Keen to keep the krone for trips to the twirling carousels of the Tivoli Gardens and walking tours of colourful Nyhavn? Even in the sometimes pricey reaches of Scandinavia, hostels in Copenhagen can present a good balance between cost and comfort. Of course, many still offer up a taste of the fairy-tale charm of the city. They nestle in half-timbered buildings in the Indre By old town, or fringe the vibrant docksides. Inside, it's the usual mix of low-cost dorm rooms with around 10 to 12 beds apiece, private double rooms that share bathrooms and female-only sleeping quarters. And when the evening swings around? Hit the on-site bar for bouts of Scandi ale and pickles, smorgasbords of Danish cheese and beer and plenty of travel chats with fellow backpackers.

A stay to remember in hostels in Copenhagen

If you like your accommodation to have a little bit of edge and style, a hostel in Copenhagen could be the best way to go. Fuelled by youthful energy, these establishments are a mainstay for younger travellers looking for their fix of Hans Christian Andersen culture and Danish history. They can cater to all sorts. Couples are likely to be enchanted by the low-hanging ceilings, the timber-inlaid walls and the medieval past of some of the hostel buildings in the Indre By area of the city, for example. Meanwhile, young families and lovers of modern Scandi design should feel right at home in the new-build escapes of Amager and the outskirts of the capital. And there are chic lux hostels with bohemian dorm spaces in disused industrial blocks for more arty types.

Hostels in Copenhagen are always making efforts to infuse your travels with a little fun and adventure. Just mosey on down to reception and you can get free maps scrawled with local tips, bike rentals – a must in CPH – and help with booking tickets to the Tivoli. It's normal to find free or paid-for breakfasts in the offing, too. They will be typically Danish, which means strong coffee and sweet pastries to help fuel sightseeing jaunts. A number of hostels in Copenhagen also come with outdoor garden spaces, terraces or BBQ areas, allowing for a taste of al fresco life when the summer months swing around.

Choose hostels in Copenhagen to unravel the city

You might find that a hostel in Copenhagen offers a more hands-on way to experience this historic city than a classic hotel. Staff will take an active interest in how you fill your days and really help to make that trip special. In the Bedwood Hostel, that shouldn't be too hard. The stunning accommodation is located in a centuries-old mansion on the edge of the Indre By district. That's the main kernel of the old city, which means you'll never be too far from romantic strolls through cobbled streets and glimpses of the soaring Rundetaarn tower. If you can pull yourself from the cinema room, games room and buzzy common space of the Urban House Copenhagen by MEININGER, the bucket-list joys of the Tivoli Gardens are right next door, not to mention bracing summertime dips in the waters of Copenhagen marina.
