my stay in Copenhagen was the only my 2nd stay in a hostel and they have set the standard very high for others. It was part of a 3 city bike tour including Amsterdam and Berlin. The hostel has great staff, very friendly, clean rooms, laundry facilities and a great bar. Breakfast is a good selection also

Nice hostel with friendly staff and perfect location in the center of Copenhagen. My boyfriend and me stayed in a double room. It was small, but clean for being a hostel and the beds were made when we arrived. The bar by the reception offers nice prices and great atmosphere. Located within walking distance from the central station.

We booked into this hostel after reading positive reviews on here. Upon arrival we were told that the room had been overbooked and we didn't have space. We were told that it wasn't their fault and was the fault of famous hostels website "it's not your fault but it's not ours either". We were told they had tried to contact... More

If you are looking for a place to rest, take a shower and sleep, after your whole long day in Copenhagen, this hostel is definitely not the place for you, and I have some good reasons for that. 1. The wall, door and window are not really sound-proof, they are simply useless. Whenever someone walk past your room in your... More

Rooms/Facilities -I was in a 4-person dorm which was very small, but the beds were clean and comfortable. Downside is there are no lock boxes in the room and it costs 35DKK per day to rent a locker. Clean bathrooms and showers but not enough of them! Shower at night because otherwise you will wait in the morning. Bar -... More

Copenhagen Downtown Hostel is absolutely incredible. As a solo traveler, the downstairs bar made it so easy to meet new people. The free dinner was great considering how expensive it is to eat in Copenhagen. The rooms were clean and the bathrooms are cleaned every hour. The hostel is quite loud, but it is manageable. I would definitely stay here... More

This hostel has everything you need. Excellent location. 5 minute walk from metro stop direct from the airport, awesome common area to meet people (as i was traveling solo) which has a bar, cafe, food, free use of ipads, great wifi throughout, free dinner everyday (but be there on time), heaps of cafes, restaurants and shopping within easy walking distance....

Friendly staff, cute bar/restaurant area, breakfast is not included clean and safe! Almost too big to foster a welcoming social atmosphere, but very nice staff and cool decor. Close to the station, close to city center, overall a very good location.

Went there with some friends and stayed for 3 nights. It was our most expensive stay but also the best. The atmosphere and the people are what makes this place this good. Everyone talked to everyone so meeting new friends didn't take more than 5 minutes. People that aren't from the hostel come there for the great atmosphere. There were... More

Perhaps the most significant selling-point of this hostel is the location. It's in a prime spot, ideally placed for exploring in all directions and a short walk from the central station. If you want to take in the shops, the local attractions, Christianshavn and also have the flexibility to explore the bars and restaurants of Vesterbro and Nørrebro, you'll struggle... More
