Property Information:

Hostelworld users voted us the #1 hostel in Denmark at the 2009 Hoscars!

The five-star Danhostel is located on H.C. Andersens Boulevard, a 10-minute walk from the central train station and bus terminal.

With 1,020 beds, we’re Europe’s biggest hostel.

Apart from the building’s exceptionally fine view over the city’s skyline, the Opera House and Islands Brygge, we’re centrally located within walking distance of all major attractions, City Hall Square, Tivoli and the always-bustling city centre.

We offer free Wi-Fi in all our rooms as well as an internet café and TV room. Grab a free book or leave one for others in our book exchange.

If you're looking for more liquid entertainment, make yourself comfortable in one of Copenhagen’s cheapest bars, located right in our lobby!

Our restaurant offers an all-you-can-eat breakfast buffet for an unbeatable price.

We are looking forward to welcoming you to our hostel and our fantastic city!

Please note that children under the age of 12 are not permitted to stay in the dormitory rooms.

Please read our Things to Note below before booking.

Great news!

The construction of our brand new lobby, new reception, new lounge and super cool new bar in our new dining hall has started!

Additionally, we are modernising out elevators in order to make it easier and faster for our guests to move around the house.

We will stay open during the construction period and we will continue to offer breakfast buffet, access to communal kitchen, possibility for purchasing refreshments, coffee, tea, etc.

During the construction period, noise will occur at times but we and our great workmen will do our very best to minimise this. Work, that might make noise, is restricted to be conducted Monday-Friday between 9AM and 5PM.

Our new bar and restaurant are expected to be ready at spring 2015. Until then, coffee, tea, water, soft drinks and snacks can be purchased in our reception, which is open 24 hours. We continue to serve our breakfast buffet every day between 7 and 10, which can be bought at the reception, and which can be enjoyed on the ground floor during the period of reconstruction.

We are looking forward to welcoming our guests to an even greater and nicer Danhostel Copenhagen City, when we in 2015 welcome you in brand new settings with ultramodern and stunning design!

    The kitchen was terrible, dirty and uncomfortable. There were not enough common areas for the whole hostel. The bed line, luggage room and locker had an excessive price. The room was ok, with not enough electricity inlets. Bathroom dirty and check out at 10 am, too early for european standards.
