City Public Hostel
Reviewed August 2, 2010

I went to copenhagen with friends, decided to pick city public hostel as it was cheap. I'v stayed in many hostels and am not a fussy person but this hostel is horrible! we stayed in the 66 bed mixed dorm and you barley have room to breath its so packed. the matress was uncomforable and had stains on it and the blue cover thats on it is even more unclean. there is no where to put your bags except for a tiny locker which you need your own lock for. The space between the beds is ridiculously small and you have to pay for lined/bed sheets. the showers are flilthy and when we rented a towel at reception it looked like one that someone had left there from there holidays. the location is good and the staff are nice but it still dosn't meaure up to the uncleaness of the hostel. i wouoldn't stay here again !

This is a good hostel, the rooms are fine, the beds good, the service and atmosphere spot on. The only thing that did bother me was the complete lack of security (do take a padlock) and that the shower facilities were a little unclean and old. However, for location and price, this is a very good place.

This hostel is extremely well located, a 10 minute walk from the central train station.
The staff are all nice and friendly. Bed linen is not provided, but you can rent it from reception. There is no laundry on-site, but there is one a 5 minute walk away that I used and found good. There is a kitchen which I didn't use very much, it seemed adequate but not particularly well provisioned. WiFi is available in the common area beside reception, but not in the dorms.

I stayed in a six bed female dorm - overall the atmosphere was nice and friendly. In my case, everyone was in bed by between 11 and 1, depending on the night, which suited me just fine - had three great night's sleep. If you wanted to stay up socialising there were plenty of common areas where you could talk to people.

The only issue I had was with cleanliness. One of the sofas in the upstairs common area had bits of food in it, and there was what looked like blood on the floor in the female toilet beside my dorm.

Overall a fine place to stay - not wonderful, but good value for money in Copenhagen, which is possibly the most expensive place I've ever visited.

We had a 3-bed-room, with ensuite bathroom. The hallway was under construction, so kinda dusty and messy out there. But our room was very clean, and nice, but SMALL! Bathroom was also small, but new, light and very good. As a hotel; not to good, but as a hostel, as it is; ok.
We didn't stay long, so have no opinion about staff, breakfast (expensive!) and bar

I have been there three times in three different trips I've made to Copenhagen, so you can imagine that I've actually liked it very much. The staff is very kind and the rooms are quite good. They're comfortable, roomy, clean and cozy. The location is excellent and the value perfect!

The plus points were the location, helpful staff and free BBQ!
The downsides were uncomfortable beds and communal showers.

That's the cheapest Hostel in Copenhagen, very close to the center (10 minutes walking), you can meet a lot of people. But if you don't like sharing room with a lot of unknown people, if you are a maniac of cleanness, if you would have a good breakfast... change place!
