I still have everything in my mind. Welcoming staff, great organization, full of services and activities. Most sociable hostel I've personally ever stayed. If you got any occasion, join every single one of their activities! Cleaniness was nothing exceptional, but overall it was not that bad.

Very nice environment overall, with large bar and common area. Great location in the very center of Copenhagen. Staff very young and kind and they all speak perfect english. You can also cook your food in their kitchen, rent a bike or whatever. Very good, I recommend it.

The Copenhagen Downtown Hostel was a really nice place to stay for a couple of nights. Even in the ten bed dormitories it was kind of quiet as everyone cared about not to disturb the others too much. The staff was very friendly and one night there even was live music in the bar which offers drinks for reasonable prices...

modern, clean, and with a very stylish decor. The location is really excellent. I really liked the privacy provided by the clean bathrooms. The bar gets quite noisy at times but the location is large so it can be escaped.

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.
