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

A very lively and noisy hostel ideally situated just off the Stroget main shopping street. Reception, bar, lounge(!) and dining room are all together. Very busy, very lively hostel. Breakfast was plentiful, good choice, all you can eat, reasonably priced. Free dinner in the evening (if you got there early enough) was OK and a great opportunity to meet people.... More

The location in great, staff are so friendly, rooms and restrooms are very clean and wifi connection works very well. The breakfast is good, but a bit expensive. Bar is very good! Incredible place to make new friends and have fun with old ones. Some nights you can have a free dinner! My only point is that we don't have... More

True to the name, this hostel IS incredibly well-located. Right outside the door are all the main downtown attractions, not to mention metro stops (well-connected to airport), the long pedestrian street and TONS of cute cafes, bakeries and restaurants. However, be aware that this is a very social, party hostel and WILL be loud on Friday and Saturday night (if... More

Got lost getting there from the train station, when arrived, the atmosphere was great. Rooms here ok, staff where friendly and the wifi connection was ok too. Came there in the winter so it was pretty cold at night.

Staying at a hostel with kids is always a gamble, this time we hit a jackpot. Clean room, safe atmosphere, über-helpful staff. Though, one can probably take the most out of the stay when travelling alone/with adults as the bar and the lads in the reception area are the perfect place fo making new friends. Do recommend, will return :-)

I started out a month-long solo trip to Europe with this hostel, and none of my other hostels got better than this one! The way the staff has activities set up and dinners included in the price followed by a happy hour was absolutely ideal for meeting other travelers. Each night I met tons of new friends at dinner and... More

We stayed at this hostel for three nights in January in a 4 bed dorm. The room was small and we barely had enough space to put our luggage. There are only 3 toilettes for the entire floor and the showers were freezing-no heating there(?).However, the staff is really friendly and the hostel has its own bar which is nice... More
