This hostel is perfect for young / solo travellers as so many activities to do. Has a great bar and even a club downstairs (inc live music and other events). The rooms were decent and clean but only 2 showers and 4 toilets on each floor, though I didn't find this a problem. Would definitely stay here again. Great location.... More

Great hostel to stay when visiting Copenhagen. Me and my friend rented a bike to explore the city. The hostel is located in the city centre of Copenhagen, great location! We stayed here for one night only. Showers were OK...nothing fancy but not shabby.

I had a great time at this hostel. It was very sociable and easy to meet people with a great bar/social area. Basic room set up with very small lockers but the place was clean and had everything I needed.

This hostel exceeds with its social areas - its bar and performance area, both of which are open 24/7 making the social scene buzzing. The hostel itself is extremely clean and well maintained throughout. The 'free dinner' advertised when booking is only available for a limited number of people, but you really can't complain with free food. The only bad... More

Great staff, great bar, cheap drinks, awesome smoking/chilling area outside. This place met and surpassed my expectations. The people staying at the hostel were awesome too. The staff were approachable and cool to talk to. Getting to the hostel is pretty simple... The first journey down from the station can sometimes be confusing, but once you have your bearings it's...

The stand out selling point for this hostel is the bar. Attracting people who aren't even staying at the hostel, the bar is the perfect place to relax with a few drinks and get to know people from all of the world. Everyone is friendly, so don't feel too shy if travelling on your own! We chose to spend a... More

Stayed here for 3 nights and it was a good stay overall. Staff was helpful and rooms were clean. The location is very central, easy to get here from the central station and the airport and all main attractions are within walking distance. However each floor had only 2 washrooms so that's a lot of people queuing up in the... More

I have recently stayed at the Copenhagen Downtown Hostel as a party of 3 women, in their early 30's. We were staying for just 2 nights as a cheap and cheerful midweek break on a budget. Location: It is superb! Very central, walking distance to most sights in Copenhagen and the metro. Perfect. Room: It was spotlessly clean and very... More
