Me and a friend recently stayed in this hostel. We had a private twin room with private bathroom, the room consisted of bunk beds which where fine for the two of us. The bathroom was very small with the shower basically over the toilet meaning when you used the shower absolutely everything was dripping wet with barely room to wash,...

This place is in the centre of town quite close to the central train station which makes it close to the main square and all the major sites. It's a quite cool place because it's very clean, the rooms are nicely spaced, the furniture is rather new, there's a pub downstairs and guests of the hostel have a discount for...

Location couldn't be better. All attractions are walking distance, as are pubs, shops, whatever. Beds are comfy and each has power socket, light and locker. Rooms are now with key card access. Showers and toilets are good also But the best part is the atmosphere in the bar area. I stayed for Friday and Saturday nights and the place was...

The staff was so nice and helpful with all of my questions and they provided recommendations for everything I asked (places to eat etc.). The bar was a great place to meet people and socialize or just have a beer if you didn't want to go out on the town. They had a singer there on Thursday and that was...

Very clean. Nice beds. We have been in a 6 bed room and were really clean, bathroom and shower. Only a negative thing, very noisy, is a party hostel, on the bar next to the reception they do a live music, happy hour, so oh can expect people will be coming in and out of your room. I really did...

We were three friends staying at this hostel for a weekend. The location is absolutely great, being close to many good spots in Copenhagen such as bars, cafees and sights. The vibe of the hotel is also very good. However, living in Sweden I would say we are not sensitive to high prices. But I do find this hostel expensive....

The travellers, vibes and especially the STAFF here are amazing! No matter what condition you're in, they bend backwards to help out. The live music; happy hour; shared meals and all you can eat breakfasts really make this hostel a special place. Special thanks to Elmar -Brolin

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.
