Hostels in Copenhagen

Although the costs of staying in Copenhagen can be relatively high, the city offers quite a few alternatives for budget/young travellers.

Hostels can be found not only far from the city centre, as it usually is the case (and young globetrotters will surely find Copenhagen Airport Hostel to be one of the cosiest hostels they ever seen), but also in the district around the main railway station. To pick a central location makes it easy to lower the travel costs around in the city, and for airport transfer. Choosing an accommodation with a kitchenette, like i.e. in Hotel Ascot, and being able to prepare own meals is another way of cutting down the budget.

In the Danhostel youth hostels (vandrehjem in Danish), guests older than 18 YOA can stay on condition that they have a valid international hostel card or a guest card. Here are some of the most popular hostels in Copenhagen.
