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.

When I stayed, the lift didn't work, I coulnd't close the window in the room tightly, and toilets and showerooms were so dirty and not enough to whole people in the floor. If you want to meet new people and drink beer in noisy atmosphere, I would recommend this hostel. But otherwise, I strongly oppose your choice of this hostel.

There was no hot water for the showers on 2 of the 3 mornings of our stay. Our room was broken into while we were sleeping and 4 mobile phones and a watch were stolen.

Fantastic place to stay right in the place you want to be. the 4 bed female dorm (thanks for having a female dorm!) was nice with big windows. I added extra blanket to mattress and it was fine. This dorm is tight with little space for stuff, no dressers or desk, only the 4 beds, so you need to keep stuff under the bed unless you have the corner by window, down bed, then you can use that corner. The hostel itself is just fantastic. The staff are great. There is a wonderful full kitchen!

Amazing staff and wonderful atmosphere in the bar/dining area. The free communal meals at night are a great idea and the bar has some of the cheapest drinks in town. A great place to go even if you are not staying at the hostel! Only issue is that there were 2 showers per floor to accommodate 30+ people. This caused long lines. But besides that, an awesome place!

Amazing hostel! Lovely staff, great atmosphere on the bar (there are always a lot of interesting and fun people hanging there, also full of people having a drink at night). Wanted to try the free dinner and free walking tour but couldn't make it on time. No curfew, close to everything in the city, could do everything by foot. Great beds, rooms and bathrooms very clean. Can't think of anything bad about the hostel! It seems a bit pricy, but it's average for the city.

Copenhagen Downtown Hostel has a great location! The free dinners are great and the bar is fun - very easy to meet people at this hostel and to explore Copenhagen from. The staff is also friendly and helpful. My only complaint is the limited number of bathrooms available (which can cause some waiting times in the morning).

Great hostel to party and socialise with other travellers. They run a pub business alongside with the hostel. they are two separate business. so do not expect to drink your own vodka in there. they will steal it from you and not give it back. they justify that by saying it is a pub and not a hostel. overall I had fun despite being robbed of my vodka. :-)

Overall I had a great experience at the hostel. The staff was welcoming and knew a lot about Copenhagen. It was a fun atmosphere and the rooms were acceptable. The only problem I had was that the showers were lukewarm at best. I guess that's what happens when you have so many people staying there!
