If you are looking for a hostel, look no further. The location is excellent, the staff is very friendly and the breakfast is good. The rooms are hostel rooms of course, so don't expect luxury or a lot of space, but everything is very clean. We had a nice view of the city from or room. Only downside was that...

Thank you very much - and you are right, we have very few very, very warm days in Denmark, so usually this is not a problem

I paid the same price overall for a superior room at the Ritz Carlton in Singapore the week before I arrived in this Danhotel. We had a small room of 8 sqm for four and my face bumped into the bed corner at face level when I stood up to go to the bathroom. It definitively made my stay a...

We are sorry that you had a bad experience at our hostel. We know our rooms are not very big, but they do all have their own toilet/bath and a little front room, which few hotels in town have. As we are a hostel and not a hotel - instead of big rooms , we have many common areas, where...

Our family of 5 (3 children aged 6-10) stayed here and met 2 friends. The staff were very helpful and changed our rooms around so they were next to each other and so that we could check in early. Excellent location. Great kitchen for self catering. The family room is small and is mainly for sleeping however this is no...

Immaculate hostel. So clean throughout. The staff were all very friendly and helpful with good advice. Very central location - 2 minutes walk from central square. A very short walk from the train station. Amenities include guest kitchen (spotless), guest dining room (spotless), laundry and good wifi. Breakfast available.

This is your typical nordic/scandinavian hostel: clean, lots of amenities, a bit sterile, friendly staff, great value for money! We stayed at a 4 person family room, but it fits 5 (bunkbeds). The room had a decent size. There's a shower and toilet at every room and that's great for a hostel. The shower is okay (shower curtain doesn't do...

Thank you very much for having taken time to review our hostel. We are happy that you and your kids had a good time in Ribe and in our hostel. The factory you are talking about is our very good neighbour. They make radiators and we have never heard that they should have disturbed any of our guests.

This hostel had everything we needed including free wifi. Also the staff were really friendly and helpful plus the breakfast buffet was plentiful. The only thing I would complain about would be the price. It's very high and so is the breakfast. I mean when you compare it to the other Danhostels (same private room) you wonder why it's almost...

We stayed a night. We got a room for family with a view to the city.The room and the hotel is very clean and cozy. Breakfast is optional--you can order it, but the hostel has a clean shared kitchen with basic equipment (plates, cups, pans, water boilers, small oven, coffee maker)--so you can cook as well. The staff is friendly...
