Great hostel with amazing facilities. Beds were super comfortable and would recommend highly. Had a great night sleep. The free dinner every night helped meet new and amazing people also.

This is for sure one of my favorite hostels. It´s located in the city centre, with a walking distance to the central station + most of the attractions in Copenhagen city. The staff is nice and helpful, and the hostel looks really cool. Great atmosphere every night with happy hour from 8PM-9PM and free dinner every night. The facilities are ok + they have a good breakfast (although a bit expensive). Not the cleanest hostel and the wifi connection was not the best all the time.

The hostel is in a great location in Indre By between the town hall and Christiansborg. There's a large bar/restaurant downstairs where everyone hangs out. Being so large though, people are in their own little groups so it could be more difficult for a solo traveler to meet people than in a smaller hostel. The staff are fun and friendly. They were doing construction, so the elevator was periodically unavailable and the water was turned off for a whole day.

Very cool hostel! Had I known I'd be extending my Copenhagen stay, I would have wanted to stay longer there. The staff was really nice and provided a lot of information! The free walking tour was a plus, too, as I got a lot more history out of the city. Also met some cool people there even though my stay was short. Will definitely return whenever I go back!!

I know this is a big call but I have traveled around the world and stayed at many hostels and this one is the best so far(in 4 years of travelling). It has a bar that creates great atmosphere, the staff are awesome and kind and helpful, which is a huge bonus when travelling. I had a great time and hope to come back here. The showers do get cold in peak hour so get up earlier if you enjoy warm showers.

Loved the breakfast. And the bar is perfect to hang around. Just if you are really sensitiv to noise, it might not be the best (but still a good) place to stay.

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

Hostel was decent, with an awesome bar to meet people, but it is let down by the facilities. On one level with at least 30 beds, there is only 3 toilets and 2 showers. There was always a line for the bathroom as a result. It was also quite expensive for what it's worth, but I guess that's Copenhagen for you!

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.

Staff were really welcoming and helpful. It was a great hostel. Only problem was the bed wasn't properly clean when I arrived. There was something like food crumbs under the covers. Everything else about the place was great.

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. :-)
