The staff was so friendly! It's also a great place to meet people if your traveling alone. A whole floor shares 3 bathrooms but it wasn't ever a problem, the bathrooms would get really crowded right before check out(excepted). Overall it's an amazing hostel and I highly recommend you stay here.

It is said to be the best hostel in Copenhagen. I didn't see any others but this one is just an average hostel. The location is great, close to the center and also close to main station. But rooms are only equipped with bunk beds and some folding chairs. No lockers, no table and not even shelves to put your phone next to your bed. Bathrooms outside the rooms, what is fine. The queues weren't too bad in the morning and cleanliness was ok. Atmosphere at the bar downstairs was nice. It's OK!

Thanks a lot for taking the time and leaving us a review. We do have lockers available for renting, just come by reception and our lovely staff will help you. We know our rooms are basic but they have all the necessary stuff, we believe what makes your trip a fantastic experience is outside them:) Socializing is a vital part of our concept and we work hard on making it happen that's why we are the best hostel in Copenhagen. Hope to see you soon next time in Copenhagen. Cheers from Downtown Team

Excellent hostel!! The staff were super friendly and helpful, location was brilliant and the free walking tours and great atmosphere in the bar made it super easy to meet people. By far one of the best hostels I've stayed at and would definitely recommend it!

Very big hostel. The rooms a little bit small. Helpful staff. Very good paid apart breakfast.

beware that there were no lifts for luggages. maybe inconvenient for those with large luggages.

Fantastic location, and the bar is awesome. Don't know why it is open 24 hours though - unnecessary and leads to a lot of noise outside at night. Triple room is also a generous description, a bunk bed with a tiny campbed is more realistic...

I thought the rooms were small and the beds uncomfortable and loud as guests moves around. If you want a good night sleep this is not the place, but if you want ton have fun time in downtown Copenhagen this is a great place!

This place is the best. We stayed 3 nights in the hostel and had such a good time! The staff are so friendly and help you with anything. The bar and entertainment at night was awesome but if you wanted to go out then it was in such a good location that you were close to everything! I highly reccomend Downtown Copenhagen!

The hostel was a great place to stay for a solo traveler. It's quite a social hostel with a nice heated outdoor area for hanging out on those cold days. The facilities were very comfortable and clean. Would definitely stay here again.

Great location, central to the tourist sights, on a more quiet sidestreet so you're not bombarded by noise and people. The bar is the center of the hostel, on the ground floor where you check in, and people meet for food, drinks, and laptops. I stayed solo in a 4 person bunk, was lucky enough to get along well with 2 of my roommates. This is of course is luck- but made going down to the bar to meet others much easier. Only neg. is no lockers in room and the storage room was too easy to get into.

Nice hostel, real pity that they cancelled my reservation the same day and without letting me know.

Nice hostel with cozy bar, great location. However, it was extremely loud, making it impossible to sleep. VERY loud music from the hostels bar (and maybe some other place too, spontaneous party??) going on the whole night (until 5AM superloud, then somehow softer music). The staff was apologetic about it and immediately offered free breakfast to compensate, which was nice and we appreciate it.

Thanks a lot for your feedback! We are a very central hostel and in summer time streets can get noisy. We are glad to know that our staff took care of you despite of it and we hope to see you in your next visit to Copenhagen ;) Cheers from Downtown Team

Location was outstanding. Always nice to have a local bar too. Great to be able to rent bikes right there! The usual standard for the rooms. I found it odd that the people working there could not speak danish, but good that students get some work in other places - for them.
