We came here on a whim after our friend had booked us into another hostel for one night instead of 2. The staff were all super friendly, charming and wiling to oblige any request we had and informed us of the free meal at 18:30 and the free wifi (which went down a treat) The highlight for me was the bar area. A large space where travellers and tourists alike could meet, chat and start their night in Copenhagen. What a weekend. Highly reccomend!

Big hostel in a good location. Easy to get to everything. Massive common room/bar/reception area which is always busy so it's great for solo travelers. You pay for the breakfast but it's fantastic. Staff are friendly. Beds are comfy and rooms are big. Just need lockers in rooms and it would be the perfect hostel.

The hostel is well located and the staff is nice and helpful. The breakfast is good and there's so much to eat that you do not need a lunch so it is good way to save money. But the bathroom in the private rooms is really not convenient.

Some staff were more useful than others. They weren't very friendly when I first arrived, but when I had a problem a different staff member was very helpful, even offering me a different room from the one I was in. The free dinner is great. Saves so much money when I was there.

Great hostel. Staff were a little slow on the bar but pretty hard to fault it otherwise.

Loved the hostel and especially loved having cheap food and a bar downstairs, but the bathrooms were absolutely terrible. Water went everywhere and there was always a line in the morning, since we shared bathrooms with the whole floor. Beds/doors are also incredibly loud, so if you are a light sleeper then this is not for you. Great location though!

A very clean and friendly place with great events like the Free Dinner or Live Music. It's located in the city centre, which is great and the staff offers you any help you need! But in your room, there is no facility to put your valuables in a safe or locker, which means you have to give it to the staff next to the bar or you have to carry around everything. On every floor there are only 2 showers + toilets and one extra toilet, which means in high season there's going to be a long waiting line

Copenhagen Downtown is an awesome hostel to stay at! The staff are all very friendly and helpful. The only thing that would have made this place even better is lockers in the rooms. Apart from that would definitely recommend this hostel in future.

This is hostel is awesome, great bar area for meeting people and having a drink at happy hour, live music 2 of the 5 nights we stayed. Free dinners everynight for those who got a seat early my friends said it wasn't bad. Very small kitchen but we always ate out. Very clean but serious lack of showers and toilets on each floor always queuing every morning...dorm rooms are quite small and the bunk beds are THE squeakiest ever don't expect a good sleep! Central location. Would stay here again

First, our foods in a fridge were stolen even if we wrote down our name and date of leaving. But there was no camera that's why we didn't know who stole it. We got a breakfast for free after we told to the staff. So it was OK. Second, we had a trouble in our room, but the front guy thought we couldn't speak English because of Asian face. That's why he wasn't polite. We've never had like these experience so that we didn't feel comfortable. But this location is nice, and rooms are clean.

Fantastic hostel in downtown Copenhagen. Very close to everything. Free dinner in the evening. They rent their own bikes parked conveniently in front of the hostel. Would definitely stay there again.

Really fun, definitely a party hostel and extremely centrally located. Staff is very helpful and the food and drinks are good and cheap. There is always a party going on which is fun but can be a bit loud.

The hostel was in a great location, had a great atmosphere, and the staff were extremely helpful. The only thing negative I have to say about the hostel is that no lockers were provided. They had lockers in the basement but for a fee.

Booked a 4-dorm private room. Everything good except the bathrooms. They were out of paper, smelled pee, wet floor and suddenly the water stopped working as i was going to wash my hands. Wifi works but you feel like you're on 2g. With a Nokia. From the 70s.

The whole hostel in general was very nice. I would repeat it again.

The vibe at this hostel was great, met lots of cool people here. Buffet breakfast not included but worth the money. Location is convenient to city sites. Highly recommend.

This was a brilliant hostel, fantastic atmosphere and facilities, only downside was that if you wanted to have the free dinner you had to get there at least 2 hours early if not more. But hey it's free so can't complain too much! =)

The hostel is perfect, the atmosphere and THE FREE DINNER is the best thing ever! well, the price for me is quite expensive but it's just a normal price for a hostel in copenhagen.
