. You have to get to your table earlier as they fill up quickly but it allows you to make friends very easily. After dinner... More

Good hostel, but on the ground floor there's bar with kitchen and place to eat. If I come to CPH for partying I definitely like this place, but this time we were very tired, wanted just to sit in quiet and plan our next day, but in crowded bar with loud music it was not possible. And that bar is... More

Really good hostel, nice staff, good atmosphere! Catharina and (staff) helped us very much! Close to the station, close to city center, overall a very good location. It's not the cheapest, but you'll really enjoy your stay here. Happy traveling!

I spent 2 days in Copenhagen and stayed at this hostel's dorm. Room and bed was clean but sharing toilets were not clean. There was a bad smell at the sharing area but personnels are very kind and cherful. Also hostel has a great location. You can walk to everywhere from hostel. Beers are cheap and free dinner is delicious.

Pros: Copenhagen Downtown is a great place to meet people from all over the world. The hostel is huge and there will almost always be an eclectic crowd hanging out in the giant common room every night since it's basically a large bar that guests and non-guests can go to. There's a decent sized kitchen where you can make your... More
