Spent 5 nights here last week and enjoyed it very much.found all staff very helpful especially Tula from Hungery who even lent me a hat and glove when I hired a bike for the day which was one of many highlights.As I travelled alone it was fantastic to get together with others every evening for a meal in the hostel and enjoy the happy hour!


Hostel has a really nice downstairs area, and especially for solo travellers as there is a free evening meal so thats good to get to meet people (although the food isnt great). the room is a decent size, the annoying this is in the mornings there is a queue for the showers. the hostel is in the middle of everything which is good, id recommend to anyone staying in copenhagen but would get a ensuite room next time


Lots of construction going on in the dorms. Very cool hostel though, clean and centrally located!


Great hostel with a fun environment. It's quite big so you will get a mix of people but the bar area was always fun. Wonderful location / close to most attractions. Only negative is that they had no lockers in the rooms so someone could take your stuff.


Absolutely loved staying here. Staff were very nice, location was convenient, and the atmosphere was really laid back and friendly. The only real problem I had was that while I was there, they were doing renovations to the bathrooms on my floor, which led to a lot of building material all over the place and it was quite noisy.


great hostel, definitely recommend. i definitely got stuck in the smallest room, with two of the smelliest guests. but I also saw other rooms, and can say that the others were a decent size and didn't smell so bad.


We loved staying here! Thank you for everything. Would definitely recommend to others!


long cues at the receptions slow and incompetent staff

Waited almost 40 minutes to get checked in at reception. There was a line of about 7 of us, but somehow it took forever. The reception is located right next to the bar, so we all awkwardly lined up with all of our stuff


The hostel is great in terms on location and atmosphere. The staff were so nice, specially the bar manager Luca. The service is good, as the hostels, and it is open 24 hours. Nevertheless, two friends were stole in their own room during the weekend, and I couldn't see the hostel really worried about it. On Saturday night someone stuck the toilet, that was really disgusting, and the cleaning is more worried about brushing the floor and leaving everything apparently "nice". No towels included.

Staff was great in recommending things to do. The common areas were great in fostering a welcoming environment. I met new people each night during dinner and happy hour that became the people I went out with. Absolutely recommend this to first time travelers and seasoned travelers alike.

Staff didn't know what was happening, kept giving the same beds away, bunks were broken and very squeaky, not enough bathrooms, there was a line in the morning to use the toilets and showers


Bad: Bathrms could definitely do w some ventilation. A spritz of air freshener every hr doesn't really count as cleaning & definitely need separate toilets in the AM when people want showers. Staff smoking at the entrance is very unpleasant when you walk out the door also Good: Owner v friendly & helpful & trying to improve the facilities. Free dinner a great way to meet people & the chef is very sweet & does such a good job to feed 40 people on time every nt (even when some aren't from hostel)


This hostel was very well maintained and very clean. The bar downstairs was excellent and had a good atmosphere. The staff were helpful and friendly. The location is excellent, within walking distance of most of central Copenhagen. However, the rooms were quite small and there seemed to be a lack of shared bathrooms available compared to the number of rooms. There were no lockers in the rooms either.


Perfect location and a really good environment to meet new people


This hostel was a great place to meet people of you are traveling alone. The rooms (10 person) were a good size however it did get very hot at night. Some of the staff was more helpful than others.

The staff is really amazing. The hostel is too hype but not much is delivered. I stayed in a 4 bedroom room that looked much more like a corridor. The room was too small, no lockers inside (if u want one gotta pay extra for a locker downstairs) or places to put anything.


Great hostel. The bar is a social place at night. Would definitely stay again.


Certain booking websites like hostelworld blocked on their internet. No lockers in rooms and long lines at the bathroom.


Great hostel with a cool bar at the lobby to chill out and meet new people. Good location too so you can easily walk to the metro or to the shopping street. Only downside was that they were undergoing renovations so it was kinda messy in the locker rooms in the basement, and somehow our room
