This place was bumpin! Lots of people hanging out and drinking in the bar area. It is expensive to stay here, but what isn't expensive in Copenhagen. The bathrooms were a little gross, and there was nowhere to do laundry nearby, but overall this place was great and I would stay here again!

Copenhagen is an amazing city and this is a great hostel. Has a nice bar and the room was clean with lockers provided. Free meal is good but you need to get their early as it has limited availability. Great hostel would recommend to anyone!

Great bar and atmosphere on the best location in town!

Atmosphere was top-notch! Nothing to complain about the hostel, except that it might be just a tad bit too popular which leads to the bar being completely full (and the outside area too) every night.

Great hostel, prime location to tivoli, train, and sites. Tons of restaurants. Free dinner idea is good, didn't participate. Breakfast was good---eggs!! Laundry facilities were out sadly. 6th floor was nice, great view. Only con: 2 showers per floor, lots of lines.

For partying, this place is pretty much unmatched. There is a bar downstairs and excellent vibe around as well as lots of bars and clubs nearby in Copenhagen. I was in a 6-bed dorm and these are quite cramped with no separate lockers. This also got very hot unless the windows were left open, in which case noise from the churches and local area did disturb slightly. The laundry room was out of service when I was there, but this should be temporary.

As soon as we walked into the reception/bar, we knew that this hostel was going to have plenty of atmosphere. Between happy hour, free communal dinner and the different games on offer, the hostel was a great place to meet other travellers. The rooms themselves were fine - we were on the top floor, which was a bit of a walk if you took the stairs. The staff were friendly and while the hostel wasn't cheap by hostel standards, by Copenhagen standards it was a steal

It was very nice to stay in a Downtown hostel , especially because of the good location in heart of the city, clean rooms and kind staff. "Free dinner" is the only thing that disappointed me, because it was available only to a few people who came first.

Awesome hostel! Free dinner, great vibe, good people. I'll be back if I'm ever back in Copenhagen.

Fantastic hostel, great location, friendly staff and overall a great stay. I really liked the sturdy strong bunk beds in the dorm, in comparison to the other hostels I've been to.

The wifi is really not good. Surrounding is too noisy, maybe the reason is because of holiday. Room space is a little bit narrow for 4 beds. Free super is good, but it's hard to get for time limited people. Breakfast is nice, cost-effective.

Big hostel with helpful staff and good drink specials during happy hour. Gotta be quick to get the free dinner.

First off let me say that I would highly recommend this hostel to anyone who is visiting Copenhagen. The staff is helpful, the walking tours start at the hostel, there is a free dinner every night, and the atmosphere is great for meeting fellow travelers. My only complaint would be the noise from the bar area. Although the bar is fun they blast music till 0200 and it is extremely loud in the rooms. We were on the fourth flour and could audibly here every word of each song.

Staff were awesome! Super friendly and really helpful (especially when I rocked up with an oversized 30kg bag that needed to be put in secure storage). Bathrooms were hands down the cleanest I've seen in a hostel but the floors were always wet (no big issue, I just wore flip flops). Breakfast was great, worth the extra fee and the location is awesome, super close to Tivoli, the tourist info centre and the central train station. Wifi was a bit patchy but I was on the top floor. Great hostel!

Copenhagen Downtown Hostel was a nice place to stay. The location was prime! The bar and common area downstairs had a good atmosphere. They served well priced drinks and it was always a fun place to hang out. The hostel dinner was good and the ladies serving it was so nice! The bathrooms and showers were ok, but not exceptional. The only things I would complain about would be no lockers in the rooms and it was not as clean as I would have hoped. Overall I had a good stay.

The staff and place were great. It's a great atmosphere and the free dinners are awesome! It's just as expensive as everywhere else in Copenhagen, and they offer a lot of amenities! My only recommendation would be private lockers in the rooms for suitcases/backpacks. The safes aren't big enough for much, and it would be hard to go up and down 6 floors every time you need your toothbrush, etc...Otherwise, just bring a lock for your bag!

Copenhagen Downtown was perfect for our two-month long backpacking adventure! About 20 minutes walking from the main Copenhagen train station (which is great for any backpacker to hear).. and in a great part of the town. Only a five minute walk from the center of town. There was not a part of Copenhagen that wasn't beautiful. The hostel itself had a wonderful atmosphere for travelers. It was a very open lobby/lounge where people hung out all-day. Staff was helpful and welcoming. Loved it!!
