Rooms were clean, kitchen was clean (and awesome) reception was so friendly and helpful. Nice communal areas all over (would be great for a big group). Close enough to the sites and sounds of Copenhagen. Bathrooms need some TLC and would be good if they provided sheets (am beginning to think 'sheets not included' is a scandanavian thing).

Stayed in the 66 bed dorm; you get what you pay for! Must rent sheets or bring a sleeping bag because the mattress covers stink and are prob infrequently laundered. There are only 3 shower stalls for women and they are not the cleanest! Wifi only works in the lounge area. Cubbies are too small to fit a backpack so you need to use the storage lockers in the basement and bring a lock! Not the place for light sleepers or germophobes!

very well situated place, but as the hostel is quite big it might feels a bit anonymous. worst security is not assured: why do the dormitories stay all time opened? some people seem to stay in the hostel only waiting for a chance to steal. 2 poor girls got their wallet stolen, this way...

The hostel was in general very good and clean and the location was excellent. The only major problem I found during my stay was that the windows in the room 5 didn't properly stop the light from coming in. At 7 AM the room was already bright.

Pros: Great location and the staff seemed willing and able to help whenever needed Cons: bare minimum security (no locks on dorm doors?) I caught two men on two different days in the female only dorm going through strangers' belongings, the shower room was pretty filthy, the beds were far from comfortable Overall: probably will never stay here again

Stayed in the 66 bed dorm, it was a lot better than anticipated but the lockers are tiny. Huge kitchen. Very friendly band social hostel.

Excellent stay! I slept way better in that 66 beds dorm than in many other smaller dorms! The beds were comfortable and the small cubicles do a good job at separating you from the others. Wish they offered the linens, but yeah.

Staff not really friendly: no explanation at the beginning of the trip, you have to find everything by yourself. Nothing is free even if you want to use de lockers you have to buy a lock or bring one. the showers are ok but you have no place to change discreetly.

66 bed dorm was a little crazy! but you get a bed, locker and somehow some privacy! The bathrooms are clean and there are many places to meet people. Good location and very clean. The staff were very helpful.

What i mean about average security is that there are no keys and padlocks at all even for the door which was strange but it seems that they have their own way to be trustworthy as we didn't experience any loss of items or insecurity feelings during the night..

Great staff and location. Stayed in the dorm with 66 beds and was pleased to find the cubicles with 4 beds in each.

Kitchen has a good working space, it is very large with multiple fridges (toaster oven too). 66 bed dorm is in a gymnasium with privacy barriers set up every 2 bunks with lockers (bring padlock). Nice showers and chill out area and internet (WiFi) was quick enough for Skype. Yes, would definitely recommend!

they should try to wash their sheets once in a while.

Great place to stay, very fun. Lots of stuff going on all the time and seemed very well organized and clean. Would recommend for a roudier place to stay, but good fun if you are looking to party.

Im fully aware that this is the cheapest hostel around in KPH but honestly as a customer i expected a pillow n a blanket at least, its messy n cold in the dorm rooms and the staff were quite rude too. Couldnt pay with cred card and took me almost an hour to find the place. The hot showers n the kitchen is the only good things free the others you just hv to pay extra n quite a walk from the city center.

Great location and large 64 bed dorm makes it easy to meet people. lights turn on automatically everyday at 9 am.. annoying but it makes sense.

It is cheap for Copenhagen, although expensive if compared to other cities. I read a few trip advisor reviews and was apprehensive about it, but it exceeded my expectations. Expect locker room-style showers and th collective noise of 65 others sleeping around you and you should be fine. Also bring a sleeping bag or your own sheets, heard some complaining that they were extortionate.

I stayed in the 66 bed dorm. The beds are in groups of 4 and each are separated by small walls around. There's not much space for luggage in the dorms. No power points in dorm room. Have to use foyer/common room to charge things. Need to bring linen/sleeping bag. Good facilities in kitchen..wifi didn't work well in kitchen,only foyer&dorms. Staff really helpful and knowledgeable about city. Very clean hostel. It's not a bad hostel overall.
