Get FREE parking when you stay with us

No need to calculate with an expensive parking charge in your holiday budget when you stay at Danhostel Copenhagen City. If you want to travel by car to Copenhagen, you won’t have to worry about parking! We offer free parking in our two parking facilities in Valby and Frederiksberg, only 5 kilometers from hostel.

So, if you don’t plan to use your car while you are in the inner city, we recommend that you leave the car in one of our parking facilities until departure. When parking in our facilities, you not only save the parking fee - you also won’t have to look for a parking space in the jammed Copenhagen.

NOTE! It is important that you register your car at our reception before driving to the car park and that you park exactly according to our instructions. The facilities have license plate recognition and ongoing checks, and if you have not registered it with us before parking, or if you park at a different parking space than the ones we have designated, you will receive a parking ticket.

Here's how you do it:

  1. Book a stay with us here on our website
  2. Take the car to the hostel to drop off your and check in at our reception (Attention! Remember that it costs to park in the streets around the hostel while checking in, for example via EasyPark)
  3. Register your car at check-in - ask at reception for free parking. You will be asked to type in your license plate and phone number. Please make sure you type correctly and that you receive a confirmation SMS afterwards. This is important!
