The best thing about this hostel is its bar and hangout area. There is free wifi that you can even access across the street. There is no air conditioning, and the rooms are absolutely stifling. We were woken up at 5am by people taking out the trash in the courtyard, and the loud noises carried on until after 7am. The... More

Overall, I enjoyed my stay there. It is definitely the best place to meet new friends and socialize while you are in Copenhagen. The only things I did not very much enjoy was the fact that the rooms are too hot especially on summer, there was neither fan nor AC which makes the room too hot for a comfortable sleep... More

The beds are pretty comfortable, the hostel personel is chill and they have a beautifull bar with beanbaga to sit in the street and chill for ever. Pretty well located although Copenhaguen is a quite small town. The free food at nigth is kind of a scam, its complicated to get some food cause travellerw are waiting like hungry crows.

Copenhagen Downtown Hostel is a great hostel which I enjoyed staying for 2 weeks at! The location of the hostel is great - right in the city and not far from other places out of the city you might want to see (Islands Brygge, Norrebro, Meat packing district), and especially for the cheap price of the rooms! The hostel offers... More

I felt safe, the hostel was clean and I really enjoyed the atmosphere. The hostel made it very easy to meet other travellers: free dinner every night (if you get a table early), different events (I would recommend the free walking tour) and the wifi only works in the lounge in order to encourage people to go down and socialize....

This hostel is adorable and is in the perfect location. It is within walking distance of many attractions. There are cute little cafes and shops all around and people riding bikes everywhere. There are big windows in the rooms with a beautiful view of the Copenhagen skyline. (on the upper floors) There are secure places to leave you personal belongings... More

Rooms and amenities were clean. Great buzz in the downstairs bar particularly during happy hour and when they have live music. Bar closes at 2am each night which means there can be a lot of loud drunk travellers on the street at that time. Location is excellent. Short walk to the town squares. Make sure you check out the Copenhagen... More
