Where to Stay in Copenhagen: Urban House Copenhagen by Meininger

Whenever we travel, most of the time we stay in a hotel because we’re used to it. But when we are planning for our Scandinavian trip, hotel is not an option because I know how expensive it is. So for our Copenhagen trip, we planned to stay in AirBnb or hostel but I chose the latter because most of the AirBnb that I’ve seen is outside the city center.

I'm looking for an accommodation that is near the central station so we can save money on transportation. I searched for an affordable hostel in Copenhagen and among my list, we booked at Urban House Copenhagen by Meininger.

Urban House Copenhagen by Meininger 

Urban House Copenhagen by Meininger is only 200 meters away from København H or Copenhagen Central Station. We traveled by Ferry Boat from Oslo, so from Copenhagen DFDS Terminal Seaport, we took the train From Nordhavn St to Copenhagen Central Station then we just walked from the station. Going to the hostel is not difficult, you can check the map of their website.

Train Ticket Cost 

24DKK - one way/one adult
12DKK - one way/one child

We arrived past 11AM and check-in time is still 3PM. No early check-in but you can stay in the hostel, they have a library, pool table, kitchen, and lounge where you can kill your time.

If you don’t want to waste your time, you can store your luggage in their locker area for 5DKK per hour and start exploring the city. It is quite expensive because the locker can only fit one luggage and we have 4 big pieces of luggage. Lockers only accept coins.

Family Room or Quad Room

Urban House Copenhagen by Meininger offers dormitory, single, double and family room. We are a group of 3 adults and 1 kid so we booked the family room. The rate is 3109.35 DKK for 3 nights or PHP2000+ per person/night. It has 4 beds; beddings and towels are provided.

The pillows, duvet, and bed are comfortable. There is a small table, bench, side table, and storage.

For the bathroom, it provides toilet paper, hair, and body soap, sanitary bag, and hairdryer. No bidet. The room and bathroom are clean.

Food and Drinks 

Foods and drinks are not a problem because they have a bar where you can eat breakfast buffet, buy snacks or order packed lunches. The buffet breakfast is not yet included in the room package.

Breakfast 6:30AM to 10:30AM
Bar 11AM to 12AM
Check-in is 3PM
Check out is 11AM

Guest Kitchen 

Traveling to Europe is expensive because foods and drinks are so costly. So one thing I like in this hostel is the Guest Kitchen, we can prepare and cook our own food. We saved money because we eat breakfast and dinner at the hostel.

They provide the cooking and eating utensils, cooking stove, microwave, kettle, fridge, and even storage. You can buy your own food and store it in the kitchen but don’t forget to label your food. The most important thing is clean as you go. Yes, you are free to use the kitchen but no one will clean or wash the dishes for you.

You can also check the shelves for FREE FOOD, guests can leave their leftover food like rice, herbs, salt, sugar, cooking oil or other grocery supplies that you don’t want to bring home and you think other guests can use. There are labels that you can put so guests will know your departure date.

Washing Machine and Dryer Room 

If you run out of clothes, they have a laundry room. I just have no idea about the fee since we haven’t tried it.

Overall, we liked our stay in Urban House Copenhagen by Meininger. The room and bathroom are clean, there is a guest kitchen, it is near the Copenhagen Central Station and some bus stops, restaurants, convenience store and tourist attractions like Tivoli, City Hall, Ripley’s and more. The most important thing is FREE WIFI.

Note: They don’t accept CASH payment so make sure you have a credit card or debit card that you can use in Europe. Payment upon arrival. They provide an access code for the door.
