Aarhus Hostel

In the Aarhus suburb of Hasselager you will find Aarhus Hostel, which has been full of life for over 100 years. First as a free and continuing school, then as a senior college and now as a hostel since 2013. Many of the premises are preserved so when you spend the night at Aarhus Hostel you can experience a very special high school atmosphere. Here you can live in cozy surroundings with a nice green area and with good opportunities for long walks and runs.

Aarhus Hostel has 37 rooms with up to 4 people and has either a private or shared bathroom. Guests have access to free WI-FI, free parking, living room with TV and board games, guest kitchen, disc golf, outdoor kitchen, laundry room, fire pit and good outdoor areas to enjoy nature.

The rooms that were used as lecture halls, teaching rooms and dining rooms have been preserved, so that guests can hold parties or company events and at the same time have the opportunity to spend the night.

With good bus connections and only 10 km to Aarhus Midtby, you can easily leave the car and take the bus into the city. We have set up charging stations for electric cars and are a Green Mobility hotspot, which means guests can park, charge and pick up a green mobility electric car in the courtyard.

Aarhus and the area

Being Denmark’s second city, Aarhus is the centre of a region filled with dynamic and creative cities, unique countryside scenery with a beautiful national park not to mention world-class art and cultural activities. And we are happy to share it all with you. In the cities of the region, historical surroundings set the perfect scene for a creative and vibrant town life with exciting attractions, shopping and ample opportunity to get a taste of Danish cuisine based on fresh, locally produced ingredients.

Furthermore, the region holds amazing natural scenery as far as the eye can see: 360 km of unspoiled, blue coastline and white beaches frame the magnificent and ever changing landscape with lakes, streams, forests, hills and an endless number of breathtaking lookout points.

The city holding the prestigious title as European Capital of Culture 2017 has led to the cultural scene in Aarhus and the Aarhus Region being at its strongest ever. This attracts visitors from all over the world and puts Aarhus in the lead as Denmark’s number one tourist attraction outside of Copenhagen in terms of geography and tourism turnover.

About 60% of the rooms in Aarhus are eco-labeled after Wakeup Aarhus has received Green Key.
