The Downtown Hostel is a great place for young travellers to stay in a friendly and relaxed environment. Staff were very nice and people we met were very friendly too.

I've been to many hostels around Europe but this one will stick out as one of the best. Very friendly staff, nice atmosphere, a great location all contributed well to a really enjoyable trip. The only thing I could fault them on was the limited food menu. However, there is no question I'd stay here again - whether it was for a weekend with the girlfried or trip away with the lads.... Thanks all in CPH! :)

Friendly staff, great location with most major sights within a short walk. Comfy, clean room. Good recommendations of things to see and do, with a good atmosphere in the hostel bar and across the square. Breakfast is good value with plenty of choices on offer. Thanks for looking after us CPH Downtown! We look forward to returning in the future.

Great hostel with amazing facilities. Beds were super comfortable and would recommend highly. Had a great night sleep. The free dinner every night helped meet new and amazing people also.

This is for sure one of my favorite hostels. It´s located in the city centre, with a walking distance to the central station + most of the attractions in Copenhagen city. The staff is nice and helpful, and the hostel looks really cool. Great atmosphere every night with happy hour from 8PM-9PM and free dinner every night. The facilities are ok + they have a good breakfast (although a bit expensive). Not the cleanest hostel and the wifi connection was not the best all the time.

good hostel in a good location! one downside was that the wifi was absolutely terrible and by terrible I mean practically unusable

The hostel is in a great location in Indre By between the town hall and Christiansborg. There's a large bar/restaurant downstairs where everyone hangs out. Being so large though, people are in their own little groups so it could be more difficult for a solo traveler to meet people than in a smaller hostel. The staff are fun and friendly. They were doing construction, so the elevator was periodically unavailable and the water was turned off for a whole day.

Very cool hostel! Had I known I'd be extending my Copenhagen stay, I would have wanted to stay longer there. The staff was really nice and provided a lot of information! The free walking tour was a plus, too, as I got a lot more history out of the city. Also met some cool people there even though my stay was short. Will definitely return whenever I go back!!

I know this is a big call but I have traveled around the world and stayed at many hostels and this one is the best so far(in 4 years of travelling). It has a bar that creates great atmosphere, the staff are awesome and kind and helpful, which is a huge bonus when travelling. I had a great time and hope to come back here. The showers do get cold in peak hour so get up earlier if you enjoy warm showers.

Really fantastic hostel! The free dinners and free walking tour are a great way to meet people for solo travelers! The hostel isn't that close to a metro station, which may deter you, but don't let it - it's a fantastic location in walking distance to everything

Loved the breakfast. And the bar is perfect to hang around. Just if you are really sensitiv to noise, it might not be the best (but still a good) place to stay.

Such friendly staff, they always have a smile for you, no matter how busy the reception is! Breakfast is awesome and the whole place has a friendly, relaxed atmosphere

Hostel was decent, with an awesome bar to meet people, but it is let down by the facilities. On one level with at least 30 beds, there is only 3 toilets and 2 showers. There was always a line for the bathroom as a result. It was also quite expensive for what it's worth, but I guess that's Copenhagen for you!

There were no lockers in the dorm. Apparently Copenhagen is so safe that this is not necessary. However, it would have been nice to have some storage space in the room.

Staff were really welcoming and helpful. It was a great hostel. Only problem was the bed wasn't properly clean when I arrived. There was something like food crumbs under the covers. Everything else about the place was great.
