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.

Thanks a lot for your feedback. Nice to hear you found our rooms clean and comfy, cleaning is on the top if our priorities. We have lockers available to rent for 30 KR and just from 7 to 10 am you are able to access other floors so you don't have to queue for the bathroom. Did you check our Downunder bar? Perfect place to chill in the morning and to party in the evening :) Place us a visit if you come back to Copenhagen ! Cheers from Downtown Team

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.

Thanks for taking the time and leaving us such a nice review. 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.

The hostel was great, loads of cool bonuses such as free wifi, free dinner and other activities. HostelWorld was less great, we tried to cancel one of our nights there and sent an email but have still not received a reply 2 weeks later.

The location was great and the rooms were kept very clean. The bar downstairs was a great time and I had a great time staying at this hostel!! Definitely a lot of fun. My only two complaints are that the lockers were not secure and the staff seemed very overworked. When I arrived I had to wait half an hour just to check in because there were too many people and not enough staff members.

Thanks a lot for your feedback. Sorry to hear that you had to wait a long time to check in. Sometimes we do have rush hours where travelers arrive in bug groups and reception can get a bit slow, we hope you found a smiley face after all :) Our lockers are electronic configured so actually they are very safe, surprised to hear about any issues with them. Our bar is a melting pot of travelers and locals which creates an amazing atmosphere so you can meet new people. See you soon! Downtown Team

Definitely a good hostel with party vibe and comprehensive facilities. Two blemishes on an otherwise positive record: 1. Toilets which seem to be constantly clogged despite the cleaning crew signing off on them. 2. The guest fridge which was overfilled and seemed to never get cleared out (you may want to cook at Copenhagen restaurant prices). But had a great experience overall and would recommend.

Thanks for the feedback. We do clean our fridge twice a week and our reception staff is always available if there is any issue with toilets or in our kitchen. It is very nice to hear you had fun anyways, we hope to see you again :) Cheers from Downtown Team

One of the better hostels that I've stayed at. Everything was incredibly professional and everyone I encountered was rather friendly. The bar was always busy and everything you wanted to be included was essentially there.

Great atmosphere, really good bar and downstairs area. Lockers were a little small. Free dinner was terrible and very small portion. Breakfast good value for money. Good location. Staff very helpful. Good bike hire scheme. Was in a 10 bed dorm and beds were very close together with one practically in the middle of the room.

Thanks for your feedback. We are sorry to hear that you didn't get a lot of food from our free dinner, we do this activity with the intention of you tasting some nice food but most of all so you meet other guests, sharing is caring :) We do have big lockers in our basement able to fit several bags. Our lovely bar with daily events going on where you can taste amazing cocktails or dance listening to our live music is the best best place to make friends. Cheers from Downtown Team

Best hostel bar I've ever seen with reasonable prices and surprisingly good food. Great atmosphere and the staff is always helpful. Only cons are the small rooms and the fact that WiFi doesn't really work in the first floor rooms.

Thanks for your feedback. We have a fantastic bar crew at the bar making the best cocktails in town :) Our reception staff is available 24 hours if you have any issues so next time let us know about the wifi :) Cheers and hope to see you soon! Cheers Downtown Team

Staff were amazing. The bar is actually a bar. Most hostels the bar is just a beer fridge, but here it's the real deal. I spent a full day just sitting outside the hostel bars on the bean bags chilling and drinking. Breakfast is good but pretty steep. Pretty much everyone is the hostel is down to hang out. Really easy to meet people and have a good time. The free dinner is also an added bonus. Rooms were good as well, beds were comfy and didn't make much noise. The washrooms were a little gross.

Thanks so much for the review! We have a bar full of activities and live music where locals come and meet up because it is just chill and very easy to socialize :) We are happy to know you took a bite of our free dinner, next time please let reception know if you find any cleaning issues so we can sort it out on the spot. Cheers from Downtown Team
