Fantastic location, walking distance to everything really
Fahmy, gb2 night trip with friends
Exceptional 10.0
The shower is not hot enough. Don't quite like the hostel charging DKK 50 for renting the cover sheets. Very beautiful and impressive view from the window of the room. Curtains outside of every bed are clever designs. Very clean, nice words on each room very interesting.

Weekend stay somewhere different
A great weekend retreat in Aarhus. Okay it could do with a makeover and not everyone is into dorm style accommodation but it’s hard to beat for location and the on-site cafe takes the stress out of where to go for a snack.

Great Hostel
Wow! Best hostel I've stayed in. Felt very comfortable here, and with curtains and lockable storage under the beds, I felt privacy/security was good.
Steven, gb1 night trip
Good 6.0
Not too great for families
Pros: location, price. Cons: everything else. Carpets were visibly stained, rooms were musty, bathroom was fairly dirty probably due to large number of guests using (appeared to be cleaned daily). Noise was only moderate, mainly doors opening and banging shut all night. We stayed in a 4 person room for our family and to access the shared bathroom required going out to the hall then unlocking a door then finding the bathroom door - not an easy set up for kids.

Room was functional but basic with a central location

It’s so warm and comfort staying this place.
Great comfort, fantastic environment as it’s a big dorm and lots of people to interact. The internet is fast which is first my preference and location is at the center as it’s easy to walk to Dokk1 and bus stations(saves our cost) The only thing you may need to consider is the shower. There is no control , sometimes you get warm and sometimes it’s a bit hot. Not a big issue but better to be informed. Everything is spacious. So all good here!

Great, cosy hostel
Did the job for a two night stay with close access to everything in the city centre. Quiet street but near great bars.

Hostel that is well run and laid out
Good size dorm room; comfortable bed; good locker; helpful staff; well equipped shared kitchen; good lounge space; about 12-15 minute walk from train/bus station; cramped shower facilities; use of washing machine/dryer expensive

Really enjoyed my stay. The number of shared bunks in the room was large but wasn't a bother as we had blackout curtains with each bunk to provide privacy. There are bins beneath beds for storage and a kitchen (with fridge) to cook with. Reception has fixed hours and not too many food options but no big deal (there is coffee). Note: Sheets and towel not included but available for 50kr and 20kr at front desk. The city is pretty accessible from the hostel by foot.
