Definitely a good hostel with party vibe and comprehensive facilities. Two blemishes on an otherwise positive record: 1. Toilets which seem to be constantly clogged despite the cleaning crew signing off on them. 2. The guest fridge which was overfilled and seemed to never get cleared out (you may want to cook at Copenhagen restaurant prices). But had a great experience overall and would recommend.

Thanks for the feedback. We do clean our fridge twice a week and our reception staff is always available if there is any issue with toilets or in our kitchen. It is very nice to hear you had fun anyways, we hope to see you again :) Cheers from Downtown Team

Thanks a lot for taking the time and leaving us a review. We do have curtains in the rooms but we do not have a lot of darkness in scandinavian summer :) Great to know you have fun after all. Cheers from Downtown Team

One of the better hostels that I've stayed at. Everything was incredibly professional and everyone I encountered was rather friendly. The bar was always busy and everything you wanted to be included was essentially there.

Great atmosphere, really good bar and downstairs area. Lockers were a little small. Free dinner was terrible and very small portion. Breakfast good value for money. Good location. Staff very helpful. Good bike hire scheme. Was in a 10 bed dorm and beds were very close together with one practically in the middle of the room.

Thanks for your feedback. We are sorry to hear that you didn't get a lot of food from our free dinner, we do this activity with the intention of you tasting some nice food but most of all so you meet other guests, sharing is caring :) We do have big lockers in our basement able to fit several bags. Our lovely bar with daily events going on where you can taste amazing cocktails or dance listening to our live music is the best best place to make friends. Cheers from Downtown Team

Best hostel bar I've ever seen with reasonable prices and surprisingly good food. Great atmosphere and the staff is always helpful. Only cons are the small rooms and the fact that WiFi doesn't really work in the first floor rooms.

Staff were amazing. The bar is actually a bar. Most hostels the bar is just a beer fridge, but here it's the real deal. I spent a full day just sitting outside the hostel bars on the bean bags chilling and drinking. Breakfast is good but pretty steep. Pretty much everyone is the hostel is down to hang out. Really easy to meet people and have a good time. The free dinner is also an added bonus. Rooms were good as well, beds were comfy and didn't make much noise. The washrooms were a little gross.

Thanks so much for the review! We have a bar full of activities and live music where locals come and meet up because it is just chill and very easy to socialize :) We are happy to know you took a bite of our free dinner, next time please let reception know if you find any cleaning issues so we can sort it out on the spot. Cheers from Downtown Team

I never complain about noisy places, no problem to sleep, but this place is really noisy, so if you want to relax forget it. Excellent location.

Thanks for your feedback. We are located in a very central spot surrounded of busy streets and cosy bars so it can get busy sometimes. Reception is available to help you anytime and we also have free earplugs :) Hope you enjoyed your stay, cheers from Downtown Team

The staff was super helpful when I needed to make a frw arrangements due to problems with my luggage at the airport! I like that they have chargers and bike rentals available... one thing I do have to mention, though, is that when I arrived to my bed, there was change on it and a bit of litter, so it makes me believe it wasn't cleaned before I slept on it.

Great location and great atmosphere. Only comment would be the bathrooms are not the best and there definitely aren't enough.

Owner Comment (Hide)
Thanks so much for taking time and writing us your feedback. We are a pretty busy hostel and bathrooms are constantly busy that's why on rush hours you can access all the floors so you don't have to queue and our cleaning team is 17 hours on house so you can always let us know :) Hope you enjoyed the city and the stay with us. Cheers from Downtown Team

Good hostel in a good location. Everything was reasonably priced for Copenhagen. Free dinner was a nice advantage!

The staff was so friendly! It's also a great place to meet people if your traveling alone. A whole floor shares 3 bathrooms but it wasn't ever a problem, the bathrooms would get really crowded right before check out(excepted). Overall it's an amazing hostel and I highly recommend you stay here.

It is said to be the best hostel in Copenhagen. I didn't see any others but this one is just an average hostel. The location is great, close to the center and also close to main station. But rooms are only equipped with bunk beds and some folding chairs. No lockers, no table and not even shelves to put your phone next to your bed. Bathrooms outside the rooms, what is fine. The queues weren't too bad in the morning and cleanliness was ok. Atmosphere at the bar downstairs was nice. It's OK!

Thanks a lot for taking the time and leaving us a review. We do have lockers available for renting, just come by reception and our lovely staff will help you. We know our rooms are basic but they have all the necessary stuff, we believe what makes your trip a fantastic experience is outside them:) Socializing is a vital part of our concept and we work hard on making it happen that's why we are the best hostel in Copenhagen. Hope to see you soon next time in Copenhagen. Cheers from Downtown Team
