About Danhostel Copenhagen Amager
Just 4 km from the centre of Copenhagen is Danhostel Copenhagen, with its attractive buildings and beautiful views. On one side, guests can see Copenhagen’s newest districts, with their metros, shopping centres, international conferences, and city bustle. On the other side, the visitor soon forgets the pulse of the city and is instead drawn to the untouched countryside of the beautiful Amager Fælled.
Those of us who work at Danhostel Copenhagen Amager love this area – and we have lots of happy customers who return year after year: visitors to Copenhagen, those looking for cheap, central, and convenient accommodation, and those who organise courses and other events, and who want to do so in an uncomplicated and professional environment.
Danhostel Copenhagen Amager is always buzzing with cheerful people. We have nightly accommodation to suit all tastes and budgets, and we offer self-service solutions for those who want them. Outside, we have playgrounds, terraces and petanque courts, while indoors we have popular lounge areas, conference rooms and free Wi-Fi.
Another popular advantage is our location: We are close to metro, bus, and train transport links, and we provide free parking for guests.
With around 80,000 overnight stays a year, we are the second-biggest hostel in Denmark. The original buildings date from 1980, when a group of long-term unemployed young people were given a building assignment by Copenhagen Municipality, Copenhagen County and Frederiksberg Municipality. Once the buildings had been finished, a management agreement was signed with Danhostel, known at the time as Danmarks Vandrerhjem.
Since then, the buildings have been renovated several times, and half the hostel is now fitted out as modern family rooms with private bathrooms and toilets, and TVs in the rooms. The other half consists of pleasant rooms with shared bathrooms and toilets.
The couple Malou and Lasse Uldahl Borch have been running the hostel since 2012.
