I stayed at Downtown Copenhagen hostel in May of 2017, and it definitely lived up to its high ratings. I was in a four bed dorm, where each of the beds were pretty comfortable had a very large locker space under the bed (that could fit at least one large suitcase, probably two) and there was a sink and a...

The Downtown Hostel in Copenhagen has a great location, it's only a 10 minute walk from the train station. Reception was smooth, the dorm room was clean and there was lockable storage space for each person. The toilets and showers were at their cleanest right after the cleaning staff had visited in the morning, and got a little dirty by...

This was by far the best hostel I've stayed in! It's a great environment and fun bar. The staff member Justas was one of the best people I met during my whole month in Europe. Wishing I could go back already!

Basically everytime you went to the bathroom you would either be missing toilet paper or soap.. or both.. I complained several times but it happened continually over my 5 day stay. Also the bathroom floors would always be soaked from the shower and dirty, so always wear shoes. Room was stuffy and cramped. Otherwise the hostel was alright, the bar...

I spent a weekend in Copenhagen with a friend. They were very helpful throughout our stay and location was great. Our beds were VERY comfortable and room was really spacious. My only complaint would be that there were very few showers in our floor (6th floor). Although very good and powerful, it did need some cleening from time to time,...

Great location. Close to everything! We stayed there for 4 days and we only used the train to go to the airport. The hostel provides many activities everyday, breakfast, live music etc in reasonable prices for Copenhagen. However the bathrooms and the toilets were dirty 90% of the times we had to use them. There was a strong smell not...

The Copenhagen downtown hostel was just Marvelous. It has a great lively bar + common area which is function throughout the day. The beds too are nice and clean. Wooden beds and high ceiling gives it a old world flavor which makes the stay even more pleasant. Just one suggestion - please make the luggage storage free.

I stayed here with two friends and we had a great experience. We met tons of other great travelers at breakfast and on the free walking tours that pick up from the hostel. The place was clean, and you can't get a better location for Copenhagen! There is free wifi and "free dinner" if you book online. The place is...

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.
