Nice location, but horrible for not allowing drinking your own beer or even buying at the market and leaving at the fridge. Hello??? We're backpackers :(

We really enjoyed it here. Nice vibe, great staff, excellent location and reasonable beer/food prices. The rooms were adequate and clean. A very good effort from Downtown.

Overall nice place, close to main sights. Downside bar and reception is run by same people, very slow service. No security lockers or checking if you're a guest. everybody can come in and sit down. Free dinner every night if you're on time was good. rooms were very small but beds were okay. not enough showers per floor and the elevator didn't work properly. while i stayed fire alarm went off and there was no hot water. but still, nice place. Good atmosphere.

Fantastic hostel in a great location; warm, inviting, and fun atmosphere. There were always people hanging out in the lounge during the day or drinking at the bar at night, so it was easy to start up conversations with other travelers. Loved the whole vibe of the place! Bathrooms and showers were clean and private, and the rooms felt very secure. I would definitely recommend this place to others and stay here again!

Very nice place with a lot of style and lovely design, the food at the restaurant was really good, the rooms were clean and simple, the toilets not really clean all the time, but not that bad. It was a little bit noise during the night because of all the people at the bar. Don´t try to smoke inside the building, we got a fire alarm at 5 am, it´s was a big emergency with firefighters and policeman, it was a big evacuation, not really worth it for a cigarette, but pretty safe!

Great well located hostel. Easy to get to and in the city. Rooms were a little cramped and no lockers but the hostel had one of the best bars downstairs with cheep drinks. Wifi in the rooms.

There were not enough toilets/showers on each floor (for those people without en suite facilities). The website misrepresents the free dinner advertised. I went down to dinner at 5:30pm (for 6:30pm meal) and was told that I could not eat the group dinner because all of the spots were taken. This is false advertising and decreases the value for money that I got for staying at this hostel.

Overall a great place to stay, specially for the young-ish traveller. However there are a few things a less carefree yet eager backpacker may appreciate. The common area is basically a very busy bar. So here great atmosphere means quite-loud not-really-much space for relaxation in the evenings except for the dorms. Reception and bar are two ends of the same space, attended by the same members of staff, which makes up a very slow service at both ends. Otherwise all good. Specially great location.

The location is great, walking tours pick you up from the lobby, the bar/ hangout area downstairs is relaxed and always has people in it. I even met some locals there who had come to the bar because they heard the happy hour was the best in town! One of the best hostels I've ever stayed in. The best part is the free dinner each night, you need to get there at least an hour early, maybe more, to get a place, but that means you talk to other travellers automatically. I think its a great idea.

We didn't have any closet or possibility to hang our stuff in our room. There was also no mirror and it was only possible to plug in one 'bed light' for two bunk beds since they didn't have enough plugs. Other than that, the staff was super friendly and they offered free dinner every day for a small group of people who got there early enough ;-) it was probably the biggest hostel we've ever been to, with six floors and many rooms.

Good location, walking distance to all the main sights. The bar is a great place to meet fellow travellers, and the free dinner really helps to facilitate this - but get there early, space is limited. The breakfast is well worth the extra cost. Service was pretty slow during breakfast and happy hour, but all in all, it's a great hostel and I'd stay here again.

I have nothing but good to say about this hostel. Very clean, felt very safe/secure the entire time, and a great ambiance to meet different people. I will definitely be staying there next time I go back to Copenhagen!
