Definitely need mor toilettes and showers on every floor. Wi-fi was not so good as we could not get lots of services like whatsapp calls

Super close to everything, right in the center of downtown! Bar is fun at night, lots of young people. The breakfast is worth paying for, really great way to start the day!

My first stop in Europe set the bar really high for the rest of my trip. This hostel was perfect for making new friends and served as a perfect location for seeing what Copenhagen has to offer! I have nothing bad to say!

'There is no such thing as a free meal'. This fiasco lets the hostel down. I much preferred the paid for meal at the Spot hostel Porto, prepared by trained young chefs who obviously enjoyed sharing their knowledge. It was also a good opportunity to meet & talk with new people, without the 'feeding frenzy' over flavoured pasta on a tea plate.

It was my first experience with a hostel, and I'm so glad it was with this one! The staff were amazingly helpful, the location was great, and I felt very safe.

This hostel is an awesome place to stay if you want to meet new people and experience Copenhagen nightlife - it's super social and has a great bar, perfect location. However, the rooms and facilities could be better for what you pay each night. I was in a TINY 6-person mixed dorm but was the only girl there for 5 nights. Our room had a lingering sweaty stench. There's always a line for the floor bathrooms and they were also never properly cleaned. The staff was fine but not super friendly.

Probably the nicest hostel I've ever stayed out. There's a very social atmosphere and the free dinner was fantastic.

Great location near central station. Cool bar/cafe downstairs. Clean enough bathrooms. The room wasn't the coziest, but okey. Not enough power sockets in room and my reading light didn't work.

Good hostel with good staff. Let down a little by so few showers/toilets for so many people.

Not enough bathrooms--there was always a wait. Also, some showers only had hot water.

One of the better hostels I stayed at in Europe. Great location just outside city center. Only a 15 minute walk to Metro station. Staff were grand, and helpful whenever asked of anything. Lockers downstairs are a bit awkward to get to. The lift situation is a bit strange and uncomfortable but still works. Perfect atmosphere to meet other travelers. Would definitely stay here again.

Huge hostel over five floors. 4 bed female dorm was tidy and clean. No plug next to my bed but plugs near the door. Toilets and showers on each floor - I personally never had to queue but I can imagine the ratio being an issue. Decent breakfast for 65K - tea, juice, yogurt, jam, bread, meats, museli, cheese. No lockers in rooms. Luggage was stored for free. Hostel puts on lots of events and the bar is busy in the evenings. Excellent location.

The hostel is located in a good area and has a happy atmosphere. The rooms are good but the bathrooms could be better. They where always wet and the courtains were always falling down. the breakfast was good but a little expensive. the staff were very kind and helpfull. I would stay there again.

The staff were great, the bar was fun. Our room was so so hot though and there was only one fan between 10 people. Asides from that and the lockers being mostly broken it was a fantastic hostel.

A very good ambiance and rooms. Good for young since the bar downstairs can get noisy.
