Best hostel I've been to in terms of atmosphere. The outdoor beanbags are awesome! The lobby doubles as the common area and bar, which is also popular among the locals. Definitely a great place to meet new people! BUT all of this means this place is not the place to go if you're looking for a good night sleep! My... More

1. First there was no room available and we had to get to another place.. This kind of things can happen. It turned to be annoying when we had to pay our breakfast (280dkk) although it was supposed to be free.. 2. We got back to downtown hostel for our third (and last) night in Copenhagen. Music runs until 4am... More

Stayed here from the 24th to the 27th of this month! Loved everything about it! When we arrived it was busy so it took a while to check in, we were given a free pint for our wait! Stayed in a four bedded room was clean and basic, no problems! We figured that if we used showers before 9 in... More

This is the most social hostel I have ever been to. It helps that free dinner is provided daily but be sure you sit at the tables where dinner is supposed to be served and get there a couple of hours early. This begins your social period with other guests. Then right afterwards happy hour begins. Even after happy hour,... More

Ok so I didn't stay here because I mistakenly booked another hostel. However my friend stayed here and I would hang with her in the downstairs lounge. One of the employees who goes by Charlie, is super helpful in giving you suggestions on where to go and explore. Very nice guy. The downstairs lobby/bar is lively and full of people.... More

Stayed one night. It's a massive hostel with around 600 beds , I got a bed in a10 bed dorm. Facilities are clean, beds are awkwardly placed, I had my neighbour's feet in my face. Metal bunk beds, the little ladder makes an annoying noise whatever you do. There is a bar downstairs, well, it's okay but in general, it... More

We stayed here mid April and couldn't have asked for a better stay. The staff were so helpful, friendly and nice. The rooms were extremely clean, modern, fresh and comfortable. One of the best hostels we have stayed in. They serve a free dinner to the first 50? people on selected tables in the bar each night which is a... More

€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...
