Perfect for families with children

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 8, 2014

Although the hostel's some 4km away from the city centre, my niece and I were satisfied with all the facilities. We stayed in a 5-bed female dorm which was really clean. We brought our own towels and bed linen, because we didn't want to pay extra money for these.
The bathroom and the toilet are shared.
The girls at the reception, open around the clock, were really helpful and kind, especially when we had to complain about other guests.
You can check in after 1pm and check out before 10am.

Unique Quality: There's a guest kitchen with a fridge, oven, pots and pans, where you can make your own meals. There's also a kiosk selling bread rolls or sandwiches, vending machines with ice cream and drinks, a laundry room, lounge area and cyber café.
There are also 2 large playgrounds, perfect for families with small children.

Directions: Bus 30 from the Central Station to Bella Center, bus stop Bella Center Vest, then cross the street

Not a five star hostel, but not bad

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 30, 2008

Room was quite big and the bathroom was ok (reasonably clean and roomy). Great view. Check-out was at 10 am. The hostel is quite big (meaning a lot of people checking out at the same time) and there were only two lifts so we had to carry our bags down the stairs..not easy as our room was on sixth floor.

Unique Quality: Confusing pricing as they charge extra for towel + sheets and for not having international hostel card. They also expect you to clean the room and take trash out when you leave (they said that it´s because they don´t charge hotel prices they don´t offer hotel services..)

Directions: Central

It's Worth Every Penny!

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)

It's not easy to find budget accommodation in Copenhagen. Copenhagen Danhostel is a five-star youth hostel which offers comfort for the price you pay. Probably the best budget accommodation in town.

Location-wise, it is a walking distance from the Central Station (around 15 minutes). It is located on Hans Christian Andersen Boulevard, where a lot of Copenhagen's main attractions are located. Just two minutes walk down the boulevard is the Ny Carlsberg Glyptoteket, and Tivoli Garden right next. Just across Tivoli Garden is The Dansk Design Centre, and Radhuspladsen (a main square in Copenhagen) next to it. Cross the road is Stroget, claimed to be the longest pedestrian shopping street in the world.

Rooms are available for one to eight person, ranging from DKK150 to DKK780 (around €20 to €120 / US$25 to US$125). All rooms / dorms are en-suite.

Linens & towels are not included in the price, but can be rented at around DKK60 (€8 / US$10) for the whole stay.

Breakfast are also not included, but there's a cafe which offers meals at reasonable price.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for everyone - solo-travellers, group travellers, family and even business travellers!!

Unique Quality: * PERFECT location - right at the heart of Copenhagen city.
* Friendly staffs.
* Great lobby with modern interior.
* Card-keys.
* Internet facilities (there's a little price to pay)
* Clean :)
* Great views (especially if you get a top-floor room overlooking the river)

Directions: From the Central Station main entrance, go right, then the 1st left. Go straight ahead until you reach the main entrance of Tivoli Garden (on your left), take a right pass the Ny Carlsberg Glyptoteket, a couple of minutes walk later it's on your right.

The only problem that you have to take a bus or metro to go to the city center.

Cheap Sleeps in Copenhagen

by written on July 15, 2005

The next time you're in Denmark on a shoe-string budget, stay in a "Vandrerhjem" (say van-dra-yeem) or hostel. There'll a couple of choice picks over here other than the Bellahoj ( say be-la-hoy) hostel I stayed in. Amongst all, the Amager is the quietest hostel. The rest are convenient pads just to rest your heads..

1)Sleep-In Green Hostel - Located in Norrebo, hip place, but pals tell me that this place is noisy. Cost/per bed-10.75 EUR

2)Amager Hostel - This humongous hostel has a huge glass roof. This was my second choice if Bellahoj wasn't available. It's comfy but a tad out of the way.

3)YMCA Interpoint
Valdemarsgade 15, Copenhagen, Tel 3131 1574 . Now this place has no website and it's available only in July and Aug. Call to book.

Wonderful view

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on May 10, 2005

It is located just a few minutes walk from Tivoli and the trendy Vesterbro district. From the windows you have a wonderful view over the city and the Copenhagen Harbour.

Unique Quality: With almost 700 beds, this will be one of Europe's largest city budget hostels and every room has design furniture. When you arrive at the Copenhagen Central Station, you can walk to the new youth hostel in ten minutes and enjoy a good night's rest for DKK 120 per night. Danhostel Copenhagen City opened 2005 and is Europe's largest city hostel. Just across the water is Islands Brygge, where young Copenhageners enjoy getting together during the summer months. There is a harbour swimming pool, a green lawn for sunbathing and cafés, where you can hang out. Nearby is trendy Vesterbro with its lounge bars, nightclubs, retro-kitsch boutiques and cool design shops. From the top of the hostel building you have view over the green spires and rooftops of Copenhagen, the new Opera House and the coming and going of ships in the harbour.

Nice atmosphere...

This hostel was one of the first places I stepped in in Copenhagen.

Very well organized, it is not very near from downtown, but there are many buses going to that direction.

I have got nice tips talking to some other travellers during our TV or laundry sessions.

Cezar from Mexico, Hege from Norway are two of the travellers I met there once...

Unique Quality: Very good breakfest...

Youth hostel

by written on February 3, 2003

I spent three nights in this nice hostel in 1999 and I would recommend it to anyone. It is a very clean hostel with fine rooms. The hostel was very crowded when I was there.
It is located a few km from Central Station but it´s easy to take the bus downtown (or even the metro now, I don´t know).

Unique Quality: The breakfast buffet was very nice.

Copenhagen Hostels

by written on October 31, 2002

This hostel is huge. It's said to be the biggest in Europe but, having said that, it doesn't feel like it. It has very good facilities.
To get there take bus 100S - a 14Krone bus ticket (which is valid for an hour) will get you there.

Unique Quality: This hostel is out in the sticks, about 5km out from the center of Copenhagen. It doesn't have any shops in the immediate facility so shop in town for groceries etc.

A great place to stay...

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)

We stayed at the Danhostel Copenhagen Amager.
There is a 10-minute bus service a short distance from the youth hostel. At night, buses run every 30 minutes.
The bus journey from the hostel to the airport and to Rådhuspladsen (Townhall) only takes about 25 minutes.

Unique Quality: Breakfast was excellent, the best of all the hostels we stayed in while we were in Europe. The rooms were nice too.
