Location is excellent. Helpful Staff and cosy reception /bar Area. Stayed in with my friends in a 4-people room. Clean beds, but hard. And lumpy pillows. Small, but ok bathroom with shower. It would be Nice with someplace to hang the towel etc. Only cold water in the morning. Worst was the noise from the reception, the bar is open...

Not just the music from the bar downstairs till one AM, but the paper thin walls means conversations and, eh, other noises from next door are a serious obstacle to sleep. And the plumbing is not that quiet either. Nice breakfast, mind

If you're into sleeping during the night, this place isn't for you. Loud party and consert in the backyard all night. Drunken people is stumbling in all through the night. If you're looking for a party stay in Copenhagen, this is definitely a place for you. Great happy hour offers and good vibes. It was clean, but plumping in showers...

The central location of this hostel puts you right between many of the downtown sights: Tivoli Garden, the museums, city halls, royal palaces and the food halls. For the price, you get an OK bed in a very small room (it was so narrow I couldn't even snap a pic of the beds). Showers and bathrooms were located at the...

The location is ok, but Copenhagen is a small, walkable city anyway. The staff at reception were helpful, especially Sully who helped me with my train timetable to the airport. It is a party place, with the bar open until 5am (every night, I think!) Large windows in the bar open to the street which is nice for smokers. I...

We reserved beds in what we thought to be a St. Christopher's hostel, only to find out this was the place.

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.
