It's almost impossible NOT to meet people here - as the bar, breakfast and games room are always lively. Live music, cultural walking tours, drinking games, weekly specials and daily cheap dinners make this suitable for any style of backpacker. The rooms are great, clean and comfortable. Showers are pretty good, but frequently occupied in late morning, so get in...

Stayed at this hostel with a friend for 4 nights. Excellent location as close to lots of bars, restaurants and the train station. Took us a while to check in on arrival as the reception is poorly placed by the busy bar and lounge area of the hostel. However the staff were friendly enough and helped us out when we...

Stayed two nights in a 4-bed mixed dorm. Personally, I was a bit apprehensive after reading some reviews here but: The positives are mainly the location. It is easy to get to and from the airport, shops, restaurants and the main sights of Denmark's capital. In fact, two of the city's biggest FREE walking tours start from the hostel daily...

We stayed on the 5th floor for 4 nights which was decent. There were about 5 shower rooms, 3 of which came with a toilet if I'm not mistaken. It's not a bad hostel but if you plan to cook during your stay, just note that the kitchen is extremely tiny. The hostel is located 7mins from the Christianborg Palace,...

The biggest reason I enjoyed staying in Copenhagen Downtown Hostel is the frendly, helpful but not tacky staff! Very very minor flows in the room (like a broken wheel on the heater) but nothing that can bother you. The pizza is very tasty and cheap for Copenhagen standards. For hostel guests discount on some drinks. I will recommend to every...

From the beginning I was checking in late and was very tired, the front desk is in the middle of the breakfast room/bar/ lobby or whatever it is, and the two guys running the bar were also responsible for running the front desk. They saw me come in, and they both looked at me like I had two heads when...

I was staying in 8-bed room, it had enough space, and everything was clean, there was only one downside and that is 3 bathrooms on entire floor, but eventually that wasn't a problem as I expected. Common area is really nice and cozy, they have fully equipped kitchen which you can use, staff is nice and helpfull. If you book...

You really get an excellent value for what you've paid, I booked through the official site and I paid 96 euro's for 4 nights of accommodation with breakfast, shared dinner & a towel rental. the bar/ reception and rooms are in two seperated buildings, the bar is full everyday, easy to socialize with people, but when you're tired you can...

A cab brought me there to rent the last bed they had for the night. Not having internet access on my cell phone they loaned me a tablet to reserve a room. I loved the staff and had a great time with the table of people I sat down with after checking in. They may have around 10 tables in...

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.
