Hostelworld says:

Copenhagen Downtown Hostel was rated the best in Denmark at the 2012 and 2014 Hoscars, and it's easy to see why. They're centrally located, just between Christiansborg Palace and the Tivoli gardens, within walking distance of Kastellet, the Little Mermaid and Freetown Christiania. Many Hostelworld guests have said 'it's probably the best value for price you will without leaving the central area'. We like that this clean hostel loans out hair dryers, laptops and iPads. The onsite bar and cafe has games and a daily happy hour.

Property Information:

Our hostel was a Hoscar winner for Best Hostel In Denmark 2014 and is the only hostel in the downtown area which is part of of Europe's Famous Hostels.

We have free linen, laundry facilities and free Wi-Fi and iPad rental!

    I think what puts us ahead of the rest is that we're the real backpackers' in town, made by travellers for travellers. We want you to experience the real Denmark, its people, its humor and its personality. I believe that this place is the expression of a hostel how should be all around the world - full of magic, activities, livable common areas and crazy people that give this place an enjoyable and fun atmosphere.
    The common area features a Scandinavian retro design with recycled wooden floors from old Copenhagen apartments used for the tables and benches, plus a lot of bright colors, wall maps, and other design features to make the area warm and welcoming.
    There's lots to do in this area but I definitely recommend visitng Christiania - the Freetown - a unique place occupied/squatted in 1971 and now a community, where people live and chill out. Furthermore, the place has grown with bars, cafés, restaurants, concert places, art and has its own very peculiar atmosphere.
    If noticed in advance, we can provide all kinds of food/drinks for special needs, such as gluten-free bread. Lactose free milk (soya drink) is always in stock.

    There were not enough toilets/showers on each floor (for those people without en suite facilities). The website misrepresents the free dinner advertised. I went down to dinner at 5:30pm (for 6:30pm meal) and was told that I could not eat the group dinner because all of the spots were taken. This is false advertising and decreases the value for money that I got for staying at this hostel.
