This post is written by Katie about her first night in Copenhagen.
Urban House Copenhagen uses an automated check-in process where you get an email and a text with a code. This code gets you access to both the house as well as an assigned room. This worked well for me.

I was assigned a 6-bed female dorm as I had booked. My lower bunk mate, a girl from Egypt who had lived in Las Angeles for a couple years, was in the room when I arrived. We chatted for a while before we both headed our separate ways to explore. She was heading to the old amusement park in downtown Copenhagen, while I decided to just wander the neighborhood for a while.
It took me a long time to track down an ATM – although in hindsight, there were many close to the house. I just did not happen to wander by any on my path for a long time. Once I had cash, I headed to Lidl to get some snacks for dinner. I ended up getting three pastries, a liter of milk, and two beers for 297 DKK (about $4.38).

With snacks in hand, I found a park surrounding a lake. There were many people with picnics sitting around the lake, so I joined them. After enjoying my dinner, I took a quick walk around the lake and headed back to Urban House.
When I went to grab my laptop from my room, I found three Norwegian girls preparing to go out for the night. They had come into town for a Beyoncé concert, but had decided to make a long weekend out of it. We chatted for a bit and then I headed downstairs to blog and catch up on my laptop. I ended up staying up later than I really should have.
