I woke up with 20-30 bed bugs bites on my body after 1 night here. That should tell you, DO NOT STAY here.

Other problems include beds literally crammed into the rooms (1 foot apart from each other), drunken teenagers running around all night, NO locks on the doors and crap lockers in the basement, labyrinth of hallways to find a toilet/shower and of course, the receptionist tried to rip us off when we checked in, by not giving us correct change.

Oh yeah and the mattresses are about 1 inch thick.

BUUUUT, excellent location, low price, good breakfast.

I think this place is slightly better during the week, when the Danish teenagers and English chavs are gone.

I f your looking for a short stay in Denmark and want quick access to trains and the main area of Copenhagen then this is a decent hostel. If however you want a private shower and a little bit more personal space you are better with a cheap hotel.

My stay here was pleasant but I couldn't stay for more than one week.

Overall what you would expect from the cheapest hostel in Copenhagen. OK but far from good. however the breakfast is fairly decent.

We stayed here for two nights before heading out for an interrail trip around Europe. We booked in at a 10-bed room. And it was not a plesant experience! The room was not cleen at all. A class of highschool childen on a schooltrip were running arround in the stairs both nights! The showers must have been from somwhere around the 50's (old), and the showers at the first floor was approximately about 1 sq. meter!!! Breakfast was ok. But after 1 month around Europe this was the worst hostel experience we had!

The room was small (or rather, for its size, they had packed too many bunkbends into it). The -common- showers were improvised with curtains in a room in the basement, and weren't exactly the cleanest I've seen. The location is very good, the common room is quite nice, and the breakfast buffet is great. A pity that the facilities were not at the same level.

I stayed 3 nights in the Hostel Jørgensen. I was in the 12 - bed dorm, and I must admit, this wasn't a really good experience.

Upon arrival, the staff was rather friendly, and even though I checked in before the room was ready, I was still able to put my suitcase in a locker and take a shower.

But this was the highlight of my stay. The Hostel has absolutely no security. There are NO LOCKS on the doors, so this mean than anyone can come in at any time. There was a group of students staying at the same time, and they often had problems finding their rooms, so kept opening our door during the night.

There are also NO LOCKERS in the rooms. To store your belongings you have to go through the maze of stairs and corridors that is this hostel to get to a filthy "locker room", where the lockers are simply 4 pieces of wood with room for a padlock (bring your own).
The rooms weren't dirty (they were definitely vacuumed every day), but the furniture was quite obsolete and old, especially the 3-bed-bunkbeds, with no ladder and no security to prevent from falling during the night.

There was a 'bathroom' in the room (i.e. the entrance was in the room) with 3 toilets (clever for 12 people) but one common shower. With no privacy whatsoever, I found it quite difficult to enjoy my shower in the morning, knowing that anyone could come in (no locks on the bathroom door) or that my belongings in the room weren't safe.

Granted, the location is pretty good: a few minutes from Nørreport Station (with trains, underground and buses) and within walking distance of the main attractions, but I don't think it's worth the trouble. It's quite cheap (for CPH at least), but I've stayed in 'cheap' hostels in CPH before that didn't make me feel so unsafe!
