The hostel is good. It was quite clean. I like it that the bathroom and toilet is inside the room but they also have common toilet and bath. They have a bar/common area where you can drink and play games. This is good. The disadvantage on this hostel is they do not have Danish speaking staff all the time. Also, luggage cannot be left without a fee. You have to use thlocker. Basically all add ons comes with a fee. Also, some staff are not helpful when questions are asked about copenhagen card, etc

Beds are smaller than other hostels i dont know how many times i hit my head to get in or get out. İn the photos it looks so much better but in reality its not the same. İn my dorm bathrooms sink was broken.There is no locked cabined in the rooms to put your items if you want to lock it you need to pay extra and but like the the towels and shampoo everything that you need is extra here and it is expensive.Staff here is very slow and not friendly.When i came my bed wasnt even ready i waited them to clean the bed . İn copenhagen transportation is very easy to use so location that doesnt matter that much. .i dont recommend here go to others like sleep in heaven those are much better or just anywhere else not gonna come here again.

We had a good time in Copenhagen but the rooms are not great, we spent a reasonable money for a double room, me and my fiancée but when we got there was a bit frustrating. Once again, the location is amazing and the staff are great, but we believe was a bit expensive to have a tiny bedroom that my fiancée was struggling to do her make up due a lack of space. Also talking to another customers we could realize that Netflix or any streaming do not work in any bedroom. Staff said to us they had problems with people stealing the chromecast which is very bad. After spend the whole day exploring the city would be amazing to relax and watch something but we only had 3 channels in Danish 🤣🤣🤣

My trip was a short one and the overall stay was quite pleasant. The access to a restaurant without having to go out and looking for one is a plus. The bedroom, although limited, was enough for my liking and the bed was comfortable.

Fantastic location, 5 minute walk from Nyhavn and the metro. We had a twin en-suite room and it was very clean and quiet. Only downside of the room was the pillows were very thin, and the chrome cast on the tv didn’t work (so nothing too bad). Make sure you don’t rely on the signs listing what is available to buy at reception though- it listed international adapters as available and then when we requested one we were told they didn’t have any and it was too late to get one from another shop. Locker options to keep your bags in was great! All in all would definitely return.
