A Former Aarhus Public Library Is Transformed into a Luxury Design Hostel

Brøchner Hotels’ first hotel outside of Copenhagen is actually not a hotel, nor is it a typical hostel. The brand is creating a hybrid hospitality concept that sits right in the middle. The new BOOK1 Design Hostel in Aarhus has all the classic hostel elements like bunk beds, laundry facilities and ping pong tables, as well as luxury hotel elements such as private rooms and suites, a sauna and unique design details. BOOK1 is perfect for the modern traveler who is looking for extraordinary experiences in hospitality and gastronomy without sacrificing budget.

BOOK1 is located in the city’s former main library from 1934, and the design hostel maintains the original architecture. Inside, guests can choose from “pod dorms” inspired by the luxury capsule hotels in Japan or private rooms that feature a sitting area separate from the sleeping area.

The food court is led by MIB, a local food entrepreneur, and offers a mix of food concepts to delight the traveling foodie, such as Nordic pizza, Danish smørrebrød and bakery goods. Additionally, the hostel’s “GO LOCAL” concept provides special treats and local offerings from shops, cafes and restaurants in Aarhus.

The lobby bar offers drinks in plus size versions and a “Bottoms Up” happy hour every day, making it a great place to meet for drinks, coffees and casual meetings.
