Visiting Copenhagen and wanting to find the nicest hostel to stay in? While we all know Scandinavia can be on the more expensive side of travel, travelling by hostel in Copenhagen doesn’t mean you have to give up all the creature comforts – especially if you stay with Steel House Copenhagen.

First things first…
First things first, Steel House Copenhagen (official website here) is a luxury Copenhagen hostel where you have both the option of dorm or private room. The surrounding interior and exterior of the rooms, hallways, lobby and building has been self-described as ‘industrial chic’ and this is a description that is easy to agree with.
Where is Steel House Copenhagen located?
You can find Steel House Copenhagen just slightly outside (but still very much in walking distance) of the city centre (Google Maps location here). Situated alongside one of the many canals in the city and only an eight minute walk to Copenhagen Central Station (with direct links to Copenhagen Airport). While we stayed here we walked everywhere including to the Copenhagen harbour, Freetown Christiania, and the Meatpacking District – so if you don’t mind getting about on your feet this is a great location to stay in.
Steel House Copenhagen hostel rooms
We stayed in a 4 bed hostel dorm room on the top floor of Steel House Copenhagen. Our room came with a large ensuite bathroom, three balconies (yes, three! – although we kept the doors closed due to the insects from the surrounding greenery), lockers, individual charging ports and floor space to spread out a bit. You can find out more about the rooms on offer here.
What extras do you get at Steel House Copenhagen?
When you stay at Steel House Copenhagen hostel there are a number of facilities that are on offer. These include free wifi, a kitchen, gym, pool, games room, cinema room, bar, bike hire and ample space to spread out and relax. A lot of these facilities had an additional price included, meaning if you don’t want to use them you don’t have to pay. You can find all the up-to-date information and what’s on offer here. These extras certainly bring the level up from hostel to more and is one of the reasons why this hostel can be such a good base while you explore Copenhagen.
Things to do in Copenhagen
We really enjoyed our weekend exploring Copenhagen, and with Steel House Copenhagen as our base we were able to explore so much of the city in just a few short days. A few of the things we did in Copenhagen are below:
- Walking tour – we joined the Politically Incorrect Walking Tours (tip based walking tour) which collected us from our hostel and taught us a lot about Denmark’s history in a funny way.
- Freetown Christiana
- Church of our Saviour (for the views!)
- Boat hire (one of the best things we did in Copenhagen!)
- Copenhagen harbour
- Rosenborg Palace
