Such friendly staff, they always have a smile for you, no matter how busy the reception is! Breakfast is awesome and the whole place has a friendly, relaxed atmosphere

There were no lockers in the dorm. Apparently Copenhagen is so safe that this is not necessary. However, it would have been nice to have some storage space in the room.

There was no hot water for the showers on 2 of the 3 mornings of our stay. Our room was broken into while we were sleeping and 4 mobile phones and a watch were stolen.

Fantastic place to stay right in the place you want to be. the 4 bed female dorm (thanks for having a female dorm!) was nice with big windows. I added extra blanket to mattress and it was fine. This dorm is tight with little space for stuff, no dressers or desk, only the 4 beds, so you need to keep stuff under the bed unless you have the corner by window, down bed, then you can use that corner. The hostel itself is just fantastic. The staff are great. There is a wonderful full kitchen!

Amazing staff and wonderful atmosphere in the bar/dining area. The free communal meals at night are a great idea and the bar has some of the cheapest drinks in town. A great place to go even if you are not staying at the hostel! Only issue is that there were 2 showers per floor to accommodate 30+ people. This caused long lines. But besides that, an awesome place!

Amazing hostel! Lovely staff, great atmosphere on the bar (there are always a lot of interesting and fun people hanging there, also full of people having a drink at night). Wanted to try the free dinner and free walking tour but couldn't make it on time. No curfew, close to everything in the city, could do everything by foot. Great beds, rooms and bathrooms very clean. Can't think of anything bad about the hostel! It seems a bit pricy, but it's average for the city.

Copenhagen Downtown Hostel has a great location! The free dinners are great and the bar is fun - very easy to meet people at this hostel and to explore Copenhagen from. The staff is also friendly and helpful. My only complaint is the limited number of bathrooms available (which can cause some waiting times in the morning).

Great hostel to party and socialise with other travellers. They run a pub business alongside with the hostel. they are two separate business. so do not expect to drink your own vodka in there. they will steal it from you and not give it back. they justify that by saying it is a pub and not a hostel. overall I had fun despite being robbed of my vodka. :-)

Overall I had a great experience at the hostel. The staff was welcoming and knew a lot about Copenhagen. It was a fun atmosphere and the rooms were acceptable. The only problem I had was that the showers were lukewarm at best. I guess that's what happens when you have so many people staying there!

Location was superb. Cold showers. No lockers in rooms. Took forever to be served by reception but staff were very very friendly just under the pump as it was Easter. Breakfast spread was great but a little pricey... but that's Copenhagen for you. You're better off going to a bakery and having the best pastries you've ever tasted. Rooms were noisy and not sound proof. Bathrooms were a little messy. Honestly if you're an independent traveller like myself it's probably not for you.

Great staff, lots of people from all around the world enjoying it all day and until late night. Party, fun, beers, friendships!! Strongly reccomended!!

A bit pricy. The bathroom were kinda gross though, and wifi wasn't the best... but don't let it turn you off. It was very nice place with amazing staff (ps use up that happy hour to buy all your drinks)

Great vibe in the bar all the time and super easy to meet people if your willing to sit down and say hello! Room was fine, bathrooms a little dirty unless you are up early. Would stay again

I loved the free dinner because it was nice to meet people and had a great conversations. Also the happy hour drink is just fantastic! The location is so great that it made me easy to go around the city. As well very near to the central train station which it makes really easy going to the airport or to Sweden.

Had a good stay, met some great people. The hostel is large which makes the atmosphere busy and lively but less homey
