Copenhagen Downtown Hostel

One of the best hostels I've ever stayed in; clean, comfortable, friendly and great value. Staff were so nice and willing to help with anything; very knowledgable about the city too. It has a typically cosy Scandinavian atmosphere, where guests are encouraged to eat together and make friends. You can also borrow phone chargers, iPads, irons, laptops - just for handing reception your room key! Rooms are tiny but very clean and well looked after. Perfect for backpackers, great for friends too.

We arrived very early in the morning and were caught between a rock and hard place for a place to stay. No connections on the train unless, you paid and we checked this place out. It is more like a hotel and the rates are also. All of Denmark is very expensive so we will not be here long...see the sights and jump back on the train. The staff was great and the bedding that you had to RENT was soft and clean. The food here LOOKS great but we have already spent way to much. I probably would not stay here again only because of price

I stayed here for four nights after arriving in Copenhagen. The hostel has a lively atmosphere as soon as you arrive and everyone seems to be enjoying themselves. The staff was excellent and they will even sit down and have beer with you after they are finished their shift. Both the rooms and bathrooms were clean and I could see that the bathrooms were cleaned well each morning.

I met a great group of people from around the world and I would highly recommend this hostel to everyone.

I was there with my husband and three teens for three days.
Downs: Rooms for 5 is not spacious, there is only one little locker.
Ups: wonderful location, very useful kitchen, very nice and lively bar, which is also reception, nice staff. A boy at the reception speaks a good Italian. (Un ragazzo dello staff parla un buon italiano). Bike rental at a low price, we visited by bike the town, beach, port, the central area, we reached even the Carlsberg factory. Clean bathrooms and showers. Wide basement with many baggage lockers.
Copenhagen is a very beautiful town, bike paths are simply wonderful. The best way to see the town.

Considering this is a budget hostel in a very convenient location, I won't complain about the shower head on top of the toilet seat and the tiny room. The room and the beds were at least clean. One important advice to fellow travellers is not to stay here if you are planning to have an early start the next day as the music form the bar downstairs will be inside your room with all it's glory until about 2 in the morning. Other than this, a nice hostel in a great city.

We stayed only one night after being recommended by a friend. It´s a nice hostel with nice small rooms. If you use the shower you will make the whole bathroom wet but you get what you pay for. We had a nice breakfast, one minus for the musli that already had nuts in it.
Free wifi in the reception and on our room which was just above the bar. A bit loud to 1 am on this Sunday but okay.
The hostel has a nice bar and you can rent bikes in the reception. The staff were okay but could be a bit more awake and service minded.

Room Tip: Rooms over the bar are disturbed by noise.

We enjoyed our stay here. The staff was friendly and helpful, there were free city maps and free iPad rentals while in the lounge area, and the rooms were clean and comfortable (except the beds squeaked some-bring earplugs if that bothers you). The breakfast was basic but good. The prices at the bar were very decent and the lounge was a nice place to hang out in and take in the fun travel atmosphere.

Room Tip: I was in a 4-bed mixed room-the room was very narrow and there wasn't a lot of space for luggage...
