Freshly baked break in the morning makes it hard to pass up on breakfast!
Bed design is great with a curtain for each bed however showers were dirty and poor design with others dirty water floating across the 3 stalls. Staff rather unfriendly. I will look for other options on next visit to Copenhagen .
On the whole quite good, the curtains around the bunk beds give you a degree of privacy, which is a nice addition. The showers were pretty basic but they were hot and usable. The hostel is across the road from the central station so if you're just looking for a place to sleep that has a great location then I would recommend it.
This hostel was perfect for me-- just in Copenhagen for a short time so the proximity to the train station (which couldn't be better) was ideal. The curtains on the dorm bunks were awesome-- I don't know why all hostels don't do this!! It feels very private, even when you're sharing a room with six people, and paying such a good price (for Copenhagen...) The place was cute; nice and private toilets, though the showers smelled a bit, they were generally good.
Very good hostel near the central station of Copenaghen. it's very very closed to the center. It's not too big, you can sleep confortably, there is silent in the rooms. The staff is gentle and helpful if you need something. If you want, you can rent bike to see the city! :)
i do not recommend this hostel for anyone ! Rooms are small, bathroom was terrible, internet was bad. What i am need to say else !
Location is great, friendly staff and nice atmosphere. I liked that every bed has curtains in front of it. There are lockers for every bed in the room and some are big if you have a padlock you can use them too but you dont need it generally. There are two toilets which are spacious and very clean, they are not inside the rooms but it is not a big hostel so you can always find a vacant one. By the way, you should try their daily baked pastries, they are delicious -especially the brownie!
Great staff and ambiance. Location adjacent to the central train station, very convenient.
The staff was very friendly and willing to help you with anything! Also I really appreciated the free wifi and that there were lockers in the room for you to keep your belonging. I felt that the hostel was very well managed always with someone at hand to tend to your needs.

Didn't like that there were so few toilets and showers. I think the showers especially need upgrading and generally didn't feel that clean, but that is my only complaint. I thought the layout of the 12 person dorm was great; never felt cramped or that there were so many people in the room. Being able to push bags under the bunks made a huge difference Staff were incredible! So helpful and genuinely friendly. Breakfast is great value for Copenhagen standards; the home baked bread was lovely!

I am traveling around world and this hostel is one of the worst. I payed 320DKK (roughly 50 euros) for one night in trash-like 12 bed-dormitory. Its original price was 220DKK, but this hostel requested additional fee of 100DKK for late check-in, which is almost half price of accomodation! And when I asked the staff to check availability of 1 more night, he said I have to check it tomorrow as well as pay for accomodation. I did wonder why I had to pay 100DKK fee then if I coudn't do anything.
Really nice hostel. Great location, nice common area. But the dorms are really tightly packed. I could smell the breath of the guy below, who was snoring and coughing and spluttering all night.
Copenhagen Backpackers is small, so there's a great atmosphere, coupled with lovely staff, very good facilities and a nice breakfast. The location is excellent (we didn't use any public transport during our time in Copenhagen, except to get from the airport). I particularly liked that each bed was like an individually curtained cubicle, but I unfortunately didn't sleep very well because of the very bright emergency exit light shining into my bed. Otherwise we loved it!
Staff was extremely helpfull and friendly. Notice the 50 kroner linen charge
A good hostel in a great location right next to the train station.
Our stay in this hostel was simply FANTASTIC. It was the first time we choose a huge mixed dorm, and we were a bit worried about facts like privacy and security: all our doubts were destroyed, we felt immediately and incredibly like home. We met fantastic people, and these people made our stay unforgettable as long as the staff. Of course this wonderful and shareful atmosphere was made possible thanks to the staff, and to facts like the large common room, which made easy meeting people!

It was a pretty tiny room for a 6 bed. There were only 2 toilets and 3 showers for the entire hostel- always had to wait to go to the washroom. Had bikes for rent which is nice. Right by Tivoli park, but behind the train station with lots of bums. Doors to room don't lock. And lockers in room were super small! You have to pay extra for bedding, even if you have your own. Curtain hung over ladder to upper bunk, so the girl on the top had a rough time getting up and down..
Yeahhhhh this place is ok. when i arrived i heard an american guy explain to fellow backpackers that this was the best hostel ever, i wanted to slap him. like the staff are great, u can sleep in till 12, breakfast is sweet!! however, it seems to attract a slightly older, more serious crowd... everyone is tiptoeing around like there staying at there grandparents house, bring your knitting needles
Everything about this hostel is warm and welcoming! The staff are excellent, I was going to be in Copenhagen earlier then check in and the staff allowed me to drop my bags off early. Check in was a breeze and the staff are absolutely lovely to chat to! The only concerns are that there are no locks on the door rooms, but everyone is super friendly anyway so there is no concern that your gear can be nicked. Also the shower floods a bit, so bring flip flops! Super clean, super location, super staff
Great place right of the train station. Super chill vibe and great common area to relax and breathe easy in after a long day touring the city. Great communal vibe in the lobby, so look forward to making other friends on your travels.
