It's not often that I'd say the best part of my trip was the hostel! If you go to a hostel hoping to meet other people, make new friends, etc. this is the place to stay in Copenhagen. As a solo traveller, I've stayed at many hostels but this is by far the most sociable one I've stayed in in...

The hostel has a great location with a great atmosphere and bar downstairs. The staff were friendly and helpful. I stayed on the second floor for 2 nights and it was quite noisy in the morning due to construction. The bathrooms were also not as clean as one would want, there was constantly a pool of water in there.. it...

We are renovating our hostel and as a part of our renovation efforts we are improving our bathroom on the floors, and we apologize if you were bothered by the noise in the morning. On the other hand it is nice to know you liked our location, we are...

The staff was amazing and so was the atmosphere! The bar area was a very cool place to meet people, especially if you're traveling alone! The rooms and facilities were pretty nice. The bar serves cheap drinks and they offer good breakfast/dinner! The location was very close to the train station and city center. The prices for the dorms were...

I am not the complaining type, but I have been in too many hostels not to say something about this one. I don't even know from where I should start. Do you ever clean anything in the hostel? The toillets and showers are never clean, the room floors are so dusty and even the lockers are extremely dirty, meaning that...

My stay here was absolutely incredible. The location is perfect, the rooms are nice, and I met so many people. The staff was especially great. Me and my friend spent a lot of time hanging out with some of the bartenders, Eddie, Vito, Tiago, and Henry. They were all terrific and I would definitely recommend this place!

I had a great time staying here in Copenhagen. CDH is located in a great area where you can easily get to anywhere in the city. Friendly staff, cheap and good food, fun people, great energy. If you book online, a free breakfast buffet is included in your stay and that made the nightly price worth it since food is...

Pluses: Nice location, friendly staff, really good breakfast and fairly clean place with a cozy lounge Minuses: Only 2-3 showers for each floor, and shower time was restricted to 7-10am in the morning, which for me was weird. Also, lockers cost money! They are fancy and automatic, so you can be sure the stuff in there is safe, but if...

Staying in Indre By (Inner City)

Neighbourhood Profile
Indre By (Inner City)
This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its blend of charming old buildings and bold new architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which consists of three buildings, two of which are new and situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and venues of the inner city and its surrounding neighborhoods, are alive all year round with everything from jazz festivals to outdoor ice skating rinks and parachuting at the lakes right in the center of the city. This compact area boasts beautiful old castles, tranquil parks, and bustling squares where you can always find a bench to stretch out your legs whenever you need a break.
