What a great hostel, met some lovely people, and it was great value for money. We hired bikes for a day and would definitely recommend it, the free walking tour is also well worth it. It's location is unbeatable and is by shopping and bars as well as a delicious traditional restaurant right across the road. Thanks Copenhagen Downtown!

Great location in downtown Copenhagen - but can only enjoy that great location once you find the hostel, which isn't easy. The place is on a small side street that doesn't pop up on tourist maps & is not widely known by locals. Also, this is a party hostel (bar in the lobby!). If partying's part of your travel plans, this place is for you. If you just want a bed to crash & aren't a big drinker, you might feel outta place. Free group dinners served daily are a nice plus & great way to meet ppl.


Great hostel! Such a good set up, rooms were great and heaps of showers. Fun staff with great activities planned, nothing bad to say about this hostel at all!


The hostel has a nice vibe, full of travellers although most of them stick to their own world called social media. As for the hostel, two points of feedback: 1) it's the first hostel after about 200 I pay for when I didn't show up with no possibilities to cancel the booking. 2) it's the first hostel after about 200 where its not allowed to drink your own alcohol.


I highly recommend this hostel! It is without doubt the best hostel I have been in, in every aspect. I love the atmosphere of the bar/common area, everyone is very friendly.


This is a nightclub with a hostel attached to it. If noise keeps you awake, you won't like it.


highly recommend


The common area downstairs was great! My one night there I met some great people at the bar and had an awesome night!

I loved the breakfast and the free dinner. The location is very good as well, i didn't use the public transport. I could recommend to clean the bathroom more times.


The guy who checked-in for us was not so polite and helpful,with exhausting mood to face it is quite a bad impression,but the reception for the after days are all very kind and funny. Kitchen is not big enough for such a huge hostel ,and for everyone wants to save money and have meals themselves. Other parts are all perfect.


The hostel provides a very social environment where one does not feel lonely if you are travelling alone.


Everything was great, except that there weren't enough lockers in the dorm...


Everything was amazing! I suggest staying here! They even gave us a free communal dinner every night, which tasted amazing! The only issue I had, was the wifi. It always cut in out for me and booted me crucial travel sites like hostel world. Other than that, I recommend it!


When I book I thinked they was dinner fo everybody, but it is not like this: just people than sit down in special table 1 hour before can have dinner. In the room they was a lot of stink. I do not know if it was the room , the beds, or the sheets, but it was difficult to slepp with so much stink. The athmosphere of the common room was nice. Staff is very nice, fun, and good worker.


Great bar, amazing breakfast, free dinner every day! Really great hostel, I really liked it A LOT! However, I just have a few small complains about it (and one big one): 1) no free lockers in the room. You can pay and get a key to a small locker, however! 2) very few power outlets (for the size of the hostel/amount of people). 3) individual lights by the bed weren't working. 4: BIG ONE: not enough toilets and bathrooms! And they get super nasty, since it's one for around 15 people.


You'd have to be trying really, really hard to not have fun at this hostel. Awesome bar, great location, amazing staff. I've already stayed here twice and wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else while in Copenhagen.


One of the best hostels I've ever stayed in. Common areas were kept clean at all times and so the rooms. We spent here our New Years and for us it was defenately a party hostel, but the party was kept in the downstairs bar and not in the rooms. Atmosphere overall was friendly, staff were helpful, would defenately visit again.


Too much noise for a place where people should rest. People outside the bar talk all night under the windows so it is really stressful.


By far the best hostel I have stayed in up to this point! The staff was friendly and easy going and the atomosphere was truly amazing! The had live music 2 nights i was there and you can even play guitar to win shots! Not too much of a party hostel, but just right. The free dinner every night gave my wallet a break and the breakfast (even though you have to pay for it) is worth it. I met some awesome people during my stay and made some new friends. I highly recommend staying here if you visit


Nothing to complain about, it's a great place to stay ! All you need at the best price !! Thank you all :)
