About Danhostel Copenhagen Amager

Danhostel Copenhagen Amager

Just 4 km from central Copenhagen you’ll find Danhostel Copenhagen with its beautiful buildings and wonderful view. On one side you’ll see one of Copenhagen’s newest neighborhoods with metro, shopping center, international conferences and city life. On the other side, you soon forget the pulsating city life as you are drawn into the untouched nature of the beautiful Amager Fælled.
We, the staff at Danhostel Copenhagen Amager, love the area. And we have many happy guests who return year after year. Both people visiting Copenhagen who want cheap, central and easy accommodation as well as people, who organize courses or other gatherings, and who want to do it in an uncomplicated and professional environment.

Beautiful facilities

Danhostel Copenhagen Amager is always buzzing with happy people. We offer accommodation options for every preference and economy. We offer self-service solutions for those who may desire it. Outside we have playing fields, terrace and pétanque courts. And inside we have popular lounge areas, meeting rooms and free internet.
Another popular advantage is our location: We are located close to the metro, buses and trains and offer free parking for our guests.

The manifest

We want all our guests feel at home with us. To emphasize this, we have painted our manifesto in large letters in the dining room:

The history

We are the second largest hostel in Denmark and have approximately 80,000 overnight stays each year. The original buildings were constructed in 1980 when a group of long-term unemployed young people were entrusted with the building task by Copenhagen municipality, Copenhagen County and Frederiksberg municipality. When the buildings were finished, an operating agreement was made with Danhostel, then called Danmarks Vandrerhjem.
Since then, the buildings have been renovated several times and today half of the hostel is furnished with modern family rooms with private shower, toilet and television in the rooms. The other half has nice rooms with shared bathroom and toilet facilities.
Since 2012, Malou and Lasse Uldahl Borch have been the managing couple at the hostel.

The staff

Danhostel Copenhagen Amager should also be perceived as a nice place to be by the employees. We need a vibrant workplace, characterized by good spirits and positive energy among the employees.
Without our amazing staff, it would not be possible. It is together we create the unique energy that represents the life and atmosphere of Danhostel Copenhagen Amager.
