How to arrive

Conveniently located close to Norreport S-Train and Metro Station with metros running directly to Copenhagen Airport taking only 15 minutes. The hostel is also very close to Copenhagen Central Station. Both stations giving easy access to the whole of Copenhagen and the rest of Denmark.
From Copenhagen Airport: Take the metro to Norreport Station, and follow this route: cross the street and go down Norregade - Nytorv - Radhustraede (all same streets). CPH Downtown is located in the square opposite the second fountain (200 m after the two little squares).
You can also take the train to Copenhagen Central Station
From Central Station: take bus 2A heading Kastrup and get off at second stop (Stormbroen), at the canal walk down Radhusstrade for 75 meters to the square. CPH Downtown is located in the square opposite the fountain.
Instead of taking the bus follow this route, you can walk the 500 meters; walk down Tietgensgade (backside of Tivoli) and keep going to Stormgade, turn left first time and then turn right at Loengangsstraede for 100 meters and you are at Vandkunsten where the hostel is.
