Hostelworld says

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.

    Best hostel I've stayed at hands down. Awesome location, awesome atmosphere, awesome staff and overall pretty clean rooms and bathrooms. It's located on top of the Downtown Pub and because of that it's very easy to make friends and get to know other travellers. Although the pub is open until 5am you hear close to nothing in your room. Would stay again.

    CPH has a great atmosphere for meeting cool people, with lots of events going on all the time. If you just want a quiet night, it's not impossible, but I recommend earplugs if you're staying on the first floor, otherwise you're fine. Super fun, super inviting, super accessible!

    Fabulous

    19 Jul 2019
    Great location and amazing to chill, party and meet people solo travellers as well as locals. My only complaint would be the floors outside the showers are dangerous and slippery to the point that I slipped and was rendered unconscious for a while. The cleaner who happened to be there did nothing to assist and it was another resident who helped. This is no reflection on the rest of the staff as they are all brilliant and helpful but my advice before someone is seriously injured sort floor.

    If you’re looking to meet people, have a place to chill 24/7, and party every night, this is your place. The staff was friendly and the atmosphere was very welcoming. However, the facilities could have been cleaner, which I’m sure is hard to maintain when the whole floor has to share toilets and showers. My biggest disappointment with this hostel was how much they try to squeeze all the money they can from you. You have to pay for everything: towel, breakfast, lockers, etc.

    Very Good

    13 Jul 2019
    Location is perfect, super central and easy to find. Staff were amazing, had a personal issue whilst staying and they went above and beyond to help me. No kitchen was no issue. Downsides were cleanliness (there were dirty socks under my bed when I arrived/showers often had mud in - although hostel do ask people to remove shoes). Also bar downstairs by night is a very loud, party place, not a venue to easily relax and chat in and no other common spaces. Would stay again purely for location

    Quite disappointing, not very clean, no access to any facilities such as a wee kitchen or even sink to wash dishes, you need to pay for lockers if you want to keep your stuff for a bit. Elevator tiny and doesn’t go up to top floor. Staff - some friendly, some not at all. Door to hallways often left open.

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
