“You have to be young and then you'll have fun”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2007

First time in Copenhagen, first time in a dorm ... and everything was cool. The staff is very kind and funny and we enjoyed our stay so much. Baths and showers are clean, there's a huge kitchen and there's a beautiful garden in the front and in the backyard there's also the possibility to light up a warm fire place.

I recently visited Vesterboro Udomesgade or known in english City Public Hostel. While i may have slept in a room with over 60 people and i was kept awake by the creaking of the beds and the snoring and the people [---] (that was generaly pretty quiet though) this place was really cool. They had a kitchen and fridge which i cooked all my meals with and it is located next door to a mueseum and a very cheap grocery store. There was nice lounge areas and lots of interesting people coming and going. Overall i found that the people who worked there were friendly and querky if you were on the same cynical level that they were. My least favorite part was that you had to re reserve your bed every morning at 11. While i may not have been able to sleep all that well there was a ton of fun to be had to make you tired and its the only hostel in copenhaagen that is never full

I stayed here in June 2002. This is more like an army camp than a youth hostel. I stayed in a room with about 35 beds, though my friend was in a room with over 60 beds! The larger room resembles an army camp or immigration centre. As you can imagine, it is hard to sleep when there are so many people in 1 room. I would never stay here again and I'd not recommend it to anyone! Try to avoid it.... I had no choice as this was the only hostel with space after the Roskilde music festival.
