What do our guests say?
Here at Danhostel Copenhagen Amager, we are fully aware that no two courses are the same, and that a course organiser and host for a team of course participants may often need an invisible partner in the background.
Below, you can meet two of our guests who have both held courses at Danhostel Copenhagen Amager:
I need a place that makes me curious
Whenever Ole Terp, the owner of Terp Innovation, plans his courses, he focuses on one thing in particular every time: the course venue has to be special and it has to arouse his curiosity.
In 2012, Ole Terp held four communications courses for employees in the HK (salaried employees’) union’s unemployment insurance fund. All of these courses were held at Danhostel Copenhagen Amager because, as he puts it, “The venue is just the right environment for these courses: a location on the green space of Fælleden that prompts creative thinking, wonderful staff who contribute to the positive energy around the people attending my courses, and the conference facilities and rooms themselves, which are high quality without being extravagant.”
A comfortable enviroment
Ole Terp is from West Jutland, and perhaps that is why he can’t help mentioning the price. It is cheap to stay at Danhostel Copenhagen Amager! Not because that is a decisive factor for his courses, but it does provide a good indicator of the fact that the value of the course will be in its content and in what is taught – not in luxurious catering and cognac with the coffee.
“The people attending my courses need to be challenged at an intellectual level, and they get that challenge from me during the training. During the evening and in breaks in training sessions, they need a pleasant environment for socialising where they can recharge their batteries and get to know each other. Danhostel Copenhagen Amager provides a comfortable environment that quickly helps guests to relax and feel at home. As a guest, you feel as if you are being invited in to the family, and within no time you’re on first-name terms with everyone – the chef, the receptionist and the cleaner – even if, like my course participants, you’re typically only here for 1½ days. You can’t put a price on that,” concludes Ole Terp with a smile.
