    Good hostel with good beds and up to date facilities could have done with curtains for the beds. Good lively atmosphere at the bar and smoking area but could have done with more chill out areas that weren't a part of the bar quite busy and cool people around with a good location for walking to all of copenhagens sights.

    Fabulous

    The hostel is really well located, I walked everywhere pretty easily. It’s also safe, clean, social and the staff is nice! They always have music and people at the bar, which is a pretty cool area. I kinda expected it to be a little more exciting but I was there from a tuesday to a thursday, so I guess the weekend is cooler. The only thing I didn’t like was the shower, cause the pressure was too high (couldn’t regulate it) and everything was wet, so it was a bit inconvenient.

    Very friendly staff with amazing location near sights but also public transit. Lower score as the facilities were far from the cleanest and I was eaten alive by bugs during my one night stay there in a dorm.

    The laundry facilities are not for customer’s use but for employees. The room is a disaster, incredible dirty and full of rags and towels. The only options of the washing machine are bedsheets or towels. They claim they have a fridge but is smaller than a shoebox and even warms anything you put in there. The bar atmosphere brings on strange people who wander around. Not so safe if you are a girl traveling alone. In my room, a guy slept on a girls' bed and she found out when she was back.

    There was a speaker in the room that would emit a painfully loud high pitch noise every few minutes. Could not be disabled. Very long wait for check-in.

    The reception of the hostel is in a bar, which is in itself annoying has you have to wait that the waiter finishes giving drinks to let you to your room. The rooms are horrible and unclean - there was chips, empty cans and bottles everywhere in the room. I didn't get neither a towel or a locker. A lot of people from outside of the hostel where coming into the rooms to smoke weed. The bathrooms are unclean and from 4 showers available for a whole floor just three where working. The staff was rude

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. Jesper, Manager
