Decent facilities, cheap and close to the train station. Big dorms.


71%

The hostel was within walking distance to the train station. The WiFi worked fairly well in the lobby area, but not always in the rooms. The staff were friendly and helpful. The showers weren't exactly the cleanest, but weren't the worst I've seen. There are no outlets in the dorm rooms, but you can leave your phone/charger at the front desk to be charged. Bring a lock/linens or purchase them at the front desk.

I recommend this place; it's a great value. Good location in Vesterbro, only about 10 min walk from central station. It has all you need as a backpacker: wifi, an excellent kitchen, patio, sitting areas, lockers if you need them. And the staff is very friendly and helpful. As long as you're okay with sleeping in a room with potentially dozens of other people (if you choose a big dorm), this is a solid choice when you're in Copenhagen.

The location of the hostel is perfect and it's only 10 mins walk from the train station. The atmosphere of the hostel was excellent and travellers around were friendly and talkative.

Value for money is okay. It has a great kitchen and location (near the railway station). Not the nicest rooms, but considering it is by far cheaper than any other option, its okay.

Cheapest place I could find in Copenhagen. The 66bed dorm feels like you're in an office with cubicals everywhere. Beds are average and squeeky. Lots of snorers.. Kitchen was brilliant, staff were great, good showers, good location. It's shared space with a youth club so expect heaps of kids running around. Was a good place to meet people and experience Copenhagen!

Very poor in facilities and cosyness, not the prettiest hostel I have been in, but it's bearable for a couple of nights (I was there on Interrail, having a break in Copenhagen before heading up to Lapland in a tent, so I definitely do not have high standards)

sleeping bags are allowed? i didnt know that... i think, for hygienic reasons it should be forbidden. i brought my own linen, but there was already sand on the mattress.

I think the hostel needs to be hard on people coming into rooms and drinking. We paid as much money as the other people but we got no sleep! and had to put up with drunken people and drinking in the room. This is very unfair for us. keep reception open. what's with the half hour when you can't get served. would not recommend. People who are in the kitchen should be there to eat not drink all night and put those who want to eat be forced to stand up and eat while they play cards etc.

Security here was odd -- the bedroom doors don't lock; only the main door. Bathrooms were slightly dirty and smelled somewhat unpleasant. Staff was friendly. Location was fine. I ended up staying here because I could not book a higher rated hostel on a Saturday night.

The hostel was nice, with a large kitchen and a nice garden with BBQ.


63%

On a positive note the staff were very helpful and friendly. Otherwise it is a very basic hostel with serious internet connection issues, way too many people for a tiny common area with only a few power outlets.

This hostel is great if you want to stay close to central copenhagen and want walking distance to all the tourist sites. I slept in the 60- bed dorm and I had no problem sleeping, its quiet and comfortable!

Very clean. Free lockers if you bring your own locks. Easy walking distance to everything in the city. Bit expensive for the accommodations. Showers were reasonable, but it's pretty likely someone will walk in on you. Can't beat location and the staff is very friendly. They only accept cash, but there is an atm nearby.

very good hostel if you are looking just a place to sleep. Everything is clean: kitchen, shower room... Good staff. The only problem could be when you are sleeping and a guy is snoring >< Very very near to the train station

The 66 bed dorm is actually not nearly as noisy or crowded as you'd think. Awful common area but the hostel is fine

It would have been nice to have a window in the sleeping room (22 people)
