Awesome location, very busy bar. Free dinner was a lottery each night, had to get there very early to get a seat, should do more servings! Staff could also be more proactive giving suggestions of attractions and cheap places to eat.

Extremely good location (near the train station, the city center and metro station). Nice facilities (good wifi, bike rental, a very good breakfast for 9 usd, laundry) and they give you a free dinner every day this december (you just must have a seat in the overcrowed common room wich is very difficult!). Really helpful staff. Cons: overcrowded hostel (sometimes had to queue for contacting the reception). Anyway, I would recommend them.

Very noisy hostel to stay in, really loud music playing from the bar until 5am at the weekend and toilets next to our room were opened up for use from drunk people in the bar, causing noise and disruption all night. Very suprised as reviews are good, but from our experience this hostel was not good value for money.

Perfectly located hostel with great bar area for socializing. Free dinner was fantastic but take note that only 40 people can partake, and you'll have to arrive early if you want to eat for free. Bathroom floors were often wet, but no complaints otherwise.

This was a really excellent location, close walking distance to the main sights. The atmosphere in the bar wad thr best. Very easy to meet other travellers. The Saturday I stayed they had the biggest DJ in Denmark playing in the downstairs bar. Was so great . Also cool that the walking tour leaves from the hostel. Enjoyed this place very much. Book it!!!

Thanks for the input! Happy to hear you got to see Trentemøller in our new UnderBar :D We are not just a hostel but a nightlife reference if you wanna get to know a bit of the underground scene going on in the city and meeting locals. Every Saturday we have national/international artists coming to play, rest of the days you will still find the best vibe in the city no matter what. Spread the word and we hope to see you back! Cheers and love from Downtown Team

Hi there! We are sorry to hear that you lost a shirt, did you ask reception? Sometimes people can take some stuff by mistake without any intention to steal. Sad to hear that incident just gave us a 66%, bit unfair don't you think? You are always welcome to write us in case that it was lost in the room and we found it. Take care and travel safe, Downtown Team

The staff was excellent, they truly made my experience. So nice, cool, and helpful. The common area with the bar was awesome and we loved the free traditional dinner. The only downside was that the bathrooms on my floor smelled a bit, but all in al we absolutely loved it and would totally stay again.

+++ Well localized hostel, with a friendly staff and a nice environment. The rooms are really small (for 6 people) but the bed was confortable. --- Quite noisy during the night. Impossibility of having breakfast before 7am. Only one shower in the floor (every floor had 6/7 rooms with 6 beds each).

my assigned bed was not clean upon arrival bathrooms were dirty, and no soap also having to pay for lockers the bar in the basement was playing music until at least 3 am which kept up everyone in my room, no one could sleep.

The dorm room where i stayed did not have any place to hang the clothes. Also no rubbish bin in the room. There was plenty of space in the room itself so even a chair or something would have been a practical addition. Otherwise the beds and everything was very okay.

Staff were friendly. Rooms were very cramped and no lockers - nothing at all to store your belongings. Extra charge for sheets and towel, but that seems to be common at hostels in Copenhagen. This is a party hostel, not a place to stay if you want to sleep before 2am.
