Very uncomfortable beds, no pillows, sheets etc (you have to buy them), staff was ok. The toilets were dirty and smelled. The kitchen is large and well equipped. Good location near the central station. All in all, nothing special.


Add 5 Euros to have bed sheets otherwise expect bedbugs. The kitchen is huge, but the common area to work on you computer is too crammed. Location is great and Wifi worked well.


Security is a big question!!! there are no locks on door and any one can just get in to the rooms!!! i stayed in 12 bed dorm, the room was really dirty and it smells bad!


We stayed in the 60 bed dorm, which was pretty much as expected. The kitchen is very well equipped, but is often so dirty that it is frustrating to use. Responsibility for cleaning dishes could be enforced better. The hot water in the showers runs out during peak usage and there is absolutely nowhere to put clothes or towels unless your comfortable dressing in front of everyone. Even a hook or two would be nice. Each bedding item is charged separately, including sheets, pillows, and blankets


Very helpfull information disk/staff, and the cheapest place we have found to stay at in Copenhagen. We did have an uncomfortable experience with a really temperamental guest that had stayed there for two month. Also, we had the impression, from the online website, that if you brought your own sheets then pillows and duvé would be for free to borrow, which turned out not to be the case. Bathrooms and kitchen were really clean, and with a lot equipment in the kitchen, free to use.

+ Nice place to stay on a cheap budget, They have big lockers so you can fit your backpack in them and lock it up with a padlock, + Very lively atmosphere, you meet all kinds of different people and everyone is laid back - Extra costs for sheets and towels.


the big room were not noisy that i imagine, the atmosphere is really great, there a great kitchen, a backyard and foreyard.it is great place.


We were in a huge room but it was not bad at all. It is like many rooms for 4 people seperated from the others. However, the showers were not so great and the staff was stressed and not always there..


I stayed at the 66-bed room, and each bed costs like 18 euros, and that they don't provide beddings that I don't understand. They make loads of money, it'll be super nice if they start doing so from next summer. Kitchen is really good.


I really enjoyed my time in that lovely hostel. I recommend that hostel for backpackers who like to safe money and be in a nice atmosphere to meet new people. For my next Copenhagen-Trip I would choose the same hostel again. :-)


I've been there for three nights in three different rooms coz it was full those days And i was travelling with two friends. The 66-bed bedroom was the biggest surprise coz it s not that bad afterall , it was even better than the 22-bed room! In general the atmosphere is good and relaxed, with sofas and tables outside where you can meet other travellers. The staff is really nice and helpful. It could have been cleaner in the showers. The position is quite good , not far from the central station.


I was charged for every single thing, even things one would expect to be a part of accommodation such as a pillow, a duvet, towel and so on. I was very disappointed. One of the staff was rude but the other was very helpful, despite being a quite person. I have a very mixed impression from that hostel. It's one of the cheapest places in CPS, BUT if I knew I will be charged for the bedding, I would have chosen anoter place to stay, perhaps cheaper. But it's in a quiet location, paradoxally.


Great place to stay--even the 66-person dorm feels relatively private, because they have the beds divided into cubicles of 4, people are friendly and courteous, the bathrooms are clean, and the location is convenient to the main train station. Internet works pretty decently compared to other European hostels--it reaches to the dorms.


Honestly, the only reason I would ever stay here is because I needed a one night cheap accommodation in Copenhagen. It wasn't awful but there was nothing good about it. Beds were cramped, security was lacking, showers were bad, staff was pretty rude. Had to pay extra for sheets etc. The one good thing was the location and the kitchen. If all you need is a bed this is the cheapest you'll find but if you have higher expectations go elsewhere.


I needed a place to crash for one night, and it was the best choice for that. Copenhagen is very expensive, this hostel makes in possible to spend a night without breaking the bank. Besides that it is nothing to write home about.


Staff are extremely helpful. The lower beds don't have a lot of headroom, but overall are okay. Lots of open public spaces lead to a relaxed atmosphere.


The staff are definitely the highlight of this place, the rooms were a bit full on with so many people and of course bedding costs extra. There are no powerpoints or wifi in the room which was a bit inconvenient if you want to charge your phone as you have to do it behind the desk or in common room. It was in a good spot though and again staff awesome :)


Stayed in the suprisingly quiet 66 bed dorm. Bads were a bit crappy. The generaly ok stay in the was overshadowed by being woken up by the staff to check out even though I was booked for another night... followed by being marched to the reception, waiting in my underwear as theywent about their buisness, and getting a completelyreaction when they reliazed they were indeed mistaken.
