We recently came back from a five-day trip to Copenhagen, Denmark. It was one of our best trips so far, we had time to see a lot of things, we met great people and we were (mostly) lucky with the weather. There’s a lot to say about the trip, so I will divide it into a few separate posts.
We stayed in Woodah Hostel, a small hostel with two dorm rooms and one double room, as well as a vegetarian café. It’s located at Abel Cathrinesgade 1-3 (Vesterbro), a few blocks away from the Copenhagen central station. We stayed in the 8 bed dorm which cost 33 € per bed, per night. The price includes bed linens, a locker with padlock and a vegetarian breakfast. They also have a donation based yoga class most mornings, if enough people have signed up the night before.
We simply loved the place. Even though it is located in Copenhagen’s red light district, we never felt unsafe there. It’s simple and cozy and the atmosphere is great. The staff is very nice and easy to talk to, the breakfast is mostly vegan and we met some great people there. It was not hard to feel at home. Since you sleep in a dorm room and people come and go at different hours, the sleep will of course not be great if you are a light sleeper like me, but the bunk beds were built in a way that you could have privacy while sleeping (see picture below). If I would mention something negative about the hostel it would be the fact that it doesn’t have a kitchen for the guests, so you can’t save money during a longer stay by cooking your own food, but for us this was not really a problem.
I definitely recommend this place if you are going to Copenhagen!
