We loved staying here! Thank you for everything. Would definitely recommend to others!

The hostel is great in terms on location and atmosphere. The staff were so nice, specially the bar manager Luca. The service is good, as the hostels, and it is open 24 hours. Nevertheless, two friends were stole in their own room during the weekend, and I couldn't see the hostel really worried about it. On Saturday night someone stuck the toilet, that was really disgusting, and the cleaning is more worried about brushing the floor and leaving everything apparently "nice". No towels included.

Staff didn't know what was happening, kept giving the same beds away, bunks were broken and very squeaky, not enough bathrooms, there was a line in the morning to use the toilets and showers

Bad: Bathrms could definitely do w some ventilation. A spritz of air freshener every hr doesn't really count as cleaning & definitely need separate toilets in the AM when people want showers. Staff smoking at the entrance is very unpleasant when you walk out the door also Good: Owner v friendly & helpful & trying to improve the facilities. Free dinner a great way to meet people & the chef is very sweet & does such a good job to feed 40 people on time every nt (even when some aren't from hostel)

This hostel was very well maintained and very clean. The bar downstairs was excellent and had a good atmosphere. The staff were helpful and friendly. The location is excellent, within walking distance of most of central Copenhagen. However, the rooms were quite small and there seemed to be a lack of shared bathrooms available compared to the number of rooms. There were no lockers in the rooms either.

This hostel was a great place to meet people of you are traveling alone. The rooms (10 person) were a good size however it did get very hot at night. Some of the staff was more helpful than others.

The staff is really amazing. The hostel is too hype but not much is delivered. I stayed in a 4 bedroom room that looked much more like a corridor. The room was too small, no lockers inside (if u want one gotta pay extra for a locker downstairs) or places to put anything.

Great hostel. The bar is a social place at night. Would definitely stay again.

Certain booking websites like hostelworld blocked on their internet. No lockers in rooms and long lines at the bathroom.

Great hostel with a cool bar at the lobby to chill out and meet new people. Good location too so you can easily walk to the metro or to the shopping street. Only downside was that they were undergoing renovations so it was kinda messy in the locker rooms in the basement, and somehow our room

The dorm was very small and cramped, and the walls are quite thin although overall very quiet at night. Make sure to shower early or at off-times as there are only 2 for the entire floor. Having said that, the main area is brilliant to hang out in and meet new people with a great atmosphere. Lots of space, very relaxed and friendly vibe. Free dinners are simple but great if you're on a budget. The staff are also friendly and helpful.

The place to be in Copenhagen! Very close to all mayor attractions such as the National Museum, Christianshavn, Storget Street and Indre By. Nice bar with happy hour and heated smoking terrace. Friendly and helpful stuff.

This hostel was so awesome. Very friendly people, excellent and rowdy happy hour, and all in all the best time I have had in Copenhagen. The hostel's bar was better than most bars downtown. Good place to meet people, especially girls, it seemed. Everything was clean and orderly and while people definitely are here to party, there were places to chill out at, too. And free dinner was great! Thank you so much, Tara and everyone at Copenhagen Downtown!

The Copenhagen Downtown Hostel is an excellent choice. I really enjoyed my stay there. Not only were the room and the bathrooms very clean but also the nice and friendly atmosphere of the launch/entrance area was really comfortable. You can chill or meet people there or in the kitchen area - especially nice when you travel alone. I didn't stay for the weekend but during the week the noise level is really low.

Cool atmosphere, there was always many people in the hostel's bar, staff was really nice and helpful. They have bike's rental, which is really helpful if we want to see all Copenhagen quicker. Also I really loved happy hours and free dinner, which was delicious!

We came here on a whim after our friend had booked us into another hostel for one night instead of 2. The staff were all super friendly, charming and wiling to oblige any request we had and informed us of the free meal at 18:30 and the free wifi (which went down a treat) The highlight for me was the bar area. A large space where travellers and tourists alike could meet, chat and start their night in Copenhagen. What a weekend. Highly reccomend!
