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.

Our Dorms:

66-bed mixed Dorm

22-bed mixed Dorms

12-bed mixed Dorms

10- / 6-bed single-sex Dorms


We can provide special price for groups (9+). Please contact us by mail or fill out the form on our website.

    Each bunk had their own locker you needed a padlock for. Sleeping in the 66 bed dorm was a much better experience that I expected. Sheets cost 60dkk and I slept without them, but I can recommend them. Wi-fi worked in the whole 66 dorm and the lobby very well and was quite fast. Showers were functional and warm. Overall a great experience for cheap, one-night stay in Copenhagen.
