Liked: The staff is friendly and helpful, and the place is quite close to the city center, and the area is not bad, is surrounded by pubs and bars and museums and shops.

Disliked: The beds and the showers are from 1962 and they should be renewed as soon as possible. Although the hostel is quite safe, is not far away from a part of Copenhagen that is full of drug addicts and prostitutes. But that's not as bad as the beds and the showers. Another bad thing is the big amount of children, very noisy children, that usually are there.

Liked: This is the cheapest place in Copenhagen and is within walking distance of everything. It's very very basic but so long as you're just using it as a place to crash, its fine.

Disliked: My one complaint is that they aren't real bunk beds. I was on the lower bunk and you can't sit up fully or really at all. You also gave to crouch to get in without hitting your head and I'm of average height.

Liked: All staff were amazingly helpful, I'm a bit clumsy but had so much help from them in getting my things back. Really laid back atmosphere, easy to meet people. Nice grassy area for sunbathing. Great location just 5 minutes from the train station

Disliked: Lower bunk beds had a hook on them and a bar which were right at face level when you sat up. That was pretty painful.

Liked: Fairly well-located, you get what you pay for

Disliked: Anyone seeking creature comforts should not come here, and it often feels like staying in a military barracks, especially if you stay in a 32-bed dorm like I did. The showers have very little privacy. Security is very poor so make sure to bring a padlock with you.

Disliked: Add a nota bene that you do not supply pillow and blanket in the price. Just having it in free-flowing text ain't enough!!!

Liked: The location is quite handy and also the kitchen is really nice (although only if not used by all the guests). We also enjoyed the outside are and benches for catching some sunshine.

Disliked: There were no sockets near the beds we were assigned. Considering how many people were staying, I don't think there is sufficient number of toilets and showers. If you are going to stay, definitely bring your own bedding unless you feel like paying extra money for already overpriced and crowded rooms.
