After a long drive up from Germany, we wanted a stop over in Denmark before catching the ferry to the Faroe Islands. My first impression was pleasant surprise, the hostel rooms are set in a lovely location surrounded by woods and set in a secluded enclave with a big garden. The reception and breakfast room are set Ina building with... More

Our family stayed in this hostel for 2 nights. It was the 2nd time we stayed in hostel on trip outside our hometown. The first hostel we stayed was in Germany which was well equipped and of reasonable price. Probably due to the high season, hotels in Aarhus were either exceptionally expensive or sold out. We finally picked this hostel... More

My friend and I stayed in Danhostel Aarhus for 2 nights in March 2014. Whilst we found the hostel to be extremely clean and located in a nice woodland there were a number of issues and instances that left us dissatisfied with our experience overall: 1. The Wifi signal in our bedroom (nr. 23) was non-existent - we could only... More

It's a fantastic location in the woods, walkable to Aarhus centre or get the bus. Only a few hundred meters to the beach (nude bathing available but optional!) - watch for jellyfish if you're swimming further out. The rooms are basic and we had some noise from neighbouring rooms/people outside. However, 4 bed (2 bunks) room economical for a family.... More

I stayed in this hostel with my teenagers and one of their friends. The hostel is in a beautiful location and the grounds are very pretty. The staff was very friendly. The room was fairly clean, but the beds were uncomfortable and the room had a very peculiar smell. Also, the hostel is very noisy. The doors to the rooms... More

The Danhostel is situated a bit outside the centre of Aarhus, which is by far compensated by its surroundings: a beautiful green forest, where you can go for nature walks (nearby the sea as well), mountainbiking or sit around the campfire. The building is an old ballroom, it is in this room with high ceilings that you can have breakfast.... More

Placed merely 15 minutes walk from the city centre of Århus, still deep in the middle of the forest, with 5 minute walk to the beach, this is location at it's best. Nice clean rooms, for a hostel it's close to luxury to be able to get a 4 bed family room with your own TV and bathroom. We were... More

As one might expect of a Danhostel, Aarhus Vandrehjem is superclean and bright. Also, as might be expected, the food is great, breakfast is a bargain and the staff are lovely. In addition, it is in the city and also located in a forest! The main building dates back to 1869 (but has been remodelled and is all bright and... More

My family and I traveled to Arhus in August 2012 and stayed at the Danhostel there. The hostel had been updated since I last stayed there ten years ago, and the rooms have been modernized. The family rooms where we stayed each had their own private outdoor space, which was really nice during the evenings when we sat out and... More

This hostel is located in a beautiful old building - used to be a dance palace in the 1800's, apparently - in a fairytale forest North of central Aarhus. The location is great, with the beach just a short walk down the road, and lots of nice trails in the forest. Plenty of buses to central Aarhus ten minutes walk... More
