Best places to stay:

Expert travel writer: Sarah Marshall

A high-end hostel with seriously cool credentials, perfect for urban adventurers looking for an affordable stay. Once home to the Danish Union of Metalworkers, the building has an industrial design of steel, concrete and exposed pipework; form follows function with every square inch utilized.

Dorms are divided between four and six-bed rooms, each with private pods, and there is a selection of tiny doubles and singles for greater privacy. Women-only dorms can also be requested.

Practical plus points include a laundry room, kitchen and workstations with a selection of iPads; check-in can also be done via an app with a mobile phone functioning as a room key.

Chill out in a lively games room, swimming pool and cinema, or join locals in the bar for some of the city’s cheapest craft beers.

Surrounding area

A quiet waterside setting offers an escape from the busy city, although action is never far away. Both the Central Station and Tivoli Gardens are only a 10-minute walk, while the hip Meatpacking District (a hub of restaurants and breweries in converted factories) and Vesterbro (a former red light district with gritty charm) sit on the doorstep.
