We arrived on a Tuesday, in the lashing rain. We waited for 35 minutes at reception whilst one member of staff dealt with a customer and another 4 stood around drinking tea.
Not a good start for 4 tired, cold, wet and hungry travelers.
Eventually, we were served and to our dismay, we were told that we must pay extra because we weren't members of hosteling international- (my card ran out the month before) something that wasn't advertised in the price. When asked if we needed sheets we declined as we had sleeping bags, to which we were told that we couldn't use them and would have to rent sheets.
If we hadn't been so weary, the bags would've been back on our backs for a trek for new accommodation in the pouring rain, however, none of use had the energy and so we conceded.
Upon arrival in the room we noticed the view. Then the smell. Then the filth of the place.
There were stains all over the beds, floor, walls and ceiling. I've seen more hygienic toilets in a prison tour I once did and the shower was utterly disgusting.
Normally I would be straight back to reception to complain but we were so tired that we just didn't care anymore.
We were told check out was 10am. At 9:50, a member of staff barged in on us and told us that if we weren't checked out in 5 minutes, that we would be charged another nights stay.
We proceeded down to reception and were greeted by two absolutely irate staff.
They told us that if we didn't pay for another nights stay, they would ring the Police.
We grudgingly paid and left on the first train we could.
5 star hostel?!!
I have stayed in many hostels, in many places and take the good with the bad but it's a rare occurance that I would actually dissuade someone from staying in a particular place but I will never set foot in that hostel again and I'm sorry to say, it was so horrific that it will be a while until I visit Copenhagen.
Inexpencive with good wiev of downtown
Unique Quality: A five-star hostel.
Apart from the building’s exceptionally fine view over the city’s roofs, the Opera house and Islands Brygge, it is centrally located within walking distance of the city hall square, the Tivoli, the main railway station and the pulsating life in the centre of the city
Directions: A 10-15 minuttes walk from Tivoli and the main train station (Hovedbanegården). Right beside the bridge to the island Amager.
Youth Hostel Danhostel
Danhostel is one of the biggest hostels in Europe. I stayed in floor 14th and the views are fantastic. I found it expensive, but couldn´t find anything cheaper. Accommodation in Copenhaguen is really expensive!
About the hostel: rooms are ok, just like any other european hostel from the IYH...
No sleeping bags allowed, you have to pay for the sheets, and breakfast is not included.
Unique Quality: Great views...
Directions: Near the Tivoli
Huge designer hostel.
Danhostel city is a newly opened youth hostel with more than 1000 beds.
It has a very modern look and the rooms are very nice and clean.
The place is spotless and very centrally located right behind the city hall.
Because of the size of the hostel there are sometimes long lines at the reception, but all in all this is a good budget option and if you are looking for a private room then you might even consider renting a whole room at the Danhostel city yourself.
Unique Quality: Very central location and very nice rooms.
Directions: It´s located roughly 300 meters behind Copenhagen main square where the city hall is.
Cheap and great in Copenhagen
COPENHAGEN DANHOSTEL CITY
Located in a huge building near the river, in HC Andersens Ave. Danhostel City is a great place to stay, new (opened in jul. 2004), centrally located and cheap for the prices of Copenhagen. I stayed in Dec for a few days sharing a room for 4 with 2 of my friends. We had private bathroom, but no closet!, Luckily we had a spare bed so we could left our bags there. The breakfast is pretty good, a buffet with cereals, juices, ham, cheese and different types of breads. People working there were not excessively nice, but, problaby because of the amount of people staying there, they were fully booked (17 floors!!!).
Would come back, without a doubt!
Unique Quality: We stayed at floor 11th with stunning wiews of the city center and the tivoli.
Directions: NEAR TIVOLI AND CENTRAL TRAIN STATION
