As good as a basic hotel but half the price. Really central, lovely and warm. Clean. Would have liked a bath mat and to be able to make a cup of tea but that’s cause I’m British!

Simple yet good

Pros: Good value for Copenhagen area
Cons: Room is very basic, although I understand it is a hostel and that is the concept. Simple and cheap
Location: Few minutes to the station, close to nice shops and lots of places to eat.
The hostel is located near to the station. It has a nice communal area around the reception with a bar and lots of seating. Perfect area for socialising. The room was very simple but comfortable and clean. Okay for 1 night, we arrived at 11pm and checked out at 10am the next day to move onto a hotel in a different part of Copenhagen for 3 nights. Staff at the desk were polite and competent

Great hostel, Perfect central location

Hostel in perfect central location, everything within walking distance from main attractions, transport and shops. Staff were very friendly and helpful with all questions. Only downside was there isn't a kitchen to make/cook own food and I thought bar area would stay open a bit longer but other than that it was fantastic. I would definitely go again.

Beaucoup de poussière sur les chauffages donc impossible de l’allumer. Espaces communs pas très propres. Draps/serviettes qui traînent au milieu des couloirs.
