Property Information:

At City Public Hostel we offer cheap beds and friendly and easygoing atmosphere in the heart of Copenhagen – just 10min. walk from Copenhagen Central Station. You will be staying in the hippest part of Copenhagen – not just to live, but also to shop, eat and nights out. Our hostel is placed just by the trendy and popular Meatpacking District – a creative area with nightlife, galleries and restaurants.

We provide access to a large front lawn for relaxation and a beautiful and cosy 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 fast Wi-Fi throughout the hostel and free luggage room. Our friendly and helpful receptionist are avaliable 24-hours.

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 they are NOT included in the price and it will cost a little money to rent. If you feel like it you are of course more than welcome to do without them as well.

Check-in starts at 13pm - 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.

This is also a perfect place if you travel in groups of any size - we can have groups from 10-100+. You just send an e-mail and we will arrange beds for you in your own private rooms.

Cash only – no credit cards at all, but there are several ATMs close by.

Our Dorms:
66-Bed mixed Dorm
32-/22-Bed mixed Dorm
12-Bed mixed Dorm

    The 66 bed dorm is not bad at all- bring earplugs! Beds were comfortable enough and the lockers right next to the beds were a bonus. The staff is really nice, and here is always somebody around. The added cost for bedding is really expensive however. The kitchen is huge and clean, and there is tons of space inside and outside for hanging out. The wifi is fast, and it's close to the train station.
