Large school group when I was there. Overall a good hostel. You will want to purchase the bed sheets because without them it is pretty gross.

Great central location and for the price you pay you have to compromise on people checking in at 2:30am. However friendly service and strong wifi make up the rest.

In general this hostel was good. Only problem: the bunk bed (old and really noisy) and matress (too soft) were extremely uncomfortable!

Not very clean bathrooms. Especially showerroom. In soom rooms you can just open one window a few centimeters. So it gets quiet warm and muggy. Mattresses are saggy

A basic hostel with a great atmosphere. The location was central and the kitchen facilities were nice, but this place can house many people. The best part of this place is how easy it is to meet people. The area is larger enough that one can chill out or party if you desire.

AWESOME PLACE. 66 bed dorm is quiet all night every night, beds are comfortable and clean without buying linens (i never bought any, they're already covered with some fabric stuff)... great location and the staff is very cool, friendly, and helpful. would stay again and again and again.

A very good hostel! I don't really have any complains. The showers were clean, there is a well equipped kitchen, a cozy closed yard. And it is VERY cheap compared to the very central location. I will be coming back! (so sad that its only open 3 or 4 months of the year) The matresses are a little hard though.

Clean hostel, good wifi signal. Each bed has free locker to use, you just need your own padlock. The storage room for luggage is open all time so seems very unsafe to leave your bags there. You have to pay 10 euro more for pillow and bed sheets.

About 15 minute walk from the center of town, really big kitchen and common areas so it was easy to meet people. Staff was super friendly and helpful. Didn't really like the bathrooms or showers though. The showers offered very little privacy and really no area to get dressed afterwards. The beds were very squeaky and sheets were expensive to rent. The place was cheap though, so you get what you pay for

I spent a very good time in this hostel, the people here are really helpful and welcoming, all the facilities are convenient and the area is particularly interesting to go around and visit Copenhagen. The dorm in itself was quite and confortable, despite the bright light early in the morning. All in all a very good value for a fair and small price

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.

not far from the train station, excellent facilities (really neat kitchen, nice gardens). I stayed in the 66 bed dorm and it's surprisingly quiet and comfortable. they have partitions all over the place to give a good degree of privacy. no sockets inside rooms though, so you have to charge your stuff outside but who's to complain at this price?

it is a very nice hostel, you can find different solution with different price and the position is very good.

There were stolen 2 bags when I was there. That was a little bit worrying. Bigger lockers would be good or keycard to the rooms. Showers are a little bit "open". No changing possibility in the shower itself.

It was a good hostel but the matresses were in a very bad conditions also the security was next to 0. Many bags were were stolen and even from the storage but the management has no intention to secure the place.

At first we were worried it would be a loud party hostel, but the staff was great at reigning in any rowdy guests. It was very clean, lights out was well enforced, and we felt comfortable leaving our backpacks there all day, even in the 66-bed dorm facility.

The best of the hostel was the treatment of the staff, always smiling and ready to help you.

Staying in the 66 person dorm I thought I'd get very little sleep, but surprisingly it was very quiet. The staff turns off and on the lights and certain times. While staying there for a short amount of time I talked to many travelers that had their belongings stolen from both the luggage room and their personal lockers. Depending on the time you used a shower/kitchen it was either clean or dirty. All in all, you get what you pay for.
