Copenhagen Downtown Hostel is located right next to the historic fountain on Vandkunsten Square. It was a mill pond during the middle ages and later built by Kong Christian III as the city's first pumping station in the 1600's and named Vandkunsten (the fountain). The current fountain dates from 1910 and is located on one of the oldest street signs, dating back to 1770. The square has traditionally been used for fish markets and flea markets but today it's a wonderful oasis of cafés. Around the corner you'll find the beautiful canals of Copenhagen, Christiansborg Palace housing the Parliament and the shopping mecca of Strøget, the world’s longest pedestrian street, is just a hop and a skip away.

In 2012, 2014, 2015, 2016 and in 2017 we won the 'Most Popular Hostel in Copenhagen' award at the Hoscars, chosen and given out by HostelWorld. In 2011 we became proud members of the 'Europe’s Famous Hostels' group, which placed Copenhagen as one of the main backpacker destination to visit.

We would love to see you in Copenhagen- Scandinavia's coolest city. And when you come here, don't forget to experience the coolest hostel in this city.
