The Paris of the North
Backpacking in Copenhagen is an affordable way for singles, couples and even families to explore the city. Many hostels are within easy walking distance of public transport, Tivoli, restaurants, pubs, nightclubs, the Stroget, and supermarkets. Most backpacking accommodation in Copenhagen is situated conveniently near the hip and cozy quarter of Vesterbro (the former red light district), and the Latin Quarter. Nearby surroundings host a great variety of shopping, cafés and dining opportunities: from Japanese sushi bars, Thai kitchens, French cuisine and Danish steaks to second-hand retro clothes shops and cool design stores.
The Norrebro area also provides a variety of hostels ranging in price from about 20 - 30 Euros per night. Not all hostels include breakfast or towels and linen in dorm prices, but expect standardized clean, safe and secure rooms with 24 hour reception, access to the internet and self catering facilities. Backpackers in Copenhagen can also expect the largest hostel in Europe. Arrangements can also be made for backpackers to explore beyond the city such as day trips to Helsingor and Roskilde.
