Property Information:

At City Public Hostel we offer cheap beds and friendly and easygoing atmosphere only 10 min. walk from central Copenhagen. City Public Hostel is run by Vesterbro Ungdomsgaard - a well renowned after-school activity center.

If you want your stay to be as cheap as possible, then bring your own bedlinen/sleeping bag, pillow, towel and padlock. We can provide these items, but it will cost a little money. If you feel like it you are of course more than welcome to do without them as well.

We provide access to a large front lawn for relaxation and a backyard where it is possible to barbecue. A good place to meet your fellow travelers is our lobby. Guest are also free to use our large well assorted kitchen to cook and socialize. Free Wi-Fi is available or you can use our computer to go online for a small fee.

Our reception is open 24h and check-in starts at 13.00. Check-out is at 10am. We have no age limit - people of any age are welcome to stay here. As we are an independent hostel we don't require membership of a hostel-club of any sort. We only accept cash - no credit cards at all, but there are several ATMs close by.

The security lockers are free to use if you bring your own padlock and locks can be bought at the reception if needed. Showers are accessible almost all day except for an hour in the morning when they are closed for cleaning.

    The rooms are extremely dirty and insecure. I can't believe that there is no key for the rooms! Plus, bathrooms and showers are very dirty. There is no elevator and stairs are too narrow to carry a bag. It is just not worth paying that much money for such a bad hostel. I spent only 6 hours in there but it is more than enough. Many thanks!!
