I Spent 2 nights at CPH Downtown with a friend, the rooms were superclean and the toilets were sanitizes every hour; the hostel's pub is great and is the cheapest in Copenhagen. They rent bikes (cheaper then anywhere else), offer free walking tours and free meals every day at 18:30 for 50 people. Overall it's been a great experience and... More

I had a layover on the way to the US in Copenhagen, and decided to stay at a hostel overnight. This place was great and centrally located. I chose to stay in a bunk-bed situation with a shared bathroom. Definitely very clean, cleaner than any dorms I have ever been in my life. Spring for the breakfast, you won't leave... More

CPH Downtown has so many good qualities - great location, friendly staff, fun atmosphere, safe & clean. The bike hire was a bonus & their bar/reception/chill out area is a great way to spend a lazy few hours. I would recommend to anyone!

Location was wonderful, walking distance to everything and close to metro and things to do. Clean and comfortable. However, we booked two nights and they made us change rooms after the first night- so we had to check out the room by 10, go downstairs and leave our luggage in storage and then check back in after 2. Very annoying.... More

This hostel is a great choice for young travelers who are looking to meet new people while travelling. The staff are warm and friendly. The bar downstairs is quite nice too. Free dinner every evening lets you mingle and socialize with other guests at the hostel. I had a great time here, the location was great and just round the... More

Steps away from Town Hall Square (Copenhagen's center)? Check. Awesome bar with cheap drinks? Check. Affordable, yet clean and tidy accommodation? Check. This place is the real deal when it comes to hostels in Copenhagen. Not only are all the fellow travellers friendly, but the rooms are well-lit and clean and the downstairs area has a very cool and hip... More

The lure of the free food is an amazing draw to travelers like me. With Copenhagen being an amazing place but overpriced when it comes to food. Chances are you'll miss out on the free dinner to large groups of working adults and us younger,poor travellers will go hungry (as alternatively you'll be paying upwards of €8 on pizza. Out... More

I had so much fun there! The all-you-can-eat breakfast and the free dinners at 18:30 are totally worth it. The rooms have lots of space and the staff is amazing ; they answer all your questions and help you figure out ways to discover the city and have some fun in the area. Very recommended!
