Felt like a hotel but with dorm rooms. There were plenty of families among all your usual drunk Australians and stag party Englishmen. Location was perfect as you can quickly walk to most of Copenhagen's attractions. Booze prices were decent considering the alternatives. No AC and barely openable windows mean that the top floor was so INCREDIBLY hot that I woke up at 7am and slept for a few more hours in air conditioned common room.
I drove and there was plenty of parking nearby (have to pay for it, but it was only around 10 euros for the one day). Close walk to the T, cheaper places to eat and drink compared to old town. In the basement so it can feel a bit enclosed, especially the chill room/kitchen as there are no windows there Plenty of toilets and everything is kept up nicely.
The hostel itself is quite far from anything...though there isn't much going on in Helsinki to begin with. Thankfully it's close to a park that you can park free at which is near impossible in Helsinki. The hostel itself felt like a hotel, and the room we stayed in was far from the check in (access to internet). The room we stayed in is a dorm room so it brought back bad memories from freshmen year of college : ). Also no social atmosphere if that's something you're looking for, choose elsew
Sucks that you have to take off your shoes in the chill/bar area because the floor is sticky from beer spills the night before. World Cup Championship stream was poor quality so we left and watched at Freedom Square, which actually was a good thing. Abundance of bathrooms and showers was a plus, plenty of parking lots nearby, good quality internet, drinks were cheap, and proximity for old town was perfect because we are far enough away for cheaper food/drinks, yet close enough to walk.
Great location, relatively cheap, staff was kind, and the hostel (hotel) is about 20m from the water which is a plus. Not a place to meet other travelers. We drove and I thought we could park nearby the hostel, but that wasn't possible. Thankfully they give you a magnetic card that allows you to park for free outside of the town (take the short bus, or 20min walk)...though they do charge 5 euros for this transaction, so not completely free but better than the alternative
Great facilities: beds, showers, and toilets were all new and clean. Good location, close to everything and on a quiet street. Seemed like a great place for social interaction (though I had a flight at 7am the next day so didn't participate). I don't understand why, but I think 90% of the people staying there were Australian. If partying is your thing and you don't want to sacrifice a nice bed or facilities, Yes! is the place for you.
Amazing hostel! During our 4 week tour around europe this hostel was easily the best. The staff was wonderful and their hospitality is unmatched. We arrived early, and left late and during both times they were fine with us hanging out at the hostel. I seriously felt at home. The beds felt new and sturdy, air conditioning in the room, homemade breakfast included, and every evening activity was great especially the night we went to a fado show. They even lent us beach towels at no charge. :)
Too many people, poor toilets and showers spread across the hostel like a maze, and the beds were just plain awful. Those mattresses must be over 10 years old.
I think we had a different experience because we rented out the private two bed room which was located in a different building across the small street. The owner was a bit upset with us however because we didn´t arrive until 2am and woke him up. He seemed like a great guy and his tour sounded awesome, but we had to get back to Dubrovnik for a flight. If you are going to Croatia next, don´t mention it to them, I´m pretty sure they don´t like them so much.
Great location as it´s inside the walls, next to an amazing BBQ place, and it´s relatively cheap for Dubrovnik. Facilities could be better, 3 showers and only 2 toilets...however waiting wasn´t a problem for our stay. The downstairs kitchen is laid out well and is comfortable, but I think they could improve their patio outside. It´s okay, but it would be more inviting if it was cleaner, orderly, and more comfortable seats were provided.
Even though they were undergoing heavy renovation during our stay, I would still recommend Bada Bing. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful.
Decent for what it is. If you want to party and be close to all the tourists and La Rambles, then it's a great stay. Unfortunately we had some dumb Aussie break a bottle of booze in our room and throw a few over the balcony. If that's what you are looking for, then I'd recommend this hostel.
Only negative is having to walk through the bar to get to the shower...but that adds to the character! Everything else was great. Met a ton of locals at the bar, and the location is great as it only takes 5 minutes to be in the central square. Would definitely come back and recommend.

If you want to drink, go out and party, and not have to hassle to find your hostel after arriving from the train...Jaegers is PERFECT. We stayed in a 40 person dorm, and luckily our beds were in the very back, so we had no problems with taking naps in the afternoon, or falling asleep at 2am. The bar upstairs is a plus, so is the free wifi. Could use more showers and stalls, but hey, you get what you pay for. Good for backpackers on the cheap.
Wonderful location! Away from the tourists, but close enough to all the spots. My friend and I ended up wanting to stay in the local Piazza instead of joining the rest of the minions at the famous and overpriced places. The room we stayed in had its own bathroom and shower, so that was a plus.
Absolutely loved this hostel. The beds were sturdy and even though I jumped up on the top bunk at 4am, I didn't wake up the person on the lower one because the bed didn't shake : ) . When we stayed there they were having an art show, so that just added to the character. I enjoyed the location because it was away from the overwhelming amount of tourists that plague the Gothic and Rambles area. The metro is only a 3 minute walk, and La Sagrada Familia is about a 20 min walk away.
