The hostel was in a good location and the bar/lounge had an excellent atmosphere. Loved the free dinner, although it was quite busy and we had to get there an hour early just to guarantee a spot. Met a lot of great people there and shared some memorable nights. The kitchen was too small for the amount of people using it, but we made it work. If you are looking for a place with energy and atmosphere, I definitely recommend this place. If you want something quiet, I would go elsewhere.

Great hostel, fun people (also the staff) and a great bar with cheap beer to hang out.

A vibrant and lively atmosphere to be had here! Hostel is located a short distance from the central train station, main shopping street and other major attractions. Breakfast was a reasonably priced buffet and offered a wide selection. Free dinner in the evening; every evening was a great opportunity to meet new people. Bedrooms and shower facilities were decent - not the best but more than adequate. Staff are friendly and very helpful. Recommended.

Great hostel, great atmosphere. Only complaint is that in the morning you have to often wait in line for a bit for the bathroom/shower.

Great Hostel. I stayed in the 10 bed dorm for 5 nights on 2 different occassions during my trip, the beds were comfortable and the room was clean. The free dinners were a fantastic touch in expensive Copenhagen, plus they were a great way to meet people and socialise. The bar was also fantastic, especially with happy hour! As a solo traveller I loved this hostel as it was so easy to meet new people.

Excellent staff members, so helpful and friendly. Also very good atmosphere in the place, excellent clean rooms, cooking area is more than adequate also. However the promise of a 'free dinner' was not for filled on several occasions due too not all seats receiving food, which is not mentioned on the board nor by staff members. Also breakfast was a little pricey, Other than that this is a great place to see and experience everything Copenhagen has to offer! Would stay here again no problem!

Great vibe here at the bar. They also offer free dinner every night! Great way to meet people! Walking distance to everything you would want to see in Copenhagen.

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.

I loved this hostel. It was really easy to meet people and the vibe was great.

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
