Information about our handling of the Coronavirus situation (COVID-19)

We are open to visitors and ready to welcome you.

We have chosen to adapt our daily operations and launch a number of initiatives that will make our guests and staff feel safe and secure at Danhostel Copenhagen City. We naturally follow all recommendations and guidelines from the Danish authorities.

We encourage all guests to respect the distance and contribute to the following guidelines.

NB! Before booking, we advise you to check the guidelines of your local authorities and the Danish ministry in terms of entering the country. Each country has their own guidelines for crossing borders. Danhostel Copenhagen City will not be held liable for any refund, due to issues resulting from problems entering the country.
