This hostel is very crowded, rooms are not cozy, but kitchen was ok. Wi-fi signal is very weak and doesn't work in kitchen and room.

The only thing that really disappointed me was that no-one in my party could access the free wi-fi properly. I couldn't access it at all.

The hostel is well located near the central station and just a walk from Tivoli. The staff was very nice and the prices are very good.

Staff was very helpfull. You can pay in euros but the exchange rate is a bit higher (but not too much). The kitchen is fully equiped and the atmosphere is very nice. Good value for the money.

Everything is old, used and broken. The beds make noises. You don't have sheets, even if they say the contrary. Not worth the money you pay it.

Everyone was friendly. Beds were comfortable. It never got too loud. I would definitely stay here again.

The Hostel is well located near the main station, clean and quiet. Big rooms were not as noisy as I expected, so I always slept very well. There is also a very big kitchen where you can prepare your meal and the staff is friendly. The only real problem is that there are very few showers and no complete bathrooms, but just toilets.

Just great, and dont' forget to bring lockers if you sleep in big rooms. Additional fares are applied for nearly everything, froom sheets to pillows, so you'd better bring your own, but the basic per night price is very cheap

Despite how helpful the staff was and how pleasant the atmosphere was the showers were not clean and it is brutal to stay in the 66-person dormitories. Perhaps this was a mistake of my own however to stay in such an absurd dormitory.... Anyhow, if you can surpass the symphony of snoring all else is smooth sailing in the gymnasium of beds.

Simply an embarrassment as a hostel. Brilliant as a money generator. I was in the 66 bed dorm. Pros: Location Cons: It was like a sauna in the room. The lockers were not large enough to fit my bag (carry on size) -- which is unacceptable due to 66 people in the room. There were 3 mens showers for the 100+ guys in the place. The showers were disgusting. There were 2 pans in the kitchen and not enough cookware as a whole. You have to pay for EVERYTHING! Including a PILLOW!! Beds creaked. AWFUL!

The best hostel if you want the cheapest place to sleep in Copenhaguen! The 66 beds dormitory is really fine (I was a bit suspicious before coming), the kitchen is perfect to cook...

Stayed one night in the 66 bed dorm when passing through the city and it was ok but just for one night. I wouldnt stay there any longer.

Very noisy, no control over people talking very loudly in the corridors, even at 12 midnight onwards. The place is too big, hence very crowded. Kitchen space grossly inadequate for the number of people staying there. Mattresses are not disinfected, got bitten by bed bugs. Some people sleep without linen to avoid renting the linen, this probably caused the bed bugs to spread.

It wasnt the cleanest hostel I've been and the staff wasnt the nicest I've met, but their not rude as well. The hostel is well located and you have a couple of supermarkets near the hostel. Overpriced for sure, but after all you're in Copenhaguen.

It took some time to get connection to the wifi.

The hostel is very well located near the main train station. The staff is very helpful and always at your service. I stayed in the 66-beds dorm, which is very big but divided in groups of 4 beds, so you can get your own space. The kitchen is very well equipped and the atmosphere is very nice!
