You'll be moments from the action in our Hoscar-winning Copenhagen Downtown Hostel. We're between Christiansborg Palace and the funfair rides of Tivoli Gardens, so you can easily tick off the main sights and be back in time for our daily happy hour at the lounge-bar. Our Scandi design scheme is all bright colours, fun prints and retro furniture, everywhere from the live music venue to the café. We have an outdoor terrace just off the street as well – ideal if you need to cool off after a night of dancing.


With our awesome location in Copenhagen's old quarter, right by parliament and City Hall Square, you'll be a short hop away from sights like Kastellet fortress and the famous Little Mermaid statue. The famed commune of Freetown Christiania – Copenhagen's hippie autonomous district – is around 10 minutes by bus. Copenhagen's pretty compact, so grab a free city map and rent a bike at reception then head out to explore. You can book a spot on one of our free walking tours too. You can reach us from Copenhagen Airport by taking the metro to Norreport Station, and we're two stops on the 2A bus from Central Station.

    Probably the greatest hostel experience I’ve had on my solo trip throughout Europe. I would say this hostel is ideal for solo or group travelers who enjoy and want to meet new people, I’ve made a ton of new friends here. I’d definitely recommend it!

    Great location and great place to meet fellow travelers. However, between the street noise and bells ringing, it was hard to get good sleep.

    Great location, just a short walk from metro from the airport. Super quick and convenient to get to. A 10-15 minute walk to lots of places you will want to go in Copenhagen. Nice little bar area to hang out and meet people. Overall a pretty great hostel.

    The dorms are quite good with an outlet and light at each bed, although a bit warm in summer. The noise from the bar (that slowly becomes a nightclub) is quite loud, but can be blocked out easily enough with ear plugs. The location is fantastic and it won't take long to get anywhere that you want to go on foot or by bike!

    Overall, my stay at this hostel was good! The staff were kind enough to help me print my boarding pass and the room was had a hairdryer, which was nice. One thing that could be improved is the design of the showers. For at least one of the stalls, water pressure was not consistent so water kind of trickled out of most of the shower head. There was also not much of a divide between the shower and your things so the dry clothes could likely get wet. A curtain and strong water streams would help :)

    Great location and overall pretty cheap for what you get. Biggest complaints were that the WiFi was super spotty (I couldn't connect in my room at all) and I had to choose between closing the window and trying to sleep in a room that's too warm or opening the window and trying to sleep through the mass of people outside partying late into the night. So not the best place if you want a good night's sleep but great if you want to party.

    Staff were amazing and the bar is very cool. The facilities & toilets could be better. The showers flooded as the drains were blocked. The hostel has a nice vibe and is quite chilled. One of the coolest bars I've seen in a hostel and it's quite cheap for Scandinavia. Location is good also.

Copenhagen Downtown Hostel says

I think what puts us ahead of the rest is that we're the real backpackers' in town, made by travellers for travellers. We want you to experience the real Denmark, its people, its humor and its personality. I believe that this place is the expression of a hostel how should be all around the world - full of magic, activities, livable common areas and crazy people that give this place an enjoyable and fun atmosphere.
The common area features a Scandinavian retro design with recycled wooden floors from old Copenhagen apartments used for the tables and benches, plus a lot of bright colors, wall maps, and other design features to make the area warm and welcoming.
There's lots to do in this area but I definitely recommend visitng Christiania - the Freetown - a unique place occupied/squatted in 1971 and now a community, where people live and chill out. Furthermore, the place has grown with bars, cafés, restaurants, concert places, art and has its own very peculiar atmosphere.
If noticed in advance, we can provide all kinds of food/drinks for special needs, such as gluten-free bread. Lactose free milk (soya drink) is always in stock. Kim, Manager
