It was great there were enough toilets around ;-) Would have been nice to be able to use the kitchen before 8.30 am. Also some power sockets near the beds would have been helpful.

City public hostel is centrally located. Its staff are extremely friendly and helpful, and it was a pleasure interacting with them. The wifi works very well and there are some cool places to hang out, both inside and outside. A few strange characters hanging around, and I thought that both the bathrooms and rooms could have had more hooks for hanging things like towels etc. The sinks in the bathrooms could have been a bit cleaner. All in all, a good stay!

We were warmly welcomed when we arrived. The location is superb, 10 minute walk to the train station, and excellent location if you want to experience the nightlife of the meat packing district. The place could have beent cleaner. Things to note, there is no key for the room), there are very limited plugs in the room, renting bedding includes pillow and duvet. Apart from that good hostel

The 66-bed dorm is much better than expected. Surpisingly quiet. The kitchen is nice with well-equipped facilities. But the bathroom is a bit small and lack of privacy.

We stayed here for two nights, one in female room and one in mixed room. Love the whole atmosphere of this hostel, very friendly and easy to approach. With the garden surrounded and couch in the living room, we felt at home!! The staff are also very helpful and accommodating. The sanitary condition of female toilets on second floor has a space to be improved.

You're getting what you pay for, so don't expect too much. 20 min or so walk from the Kobenhavn H, not too bad. I was only here for a crash night after my bus came during the early morning. I might have missed that i have to pay for linens but it was unexpected. if you can stay in the 22 person dorm instead of the 66. Its definitely for people trying to save as much as they can for accomodations.

Place is a bit like a youth center, reception played loud music all night, good kitchen.

Low quality hostel overall, which wasn't exactly what I was expecting. Few showers, no breakfast, linens cost extra, poor wifi, and not accepting credit/debit cards all added up to a sub-par experience.

Way over priced for what you are given and beddings should not cost extra.

I went for the 66-bed dorm and it really was not bad. The overhead lights are out between 11 and 8:30 so you don't have to worry about people turning on the big lights while you are sleeping. I wish there was another fridge because the two available were packed, and I was there during the week, so I can't imagine how it is on weekends in the summer. 10 min from the train station, 15 from tivoli, 20 from the main plaza, and 30 from nyhavn. The showers were annoying, though, with only 3 stalls...

Amazing location in Vesterbro. Nice and friendly staff but bizarre and antisocial common area where people charge their devices in silence. Uncomfortable, noisy beds, sheets/pillow not provided, no locks for lockers, no locks on bedroom doors, decent wifi. *No power outlets next to beds or in room which is incredibly frustrating.* Full, usable kitchen where you can store groceries and cook your own meals. Bathrooms were cleanish. Bring shower shoes. Would not stay here again.

Positives - close to centre, large kitchen, free wifi, lockers, cheap tea and coffee for purchase, board games and book exchange, free maps Negatives - filthy showers, dorms can be accessed by anyone, lack of reading lights and plug sockets, bring your own linen normally means bring a sheet, pillowcase and duvet cover - here you are expected to bring the actual duvet and pillow too.

This hostel is a really nice place. You have to pay additionaly for the bedlinen, blanket and pillow (60DKK) but this is made clear upon arrial and it is your choice if you want to take it. 12- bed room is ok, with it's own kitchen. They have a yard and a garden and big nice kitchen. I really recommend it!

I stayed in 66 bed room, awful...room was just looks like big hall and Just block with partition. Even have to pay for bed sheet and pillow. It was very cheap compare with other hostel but I wont stay there again

The kitchen and the bathrooms were clean, but the common area (dorm for 66 people) wasn't so. Also, as it goes to the final cost, some very basic facilities weren't included in the price. I had to pay 60 krons for a bedset, 30 krons for a special locker, 10 krons for a cup of tea. But aparat from this, it was ok.

If you really want a good night of sleep, then you shouldn't reserve for the 66 beds-dorms. People are totally direspectful. Otherwise, it's a great place.

I think it is one of the best one you can stay in Copenhagen. The staffs are very friendly. The hostel is very close to city center and you can go wherever you want by walking. But security and cleanliness would have been better.
