          It is a good trip. But I have some suggestions. It would be even better to have a curtain on the bed of mixed dorms. The check out time is a little early. I think it is better to after 12:00 am. Thats all.

          Is there a place for storing our luggage before checking in such as lockers or the front desk? We will be in Copenhagen for about 6 hours before check in?

          Yes, they do have lockers. I remember them being a little expensive, though.

          Given that there is a smoking ban with large fine. I smelt weed (illegal drugs) being smoked out the window of the room next to me, I had to smell it in my bed as did other guests one morning not long ago. Why is this tolerated or allowing some guests to get away with 1) smoking in the rooms (at the window to avoid the smoke alarm) and 2) smoking ILLEGAL PROHIBITED SUBSTANCES (Weed) which has a DISTINCTIVE smell and unavoidable.
