I usually don't spent this much money on hostels, but I was only in Copenhagen for one night so I thought I'd splurge. This is by far the nicest hostel I've ever stayed at. The dorms are big, the bathrooms are clean, and the atmosphere is INCREDIBLE. Friendly staff too! 10 minutes after arriving I was settled in and having a beer downstairs with 5 great people I had just met. Definitely will stay here again.

We hope you now carry nice memories of us and that you can come back for a little bit longer. Liked it? Spread the word and let us know if you happen to be around anytime soon!

The bar downstairs is great. Seemed to the most popular bar in Copenhagen so it was good for meeting people. And right in the center of everything. They could use more staff for how big and busy it is. And definitely need more bathrooms and showers per floor but they were immaculately clean. Overall, a great stay.

Hi! thanks a lot for your feedback. Our bar is quite popular because of the great vibes, tunes and prices, definitely enjoying happy hour and one of our fancy cocktails is a must if you are around. We are a busy place and we know that we have rush hours in the morning where the bathrooms are busy that's why our cleaning staff is always around with a smile offering coffee and fresh towels so the waiting is easier :) Come back soon and let us know about it! Cheers from Downtown Team

Great location and cool common area! Shower walls didn't seem to be cleaned regularly.

Fine place. Great location. Definitely a college dorm feel. Fun for young people looking to meet other travelers and party. It was hard sleeping with the noise.

Thank you so much for taking the time and write us. Our place is full of travelers all ages all around the world and the nice bar and events create a very sociable atmosphere and the fact that we are located in the heart of the city, surrounded by nightlife and bars can be noise sometimes. Our reception staff is always available and we have ear plugs :) Happy to hear you had so much fun in here, hope you will repeat soon, cheers from Downtown Team.

We stayed 4days, and we had a great time. The athmosphere is great and almost everything (bars,clubs,restaurants,monuments,etc.) a really near by. 5* hostel :)

Incredibly friendly staff, great location, very clean facilities. People outside on the street can be noisy at night (bar stays open late) so if you're a light sleeper (I'm not) and are sleeping with the window open, I'd recommend getting earplugs. Otherwise, very quiet inside the hostel. Didn't hear much noise in the hallways when I was in my room.

This is the standard when wanting to stay at a hostel. Staff / location / vibe / activities offered were spot on. Fun bar and games on the main level and another bar downstairs with a stage for a live band / pool table and other games. Location was perfect. No complaints. We saw young kids traveling alone all the way to families with their children. Great vibe for everyone.

This was probably my favorite hostel of my trip, central and very clean. There are private showers, free dinners downstairs and you can buy a buffet breakfast for 65DDK. There's a bar downstairs and also a lounge, dead easy to meet people and everyone was really friendly. There are also free walking tours which are good to get your bearings, they sell tickets for a pub crawl afterwards for the following night.

Hey! Thanks a lot for the review! Our place is definitely one of best located and a meeting point for both locals and travelers. Good that you got a bite of our delicious free dinner, is the perfect way to meet people to hang out for happy hour or enjoy our tasty breakfast before going for a walk. Hope you have time to come by and place us a visit soon! Cheers from Downtown Team

This is a great hostel, comfortable rooms, nice staff and good location. However, there were not enough showers, and the kitchen was very small.

Thanks a lot for taking the time and leave a review. Looks like you have a fun time here and we are glad to hear you enjoyed. Our hostel is pretty much one of the few with guest kitchen, and yes it is "hygge", perfect to meet other travelers. Our floors have in between 3 and 5 showers and access to other floors in rush hours; cleaning team is around in the morning with some coffee ready in case you need to wait a little bit :) Looking forward to seeing you again! Cheers from Downtown Team

Fantastic hostel. The directions given on the email were difficult to utilise. Would have been better if it has used named land marks like the town hall that is nearby and other visible landmarks that are seen from a distance

The hostel is big! Lots of areas to meet people. The kitchen is kind of small for the amount of people staying there, but it wasn't too badly overcrowded. They have free dinner every night but it's first in best dressed and it goes VERY quickly. Didn't get to have some at all during my stay. Great place to stay overall, it's expensive but I'd say it's worth it.

Glad that you too time to review us, thanks! Our place has a vibrant atmosphere where is very easy to meet people despite of being a big place, perfect place to have fun and add good memories to your trip. Our free dinner is one of our most popular activities, shame you didn't get a bite, we'll make sure you have some in your next visit, lucky we are one of the few hostels with guest kitchen 24 hours available :) Cheers from Downtown Team

The hostel was clean and welcoming, with great decor, situated right in the centre of Copenhagen. The staff were amazing, friendly and willing to put up with us staying in the bar til 6am! I wish my trip had been longer, as I met fabulous people, in an awesome city thanks to this hostel. Couldn't recommend highly enough!

I stayed here for 4 nights in three different rooms. The rooms and everywhere were super clean but not all had lockers and there were nowhere near enough bathrooms (toilets or showers) on each floor. The bar area was nice - although they need to move the reception desk so it's not right in the center of all their traffic - but it would also have been nice if there was one quiet place to go in the entire hostel that wasn't in the room.

Thanks a lot for your feedback. Nice to hear you found our rooms clean and comfy, cleaning is on the top if our priorities. We have lockers available to rent for 30 KR and just from 7 to 10 am you are able to access other floors so you don't have to queue for the bathroom. Did you check our Downunder bar? Perfect place to chill in the morning and to party in the evening :) Place us a visit if you come back to Copenhagen ! Cheers from Downtown Team

Great hostel, close to a lot of fun places, and facilities were good and generally clean.

No lockers was a little surprising, but the room felt safe nonetheless. Location was good - walking tour picked you up there and walked a couple blocks to the starting point. Drinks were a decent price for Copenhagen. Overall really nice.

Great stay, great staff, amazing athmosphere. Showers and washrooms could really use more ventilation, there was always water everywhere in them.

A great place to meet people! The deals at the hostel bar are great, and the free dinner was a good bonus. Best location in Copenhagen! It was easy to walk everywhere. The beds were very comfortable and the wifi was mostly good!
