€30 for a bed for a night in a European capital city? That's more than ok for me. Very good atmosphere at this little gem, tucked nicely into a quiet street within easy walking distance of all major sights. Very friendly staff who were on hand to answer any questions & were kind enough to call a taxi for me.... More

the hostel is amazing . when we arrived in Copenhagen we stayed with a different hostel and now I'm glad we decided to move to Down town . the hostel is centrally located and is handy for making your way around the city . we were staying on the top floor and it was great as there was no noise...

The hostel was centrally located, is a pickup point for free city walking tours and offers bike hire. The dorm rooms were small with insufficient power points. There are also insufficient bathrooms and they need improvement as the floors become flooded after showers are used as there is no barrier between the shower and rest of the bathroom. Staff are...

Clean rooms and modern facilities.The staff is very nice and will help with everyghing. We had a problem with the window of our room, but they fixed it and invited us to breakfast. It is also a good place to have some drinks at a very reasonable price, with good music and good environment. Definitely a worth experience and right... More

The rooms are quite expensive, but you are in the centre of Copenhagen (and nothing is cheap in Copenhagen!) The rooms are basic, yet comfortable, we had a twin room. We loved the relaxed atmosphere, we met lots of new people and shared the free dinner at 6:30pm. The Happy Hour is a good start to the night too. Would... More

I spend one night alone here. Location is good. It has a second building at its side with very limited elevator. Price is a bit expensive for what it offers. The bar on the ground floor is quite cool. Rooms were clean and bathrooms okay.

Most expensive dorm bed I've ever paid for, and that did not even include the breakfast. The breakfast buffet was rather simple and not worth the amount I paid for it. CPH is an expensive city. The shower was partly on outside, so prepare to be chilled there during winter months. Fortunately at least warm water was running... Lockers in... More

Staff were really helpful. Was concerned about guests who seemed "out of it"...perhaps I'm missing the point. Everyone seemed happy excluding those about to fall off their perches! Good place for some but others may prefer Christiania or a regular hotel/bar. Undoubtedly a back-packer's joint.
