Very good hostel. Well located and clean. Not so much a party hostel, which I am happy about, but still a good atmosphere in the bar downstairs. I would recommend a stay here.


This is like a Hostel should be. Many young people lots of activities and nice staff! Loved my stay there.


It was very loud at night, even with earplugs. Stayed there on a Sunday and barely slept because of the noise. Staff seemed friendly and the atmosphere of the bar was good.


I loved my stay here! There is a free family dinner at 6:30pm every evening, which is a great opportunity to get to know other travelers. The hostel is also in a great part of town, and was about a 5-15 minute walk from everywhere we wanted to go. I also felt completely safe here, and as a woman that means a lot to me! I will definitely stay here again the next time I'm in Copenhagen.


Excellent hostel in a perfect location, easy to arrive from the station (about 10min walk). They serve decent (free!) dinner for a limited amount of people, there's also a burger shop nearby. In front of the Hostel is a nice square. The staff is friendly and the atmosphere really fun. Breakfast is ok but a bit expensive. My room was good and WiFi worked. Only downside is a shortage of bathrooms to number of guests, but the positive traits do make up for it.


Great place to stay! Unfortunately I was on a business trip and didn't have time to enjoy the great atmosphere and bar. Location was great, walking distance to everywhere and next to Tivoli. Staff was amazing!!


The hostel is awesome. The only thing they have to fix is the lack of sockets in the room to charge our devices.


Really well located hostel, nice staff and great atmosphere, free diner is good enough to help you save some money in this expensive city. Breakfast a bit overpriced. Nice facilities and kitchen with pretty much all you need,. Recomended hostel...


Great staff! There is a free dinner in the evening and breakfast (not included) is well worth the money. They have a nice kitchen to cook on your own terms too. I am a solo traveler and the common area makes it easy to meet people. There are not lockers in the rooms, but each room requires key card access. I would recommend this hostel to anybody.


nice hostel with great location. rooms are super small but clean, and very good atmosphere.


The Hostel is excellent. The atmosphere is amazing. They have free dinner almost every night. The staff are friendly, The restaurant is good, good food and drink, good price and the Hostel is very central. I recommend it.


Already did an evaluation with the hostel


We really enjoyed it here. Nice vibe, great staff, excellent location and reasonable beer/food prices. The rooms were adequate and clean. A very good effort from Downtown.


Overall nice place, close to main sights. Downside bar and reception is run by same people, very slow service. No security lockers or checking if you're a guest. everybody can come in and sit down. Free dinner every night if you're on time was good. rooms were very small but beds were okay. not enough showers per floor and the elevator didn't work properly. while i stayed fire alarm went off and there was no hot water. but still, nice place. Good atmosphere.


Fantastic hostel in a great location; warm, inviting, and fun atmosphere. There were always people hanging out in the lounge during the day or drinking at the bar at night, so it was easy to start up conversations with other travelers. Loved the whole vibe of the place! Bathrooms and showers were clean and private, and the rooms felt very secure. I would definitely recommend this place to others and stay here again!

Very nice place with a lot of style and lovely design, the food at the restaurant was really good, the rooms were clean and simple, the toilets not really clean all the time, but not that bad. It was a little bit noise during the night because of all the people at the bar. Don´t try to smoke inside the building, we got a fire alarm at 5 am, it´s was a big emergency with firefighters and policeman, it was a big evacuation, not really worth it for a cigarette, but pretty safe!


Great well located hostel. Easy to get to and in the city. Rooms were a little cramped and no lockers but the hostel had one of the best bars downstairs with cheep drinks. Wifi in the rooms.


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.


Overall a great place to stay, specially for the young-ish traveller. However there are a few things a less carefree yet eager backpacker may appreciate. The common area is basically a very busy bar. So here great atmosphere means quite-loud not-really-much space for relaxation in the evenings except for the dorms. Reception and bar are two ends of the same space, attended by the same members of staff, which makes up a very slow service at both ends. Otherwise all good. Specially great location.


Best place in Copenhagen. Best place ever. Best staff ever. Lots of fun. Gonna miss you guys.
