Placed right in the middle of the tourist zone of the city, its an easy walk to the main tourist attractions and metro stations. Their lounge has the the cleanest feel for a hostel I've ever had, and it was very comfortable to chill out alone or to meet people at any time of the day. Also note, they serve a free dinner every night , but try to get there a half hour early to grab a seat. The food is first come first serve at the 3 tables behind foosball table.

Great hostel with a laid back atmosphere!

This hostel created a great atmosphere by providing a free dinner. It brings everyone together (if you get there early enough to get a seat) and means you'll have drinking companions. I really like the set up of the common area downstairs. Breakfast is extra. Within walking distance of the centre (5 min). 20 min walk to Christiania and 30 to the Little Mermaid. No lockers in the rooms. Bag storage is open so anyone who know's its there can just walk in.

The location of the hostel was amazing! Within walking distance to most major attractions! Staff were simply amazing and very knowledgeable! The room was good but could do with maybe some luggage lockers and more working power plugs. Just a note that if you get a room close to the road or the stairs, you can hear the noises from the streets and stairs clearly but it didn't bother me! The free dinner was amazing but get there an hour early if you want to have some!

The hostel is good, but it should provide sockets for each bed availabla in the room, what help when charging the mobile is necessary. Also there is no proper place to put our personal things in the bed, I mean, if you need to setup an alarm, there is no place to leave it near you. Lockers are not available in the room. location is excelent, enabling walk throughout the city. *room of 6 beds, and shared bathroom.

Good atmosphere, but too small room.

It's one of the best hostels in which I stayed so far.

Excellent hostel, charming staff and precisely what we wanted for a weekend away in Copenhagen. Take advantage of the free dinner every night from 6:30 pm onwards - my advice is save your seats even before 6 if you don't want to miss out. It saved us a lot of money. The hostel also had bike hire (75 DKK for 12hrs) which was easier and cheaper than finding one around the city. The bunk beds were super comfy - the pillows like clouds. Toilets and showers always clean and the hostel felt secure!

This is the cleanest hostel I have ever stayed in. The nicest too with a really great location and so many bathrooms and showers. Highly recommended!

Staff were friendly and helpful. The bar/cafe/lounge area had a really nice atmosphere and it was easy to meet people. The heating was on way too hot though.

The directions on how to get to the hostel don't make any sense, staff was okay and so were rooms and bathroom. Not enough showers/toilets per floor. They should include mirrors either at the bathrooms or rooms. Breakfast was expensive, but still a good value. I'd definitely stay again because of the atmosphere and the bar. Free diner was great too!

No lockers in rooms. Rooms are practically bunks in an otherwise empty room. Pretty basic. Facilities are OK, but shared between genders. Kitchen was too small and dirty most of the time. Also, don't be fooled by the 'free dinner' - it's only for 3 tables (Aprox. 20-30 people). Still offers OK value for money.

Great hostel, amazing staff. The vibe that one gets from the hostel is outstanding. Would recommend this place to anyone. It is worth it. Furthermore, I appreciate the bike rental, being in a city such as Copenhagen, it is a great asset from the hostel.

couldn't find a better place to enjoy copenhagen! Lovely atmosphere and very nice people. Great buffet for breakfast (that you have to pay but it's cheap for the city and it's really worth it!) and free dinner :) I strongly recommend it!

Nice hostel within walking distance to nightlife and many nice bars & nightclubs. Reception can be packed during rush hours, but then you can wait outside or in a near bye cafe.
