Great location in the centre of town. Walking distance to all sights and attractions. Rooms are clean and all right for the price. This hostel also has a great (and cheap) bar with many opportunities to meet new people whilst playing a game of pool or cards (and more). This place is recommended to younger people that don't mind staying... More

Awesome staff, great price, one of the coolest bars in town. A must if you want to stay in downtown Copenhagen at a reasonable price. I took a single room with a private bath and the room was all I could need and the view was actually pretty cool. Do it. Keep in mind it is a hostel, with large... More

This hostel has a great rating but do not be fooled!! It's incredibly noisy the rooms have no ventilation and smell and the staff are very unhelpful. We waited over an hour for one of the dinners after being told to get there early and sit anywhere only to be informed that unfortunately our table would not be getting food... More

Stayed for a weekend in September, and loved the hostel. Great bar in the lobby that's conducive to making friends, as are the free dinner (for a limited number of guests) and the breakfast in the morning (worth the money).

This was my favorite hostel that I have stayed at in Europe. It has a great location for seeing Copenhagen and the free walking tour was great! I stayed in a four bed all female dorm and I never felt unsafe while I was in Copenhagen and I was traveling alone. The whole hostel was really clean including the bedrooms... More

It is not my habit to sleep in a youth hostel. But I tried for once. One of the reasons is that is is very well priced. I booked for a 10 bed sleeping room. The experience was wonderful. Despite the fact that all the beds were taken it was very quiet. I am a easy sleeper. Sanitairy looked very... More

Was there from a friday-sunday. Arrived and was welcomed by supernice staff. We were staying in a 10 bed dorm, fresh and clean and the room size was pretty ok. But hey, a dorm is a dorm and you get what you pay for. Ig you want more privacy you should book a private room or a dorm with less... More

I stayed in a single room with private toilet and shower. The room smelled cigarettes. It was very noisy. There was no chair and desk, which made the handling of my netbook quite complicated . The toilet paper was completely wet. Every time I opened the sink faucet, the shower dripped. There was no soap. However, I just loved breakfast... More
