Global Goals

Copenhagen's most sustainable hostel?


We must take good care of our planet - and each other!

At Danhostel Copenhagen City, we want to create a sustainable hostel. That is why we have implemented the UN's global goals in our strategy. Scroll down to see our actions, which are becoming more and more ...


We would love to hear from you if you come up with an idea for a good, sustainable initiative that you think we should put in place as part of our contribution to UN's global goals.

Write us an email at with your suggestion.

We are looking forward to hearing from you!


We save on water - with you!

Aguardio Sensor

In 2019, we have installed Aguardio sensorer in several of our bathrooms. It helps our guests remember to take shorter baths to save on the water.

The average European use about 40 liters of water when taking a shower. It takes on average 6½ minutes. At our hostel you can use your new sensor to tiem your shower. If you are faster than the 6½ minutes, you have helped save water.

This approach meets world goals 6, 12 and 13.


We write with ECO-friendly pens

Recycled plastic and cork

In 2019, we replaced all our pens to ecological and reusable pens made of recycled plastic and cork.

This approach meets world goals 12, 13 and 14.

2 million liters of water saved each year.

One-armed fixtures 

In 2013, ENCO Plumbing replaced all hoses and shower heads at Danhostel Copenhagen City's 196 rooms, which has resulted in us saving 2 million liters of water annually, in addition to the energy needed to heat the water.

This approach meets world goals 6, 12 and 13.

We weigh our food waste

Eat up! 

In 2019, we started weighing our food waste during breakfast. When you eat breakfast at our buffet, you can help us reduce food waste. Every day, we weigh all the food our guests throw out. It makes guests and staff aware of keeping down the amount of food waste.
