Pluses: Nice location, friendly staff, really good breakfast and fairly clean place with a cozy lounge Minuses: Only 2-3 showers for each floor, and shower time was restricted to 7-10am in the morning, which for me was weird. Also, lockers cost money! They are fancy and automatic, so you can be sure the stuff in there is safe, but if...

I came with a friend for a 3 night weekend break and we both really loved the hostel. I was in a 4 bed dorm and the room was functional and clean, and I had no problems with noise or the shared bathrooms. The main bar really made the experience as it was such a friendly place with great music.

This was my first hostel experience, I stayed with two friends in a 4 person dorm and we had an amazing time. We're all pretty social people and the bar was an amazing way to meet people. The breakfast was delicious and generous, and free if you book through the hostel's site. There are huge lockers (I fit a backpack...

I adore this place. I stayed there for a few weeks on and off in summer 2016. The hostel itself is nice, but not that luxurious. I feel like you get what you pay for, it's not too cheap but it's not expensive either. I always slept well there, but I feel like the upper bunks are a bit cramped....

The staff was really friendly and helpfull when we needed some information. Security is great, rooms are big enough.The atmosphere is awesome since the main room...

This place is so friendly, with great location. Stuff is very pleasant. Breakfast is good. We did not hear any noise in the room (on the second floor), did not have any problems with shared toilets/shower. We never stay in hostels before, but now I see it is perfect solution to save money. If we will come back to Copenhagen,...

I liked how lively the hostel is. The reception essentially doubles up as a bar and a breakfast lounge. So you would never feel alone while you are staying there. They have options for everyone; If you want a single room, you can get a single room or if you want to share it with other travelers that is also...

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.
