Great location and cool common area! Shower walls didn't seem to be cleaned regularly.

Fine place. Great location. Definitely a college dorm feel. Fun for young people looking to meet other travelers and party. It was hard sleeping with the noise.

We stayed 4days, and we had a great time. The athmosphere is great and almost everything (bars,clubs,restaurants,monuments,etc.) a really near by. 5* hostel :)

This is the standard when wanting to stay at a hostel. Staff / location / vibe / activities offered were spot on. Fun bar and games on the main level and another bar downstairs with a stage for a live band / pool table and other games. Location was perfect. No complaints. We saw young kids traveling alone all the way to families with their children. Great vibe for everyone.

This was probably my favorite hostel of my trip, central and very clean. There are private showers, free dinners downstairs and you can buy a buffet breakfast for 65DDK. There's a bar downstairs and also a lounge, dead easy to meet people and everyone was really friendly. There are also free walking tours which are good to get your bearings, they sell tickets for a pub crawl afterwards for the following night.

This is a great hostel, comfortable rooms, nice staff and good location. However, there were not enough showers, and the kitchen was very small.

Fantastic hostel. The directions given on the email were difficult to utilise. Would have been better if it has used named land marks like the town hall that is nearby and other visible landmarks that are seen from a distance

The hostel is big! Lots of areas to meet people. The kitchen is kind of small for the amount of people staying there, but it wasn't too badly overcrowded. They have free dinner every night but it's first in best dressed and it goes VERY quickly. Didn't get to have some at all during my stay. Great place to stay overall, it's expensive but I'd say it's worth it.

The hostel was clean and welcoming, with great decor, situated right in the centre of Copenhagen. The staff were amazing, friendly and willing to put up with us staying in the bar til 6am! I wish my trip had been longer, as I met fabulous people, in an awesome city thanks to this hostel. Couldn't recommend highly enough!

I stayed here for 4 nights in three different rooms. The rooms and everywhere were super clean but not all had lockers and there were nowhere near enough bathrooms (toilets or showers) on each floor. The bar area was nice - although they need to move the reception desk so it's not right in the center of all their traffic - but it would also have been nice if there was one quiet place to go in the entire hostel that wasn't in the room.

Cph downtown was just great. The location was really perfect, right in the city centre. I would definitely stay again when I'm back in Copenhagen.

Great hostel, close to a lot of fun places, and facilities were good and generally clean.

No lockers was a little surprising, but the room felt safe nonetheless. Location was good - walking tour picked you up there and walked a couple blocks to the starting point. Drinks were a decent price for Copenhagen. Overall really nice.

Great stay, great staff, amazing athmosphere. Showers and washrooms could really use more ventilation, there was always water everywhere in them.

A great place to meet people! The deals at the hostel bar are great, and the free dinner was a good bonus. Best location in Copenhagen! It was easy to walk everywhere. The beds were very comfortable and the wifi was mostly good!

The hostel has a great bar downstairs where it is easy to meet people (and it is pretty much the only place fun to go on a Sunday night) Facilities are great. Showers could be cleaned more often though. Book in early in peak season. I heard from other travellers from other hostels (who came to hang out at the bar) that they couldn't get a bed on this one because it was fully booked.

I had a fantastic time at the hostel. Other reviewers are definitely correct, that it can get pretty noisy at night, but that is the price you pay for a hostel this social. Facilities were cleaned regularly, the staff were friendly and the food was good (even the free meal!). The location is ludicrously central too. I highly recommend this hostel for people in their early 20s, and if you're not intending to be at the bar most nights, bring earplugs.

We are happy to hear that you enjoy the nice vibe of the place and that you got home a bunch of nice memories :) We do know that we have a lot of young travelers that love to party and it can get noisy, but everybody is welcome at Downtown :) Hope to see you soon! Cheers from Downtown Team

Great hostel, especially for the lone traveller. So easy to meet fellow travellers. Clean, good services and location, and would certainly recommend to others who are travelling to and around CPH.
