I would absolutly recommend this hostel. Only one drawback: as the reception is in the bar, it was a bit too loud music to talk to the receptionist at arraval a bit late. But very friendly people both working and staying there.

The positives - the staff and atmosphere were fantastic. A real hub of cultures and fun especially in the evening. The location is perfect, within walking distance of everything you want to see or do. Lockers available to hire very cheaply. The linen was very clean and fresh and towels were supplied. Breakfast looked good although we didnt eat. The... More

10-15 mins walk from the train station if you are coming from the airport. Also 10 mins walk going to central railway station if you are travelling by train or bus outside copenhagen. The place is quite pack of people coming from all places. Quite a melting pot. Receptionists were also friendly.

Really a cool place to stay! Very friendly staff, clean, cozy and lively atmosphere. Close to the train station and well situated to go sight-seeing through the town by foot. If you arrive before check-in time, you can rent a spacious locker by hour or day, if you have a shared dorm, there are lockers under the bed (bring your... More

We stopped here 2 nights this week and were placed in a room facing onto the street. The bar across the road didn't close until after 5am and was very loud so didn't get much sleep on either night. Copenhagen was also experiencing a heat wave so the room was like a sauna. If I was to stay again I... More

We stayed in this hostel during.March for two days. The place has a really nice vibe, and the atmosphere is actually cool. The kitchen that they provide is pretty small, and the space that you eat is combined with the bar. They provided a free happy hour dinner every night, but was not really enough for everybody.The gesture was really... More

Giving two stars because the staff was friendly, the room was pretty clean, and it has a terrific location. But if you're looking for a good nights sleep this is not the place for you. Stayed in a three person private with bathroom. The bathroom was the actual shower - as in the shower head was just on the ceiling... More

I stayed at the hostel with my friend for three nights and enjoyed my stay in there. We arrived early and left late but we still could leave our luggage to luggage room downstairs. Also some rooms have smaller personal lockers. The shared bathrooms were cleaned like every hour, however prepare to wait in queue there on the morning. Downstairs... More

Pretty nice place but not suitable for families. We could not sleep both nights we stayed because of the ongoing loud party downstairs. And the price was as for a three star hotel. The room we had was not very well cleaned and caused allergy problems. The staff was very nice though and very international.

Staying in Indre By (Inner City)

Neighborhood Profile
Indre By (Inner City)
This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its blend of charming old buildings and bold new architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which consists of three buildings, two of which are new and situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and venues of the inner city and its surrounding neighborhoods, are alive all year round with everything from jazz festivals to outdoor ice skating rinks and parachuting at the lakes right in the center of the city. This compact area boasts beautiful old castles, tranquil parks, and bustling squares where you can always find a bench to stretch out your legs whenever you need a break.
