Urban House Hostel Copenhagen

When we stayed at Urban House Hostel Copenhagen, were fortunate enough to have a six bed dorm to ourselves during our visit to Copenhagen ‘out of season’.

Urban House Hostel Copenhagen opened it’s doors a few days prior to our stay, we were lucky enough to experience fresh decor, brand new beds and unused board games (with all the pieces in!).

The social area of Urban House Hostel is amazing, lots of comfy seats, bean bags, board games, and a great atmosphere. Everyone was having a good time in a mellow and ultra modern environment.

The decor is clean and quirky and the have super friendly staff working around the clock. The dorm beds were very comfortable, clean along with a perfectly sized en-suite bathroom.
