Nice Hostel and very helpful staff
This Hostel was the first one we have stayed at and I would say it was great for our family. We were five and we had a room to ourselves that was clean with nice bathrooms down the hallway. The showers were hot but you have to keep pushing them on every thirty seconds (a good idea to save water). There were maps about Copenhagen and other sites to see in town that were available in the reception area. The lady at the reception desk was very helpful and made us feel at home. They did make a mistake and booked our room with someone else after we got to our room but that was quickly resolved. The hostel sits back off of Vejlands Alle about one hundred yards, so the address is hard to find. Look for the cluster of white roofs and three flag poles out front and turn right at the next street (forgot the name) and you will see a small sign indicating the entrance to the hostel. I would definitely recommend this hostel to families looking for an inexpensive place to stay in where its easy to to take the #30 bus or walk to the metro train by Bella Center if you want to go to downtown.

  I stayed in this hostel for almost twelve days in March 2007. I was in Copenhagen to do some archival research as a part of my studies, and I chose this hostel because it was the most affordable accommodation I could find. I'd say it was as good as you could reasonably expect from a cheap hostel -- friendly service, decent rooms, good cooking facilities, and not too difficult to travel to the city center. The only disadvantage I can think of is that the room I occupied tended to get a bit stuffy which required me to have the window open frequently, and I found the showers unsavoury. All in all, I'd say that this hostel is an ok option if you're on a tight budget, but it's not what I would choose if I were in Copenhagen on a shorter vacation and had a bit more money to spend.
  The hostel lies some kilometres out of the centre in a green suburban area. It's the only hostel of our trip which required advanced payment for the booking (for one night only). Then you must pay for sheets at reception, not for towels if you don't need them. The reception is open starting from 1 p.m. only and you can't check in earlier. They only have bunk beds, not double rooms with a kingsize bed. Main entrance hall and the kitchen area are nice, but heaters aren't powerful enough to let the water boil to have a decent pasta dish. We nerver found bathrooms and toilets clean at any hour of the day or night and we think they clean them carelessly. There's not even a mirror to shave properly. Also quite annoying to use the magnetic card even to access to the toilets (who hell will enter there?). Anyway, after all, we might stay there again in case of a next stay, especially if going by plane as it's on the route of trains and buses to and from the airport. Tip for Interrailers -- you can use S-trains to and from Orestad station to visit the different zones of the city. From the hostel it's a nice thirtyminute walk. Public transports are expensive and you can save a lot of money in this way.

  stayed here for four days in July of 2006. It's really quite a hike from out of town and so finding the place -- as well as getting to and from central Kobenhavn -- can be a little difficult. The staff are friendly and generally very helpful. Overwhelmingly though, I was suprised at just how busy this place was, in the high season. There's lots of school groups as well as big families with kids. From this point of view the place didn't really have a "youth hostel" sort of spirit (demographic?). i found myself spending lots of time in town. The five-person dorm rooms are a good size and quite clean. although the two-person rooms are better by far. You need your room key to get everywhere including bathroom, which can be a pain. Showers and bathrooms are okay and clean, but can get used by lots of people. Showers also tend to cut out very quickly, so watch that. Breakfasts were a big plus. They were always very good, if a little on the pricey side. But is a good deal if you can't be bothered heading into town (especially in the heat, as it heats up quickly in summer there). The rooms seem to heat up very quickly. Overall, it is reasonable accommodation if you must stay somewhere cheap, but i feel there are better places to stay even if it means paying the extra few DKK to find a cheap hotel. Busy but reasonable hostel, as they are so busy in summer - compared with our other places we stayed, Kobenhavn has more to offer.
  This hostel is a bit out of the centre, but threre is a bus stop about one hundred meters outside the site, which takes you right into the city centre. The receptionist was very polite, friendly, and helpful. The room was nondescript, although clean and presentable and we had no problems with the showers or bathrooms. They were always very clean and tidy. The kitchen is nice and big with lots of utensils and hobs and again was always very clean. It was quite noisy at night, with people sitting outside eating, drinking, and chatting but our room was right opposite the main entrance. It's an ok hostel, clean and safe, it's just a bit "clinical" and "souless" -- but it was reasonably cheap!

  I thought it was a little icky. The rooms were fine but the bathrooms were not great. Also, the place is huge and institutional. I thought it was definitely overpriced for what was provided (a bed without sheets and an unappealing bathroom).
  This is a bit difficult to find if you're on foot or bike. The kitchen was a good meeting place and the place was clean. The reception was very helpful, providing salt for my pasta and a nice pen for my notebook on request. The only complaint is about the bathrooms. They were large and had a bit grimy feeling, which was not helped by an apparent Dutch fondness for smoking on the toilet. There were ashtrays built into every stall!
  This large hostel was very clean, and had very good facilities, including a large and clean kitchen. However, although it is possible to reach the hostel by bus, it is quite a distance from the city center, and the journey here involves a bus transfer. The place is therefore quite isolated.
