It is a nice place, with an excellent location. You can rent a bike and enjoy the city by reaching any place in a few minutes. The Lounge of this hostel is very colorful and joyful. It has a cozy atmosphere and you can meet people from all over the world. The wifi works very well. Excellent staff! Tiny rooms... More

A lovely stay in this hostel which is positioned in central Copenhagen with Centrum just within 5min walk and Christiansborg just around the corner. Room very clean and a useful helping of plug socket extensions really helps. Showers although could do with a fresher clean up, but done to give individual room privacy and toilets as well which is excellent.... More

The staff are great as are the facilities. There is a small kitchen but it is enough. Dorm rooms did not have enough power points for charging, but you can also charge in the nice bar area downstairs. There is a great happy hour every evening and a free meal (first come, first served) so its easy to get to... More

I have been to many hostel but copenhagen downtown hostel is the best i have been so far, leaving me a very good impression. From the start when I step in to the bed and the bathroom, everything has been above my expectation. The bar at the reception is also a great place to hang out with others.

The staff was great, very friendly and helpful, giving me great practical advice on the town. Location = brilliant, super central. Also, the guys from the free walking tour come and pick you up right at the hostel. Breakfast = yummy, and you can eat as much as you like. Also, if you travel alone, basically you're never alone there,... More

Everything was nice and good, like I expected. It's not my first time to have break at this place and I will for sure come back again. It's always different than previous time, but also always good. Good atmosphere, lot of young people with positive energy and of course clean, well organized and close to center (train station).

I stayed in 2 different hostels while staying in Copenhagen and hands down this was my favorite. It attracted a great crowd and the staff was so friendly. Would definitely stay here next time I'm passing through town

One of the best hostels I've stayed in! The room was basic but that's what I'd expect. Cleaned daily, the bathrooms/toilets were also in good condition. Heating worked very well. We had a room on the 5th floor and there was a lift. Really liked the bar area - good for socialising. The food wasn't the best but it was... More

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.
