Nice hostel just 10min walk from the main station and the main shopping street. The staff was very nice and the double room we had was nice. Just the bed sheets were bit dirty. The Free dinner was amazing.


Enjoyed everything about the hostel!


Great hostel. Great bar downstairs with good deals and great for meeting people. Would be happy to stay again next time Im in Copenhagen.


The bathrooms and rooms were all a little cramped (I stayed in a female 4 bed dorm) and it was annoying to have to go down 4 flights of stairs to get a hairdryer or laundry tokens. The staff was very friendly and helpful, location was excellent!


Great atmosphere in the hostel, the lounge area is really cool. Just thought that should be more toilet/shower facilities in each floor, in the morning gets quite crowed and the hot water tends to disappear.


Great Hostel, would definitely recommend it


Really a nice hostel. It is located directly in the city centre, has a friendly staff, Wifi, a common kitchen and even it's own bar with cheap beer in the happy hour. At this hostel also begins one of the nice free tours through Copenhagen. My friends and me totally enjoyed the stay.


Fun hostel, with a Pub downstairs.


Not the cleanest and the most practical hostel ever, but a very social and cool athmosphere, perfect location, and well priced compared to other hostels in CPH. Don't go there for some quiet reflection days, but to have the greatest time with people you'll meet just like that during breakfast, free dinner or some beers in the evening.


We were very happy to eat the free dinner. The staff were very helpful, and the location was easy to get to from the airport and the train station. I recommend!


Kitchen too small for the amount of people. While obviously financially lucrative for the hostel, large school groups take over the place and detract from the atmosphere.

Hi C. Sad to hear this comments but low season usually we don't have a big flow of backpackers therefore all the kids! Sorry for that and hope next time to enjoy the music, football and parties around! Staff CPH Downtown


Everything was great in the hostel! It would be nice to have some shelves in all the rooms.

Great hostel! The location is perfect. Close to all the sightseeing areas and night time areas. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The atmosphere there is really nice, definitely a party vibe. I would highly recommend to other people and would definitely stay there again. Keep up the good work!!


We were in a room directly above the bar, and the music/noise made it hard to get to sleep. But otherwise this hostel was a great place to stay - cosy atmosphere, and really central to the city.


Beware, fellow introvert traveller: this hostel's common room is a bar, which makes it extremely cramped and noisy all day and night long. People felt entitled to party in their room, offering no respite even in the dorm. So: this is a party hostel, don't go there if you actually want to rest. Apart from that, it was insanely expensive with the same facilities as any other hostel, except maybe for the free rental of ipads (no pc though).

Hi A. Thanks for your comments. Please, for everyone, let always know about issues in your rooms and if you feel unconformtable. Cheers


It was just perfect!


For some reason, the ten bed dorm rooms don't have ten lockers or ten reading lights. My room (112) had 8 lockers and 6 reading lights. Some guests will get a locker and light, and some guests will not. That doesn't seem fair considering that we all paid the same price for the room. The staff was really, really friendly, but the hostel does suffer from some basic facilities shortages.

Hi Thanks for your comments. We are developing the locker and some extra facilities for the rooms so soon you will see these improved. Great to hear that you have a great experience overall! Thanks CPH Downtown Staff


Bathrooms were really off-putting.

Hi Thanks for your comments. We work on the batchroom cleaning everyday. Sometimes people forget to clean after themselve. Thanks CPH Downtown Staff


really fun. cool bar downstars, helpful staff, everything you would want in a hostel, beds were comfortable


Pretty decent overall, nice clean rooms and a fairly convenient location. Breakfast is great and with how expensive things are in Denmark, it's definitely worth having.
