Before we stayed here we didn't have a lot experience with hostels. We stayed here and really enjoyed it. We had booked a double private room, which they didn't have available when we checked in. They gave us a 4 bed all to ourselves. Bar area is very nice.

Stayed: June 2013, traveled as a couple

Since hotels are really expensive in Copenhagen, this hostel helped me a lot to reduce my trip fee. It's clean, friendly, and cozy place. This is one of my best hostel in the world I've ever been.

Booked a private double and was very pleased with how clean the room and bathroom were. The location is great, about a 5 minute walk from the metro. Huge common area with pool tables and couches, beer was wicked expensive but there are tons of bars right around the corner that are more reasonable.

Room Tip: Had a room facing the street which was quite noisy between construction and traffic.

Hi Kris C
Thanks for staying with us. Happy to hear that you enjoyed your private double. We do like to keep it clean :) Our location makes it easy to explore the city, on foot, by bicycle or by public transport. The common area is great to relax in, and the beer prices are competitive with the neighbourhood bars, plus we have happy hour twice a day. Thanks and hope to see you next time.

Never stayed in a hostel before but this one was recommended by a friend. Was really impressed. We shared a private room for 4. Everything was clean and the location was superb. Near the sites and the bars. It was a little basic, but excellent value for money. I'd recommend for anyone looking for a budget hotel

We stayed for two nights as a family. Nice quiet room with all we needed. Useful lockers under the beds. We enjoyed the breakfasts. Good location & easy to get to from the airport. Walking distance to many sights I would recommend it. Friendly staff.

I've been traveling for a month already in several places of Europe and this has been the best hostel i've been to so far. The location is great, very close from the city center and a metro station if you're coming from the airport. The rooms are very good and the bes very comfortable. The common area is huge and it has great places to seat, bar, pool table, Dj, free computer and a great athmosphere. Also it has a big outdoor area that's very comfortable. The only thing you must note is that the breakfast is not included nor the luggage lockers for the check-in or out day, and that the price is higher than other cities, but it's Copenhagen! Don't really know if you'll find anything much cheaper. I fully recommend it... I'd certainly come back!

We booked a private double room for our three day trip to Copenhagen and it was a great choice. The room itself was quite spacious & clean featuring a very comfy double bed, large windows overlooking an interior garden and with a nice view of the surroundings. As we traveled in September, there was a lot of light (outside until 22.00 hrs) and it was very nice to stay in bed and witness the sunset over the surrounding rooftops.

Copenhagen itself is not a very big city, but nonetheless the location of the hotel/hostel is very central. You're footsteps away from Nyhavn which is basically its entertainment district and a very nice place to stroll, eat or relax.

Breakfast wasn't that great(diluted orange juice, cheap salami & not very appealing croissants) so we chose instead to have some pastry and coffees outside the hotel, in various coffee-shops, as the city has a lot of interesting places to offer (such as Lagkagehuset for instance where you can find a vast array of sandwiches, sweets, coffees, teas & others).

As others have said before me, the reception is surrounded by lounges, a pool table, a painting area, conference rooms etc. They always had nice music playing in the loudspeakers and generally there's a very relaxed atmosphere.

I would choose it again if I were to travel to Copenhagen and I would definitely recommend it to others as it offers good value for money, which is great especially for a country that isn't famous for being cheap :-)

Room Tip: Rooms on higher floors have nicer views :-)
