Globalhagen Hostel, hotel in Copenhagen

Located in the vibrant Nørrebro district in Copenhagen, this nonprofit hostel is driven by volunteers.

Good downtown location along quiet street about 10 minute walk to metro. Private room size was OK, but not a lot of room for double bed. Nights were quiet in the hostel, so that was a definite plus.

    Kind staff well oriented to help and fix problems. The outlet in my bed didn't work and they inmediately changed me to another room before the check in. It was a better accomodation without extra charge. Good service. Really comfortable bed, good wifi conection, clean room, capsules with code which give you privacy and so safe to keep your belogings inside. Better location imposible, just in the Nyhavn. And all this for a cheap price. It exceeded my expectations, I would be glad to come back to this hostel

    Great combo of hotel & hostel. My solo room was bright, clean, and comfortable, though small. Lots of social space--games, pub, outdoor seating, events, buffet breakfast with good variety. Can mingle or be alone comfortably. Staff very friendly, helpful, and efficient. Great location--just two blocks from Kongens Nytorv & very close to many historic sites! Felt very safe. I'll stay here again!

    Rooms were really clean, small but good organized. I really liked how they put four people who had the same check in and check out date. Other than that the kitchen is very cheap to use, with a lot of options. I can easily say it was the best hostel I have ever stayed.

    Copenhagen is expensive, and this is a really good budget option. I had a private room with shared bathroom and was very pleased all round. The Hostel is busy with a seemingly non stop bar and warnings about it being a noisy place. I wasn't disturbed at all up on the 4th floor. My room was quite quirky with a train carriage theme - 2 bunk beds and a very comfy double. Shared bathroom directly across the corridor, which was very convenient. And a great location for exploring the city.
