“Worst hostel of my trip”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 September 2013

I guess this hostel isn't terrible, but compared to the other hostels I've stayed at throughout Europe it was by far the worst and the most expensive. Our room was smelly and damp and the sheets had holes in them and were stained. Toilets didn't always flush. I was in the second building which was kinda creepy. It's pretty far from the city center and the tourist stuff so be prepared to walk. Also the neighborhood was described as "cool and trendy", it would be more comparable to the bad areas of brooklyn.

This is by far the best hostel I've ever stayed in.
The staff are friendly. The area (Norrebro) is really interesting and lively. There are restaurants and bars just around the corner and two cheap supermarkets as well.
The rooms are clean, the people are amazing, their happy hour makes drinking affordable and it's not far to the city centre at all.
Would recommend it to anyone visiting Copenhagen.

I didn't actually wake up in this hostel because they cancelled my reservation when I appeared at the reception counter. They said that I exceeded their age limit of 36 years. The age limit did not appear on their website when I made the reservation. If you are less than 37 years old you might not be turned away as I was, but you will still have to deal with the clumsy and insensitive management that told me to go find something else.

This is a good hostel to stay at if you want to take in a bit more of the city center. It is located in a very nice, multicultural area of copenhagen, which makes a good starting point to visit the city. The hostel looks new and well maintained. Facilities are clean, beds are comfortable and there is a nice gathering area with a good bar, cheap beer and happy hour. A great place to meet other travellers. Staff were nice, but I wish they had been a bit more involved with the hostel life, as they did not seem very passionate about who was visiting, why and how to make the experience great for them - which is something that often makes the difference.

I consider this to be an average hostel, no real annoyances but also nothing I would eagerly reccomend. They have three-level beds, maybe not so comfortable. It is a bit annoying that they do not have a kitchen and also that one is not allowed to bring own alcohol (it is no problem to BUY alcohol in the hostel, more expensive as in the supermarket of course).
During high season in Copenhagen one should book in advance, I was lucky to be able to book the probably last bed in copenhagen the day before arrival.

Stayed in the deluxe 6 bed mixed dorm. Very friendly staff, helpful in explaining how to get to the room (involves a short walk about 20m down the street from where the office is).
Room was surprisingly large with a good amount of space. Each bed had a locker which was opened by keycard, and contained your linen for the bed.
Didn't have any late night noise issues, but plenty of screaming children in the morning from the neighbourhood.
Main downside was not enough toilets/showers, so the wait in the morning was significant.
Otherwise a lovely place to stay.

The hostel is pretty far from the center, at least 2 km, so be prepared if you're going to visit the city by walking. The best part of this hostel was the atmosphere at all, receptionist and people are really warm and friendly; the room was too small for 12 persons and was really hot. There's no kitchen so you have to eat outside, but if you pay there's breakfast which looked pretty good. Bathroom are clean as the whole building, if I'll come back to Copenhagen and I'll be looking for a cheap but decent accomodation I'll come back :)
