Copenhagen has many hotels to choose from, and there is something for every taste and budget. We strongly recommend you to keep watching prices, as they may go up and down when big travel agencies make or release block reservations. Therefore we also recommend you check with travel agencies and with major booking sites (such as and, because they may have rooms that are already sold-out at a hotel’s own website.

Location-wise, we suggest something in the inner city (postal code Copenhagen “K”), something close to the central train&bus station, or something close to any metro station (because the metro is a very fast way of getting into downtown).


There are a number of recommendable hostels in downtown. As they are hostels, you may be sharing some facilities depending on your room type, but they are affordable and often have other travelers around.
Danhostel Copenhagen City (H.C. Andersens Boulevard 50, 1553 Copenhagen V). This is a very large and new hostel, located on the main street through the city, 800m from the central train station and from City Hall Square.
Copenhagen Downtown Hostel (Vandkunsten 5, 1467 Copenhagen K). A hip and popular hostel in what is probably the most central location you can be, in the middle of the inner city.
Copenhagen Backpackers Hostel (Reventlowsgade 10A, 1651 Copenhagen V). This hostel is located immediately next to the central train station.
Generator Hostel Copenhagen (Adelgade 5, 1304 Copenhagen K). This hostel is also located centrally, close to Nyhavn and the downtown metro station.

There are many hotels in Copenhagen. Some suggestions for 2-3 star hotels are:
Wakeup Copenhagen (Borgergade 9, 1300 Copenhagen K). This new hotel is close to the downtown metro station.
Wakeup Copenhagen (Carsten Niebuhrs Gade 11, 1577 Copenhagen V). This hotel is in walking distance of the central station, but just outside of downtown.
Cabinn (several locations in Copenhagen). This is a series of inexpensive and basic hotels located in major Danish cities.
Park Inn (Engvej 171, 2300 Copenhagen S). This modern hotel is next to a metro station, and very close to the beach.

There are some Bed & Breakfast options in Copenhagen, and a number of Airbnb hosts if you prefer renting people’s private accommodations.

Home hospitality
We will try to provide home hospitality to as many ECM participants as possible, on a first-come first-serve basis, but will not be able to offer it to everyone. Therefore, please consider if you can afford a hostel or hotel, so that home hospitality will go to those of you who will benefit most from it.

Home hospitality requests must be made together with registration, at the ECM registration form (which is expected to go online at the end of December).
