Good food, beds comfy, nice atmosphere. However if you want to get comfortable on the toilet in your room, you'll be doing it in the dark or waving like a maniac to turn the lights back on. Otherwise all good.

It is more of an hostel, shouldn't be mislead as an hotel. If you want a nice quite night sleep this is not for you. If you want to engage with other people I suppose this is it. The room was always bright and a lot of noise until late hours of the night, music and shouting on the corridors....

By far the best hostel I've ever stayed in in my travels through Europe. The location is perfect right in the city centre. It's clean, bright and has spacious bedrooms. The bar/restaurant area is fantastic with cool lights and a relaxed hip atmosphere. The food is brilliant for a hostel with a 'happy hour' every night for cheap drinks. The...

I would definitely recommend this hostel and would return to stay here. It was clean, felt safe and in a great location, only a few minutes walk from Nyhavn and Rosenborg Palace. It was a great place to meet people, staff were able to give good recommendations on where and what to do, and was just a great environment. Only...

Well located for the Christmas Markets, Metro and Buses to various parts of the city and Malmo in Sweden. Food expensive. Patrons should be allowed to bring in their own food. Dorms are clean. School groups should be advised to keep quiet with respect to other patrons.

I stayed at an 8 bed dorm. Even though there were 2 shower rooms, the toilet was only one and those shower rooms were too small. I don't think the location is good as need to walk for 10 min to the nearest station. However, many supermarkets were around there, so it was easy to get snacks and drinks.

Of the hostels I've stayed in this is the best. The staff were helpful and friendly and the facilities were nice and clean. Definitely a great choice for friends or solo travelers looking to save money on a hotel.

Staying in Indre By (Inner City)

Neighbourhood Profile
Indre By (Inner City)
This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its blend of charming old buildings and bold new architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which consists of three buildings, two of which are new and situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and venues of the inner city and its surrounding neighborhoods, are alive all year round with everything from jazz festivals to outdoor ice skating rinks and parachuting at the lakes right in the center of the city. This compact area boasts beautiful old castles, tranquil parks, and bustling squares where you can always find a bench to stretch out your legs whenever you need a break.
