Copenhagen Downtown Hostel was rated the Most Popular Hostel in Copenhagen in 2015, and it's easy to see why. They're centrally located, just between Christiansborg Palace and the Tivoli gardens, within walking distance of Kastellet, the Little Mermaid and Freetown Christiania. Many Hostelworld guests have said 'it's probably the best value for price you will without leaving the central area'. We like that this clean hostel loans out hair dryers, laptops and iPads. The onsite bar and cafe has games and a daily happy hour.

    No complaints at all! Everything perfect in the hostel, toilets and showers super clean, great atmosphere. Close to train station, making it easy to get there from the airport, central location and close to most of the touristic spots! Would definitely stay again!

    Great party hostel, great location and bar which has a mix of people from the hostel and locals which is great for meeting people. The negatives are that as a solo traveller they don't organise nights out together but this is fine if you're able to put yourself out there and meet people

    The hostel was nice. There is a very active bar scene. The bathrooms were always out of toilet paper though and the showers flooded

    Fantastic place to say. Great things to say about everything except the bathrooms and showers which were still fine, just not great. They were clean but still smelled unfortunately. Also it was fairly noisy most of the time, not just on weekends. On the plus side, staff were always helpful, courteous, kind, and amazing. Ambience fantastic, the bar, though noisy, was fun, engaging, and easy to meet/mingle with others. Great location, easy to walk or public transport anywhere. Highly recommend!

    About 50 USD per night for 2.5 m2 per person (about 10 m2 for 4 beds) is quite expensive, even in Copenhagen, but the location is great, just in the old town center. I felt the spings of the matress in my back, they could change the matresses once in a while. Staff is friendly and helpful

    Great hostel with perfect location. The only bad thing is that you have to pay to rent the towel and also to leave the luggage in the locker room.

    I really enjoyed my stay! The hostel is in a perfect location with all the main attractions only a short walk away. Rooms were very big and the beds were extremely comfortable (probably the comfiest hostel bed I’ve slept on). Staff at the reception were lovely. Walking tour was great! Only downside is the hostel is also a bar and on fridays and Saturday’s they play loud music until really late, like 5am. They do give out free earplugs at reception though. Definitely recommend this hostel.

    I LOVED Copenhagen! The hostel location is really central and convenient. There are many good places to eat nearby; if you’re looking to find cheap eats I’d recommend searching Copenhagen cheap eats on google. Everything is within walking distance! The vibe of the hostel is fun; everyone in my room was respectful. The lockers under the beds were nothing fancy but did the job. My only nonperfect experiences were with the staff: not nearly as warm and friendly as I found Denmark in general

    Hostel was great. Staff were great. Overall it’s a great place to stay. The showers and bathrooms are cramped. The rooms are cramped in too. Also you have to rent a locker if you are there early or checking out late. But if you can deal with the tight squeeze then it’s not an issue. It wasn’t an issue for me and I enjoyed my stay. Good location too. Close to train and sights. Cheers

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
