I arrived late and I was greeted in a friendly way. The music was playing very loud. Like a club atmosphere. The rooms and beds were nice and comfortable as well as clean.

The room and bed was clean. They had lockers avaible during the day. The under bed storage was large enough. The bed was comfortable also. Very lively bar scene.

This is a typical hostel with exceptional staff. The rooms were a bit small but clean and the common rooms/ bar were great. Vito in particular was very friendly and helpful receptionist/bartender. Already rebooked to stay again. Thank you!

Nice hostel, safe, good staff. Kitchen was ok, maybe a little more cleaning soap, etc. But Was great to have kitchen there. My only complaint( and that is, because I am a older person (69), the noise level was Too high for me

Within a block from a lot of great attractions in Copenhagen. A fun vibe, but definitely younger. If you're not interested in the 20s crowd, don't stay here. Noisy but in the right ways, I enjoyed the atmosphere.

The hotel had a nice feel to it, felt a lot more like a commune then a hotel. The set up encourages everyone to communicate, and it was the easiest to build relationships at this environment as compared to other hostels I had stayed at.

Here for 2 nights with a friend. We stayed in a private room with bunk beds and a private small bathroom. Beds were pretty comfortable but we weren't too happy with the bathroom layout and plumbing.

Had a great time at this place. Was quite clean, secure, and close to the sites I wanted to see. One of the shower's water was scalding hot, but the other one I used was totally fine. I liked the vibe of this place and would definitely stay here again if I go back to CPH.

I really enjoyed staying here. It was super easy to make friends with the other people in my room and overall seemed geared towards younger travelers. The bar area was a cool place to hang out at night and there was a happy hour special. The only complaints that I have are that the area was a little loud and the bathrooms were dirty. I think it being loud was okay since the location was so central and you can expect that. I wish that the guests staying there had attempted to keep the bathrooms cleaner or that the staff cleaned them more than once a day.

I really like this hostel, because of the location and social events, however, they charge approximately 1 EURO per hour.

This place is great if you are a heavy sleeper, like to stay up and party, don't mind loud construction noises early in the morning, and don't mind spend nights with people who really know how to mess up the bathrooms. The cleaning staff does work VERY hard to keep the bathroom area clean & probably show up at least 4-5 times a day. But the people who stay there really know how to leave hair, trash, and water on the floor as soon as the cleaning crew leaves. In additions to construction noises, you must not mind the heavy music from downstairs, the slamming doors, and such, in the middle of nights. Must bring everything (towel, soap, etc.) or pay. Excellent location.

One of the better hostels I have stayed in. Only complaints are that the WIFI wasn't consistent, our room smelled of mildew, the beds were soooooo squeaky and the woman at the front desk was rude when I was checking in. The rest of our stay was great though. The free dinner was awesome although you need to be there 30 minutes before it starts to get a seat, but I met people who made my time in Copenhagen lots of fun. Something I noticed was that the bartenders at Happy Hour didn't really know what qualified for Happy Hour and what didn't. The location was perfection! It was the best hostel I stayed in in Scandinavia.
