    We had to pay for bed sheets additional charge which wasn't mentioned anywhere over here. They also wanted us to get some hostel member card in order to get the price quoted online. With additional cost in mind we could have booked regular 2-3 star hotel for the same price. Just outside the hostel there's a bar with beer all around, so you can't get a good night sleep either. Staff wasn't considerate at all. Don't buy/eat breakfast over there as it's too expensive for what you are getting.

  • Group of friends

    The fact that we could storrage our luggage there until they could told us if they could solve the booking problem.

    The receptionstaff was not kind or helpful.

    it my first experience to stay in hostel. I was surprised that bed linen was not included in price on Booked.net. Maybe I have missed this information. But, the total price with extra cost for bedlinen was equal to standard double room in 3 star hotel

    The hostel is well located! Great place if you need a close place just to crash at 5am every morning just to get some sleep.

    Rooms and showers not clean! Bed sheets we rented were clean but the covers and pillows were disgusting!

    I would not stay there again.

    Other than the location. I did not find anything to like about this hotel. Compared to other Dan Hostels it is scruffy and expensive.

  • Group of friends

    It"s being well located may be the only good feature. Just in the middle of the centre!!

    The staff were uninterested with us, made us wait had some chit chat then came back to us. It was the busiest day of the month and we hardly found a place to stay so eventually some problems came up but they spoke Danish between instead of trying to explain what is wrong to us. Another problem was we only had one window in the room where 10 people stayed. No fresh air at all.

    Close to central station, tivoli, etc.

    Facility not so good, expecially in toilet, my daughter was hurt by a broken paper tray.

  • Group of friends

    i liked the groundlevel facilities and admosphere allot.

    i've never seen toilets and bathrooms that dirty, and not beeing cleaned! realy nasty

  • Family with children

    Nice location

    No good hotel for a 3 member family

  • Group of friends
    5.4

    The staff at the front desk were nice and the hostel is in a great location. Kitchen was tops and common bar was really nice.

    Hot water didn't work (temporary problem). Heaps of hidden charges (eg you have to sign up to be a member to stay). You have to pay to rent a locker before you checkin, and you have to walk up and down quite a few stairs to get to the luggage room. Huge problem if you have many bags.There was a heap of teenagers there as well who were running amok but I guess that's not the hostel's fault.

  • Couple
    5.4

    the family feeling in the air

    1) The 5,25% fee payed for the transactions: the highest payed in Copenhagen! an average of 3% higher than any other place! 2) the light entering the room at morning time.
